The reveal of Sony for the PlayStation 4 last Feb 20 drew mixed reactions from both cyberpress and gamers. Some were wowed by the videos of the games, some said the controller was revolutionary. Still, some were pissed that there was no actual unit of the PS4 shown during that day.
Sony boss, Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, even asked “Why do you care?” when asked about the topic.
But here’s what his official statement read:
“As far as the DualShock 4 is concerned we wanted to do the live demo. And we were like, yeah, we have to show the controller, because it’s awkward not to show the controller when someone is doing a demo. And also the feature that the DualShock 4 has, the share button, is a very key idea behind the design of the PS4… 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.”
So yeah, no console. Yet.
So we all have something to rave, troll and debate about.
In the meantime, check out the new specs of the PS4 and the actual teaser video.
