Eleven Funny Memes In Response to Sony's PlayStation 4 "Announcement" Last Night

Page 2 of 3

While Sony's czars revealed some of the PlayStation 4's specs (it's built on 64-bit x86 architecture from AMD, will include 8GB of GDDR5 memory, and can handle 176 gigbytes per second of bandwidth...yada yada) and trumpeted its new "social" features, they didn't provide either an actual release date or an actual glance of what the infernal machine looks like.

Well, except for the largely unoriginal and underwhelming DualShock 4 controller, which largely resembles its predecessor, save for a new trackpad (similar to a laptop's), LED bar, and ability to record game footage and post it online.

At any rate, a huge amount of gamers seemed simultaneously disappointed and frustrated with Sony's so-called event (big surprise) expressed their feelings online about both it and the PlayStation 4, including plenty of satirical and humorous memes. Here's a round up of the best visual rancor we've come across.

9. You Knew This One Was Coming
