Sony’s chugging along with the marketing blitz for its new console, the Playstation 4, and the company’s not shying away from nerd service. Recently Sony announced the PS4 will have  a presence at San Diego’s massive Comic-Con, happening July 18 – 21. Today Sony released more information, including the amazing news that the PS4 will be playable!

Can’t you picture the scene now; Chewbacca trying to cut in line in front of Lara Croft, Wario and the Silver Surfer in a heated match of Drive Club, Bronies vying for space against hordes of women dressed like Finn. For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, Comic-Con is known for its cosplayers. The thought of all those characters lining up to get their hands on a Dualshock 4 fills me with joy.
