Sony teases PlayStation 4 hardware reveal with YouTube video
Sony has teased its upcoming game console, via a video uploaded to YouTube. The clip, which alternates between close-up shots and one zooming into what could be presumed to be the impending <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/285968==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/20/eight.core.amd.x86.processor.with.radeon.graphics. drive.the.console/" rel='nofollow'>PlayStation 4</a>, is released the day before Microsoft is due to reveal its future plans for its own replacement for the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/285969==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/24/next.microsoft.game.console.expected.to.be.reveale d/" rel='nofollow'>Xbox 360</a>. <br />
<br />
The zoom-in shot of the video appears to show a black square, something that visually matches the outline of a PlayStation 3 if stood on end. The quick close-up images reveal little else about the hardware, except that it is predominantly black or dark gray in color, has air vents, a hard-edged design aesthetic, and the number four recessed into one side. <br />
<br />
A <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/285970==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/20/console.based.on.x86.architecture/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">previous event</a> saw Sony describe the console as using an Internet connection to stream games before they are downloaded to the system, an eight-core x86-64 CPU, 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, Radeon graphics, a 6x Blu-ray drive, USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, and a mandatory PlayStation 4 Eye camera. While the physical console itself was not shown, the Dualshock 4 controller was, complete with a two-point capacitive touchpad, three-axis gyroscope, speaker, and dedicated sharing button. <br />
<br />
Sony is expected to provide more details at its E3 keynote on June 10th.<br />
