by Wesley Ruscher

With the PlayStation 4 launch right around the corner there is much to be excited for.

High-res shots of the DualShock 4 and PlayStation 4 Eye
by Jordan Devore

Additionally, Sony has images of the PlayStation 4 Eye to go along with those specifications we shared. All I can think about is how much stuff I already have sitting on my television stand and how I'm going to make room for this device. Can I stack the Wii Sensor Bar on top of Kinect while on PS4 Eye? I've got tape.

PSA: DualShock can sub for PS Move Navigation Controller

Sony's pricing of PlayStation Move is pretty clever. They can get away with saying that the Move experience costs less than $100, since the Sports Champions bundle -- which comes with the game, the PlayStation Eye camera...
