Sony Corp has taken the wraps off its next-generation video
game console - called "PlayStation4" - that will allow users
to stream and play video games hosted on servers.
The company revealed the new console, which will succeed the
seven-year-old PlayStation 3, in New York.
The controller dubbed "DualShock 4" will have a touch pad,
Mark Cerny, lead system architect on PlayStation 4, said.
Sony purchased US cloud-based gaming company Gaikai for $380
million in July. Using that technology, the new console will
offer a cloud-gaming service, the company said.
