Sony teases us with “See the future” post. Playstation 4 to be announced in February?

Straight from Sony’s twitter is an invitation to “see the future”. The twitter post is short (duh), and leads to a webpage containing not much information besides a date (February 20th, 6pm EST) and a promotion video.

The video itself (below) really doesn’t show much, so this could be anything. People are of course thinking mostly of a Playstation 4 announcement, but it could also be a hardware redesign of the PS Vita (a slim model?), a new huge game franchise, or anything else… you name it. The Playstation 4 sounds like the most likely candidate though, as some sites hinted that Sony was actually planning on announcing it way earlier, but couldn’t because of a lack of launch titles.

You can check Sony’s announce website here for “more” details (yeah, I told you, there’s not much to see)

How excited are you about the possibility of an official playstation 4 announcement, or next gen consoles in general? Are any of you shifting to Microsoft for their next console, or to PC gaming?

Thanks to everyone who sent us the tip!

    Will they release new games for the vita? Please do or the vita would be really dead and ps4 will most likely not have ps3 compatibility. Who would buy a ps4 if its like $500? buy a pc instead:D

      No, the Vita is totally dead and there will never ever be another game for it. That’s why they’re doing so little patch vulnerabilities in the PSP emulator.

    I wouldnt count a redesign of Vita out of the equation. If any of you have ever opened your PsVita you would realize how easy it would be to reposition the components inside. As far as it being a SLIM version, I seriously doubt that, as the PsVita is already a compressed brick. Which is why it is pretty hard to break it from dropping it (nothing in the unit can be jarred and moved around (truth be told, the PsVita is ingeniously designed)). And, because of the battery and both touch screens, it cant get ANY SLIMmer than it already is. And bad sales of the units is even more reason for a redesign (a redesign is instituted to make the unit seem more fresh to potential customers in hopes to promote more people to purchase the unit. Which seems to work ALMOST every time (with PsPGO being the exception to the rule)). And because the tech that the Vita uses is now 3 years old, production would actually cost the same price(if things like extended battery are included in the redesign) or less than the current model of Vita (if they dont add anything to unit and just move around the inner components and change the shell). A redesign would also stop alot of ppl from complaining about the memory card cost, as a redesign would more than likely be designed with interior memory (given the bad reception of Sony’s over priced memory cards).

    All that said, I believe the announcement is just what ppl expect it is going to be… A prototype showing of the PS4 and some kind of either redesign of the Vita or announcement of new software development (OS change, Gaikai intergration (more than likely to improve Remote Play or to remove the need of Remote Play to begin with), and maybe new optimization of the 3G antenna, as it is extremely limited atm). That’s my prediction.

    It’s definitely the PS4.

    The “swooshes” coincide with the UI of the new Sony phones like the Xperia Z.

    …it’s also hinting that it’ll use a lot of electricity so probably a console … or not, whatever

      Yeah it might be, the chances are high, but only time will tell and somehow, anyhow I’m absolutely not exited as I was back then in the PS2/PS3 era.

    I believe it will be ps4 related, but hope that a vita slim is announced for me both are must haves. Better connectivity for vita, and an ebay app would be nice. I can have dreams can’t I ?

    what a waste of 45 seconds. oooh look the shapes on the controller are in 3d with lights buzzing around. whoop dee fucking do.

    not buying another console. especially with them pushing so hard to lock individual game’s to consoles so they only work once and have to be bought brand new.

    would not surprise me in the slightest if it shipps with this technology in it but deactivated, and after a while they activate it.

    I hope you know the parts for a PS4 costs 350 dollars to build by yourself.

    Since you are the arrogant console trash ignorant that the last good console was the PS2, you will gladly dish out 600 dollars for one.
