Sony came strong with games and spoke incessantly about the innards of PS4. Mark Cerny, PS4 chief architect delivered with grace what the console was all about, with many first-party and third-party developers jumping on stage to back up his claims, all while showing their games working on the beastly new system.
When it was all said and done, gamers the world over were satisfied with the showing, and PS4 and the PlayStation Meeting winded up being the top trending events in the month of February, as was made known by Google Trends.
