New console to see 30 titles in the first year

At an E3 announcement earlier today, Sony showed off its new PlayStation 4 console, this time demoing the actual production unit. In much the same manner as competitor Microsoft, the company also demoed and listed upcoming titles for the console. Beyond just the new console, the company also debuted a $299 bundle with a Playstation 3 and the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V title.

Most of the new console was detailed in a press event in February, but Sony did not show the actual machine at the time. The PS4 runs custom AMD chips with eight Jaguar cores with embedded Radeon graphics processing. A built-in hard drive gives the unit storage, and has 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, and a 6x Blu-ray optical drive.

Digital rights management is a bit different than the new Microsoft offering, meaning disc-based games will not need to "call home" with a mandatory connection. Digitally-distributed titles, however, require a persistent connection. PlayStation 4 consoles will be available for $399 and up.
