Sony launches PlayStation 4 game console

Sony launched the PlayStation 4 at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York's Manhattan Center, the first of a new generation of consoles. Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 would go on sale this Christmas. It refused to set a price, or even show the console itself.

The new gaming console runs on PC chips meaning it won't be able to play games created for any of the three previous PlayStations. Developers say the new technology opens up new possibilities.

Sony has redesigned the controller, which remained more or less unchanged through the PlayStation 2/3 era, giving it a curvier shape, a touchpad and a blue reflector strip that interacts with a PlayStation Eye camera (included in the price) to form a motion-sensing system. It will connect with smartphones – Sony makes a range of Android phones – enabling phone users to chat with PS4 gamers and to control their PS4s remotely.
