The Playstation 4 has finally been unveiled. The rhombus-shaped system is far smaller than the PlayStation 3 when it first launch, which was an incredibly bulky device. As expected, the console carries over the black coloring of its predecessor, though it also offers a nice industrial design. Sony says that it’s own Sony Worldwide Studios has 20 new titles headed to the PS4 this year, 12 of which are all new IPs including “The Order:1886,” “Drive Club,” and “Knack.” Of course, there were sequels to be shown during the show including “Killzone: Shadown Fall,” latest in the “Killzone” series, “InFamous: Second Son.”
