You might have heard the big news which is that Sony announced the PlayStation 4 yesterday. It is a pretty big deal considering that the PlayStation 3 has been around for quite a while, but one of the many questions the community has been asking is, where is the actual console? Sony revealed some of the features they would be bringing to the PlayStation 4, along with the new DualShock 4 controller, but they have yet to reveal the actual console itself. This was rather strange but when the folks at Kotaku raised the question to the president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, it seems that they chose not to reveal the console simply because they wanted to keep some of the surprise for later.
“We really wanted to explain what we’ve done with the DualShock 4, but as far as the system itself we have to keep something new for later. Otherwise you’d get bored.” It seemed a bit odd considering Sony went all out at today’s event, bringing plenty of developers on stage to show off the console’s potential, so we’re not sure why they did not choose to reveal the actual console itself. Either way with E3 taking place in the middle of the year, perhaps Sony might be using that opportunity to reveal the console, or maybe even earlier if we’re lucky. In any case what do you guys think? Should Sony have just revealed everything at one go, or do you think this is a good way to keep people in suspense and interested, especially in the face of the possibility that Microsoft could be unveiling their next-gen console as well?
