CES 2014: Sony press conference (live blog)

Sony's CES 2014 press conference.

  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 12:30:56 AM
    Hello all, Roger Cheng, executive editor for CNET News, here to bring you all the Sony goodness at CES 2014.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 12:31:09 AM
    Everyone enjoying the CES coverage so far?
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 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 Cheng 1/7/2014 12:32:02 AM
    Let's see if Sony can top things.
  • Lethality 1/7/2014 12:32:19 AM
    Yep, you guys are doing it best so far :)
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 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 Cheng 1/7/2014 12:33:34 AM
    Fortunately, CNET elbowed its way to the front of conference area to give you the best view of the event.
  • Kai 1/7/2014 12:33:49 AM
    Hope there is something big about gaikai
  • allman 1/7/2014 12:34:02 AM
    what kind of stuff is expected by sony?
  • sarahtew 1/7/2014 12:34:24 AM

    CNET Editors Claudia Cruz, Roger Cheng, and Ty Pendlebury getting settled in the 5th row with me...

  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 12:34:34 AM
    @allman: I can imagine an assortment of televisions, phones, and computers -- the usual. Hopefully, there will be a surprise!
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 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.
  • izme 1/7/2014 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
  • Kai 1/7/2014 12:35:58 AM
    4K camera too I supposed
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 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.

  • sarahtew 1/7/2014 12:36:13 AM

    Spotted: Josh!

  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 12:36:33 AM
    Up front is the Play Sony logo, while colorful waves move around the rest of the digital banner.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 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.

  • J White 1/7/2014 12:37:43 AM
    hopefully we see some innovation with their new 4k tvs... because as of right now Samsung has had the best suprise
  • sarahtew 1/7/2014 12:37:46 AM

    Pictured is SungChang Bong, editor in chief of CNET Korea (right), and TV editor Ty Pendlebury.

  • Gregory Opera 1/7/2014 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 Cheng 1/7/2014 12:39:42 AM
    So what do I want to see? PS5!
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 12:39:49 AM
    (Kidding, kidding)
  • allman 1/7/2014 12:40:50 AM
    come on they havent even come out with ps4 slim yet
  • ty.pendlebury 1/7/2014 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
  • Graeme 1/7/2014 12:40:55 AM
    It would be great to see 4k TVs more afforable to the masses!
  • Kai 1/7/2014 12:40:57 AM
    Or PS4S
  • Roger 1/7/2014 12:41:03 AM
    OLED or...you know the rest
  • MR SONY FREAK 1/7/2014 12:41:14 AM
    Sony to the top.
  • ty.pendlebury 1/7/2014 12:41:51 AM
    Dear Graeme, 4K will be good when we get decent upscaling from 1080p.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 12:42:11 AM
    So Sony find itself in the position of chasing after Samsung, and in mobile phones, several other companies.
  • f*ck xbone 1/7/2014 12:42:22 AM
    ps4 games please
  • new xperia 1/7/2014 12:42:26 AM
    i m looking for new xperias
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 12:42:34 AM
    The company is often criticized as being too siloed, with different units acting without the knowledge of others.
  • kmasri 1/7/2014 12:42:45 AM
    anyone else hoping to see the xperia z1f/mini released to the world?
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 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 Opera 1/7/2014 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.
  • Kai 1/7/2014 12:42:58 AM
    I thought Samsung is at the top, they have Smart Home
  • allman 1/7/2014 12:43:02 AM
    still on top in the gaming console section though
  • ty.pendlebury 1/7/2014 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 xperia 1/7/2014 12:43:09 AM
