More than an hour and a half into the presentation, Sony has yet to show the PlayStation 4 machine. There’s no word yet on price or release date, though availability isn’t likely for several months.
It’s 9:30 a.m. Thursday in Tokyo, and the event is being streamed live at Sony’s website.
Yoshinori Ono from Japanese game maker Capcom addresses the audience in Japanese, with a translator offering the remarks in English.
Beyond games, Sony is touting the PlayStation 4’s fast graphical capabilities. You’d be able to create animation in 3-D using a Move motion controller _ all in real time.
Another game showcased was “The Witness.” It’s a puzzle game that explores an abandoned island. It will be developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
Among the offerings planned: “Drive Club.” An executive from Evolution Studios says it’s been a concept for a decade, but made possible with the new machine. The game will be about driving the best cars in the world in the best locations in the world, using 3-D models of engines built by the development team.
