Just recently, Sony made nothing more than a decent announcement regarding the highly rumored PlayStation 4. The event itself reminded me of a dull, yet somewhat surprise-filled alternate to E3.
Although the console was not displayed to the public, Sony gave a brief description about its hardware and its capabilities. The PS4 has upgraded versions of previous hardware featured in the PS3.
The DualShock 4 controller was shown off, with a couple of new features and looks. For starters, the most obvious difference is the touch pad lying right above the dual analog sticks, as well as “Options” and “Share” buttons on the top of the controller. The handles of the controller now resemble the feel of the PlayStation Move Motion controller.
It also sports a colored light indicator to designate the difference between player 1 and player 2.
Unfortunately, this new console will not be PS3 compatible, which means consumers will most likely have to purchase and download their games all over again. On another positive note, games will be able to be played as soon as they begin downloading, not just after they have finished, thanks to a secondary custom chip for background processing.
After the PS4 was discussed, the stage was given to game companies such as Bungie, Blizzzard, and Ubisoft, which all showed great looking games to soon be playable on the PS3 and PS4. These titles included Destiny, Watch Dogs, and Drive Club.
The conference went on without a price point or official release date, however it will be released this upcoming holiday season.

Apple has just announced it has sold over 3 million iPads in its first 3 days. The iPhone 4S sold 4 million in its first 3 days. This is a very amazing number considering the iPad is much more expensive if you don’t count off-contract iPhones.
