PlayStation 4 hardware teased by Sony hours before next Xbox unveil

Sony publishes 39-second video showing obscured shots of the PlayStation 4 hardware; full unveil at E3 2013.

by

Sony has teased shots of the PlayStation 4 hardware hours before Microsoft is due to announce its next-generation Xbox.

The 39-second video shows a blurred black box, which is presumably the PlayStation 4 hardware, along with numerous quick, close-up shots of various parts of the hardware. "See it First at E3," says the video.

Shots in the trailer show close-ups of corners, vents, and a circular edge. The Dual Shock 4 controller can also be seen.

The teaser ends with the time and date of Sony's E3 2013 press conference: June 10 at 18:00 PDT.

Sony announced the PlayStation 4 in February, though the hardware was not shown and Sony said its design was not yet finalised. The next-generation console is due to be released globally later in 2013.

I don't know if that's a teaser trailer of what it will be, or if that's just a black box to capture our imaginations until E3.

A big black box, nice. These fanboy dogs are eating it up though, creating excitement and exclusivity.

I think it's fine, as long as it's better than the PS3 - I'm not saying the PS3 sucks.

For the Xbox One however... Eh.

There is something funny about both PS4 and XBOX ONE announcements. I don't really feel like there's a great generation leap between current gen and the upcomming next gen. Sure games look great but I still don't see the WOW factor there. I remember when 360 and PS3 were revealed... man now THAT was a thing to marvel at. Gotta wait until they show us more at E3... really hope to say Wow!!!... but not for now

I don't give a shit about consoles any more , they're all basically the same , same hardware and other minor differences , PC is better than console , offers a lot more content wise and game wise (graphics , mechanics and physics) .

I'm a little curious to see what the PS4 looks like but this teaser did absolutely nothing for me....Teasing what console looks like seems kind of silly..... Everyone knows why they did it but if there were really wanting to steal some thunder from Xboxs announcement I think they could have done something more interesting than console vents.. 


If they were smart they would have kept an exciting first party exclusive for today and released a teaser for it with the tagline "Come see us at E3'.. That would have gotten people talking more than... OOh did you see that vent! Awesome!!

Well I am going to watch the Xbox Next Generation launch, just to see how long it takes them to get to the point?

Honestly, I have matchsticks ready to jam in my eyelids and everything.

In the interest of balance, I have to say Sony at least only took 35 seconds to say and show us nothing, this time around... For that I praise them.

not like they need guts, its just a console...I honestly don't see the big deal behind a reveal

that trailer was probably the stupidest trailer i've seen for a console release....like wtf why not just show us the damn thing, the screenshots weren't even enough to get me hyped up about it...

regardless of the teaser its a teaser there not going to show off the console in a teaser thats the whole point of a teaser so they blur'd it off and teased vents and so on to get us excited and guess whats going on there otherwise if they did show of the console in that teaser we would all be like wtf so whats goin on?.. no representative explaining what the whole concept about the new console? only a 2 minute video of shots? .... i don't see why everyone is so bland about the video should be happy we even got a glimpse at it for once now its just the waiting game with sony hands on with it to make us more excited i rather sony if anything for this reason that i posted in the microsoft section .. (well then sony seems like your choice as all there tecs will be 100% on developing a gaming console unlike microsoft pointing out there tecs to maybe 40% .... a console that is for entertainment rather then gaming & just a box that can also play games is not appealing as there not focusing on gamers but stuff you can already get on your smartphone, laptop and mostly all tv's now days whats the point?.. bad choice and move for microsoft as they should be focusing much more on gaming & us gamers. Thats the whole reason of buying these consoles just ludacris what they are doing in my opinion )   ... && thats why im excited for a deticated gaming system regardless of a blured video im still a happy chap :) happy gaming

@soulless4now  The PS2 was, and still is my favorite platform. It may be dated, but it's sure as hell good.

@sgt_F79 I'm a PC gamer and I have a XBOX 360. I bought it in febuary to play Halo games with my brother who lives in another town (he does'nt play any other game), its the only reason I got one and Im actually looking for a second hand PS3 for all the great exclusives I never got to play cause nobody I know has a PS3 either.  Im not interested in PS4 or XBOX ONE atm because PC is better and probably cheaper at this point.

@WantYouBad Bet you it'll look better than the atrocious-looking One. Sony always has beautiful looking consoles. With beautiful games. 

punksterdaddy

@Good-Smurf Yeah, with a camera and voice recognition unit, to watch and listen to everything you say or do?

Apparently there may be an option to play games on it too? That could just be some speculation?

@abdoalwaer So game consoles have same hardware, but PCs don't? Really?

Besides, at least all 3 consoles differ in control options, when PC is the same. And if you just game on the PC you'll miss on the great exclusives that Sony and Nintendo has.

@punksterdaddy Well, now you know.  They talked about TV for about 30 minutes.  They talked a lot and said very little, other than "Wow, OMFGzers!  This new console is gonna be the best thing since sliced bread and ice cubes!  You can watch TV with it!  You can watch TV and talk to your friend on the phone AT THE SAME TIME!!!  WHILE YOU LOOK STUFF UP ON THE INTARWEBS!!!1! Oh, and we think it'll play games, too. Also, Halo TV."

@franzito It should be interesting to watch. More so the actual companies not fanboys. This will really kick it off now that Microsoft is showing. Sony had the upper hand for a few months. Now it really begins, and all out war from E3 onto November.

@johnofwar @soulless4now You sir are a fool, the best system was probably the SNES or even the NES, and #2 would be the N64. you're probably not old enough to remember those days though.

@johnofwar Agreed. It had the best library of its time and that library is still better than all three current consoles combined.

@WantYouBad @johnofwar @soulless4now Ahem, yes, I may have not been alive the time it was made, but we all have our opinions now right? You don't have to call me a fool because everyone has different experiences.

@punksterdaddy @WantYouBad @Good-Smurf It is a bit hard to discern sarcasm over the internet.

Sorry man, commenting on a gaming website is about as far into the nerdgasm as I'm willing to go, I told you.

Your Feedbockula is not for me.
