I was at the launch of Sony PlayStation®4 at 1Utama New Wing Main Entrance last week. This new console is a successor to PlayStation 3 which was launched back in 2006.
The highly-anticipated next generation gaming console PlayStation®4 (PS4™) is being launched in Malaysia. Over 2.1 million consoles* have already been sold in Europe and America within a month after release. Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SCES) held a “PS4™ launch Event” in 1 Utama to celebrate.
Pre-ordered customers from selected SONY Stores came to pick up the PS4. Hiroyuki Oda, Deputy President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia, make a special trip from Japan to participate and hold a celebrating ceremony with Malaysia’s first PS4™ owner and other participants.
Hiroyuki Oda, Deputy President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia and Sony Malaysia VIP will present the PS4 set, and 10-year PlayStation® Plus Memberships to the first, second and third buyer.

During the launch event, Hiroyuki Oda, Deputy President of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia will provide an update on the worldwide success of the PlayStation®4 and share exciting news for early pre-order buyers collecting their console on that day. Customers who have pre-ordered their PS4™ sets will be able to collect their sets starting 4.30pm at the respective shops they ordered the PS4™ from.
Just look at the queue! These folks must had been waiting for a really long time after the announcement of PS4 in November. Anyway, the good news is they did manage to get them before Christmas.

What I can say about PS4 is that the graphic is superbly nice and sharp! I can really feel the difference of visual graphic between PS4 and PS3, not a lot but it's noticeable.
Some dudes trying to figure out how to play Grand Turismo 6.
Spotted Denise Chan from Hitz.fm recording herself playing with the PS4 virtual robots.
The PS4 controller feels solid and sturdy. It's comfortable to hold, slightly bigger than the previous controller but all the basic stuff is at the same position (except for the start and select with the additional of touch pad at the center top.

I really like the display and the improved buttons on the PS Vita. The only problem I have is the plasticky feel of it and it's light, a lot lighter than PSP.
