Sony have asserted that the PlayStation 4 will be ‘first and foremost’ a videogame console. The announcement came during a press interview during the D11 conference. Kaz Hirai stated “The most important thing we need to do is agree and understand that the PS4 is a great videogame console that appeals to video gamers,” in an apparent attempt to distinguish the PS4 from the recently announce Xbox One, which is understood to have a greater focus on non-game functionality, such as TV and social media.

However, the PS3 was also very focused on non-game content, offering film and music downloads to the onboard hard drive, so it remains to be seen whether the reality of the new system lives up to the hype.
