Sony (SNE) finally shows off the PlayStation 4's hardware - the form factor resembles the PS3's, but might be larger. Gizmodo: "...it looks like an evil Wii, or a more genteel 2001: A Space Odyssey monolith." Sony has also used its E3 conference event to: 1) Show off a slew of PS4 games, including action title The Order: 1886, several indie titles, and two games for the Final Fantasy franchise (I, II). 2) Officially join the Web programming craze, promising the PS4 launch will be accompanied by original, Sony-created content for the PlayStation Network. Microsoft is hatching similar plans. 3) Promise that, unlike the Xbox One, he PS4 has no used game restrictions or online verification requirements. (previous) (live blog)
