Sony fails to show PlayStation 4 console at PlayStation 4 event

via The Verge.

The other thing they forgot to show, anything that would make me excited, or indeed interested, in the PS4.  There’s nothing compelling about the package, and whilst individual aspects are nice, like low-power state for updates and system level functionality like sharing and saving, there’s nothing that warrants spending several hundred pounds on a new console.

The PS4 is a slightly higher quality VHS player in a world that’s moved on to Netflix, iPads and Smart TVs.
