Sony PlayStation 4 News, Specs: No Box Shown, All Hat, No Cowboy

|

Sony Playstation 4 news ... execs revealed specs on February 20 ... but when will the PS4 come out? What will it cost? Will it beat Call of Duty to market? Smells like vapor, sweetened with a lot of beautiful canned demos, but soured with no real details on the box, excepting a new controller with a trackpad our Ant Pruitt says doesn't add much. Sony and partners did hint the PS4 would come in at a sub $500 price ... someday. Sony Playstation 4 news both intrigued and disappointed our Ant Pruitt. Gamer? A must read.

He is ashamed to be a nerd and resents the unashamed who claim they are nerds. It's an oxymoron. Do you agree?
