"The console is just a console": Sony explains lack of PS4 hardware during reveal

PS4 was revealed last night at a Sony event in New York City, but the console itself was nowhere to be seen. Shuhei Yoshida, president of worldwide studios at Sony Computer Entertainment has explained that the console itself is considered as less important than the DualShock 4, and therefore wasn't shown.

Speaking with Polygon, Yoshida said, "The console is just a box. The controller was very important to show because it has the share button, but the console is just a console."

When asked if the press would see the final PS4 rig at E3 2013, Yoshida replied, "We're still trying to decide that."

With the console releasing 'Holiday 2013' you would like to think that the rig will be shown in full at E3 at least.

What do you think?
