i guess they have a fair point, they might as well keep the console back for E3 or one of the big gaming shows.. i think they just wanted to make a statement of intent that its coming this year... to at least america/japan... not insignificant that the show didnt kick off till 11pm uk time...
the only thing they didnt really specifiy is if it would output 4k but i imagine it will be, i wonder will it feature a drive that can read the higher capacity blu-rays?

My guess is that there is NO chance of it playing natively in 4K. And to be honest I reckon it would be pointless. It'll be native 1920p with high framerates and upscale to 4K maybe. As for the drive, I imagine it will play normal Blue Ray disks, as Sony AFAIK are planning to make 4K material a downloadable medium.

GDDR5 is basically just DDR3 with a few enhancements like a prefetch and enhanced memory interface to increase the available bandwidth (which is good for GPU), though at the expense of increased latency (which might be worse for CPU).
Makes it roughly comparable to a Radeon 7850/7870.
