    Why Sony didn't show us the PS4?

    Iam no expert nor have experience in this business. But why Sony didn't show us the design of PS4? I was hoping that more provided details on the hardware such as the gpu, cpu, cooling system fans, network, can we link our current PS3 accounts on the PS4 or purchased games can be redownloaded on the ps4, and etc. Nothing like that was mentioned in this event. What do you guys thing? Sony didn't want to tell us because so Microsoft won't know anything?

    I hope it supports disc games because my meager connection can't download huge games all the time.

    Me too man plus that stream thing is going to have some problems for sure. To be able to stream any content good. The person he/she most have a connection and not most us do. Plus the internet connection sometimes it drops. I think its a cool feature but not good much.

    I think they're waiting until E3 to unveil it. It's part of the hype.

    They probably thought it wasn't time to reveal it, yet. Sony wants their fans to keep wanting more. They'll show it at E3. Hopefully I'll have my pass by then, if things go smoothy. I just hope they don't delay the released like they did with the PS3. Though it would've be nice to release it on a warmer season. Lol
    Oh, I'm sorry did I break your concentration I didn't mean to do that. Please, continue. - Jules

    A lot of people have no idea what any of that means. Not everyone is too experienced in computers to know what's good vs. bad.

    Whilst I would have liked them to show us the hardware box itself it's understandable not to blow all of your loads 8-9 months before release. Now people will be looking forward to the shell, rather than knowing almost everything about PS4

    I'm confident it's gonna be a sexy beast though. Sony's 2013 hardware designs have been lovely so far

    They didn't show us because they want to keep the excitement going. It is literally that simple.

    Exactly, Sony needs to keep people wanting more. If they revealed everything now, then the hype would slowly die down as there wouldn't be anything to speculate and wonder about. Slowly revealing everything over the next six months will allow them to maximize media converge and publicity, hopefully paving the way for a hype crazed launch.

    Beyond that, the physical design might just not even actually be ready yet.

    But by showing the design they could of had feedback on it... Much like they did with the boomerang controller and went back to the more familiar Dualshock form factor.

    The finalized PS4 design is probably not finished. They even stated this was the PS4 prototype.

    Serious? What would they have to reveal at E3? They need to come some of the major things up their sleeves.

    They saved just enough where E3 can be just about as exciting as the console reveal itself. By doing this it steals some of the thunder of the next Xbox reveal(it is is revealed at E3) even after revealing their console first.

    You are right. Now, this garbage Microsoft is dying and they will die when PS4 will be out. Sony for sure will wipe them out.

    There's only two possible reasons.

    1. The design isn't even close to ready.
    2. They're not confident in the design they have.
    Other opinions are available.

    I'm very curious now what Microsoft has to offer... although at this point I really don't care.

    You guys over think it. It's as simple as the design isn't finalized yet.

    I'm just thinking the ps4 will be so good people will be looking at their screen all the time and not the console, and hence not care what it looks like.

    It'll look like the first dev kit (I.E. a jumbled frankenstein PC mess) not worth showing yet. They have to pull us in and get us excited before they either streamline it or drop a bom on us
