The PlayStation 4 has been officially revealed during this evening's Sony's PlayStation Event, held at The Hammerstein in New York City. The new console is scheduled to launch Holiday 2013.

The announcement marks what feels like one of the longest console generations to date, arriving six years, four months, nine days and 18 hours after the North American launch of the PlayStation 3. In fact, the time between the PlayStation 2 and 3's launch was six years, eight months and seven days.

In contrast, the time between the original Xbox and Xbox 360 was a mere four years and one day. If the next Xbox launches later this year, it will have been nearly eight years since the Xbox 360's launch in November of 2005.
