Sony has officially announced the PlayStation 4. While no price or exact release date was announced, we do know it will come out later this year. Sony didn’t show what the console will look like, but instead, showed off the system’s new controller. It looks sort of like the PlayStation 3 controller with a touchscreen in the middle of it. The controller also has a share button, which is one of the PlayStation 4’s most hyped features. You can upload game clips and even broadcast live to your friends around the world, who can watch or take remote control of your game to get you through a tough spot. Sony also announced new entries in the Infamous and Killzone franchises and said that Diablo III and Bungie’s new game Destiny will come to the system. Sony said it wants to win the war against reality by offering the best gaming experience in the world. While it’s still very early, it looks like the PlayStation 4 is off to a good start.
