Hello, everyone. We are live.
We'll have Brian Tong and Donald Bell doing an in-house video stream shortly. Then we'll switch over to the Sony feed and our own live blog coverage from Scott Stein, Jeff Bakalar, and Dan Ackerman, with Sarah Tew shooting photos from the event.
Oh. Roger Cheng is in there, too. My bad, Roger.
Roger Cheng, executive editor for CNET News, here alongside Dan Ackerman, Jeff Bakalar, and photographer Sarah Tew.
Yes, the Sony feed kicks off at 6:00 PM ET.
We're all getting seated and set up right now. Bare with us, as our fingers are thawing.
@Sam A: I'd guess 75 - 100 minutes -- but that's just a guess.
We'll have a live video stream and photos soon.
So we're in the Hammerstein Ballroom in the Manhattan Center in midtown New York.
Streamed gaming is a strong bet in some capacity. i'd be shocked if it was stream-exclusive. Retail sales are still a huge portion of console and game sales.
The CNET team got here at about 4:30 pm ET, and there was already a considerable amount of people outside. By the time the doors opened a few minutes ago, the queue had stretched down the block.
Crowd is getting seated, slowly. From waiting outside for so long in 30-degree weather, our fingers are still a little too cold to type accurately...
The Hammerstein Ballroom has four floors of seats, and it looks like all of them will be filled. This is a biggie, folks.
I'd be psyched if they went 1080p resolution for all games going forward.
Boo 4k. Not enough TV's. Need a giant in a huge living room to really see the benefit. Don't get our TV editors started on 4k.
Center stage is a large screen with the PlayStation logo. Below that are three smaller wide screens sitting next to each other.
There's a splash of gentle blue light at the front.
