According to lead system architect Mark Cerny, development on Sony's eighth-generation PlayStation 4 (PS4) began as early as 2008. Less than two years earlier, the PlayStation 3 had officially launched after months of delays due to issues in production. The delay placed Sony almost a year behind Microsoft's Xbox 360, which was already approaching 10 million units sold by the time the PS3 launched. PlayStation Europe CEO Jim Ryan said Sony wanted to avoid repeating the same mistake with PS3's successor.

In 2012, Sony was rumored to have begun shipping development kits to several game developers consisting of a modified PC running the AMD Accelerated Processing Unit chipset (formerly AMD Fusion). In early 2013, Sony announced that an event known as PlayStation Meeting 2013 would be held in New York on February 20, 2013, to cover the "future of PlayStation". Sony officially announced the PlayStation 4 at the event. They revealed details about the PS4's hardware and discussed some of the new features it will introduce. Sony also showed off real-time footage of games in development, as well as some technical demonstrations.
