Sony has unveiled its next-generation gaming system, PlayStation 4, according to a Feb. 20 Yahoo Finance News report. The company says that the console will be part of a new ecosystem focused on hardware, software and “the fastest, most powerful gaming network,” according the Yahoo Finance News. “Our long-term vision is to reduce download times of digital titles to zero,” said Mark Cerny, Sony's lead system architect on the PS4.
“We've created a platform attuned to the evolving needs of players,” said Andrew Hall, Sony Computer Entertainment's president. “It's like a PC in many ways, but supercharged. The processing power of the system is an exponential leap over its predecessors,” lead architect Cerny added.
This new console is reportedly the company’s first major game machine since the debut sale of PlayStation 3. The PS4’s revisions which target hardcore gamers include an updated controller, adding a light bar, touchpad, motion control and a “share button.”
According to Yahoo Finance News, Wednesday’s unveiling of the new console, is “Sony Corp.'s attempt to steal the spotlight, at least until Microsoft Corp. unveils its next Xbox in June, as expected, at the E3 video game expo in Los Angeles.” The Japanese electronics giant has reportedly struggled to keep up with rivals including Microsoft, Apple Inc., and Samsung Electronics Co, and is promising new enhanced products such high tech digital cameras as part of a strategic comeback effort.
The PlayStation 4 will launch in time for “holiday 2013,” but Sony did not reveal a specific date or a price, according to NBC News.
