As we stood among the throngs of journalists on a sub-freezing 34th Street awaiting our admission into Sony’s event on Thursday, I said to Susan Arendt, ‘I don’t think I need a new PlayStation that features an incremental upgrade in graphics.’
But as I came out of the cold and into the heat of the Hammerstein Ballroom, I saw Sony’s giant stage and a wrap-around screen high above. After the festivities began and the game videos were shown, I warmed up to the idea of a new PlayStation which will be released around the holidays.
We gathered up some members of the Circle after the event – along with Ben Silverman from Yahoo Games who was in from the West Coast for the show. Jill Scharr did the interviews and Victor Kalogiannis shot the video. (Reveal: We all wished they had shown the new box itself – and footage from the long-delayed The Last Guardian.) We’ll have the program up soon. So, stay tuned.
Until then, here’s a stream of the whole show from Sony which features many upcoming games and some functionality of the PS4.
