  • Can you please, please do something about the speeds of your live event streaming. This is just terrible, stuttering every other second.

  • Those 4K TV’s are over $2000..sheesh

  • All this talk about 4K, and yet PS4 doesn’t support 4K gaming. Doh!

  • I honestly don’t want to know too much more about Second Son other than karma, because I want it to be a surprise.

  • @Lara-Croft What did you expect It’s the new thing just like how expensive HD was when it first released.

  • this is the consumer ELECTRONICS expo you won’t get any game news

  • Dying of boredom right now

  • lol I thought he meant games by play there

  • OMG guys, they just announced The Last of Us for Vita, and The Last Guardian for PS4!

    Just kidding. They’re talking about amplifiers and a new Walkman now. :)

  • why would they put this on the PLAYSTATION blog and not give game news

  • I feel like my grampa is giving this presentation.

  • Definitely want one of those dog harness things with the GoPro-like camera.

  • Whats going on with the video?! 1 second of watching 1 minute of loading. And now its worse, been sitting buffering for the last 25 minutes! Oh well I’m done, hopefully there will be a replay option or someones recorded and put it up on youtube. I don’t have all day to watch a sexy blue circle rotating.

    Yup, this is one of the many reasons I’m still not buying into 4K yet. We can’t stream, a what, 720P video? How the blazes are we going to manage 4K?! I seriously cannot understand why it’s so hard to get a stream working for these events, i mean this happens every single time! E3, TGS, Gamescom, CES, every single time any company does a stream of their conference, it turns into a slide show. We can send people to space, we can create flexible bendable displays, we can create a mobile phones which supposedly has the processing power of a ps4, we can create head mounted displays, we can create VR or AR devices, we can create cars which drive themselves, but we cannot create a stream that just WORKS! Go figure. Sony, PLEASE, come E3 time, can we please have a replay option? That way people don’t have to put up with this extreme frustration!

  • sony haven’t said any games news at any ces

  • @110, you do realize this is Ustream and not sony streaming the video, right?

    Other than that, I will agree that with the way internet speeds are in the U.S. we’ll never be streaming 4k anytime soon.

  • If you’re having trouble with the stream, do a Google search for ‘Sony CES 2013 stream’ and find a different website to watch it on. I’m watching via the uk PLAY magazine website, and the stream is silky smooth.

  • This mobile guy makes me wanna say Brack Friday Bunduru, Im not sure why.

  • Ah, Lifelog, making the NSA’s job of syping on you easier! Thanks Sony! :)

  • The feed on livestream seems way more stable. Just click ‘watch live events’ and then choose the cnet stream.

  • so was this streaming in 1k because its buffering alot

  • I love Sony but they can’t sort their live streaming out geez.

  • So we have something that has nothing to do with Playstation or Gaikai on the blog? why?

  • What? No Playstation anything???

  • WAste of my life

  • I’m streaming from my PS4 in Chino Hills, Ca and it is streaming just fine!!! I was hoping a Windows Phone from Sony, or at least a Playstation App for Windows Phone. Damn, they didn’t even announce any PS4 news. What a waste of time!!!

  • Well, that was boring. Don’t understand why it was on the playstation blog.

  • wait thats it? uhg waste of time…

  • Press Conference starts: “This year, Sony is all about play!”
    62 minutes later, after no mention of Playstation brand, “Thank you, good night!”


  • Lol, they showed a pic of the PS4 but didn’t even release any upcoming info for PS4 except the smart watch crap!

  • No PS4 news at all?

  • Why is sony not announcing sales numbers for ps4 like Ms has? No communication about when new needed features are coming to ps4 it’s now january, not impressed with sony right now.

  • maybe sony will file bankruptcy. They are ignoring their biggest and most popular division… PlayStation

  • So there was a link on the playstation blog to a sony event that had absolutely no playstation news….can I at least get some psn bucks to help me forget that i lost an hour that i will never get back

  • Anybody know the name of the dubstep song at the end. It was the first one played at the end.

  • #SonyCES why waste our time and no info on PS4!?

  • To be fair, this isn’t E3. Sony have a whole press conference every June dedicated to games, and they have to cram everything else into the CES show, but I’m surprised that they didn’t talk a bit about PS4, especially given that this is an audience that might not be as familiar with the new console as we (meaning those who come to this blog) are.
    I expected a mention of sales number, at the very least, especially given that Microsoft announced theirs today (and they don’t even have a big presence at CES). Perhaps Kaz will say a few words tomorrow, given that he rose through the ranks via Playstation, and it’s clearly dear to his heart.
    Still, I do like the look of that 4K Handycam…

  • I sometimes wonder who runs Sony, Sony of Nippon or sony US. Talking about a Display output that will not be standard hardware for 8-10+ years. 4K tsk PS4 cannot even playback 4K video right now if I recall correctly. Why was this on PS Blog PS mentioned once as a reference.

  • Right.. that was a waste of time. I thought that by pimping it on the PS Blog they’d at least have December’s sales number for the PS4 or news on new system updates or something.

  • Wow, congrats to Sony and PlayStation for trolling us Blog Gamers, expecting some sort of PlayStation news by posting this here. I’m glad I didn’t watch and just wait for a recap, but I feel bad for those who did watch expecting some PS4/3/Vita news.

  • Sony wasting time, resources, money on niche, expensive products…..I wonder why they are bleeding money lol.

  • @michaelochs

    Carried Away- Passion Pit.

    Not sure if that’s what you’re talking about.

  • can 4k work on my 6mb per sec aol high speed internet

  • omg they just mentioned DLNA! I wonder if that will ever be added to the PlayStation 4.

  • @136

    Agreed, Wasted my time watching this.

  • soooooo no ps4 news???

  • I do gotta say tho even tho launch games were lacking, ps4 still is out selling xbone easily!!!!!!!!

  • Ah, so Kaz is going to speak tomorrow. Maybe they’ll be some PlayStation news then folks. Don’t initiate full pancake mode yet.

  • @144 The_Codefinder

    WHY? full pancake mode sounds delicious. Can we make it full waffle mode though? I love waffles more.

  • 4K is still a distant future for many of us. I am happy with 1080 display, plus PS4 doesn’t support 4K and even if could support, the price of a 4K display plus memory for the files are factors which push us away from 4K. How about a bigger playstation 3d tv display with affordable price like the 24 inches playstation TV was?

  • well i guess i will have to wait till june for E3 Press Conference for the new vita tv or ps vita slim or Gaikai
