The PlayStation 4 is coming.

In fact, at the end of Sony's PlayStation meeting yesterday, they announced that the console will be available for purchase this Holiday season, meaning there will be some ecstatic fans hoping the unwrap the console from their Christmas tree. While the console itself was not shown, Sony had live demos of upcoming games being played with the new Dualshock 4, which will feature a touchscreen, and a share button that allows players to stream their gameplay to friends, as well as record clips and images of games. The system will be able to enter a sleep mode that reduces power and charges controllers at the same time. Updates and downloads can also be done in the background, and games purchased from the store can be played after a small portion of the game is downloaded.
