PlayStation 4: News & Announcements

Sony has thrown down the gauntlet in the next phase of the perpetual battle between gaming console manufacturers, and the PlayStation 4 has officially been unveiled. The news came as something of a surprise too. It was no secret that Sony was working on a PS4, and has been for years, but to announce it this early was a bold move. Perhaps the manufacturer learned its lesson with the PS3 launch. After giving Nintendo and Microsoft a huge head start, it took nearly five years to catch up. The announcement of the PS4 puts the pressure on Microsoft, and could steal what momentum the Wii U has going into the eighth generation of consoles.

But even with the unveiling, this is just the beginning. The reveal brings with it plenty of questions that will be answered slowly over the following months until the new system is released. For now, here’s what we know.
