Well, that was weird. We got a console reveal without Sony actually revealing the console. It's left a lot of people confused, maybe even concerned, so given the chance we had to ask: where was the PS4?

"Why do you care?", jokes Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony's Worldwide Studios.

Pressed as to what we should be reading into when we get a console reveal without the reveal of the console, Yoshida tells Kotaku "It was almost the other way around. When we planned for this event, obviously we discussed what we should show and talk about."

"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."

It would have been nice to see the console itself, and I am sure images will leak before long. But seriously, we all have a rough idea of what consoles look like: a black box with power/eject buttons and a slot/tray for discs.

This generation is going to be quite socially engineered. Look at the amount of wagglan mess that the PS4 has to offer, including a tie-in WITH FACEBOOK just so you can actually sign-in to the damn console. If this doesn't start ringing bells well get ready for more.

The conference was a joke, it showed five actual games, two are multi-plat (watch dogs and D3), two are rehashes (infamous and killzone) and one is a random game called knack. There was a move game that has you wagglan around building pieces of dung to make a human, and a totally not real demo of people pulling strings on puppets.

They revealed fairly heavy online functions, including streaming capabilities and playing the game while downloading. These two offerings are going to be very tech heavy, hell just streaming WoW and trying to play is laggy enough, better yet a game like BF4. They also require extremely fast internet to actually get anywhere, which half the world does not have.

Various real time scenes were shown, including a year old tech demo from Unreal and Square. Honestly, we need to see games. Confirming that there is no backwards compatibility is a kick in the guts, and means those games you just bought are now useless unless you feel like constantly switching consoles. They also give the vita another kick by saying its useless and can now only "stream" ps4 games.

Honestly, this PS4 has interesting tech and ideas, but was just executed so poorly you can tell its a rush job. Expect $5xx price tag and a release at the end of the year with no games.

He could just come out and say it's running on PS4 hardware and we haven't finalized the design and don't want to show it off until it's done....

I like how Sony is keeping up their "@&#! You" Mentality. This reminds me of the "people will get a second job to buy it" talk about the PS3. Why do we care? I dunno, you're only announcing the next big generation of your platform. Maybe we'd like to see it?

Just keep the whole reveal until later and show us the whole system instead of this piece by piece deal.

Ignoring the obvious troll, looks like PS4 will support 4k resolution. Just look at this image from Killzone Shadow Fall

actually the PS4 is very nice,with some nice nifty features, but I know the new xbox is going to destroy this thing. I mean,if there wasn't xbox I would definitely pick up a PS4. I bought a PS3 first before I bought an Xbox360,but I ended up liking the Xbox360 better,from the controller,to xbox live. I still use both today,but mostly the xbox.

and whats really weird is that sony said they would let Microsoft announce their console first,then out of no where they decide they want to show off the PS4. then they don't even show the console,meaning they weren't ready to announce this thing,but they were pressured to for some odd reason.

Why didn't we actually see it? may be they haven't finalized the industrial design and probably some specs yet (notice how RAM got doubled from the rumors).

How do you know nextBox will be "better" though? We don't know anything yet (although compared to PS4 stuff shown today, MS rumors are better).

I'm sure 99% of your post is FUD and hate for Sony, but if the above is not part of that 99% then I'll be seriously disappointed. I hate FaceBook and refuse to use it despite all the odd looks I get from people for not being on there and a console will not be the reason I sign up.

So here's the hoping you misquoted or took something out of context when you wrote that.
