It was announced as part of a "strategic partnership" between Sony and Blizzard, although it's currently unclear if rival platforms will be supported.

Officially announced at the start of the event, the PS4 is compared to a "supercharged PC". It features an x86 CPU, enhanced PC GPU and 8GB RAM.

The Dualshock 4 controller, which was leaked before the event, appears similar in design to the standard PS3 controller, except for a touch pad, share button, and light bar that acts like a PlayStation Move.
