VIDEO GAMES: Watch Sony's PLAYSTATION 4 Announcement In Full

Sony today officially announced that the PlayStation 4 will be released this Christmas. After the jump, you'll find their presentation in full, including gameplay footage from the likes of Destiny, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Infamous: Second Son and more!

The console itself still hasn't been revealed, but we do know that the PlayStation 4 will be available to buy sometime this Holiday season. The powerful new console will have a controller that has several new features, including a touchpad, motion sensors, and a "share" button which will allow gamers to record gameplay in order to upload it online. It will also be possible to stream games to the PlayStation Vita, although the system will NOT be backwards compatible with PS3 releases. Cloud based technology will also play a big role in the PlayStation 4. As well as their own games, Bungie revealed Destiny, Blizzard unleashed Diablo III and Ubisoft impressed with Watch Dogs. The full replay of the two hour presentation is below, but some highlights of the gameplay footage can be found on the official PlayStation YouTube channel by clicking HERE.

Mrcool210 - 2/20/2013, 6:27 PM

SageMode - 2/20/2013, 6:27 PM
Its too early for the PS4.
Nick56 - 2/20/2013, 6:28 PM
PS4 unveiling without unveiling the PS4. lol
RPD - 2/20/2013, 6:30 PM
Sticking with Microsoft...
BobGarlen - 2/20/2013, 6:31 PM
I'd buy that for a dollar.
soberchimera - 2/20/2013, 6:32 PM
Awesome bring on MGS5.
TonyChu - 2/20/2013, 6:34 PM
Not in a rush at all. I'll just wait for 2-3 months after the release and get it on QVC with about 4-5 easy payments. That's how I got my PS3.
TonyChu - 2/20/2013, 6:35 PM
@WesleyGibson Daaaaaaaamnnnnn. I kind of feel the same way I got mine a year ago.
Durf - 2/20/2013, 6:36 PM
Yeah I'm not getting this for quite a while
jessepostal - 2/20/2013, 6:36 PM
Didn't they say it IS backwards compatible through streaming for all Playstation consoles?
JoeMomma29 - 2/20/2013, 6:37 PM

TonyChu - 2/20/2013, 6:42 PM
@jesseportal I think through cloud based gaming they will be.
PsyGuy - 2/20/2013, 6:42 PM
I'm actually really excited for this!
The graphics on some of the demos looks AMAZING
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 2/20/2013, 6:44 PM
Xbox FTW
monstalova - 2/20/2013, 6:45 PM
It better be backwars compatible for PS3! Otherwise they would lose so many sales
Pokeysteve - 2/20/2013, 6:45 PM
Not backwards compatible, not interested.
peppy - 2/20/2013, 6:46 PM
I'm total getting this
JoeMomma29 - 2/20/2013, 6:46 PM
Gusto what was that I could not understand you without your dentures!

Ocelot - 2/20/2013, 6:47 PM
wasn't the ps3 meant to last for 10 years
Blanka1212 - 2/20/2013, 6:48 PM
They said that it IS backwards compatible. Pay better attention before spreading false information.

JoeMomma29 - 2/20/2013, 6:49 PM
Gusto is hitting the sauce again!

SigmaCenturion - 2/20/2013, 6:51 PM
To DriveClub Developers I don't care how it looks does it control worth a shit. Thought the guy was going to splooge himself talking about the game.
JoeMomma29 - 2/20/2013, 6:52 PM
You know how every kid in the USA under the age 14 feels about this news!

polarkyle - 2/20/2013, 6:54 PM
i knew waiting for the PS3 would pay off eventually and i can show it off to all those who still have a PS3
jessepostal - 2/20/2013, 6:56 PM
Playstation never met your expectations?? But xbox did?? ummmm ok. What are your expectations??
Ocelot - 2/20/2013, 7:00 PM
There is no backwards compatibility through old discs however there is backwards compatibility through playstation cloud where you can stream games and allows you to play ps1,2 and 3 titles
SigmaCenturion - 2/20/2013, 7:05 PM
The Witness looks like Myst to me.
TheFascinatingMan - 2/20/2013, 7:06 PM
hell yes!
KeefNCookies - 2/20/2013, 7:08 PM
I can wait a few years. 3 mini, 5 max
SymbioteJoker - 2/20/2013, 7:13 PM
You know what would get my sale? If the network could register what ps3 games were in my library and let me download it free to the ps4. But that ain't happening. I'll stick with my ps3 for awhile thank you
WYLEEJAY - 2/20/2013, 7:15 PM
The playstation 3 started off backwards compatible. They took it out cause people kept buying the playstation 2 versions and not the playstation 3 games cause of the cost. I dont think that will be a problem here cause they probably wont release two versions of the same game. My playstation only gets used as a blue ray player now, I do all my gaming on my x box. But if my ps3 takes a poop, and I get the new system, will I be able to put my games in the system and play them, or do I have to purchase them again to download? That is the question.
marvel72 - 2/20/2013, 7:17 PM
some interesting looking games there,over the years i've owned many consoles sega megadrive,sega saturn,sega dreamcast,super nintendo,nintendo 64,nintendo gamecube,xbox,xbox 360,sony playstation 1,2 & 3.

so i will probably own a playstaion 4 & whatever mircosoft release xbox wise,so i can get the best games from both platforms.

none of this playstation is better than xbox bullshit or vice versa.
jessepostal - 2/20/2013, 7:21 PM
@weejay,they took it out because it made the hardware more expensive, and with the games mentioned they are being released for both ps3 and ps4
ATrueHero1987 - 2/20/2013, 7:21 PM
So they announced the PS4 without even SHOWING the console?!lol

It has some great features but as much I'm interested in this, i'm sticking with Microsoft. Who knows, I might own both.

Plus, I might wait a couple of months after it's released anyway to buy it.
jessepostal - 2/20/2013, 7:26 PM
@suspense, my laptop does that already, i want a gaming system not a portastudio :)
Gman20 - 2/20/2013, 7:30 PM
So will we have to pay to stream games we paid for already on the ps3 ? That is a dick move if so. Saying that , streaming is the next big thing . Paying a low enough price for monthly subscriptions and when you're bored of it or finished the game you just cancel the subscription . Pretty much eliminating the used game market in shops . It makes sense really. Will miss having physical copys though . But times be a changing. And with that insane google glass product it's safe to say we are now living in the future . Praise science !

I'm with everyone with the waiting thing but once I see the ads I'll give my girlfriend the guilt trip into buying it .

By girlfriend I mean mom.
TheSuperguy - 2/20/2013, 7:31 PM
Wondering when the new XBOX console will be out?
ATrueHero1987 - 2/20/2013, 7:32 PM
When I heard that they were going to announce the PS4, i thought about this article & laughed.
