Yes, Sony Will Announce the PlayStation 4 on 20th February

Posted by Sammy Barker

Event will be live streamed online

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.

Ehh... Is it okay if I stick with PS3 and Vita until 2014? I don't wanna let go of PS3 yet. :(

Really hyped for this, hope it doesn't disappoint. I don't expect a ton of info but details on the system's features and a few games will be good enough. Set the tone for the big reveal at E3.

Wait what if the new controller of the PS4 is the Vita O_O
They said that the controlled will be linked to your PSN so its kinda possible.

@Epic I don't think it's likely myself, but I think you'll see an expansion on the two systems' cross-platform features.

After the sloppy start to the PS3 and the mess of a start Vita has had it'll take something monumental to make me want this on day one. 99.9% chance I'll be sticking with what I've got for the next year or two.

I am pretty sure that Vita will be an optional controller for the New PS!

I had a great start with the launch PS3. MotorStorm, Resistance, even Untold Legends (in my defense- I'd spent a huge amount of time with the PSP game).

With all of the developers and publishers closing, yea they better concentrate more on features than power.

I think it's too early to reveal a PS4, I think people will be slightly disappointed come Feb. 20th.

My heart can't take all this excitement. Too much big news in one week. God, why are you standing at the end of this dark tunnel?

lol I just got far cry 3, so I'm not upset with them at all for saying that the graphical improvements will be second to bettering the concept of w/e the next gen will bring as an experience. Very futuristic/artistic move if you ask me. Tech isn't just about MHz and RAM, and Sony's always tried to blend functionality with aestheticism. What I mean is, I'll sell my car for a ps4 if I have to.

Crazy!

Won't be getting it at launch, but I'm hyped beyond belief. I thought a 2013 PS4 would be too soon, and still kind of do. But hey, Sony hopefully still knows how to make an awesome system.

I'll be waiting until I get PS4 to get Sony games, so my PS3 will only be turned on every once in a blue moon.

Don't disappoint Sony, or I'll have to beat my head against a wall!

Well, that reminds me of a certain other Japanese games company...

In any case, I can't wait 'til Feb 20!
