If last night’s unexpected teaser trailer didn’t make things obvious enough, sources have indicated that the PlayStation 4 will debut on 20th February. According to the Wall Street Journal, “people familiar with the matter” have hinted that the hotly anticipated next generation console will make its first appearance during the event.

The snoops added that the new system will feature more “social gaming aspects”, and will be focused on how players “interact with the machine” rather than technological improvements. We already know that the platform holder is hoping to introduce a refreshed controller, but there have been rumours of Kinect-esque cameras in the past.

Exactly what the new platform will entail, of course, is still under wraps. The good news is that we won't have to wait very long to find out. Sony has confirmed that it will be live streaming the entire press conference online, so you’ll be able to unravel the future for yourself. And, naturally, we'll be sitting alongside you for the entire ride. It’s going to be a really crazy month.
