First Look: Finally getting our hands on the PlayStation 4

1:42 /

After months of leaving gamers hanging, Sony shows off the goods. Get up close and decide if it was worth the wait.

Hey everyone. Jeff Bakalar with E3 2013. We're here at Sony's booth. I can't exactly touch it but right behind this glass is the PlayStation 4 and we just found out about it at the company's E3 press conference. It is a lot smaller than we thought and it does seem to appear to be a little bit smaller than the Xbox 1. It's got an interesting sort of angled edge to it and we can't really see any of the ports here but we do know that it has a HDMI out. And we can see that they're just two USB ports by checking out the side of the console right here. The PlayStation 4 is a Blu-ray player and a DVD Player. All right. Here it is, the DualShock 4. It's the first time I'm getting my hands on what that middle center feels like. It's kinda one big button, you can push it from really anywhere on the entire surface of it. It does feel a little wider than the DualShock 3 but I really have to get them side-by-side. Not a gigantic difference on the actual button -- face buttons here but I'm super excited to find out that the analog sticks have a much more reliable grip to that. The D-pad is pretty similar to the original DualShock 3. Let's check out the triggers here. You can see the colors where the LED back here, that's gonna work with the PlayStation camera. The touchpad is flanked by a Share and options button, and then it looks like we're got a speaker right below that as well, and then below that is the PlayStation button. So this is been a First Look at the PlayStation 4. It'll be $400 when it releases later on this year. I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com. Thanks for watching.
