Sony's PS4 Teaser Trailer is a Whole Lot of Nothing, But We'll Watch Anyway

We knew that Sony had a PlayStation 4 brewing, and we knew a little something about the upcoming gaming console’s specifications, but now we know when we’ll know all the juicy details. In a teaser trailer for the PS4, Sony indicated that the big reveal will take place on June 10th at 6pm PDT at E3.

The trailer itself leaves something to be desired, to say the least. It’s a short spot, and we see a blurry black box in the background that we never get to see in focus, and there are spliced-in bits showing closeups of the PlayStation 4 that don’t really tell us anything. (It will have some Christopher Nolan-era Batmobile-type angles, and at least part of it will have a sort of blocky grill design. That much we can ascertain, but that’s about it.)

Whatever is on the outside, the inside of the PS4 will be built around a two four-core AMD Jaguar blocks, a Next-based graphics core with 8GB of GDDR5 memory, Blu ray drive, and hard drive, and it will support “Direct X 11.1+”. The system will not be backward compatible with earlier PlayStation titles, but there will be a redesigned DualShock 4 controller replete with a middle touchpad, headphone jack, 3D camera tracking, and more.
