A Week After The PS4 Announcement

Sony took center stage and teased (well, a two hour tease) game-play  specs, a whole new 'social' aspect and even the controller of the Playstation 4.

But not the actual PS4.

Whilst many are left confused and some even angry by Sony's bizarre move, I myself, don't see the problem. The actual physical design of the PS4 isn't as important as the stuff they actually revealed; regardless of whether it's pretty or ugly; if it can play gorgeous games, what's the problem? Of course, I hope the actual box is deliciously sexy, but if it isn't? I guess I'll just have to live with it, because in the long run, I'm not buying it on it's looks; I'm buying it to be a part of the next-gen.

Sony approached the reveal with one thing in mind - the consumer, and, more importantly; the gamers.
Whereas Microsoft have turned their current console, the 360, from a hardcore elite into a "it's a whole entertainment box" over the last year, with far fewer Xbox exclusives than that of Sony's PS3 and instead opting to deliver video apps and family Kinect titles rather than AAA killer exclusives.
With the PS4, Sony made it abundantly clear this is going to be a console for the hardcore gamer, and whilst we can safety assume it will offer the same multi-media functions as the current PS3 (if not more), they couldn't emphasise enough that the PS4 was all about the games.

And what games they brought; see for yourself.
