Sony's announcement 'much earlier' than expected

Sony have unveiled plans for their new PlayStation 4 at a conference in New York.

Showcasing new games, ways to share and stream gaming, and features of the console's controller, the only thing fans did not see was the console itself.

Speaking to Daybreak, gaming expert Paddy Smith from Stuff magazine said it was disappointing fans did not get to see the new PS4 console, but not surprising.

He said yesterday's announcement from Sony came earlier than expected, and the product might not be finished.
