    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.
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:32:15 PM
    Hello all!
  • Joey Jo Jo 2/20/2013 10:32:16 PM
    I hope this is a gamechanger
  • kmags 2/20/2013 10:32:20 PM
    So this event actually starts in 30 minutes?
  • Rich Brown 2/20/2013 10:32:31 PM
    Oh. Roger Cheng is in there, too. My bad, Roger.
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:32:42 PM
    Roger Cheng, executive editor for CNET News, here alongside Dan Ackerman, Jeff Bakalar, and photographer Sarah Tew.
  • Rich Brown 2/20/2013 10:32:45 PM
    Yes, the Sony feed kicks off at 6:00 PM ET.
  • Kurt Johnson 2/20/2013 10:32:52 PM
    heck yeah these guys are great lol. sarcastic comments here we come.
  • Loyal member 2/20/2013 10:33:04 PM
    the leader of sony will walk onto the stadge saying "ps4 will have no games" and walk off
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:33:15 PM
    We're all getting seated and set up right now. Bare with us, as our fingers are thawing.
  • Tom 2/20/2013 10:33:30 PM
    Watching it on Xbox live
  • NemesisSW3 2/20/2013 10:33:45 PM
    Excited! Let's just hope this build-up has been worth it!
  • Mr. Alan Rickman 2/20/2013 10:33:54 PM
    $529 is going to be waayyy too high of a price point
  • Sam A 2/20/2013 10:34:10 PM
    any idea on how long the event is supposed to last?
  • Ubi2447 2/20/2013 10:34:40 PM
    As long as they aren't going the direction
    the 720 rumors are going with online only play they could potentially have a big leg forward
  • John Falcone 2/20/2013 10:34:42 PM
    @Sam A: I'd guess 75 - 100 minutes -- but that's just a guess.

  • Psvitaghost12345 2/20/2013 10:34:50 PM
    Need to see pics
  • John Falcone 2/20/2013 10:35:03 PM
    We'll have a live video stream and photos soon.
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:35:16 PM
    So we're in the Hammerstein Ballroom in the Manhattan Center in midtown New York.
  • Rich Brown 2/20/2013 10:35:40 PM
    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.
  • TheAffectedRyan 2/20/2013 10:35:51 PM
    As a Xbox owner i'm here to see what to buy with these next gen consoles. Not as a fan boy but a soon to be educated gamer. Excited.
  • Michael Lombardi 2/20/2013 10:35:52 PM
    GTA V on the PS4! Thats' what I want!
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:36:18 PM
    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.

  • dan.ackerman 2/20/2013 10:36:58 PM
    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...
  • sarahtew 2/20/2013 10:36:59 PM
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:37:05 PM
    The Hammerstein Ballroom has four floors of seats, and it looks like all of them will be filled. This is a biggie, folks.
  • Rich Brown 2/20/2013 10:37:08 PM
    I'd be psyched if they went 1080p resolution for all games going forward.
  • berthman 2/20/2013 10:37:16 PM
    I want to see Flash Memory, Memory card reader again for camera pic downloads, import of music from USB / Network and also network control of Output devices in the vain of Sonos etc.
  • sarahtew 2/20/2013 10:37:20 PM
  • Aaron Tillery 2/20/2013 10:37:38 PM
    WHy does everything need to have a touch screen its a console games lets keep one thing in tech the same
  • Otaku 2/20/2013 10:37:51 PM
    4k be nice
  • Rich Brown 2/20/2013 10:38:22 PM
    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.
  • sarahtew 2/20/2013 10:38:30 PM
  • ilbknownas1 2/20/2013 10:39:07 PM
    how many people are at this event?
  • sarahtew 2/20/2013 10:39:11 PM
  • Knives Envy Adams 2/20/2013 10:39:11 PM
    @RichBrown YUP. AMEN
  • Bob Dole 2/20/2013 10:39:13 PM
    Rich Brown, While that would be intresting some games simply don't need 1080p.
  • Rich Brown 2/20/2013 10:39:23 PM
    I agree, Bob Dole.
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:39:36 PM
    Center stage is a large screen with the PlayStation logo. Below that are three smaller wide screens sitting next to each other.
  • Roger Cheng 2/20/2013 10:39:52 PM
    There's a splash of gentle blue light at the front.
