40w ago - Sony Marketing Promotions Specialist Michael Steranka announced today that PlayStation 4 will be present at Comic-Con 2013 including the first public PS4 hands-on presentation with details below.

To quote: As Comic-Con regulars know, there's nothing more valuable at the yearly convention than time. With panel lines literally out the door and the Exhibitor Hall packed wall-to-wall with scurrying people, it's often hard to decide how to allocate your precious time. This year, we're making that decision a no-brainer. Want to know why?

You guessed it (probably because it's in the headline of this post!) - we're bringing PS4 to Comic-Con 2013.

For the first time ever, gamers can go hands-on with the PS4. On top of that, we'll be showing off some of this year's most highly anticipated PS3 and PS Vita titles, as well as participating in a number of panels throughout the weekend. If that's not enough, we're also hosting contests at the PlayStation booth every day where we'll be giving away PS Vitas!

To help you plan your Comic-Con experience accordingly, here's a list of everything PlayStation at this year's convention:
