Hello all, Roger Cheng, executive editor for CNET News, here to bring you all the Sony goodness at CES 2014.
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:31:09 AM
Everyone enjoying the CES coverage so far?
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:31:48 AM
It's already been a wild day, with bendable televisions, appliances that you can talk to (through your smartphone), and, of course, the Michael Bay meltdown.
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:32:02 AM
Let's see if Sony can top things.
Lethality1/7/2014 12:32:19 AM
Yep, you guys are doing it best so far :)
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:33:04 AM
Sony is certainly one of the hotter tickets at the show. There was a mass of people waiting to get in, and a stampede to the seats once they let the media in.
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:33:34 AM
Fortunately, CNET elbowed its way to the front of conference area to give you the best view of the event.
Kai1/7/2014 12:33:49 AM
Hope there is something big about gaikai
allman1/7/2014 12:34:02 AM
what kind of stuff is expected by sony?
sarahtew1/7/2014 12:34:24 AM
CNET Editors Claudia Cruz, Roger Cheng, and Ty Pendlebury getting settled in the 5th row with me...

@allman: I can imagine an assortment of televisions, phones, and computers -- the usual. Hopefully, there will be a surprise!
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:35:20 AM
So the press is gathered in Sony's massive booth at the far end of Central Hall in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
izme1/7/2014 12:35:26 AM
I really enjoy your coverage so far. I have had the live stream running all day on my computer. Thanks so much, i would really like to see the sony press confrence before i fall asleep in front of my computer. It is 1:30 am in Norway. :S
Kai1/7/2014 12:35:58 AM
4K camera too I supposed
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:36:04 AM
Above is a huge digital banner that wraps around the booth like an oval, suspended about 10 feet off the ground.

Up front is the Play Sony logo, while colorful waves move around the rest of the digital banner.
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:37:00 AM
Sharp eyed live blog followers can see former CNETer Josh Lowensohn, now at the Verge, making his way through the Sony crowd.

hopefully we see some innovation with their new 4k tvs... because as of right now Samsung has had the best suprise

Pictured is SungChang Bong, editor in chief of CNET Korea (right), and TV editor Ty Pendlebury.
Gregory Opera1/7/2014 12:38:43 AM
Hopefully we'll see a Google TV that actually has Google TV built-in (as opposed to a seperate box) this year... Or better yet, a Ubuntu TV from Sony.
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:39:42 AM
So what do I want to see? PS5!
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:39:49 AM
allman1/7/2014 12:40:50 AM
come on they havent even come out with ps4 slim yet
ty.pendlebury1/7/2014 12:40:53 AM
Wouldn't hold my breath on the Google TV thing. Google is reportedly rebranding as Android TV--things are in flux news.cnet.com
Graeme1/7/2014 12:40:55 AM
It would be great to see 4k TVs more afforable to the masses!
Kai1/7/2014 12:40:57 AM
Roger1/7/2014 12:41:03 AM
OLED or...you know the rest
MR SONY FREAK1/7/2014 12:41:14 AM
Sony to the top.
ty.pendlebury1/7/2014 12:41:51 AM
Dear Graeme, 4K will be good when we get decent upscaling from 1080p.
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:42:11 AM
So Sony find itself in the position of chasing after Samsung, and in mobile phones, several other companies.
f*ck xbone1/7/2014 12:42:22 AM
ps4 games please
new xperia1/7/2014 12:42:26 AM
i m looking for new xperias
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:42:34 AM
The company is often criticized as being too siloed, with different units acting without the knowledge of others.
kmasri1/7/2014 12:42:45 AM
anyone else hoping to see the xperia z1f/mini released to the world?
Roger Cheng1/7/2014 12:42:48 AM
We'll see if that changes with CEO Kaz Hirai. I want to see some good stuff come out of Sony again.
Gregory Opera1/7/2014 12:42:49 AM
Yeah, I'm not expecting too much from Google TV... Everyone involved seems to have gone pretty quiet on the whole thing.
Kai1/7/2014 12:42:58 AM
I thought Samsung is at the top, they have Smart Home
allman1/7/2014 12:43:02 AM
still on top in the gaming console section though
ty.pendlebury1/7/2014 12:43:08 AM
Hard to tell whether the playing music is Mumford and Sons/that guy from American Idol/ Of Monster and Men. GET OFF MY LAWN.
new xperia1/7/2014 12:43:09 AM
if sony not announce new flagship i will buy XZ1 asap ;)
