Today in New York City at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT Sony will likely announce the new PlayStation 4 and show off the future of the PlayStation.
The PlayStation 4 is the first system in a new generation of consoles that include a new Xbox from Microsoft. Rumors for the PS4 say it will use a new AMD CPU and graphics card for enhanced visuals. The new hardware could break backwards compatibility with the PS3, but there’s a chance Sony will use Gaikai to stream PS3 games to the new console.
