LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Sony on Monday provided the world the first look at its new PlayStation 4 (PS4) console, promising to combine its film, music, television and game strengths in a powerhouse home entertainment box.

Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House touted the next-generation videogame consoles as being built for the future while, at the same time, saying the company was remaining true to its predecessor the PlayStation 3.

"This is a completely new platform and, in many ways, represents a completely new PlayStation," Mr House said during a press event here on the eve of the premier E3 videogame expo.

"We are more than ever capitalising on the vast network of Sony divisions and the reputation of one of the biggest and most powerful entertainment brands in the world."
