Could be another one of Sony's trollings, like with the PS All Stars trailers.

All seems a bit too much for anything other than a PS4 to me

Me too. They tend to do the opposite of everything they say as well and only last week they were saying they wouldn't be going first, they'd be going best, after seeing what microsoft had.

They demolished the Dreamcast by showing off what to wait for with the ps2, and people did. I wonder if they are hoping for a similar scenario with the WiiU.

I am surprised I am genuinely excited. Happy Days : )

It's going to get SPECtacular around here on the 21st. Think I'll go for a snooze.

It will probably be a bit like it is in Call of Duty season for a while.
It is to be expected though.

PS4 will be annouced for release at end of 2013 , factor in hardware issues, supply issues , the discovery of horse meat in the HDD, we should see it about March 2015.

Exciting times for gaming :)

If it is the date that we learn about the PS4 then it'll be interesting to see how MS responds. I'll be looking forward to this date as each generation is a new start and I hold no loyalties to a brand until they release something that interests me. 2013 should prove to be a good year :)

Can anyone explain what the trailer includes? I can't watch YouTube as we don't have broadband internet on Skye yet.

Posted on 1 Feb 2013 10:27:27 GMT
Its a picture of the X, Square, Circle and triangle glowing with "See the future" written on screen. Or at least thats what I read on digitalspy. I'm at work so I cant watch it either.

Can't see the words "See the future" in the film - it starts with close ups of shiny black objects and corners which slowly reveal to be the X, square etc. It ends with a link "be the first to know" which takes you to a link asking for your bank details and passwords..only joking, it takes you to a Sony site where you can sign up to be notified by e-mail on the 20th of whatever the news is.

The video looks very hardware orientated - but this could be a giant middle finger / red herrring!

Microsoft will announce/show the next 360 at E3, they already have a countdown on Major Nelson's website ticking down to it. Very interesting that Sony's making the first move though.

Ah. I'll have to watch it later. Its probably a PS3 Super-duper Slim.

A lot of people on the Facebook page doing the same thing, assuming its PS4 and saying they will be pissed off at Sony if it isnt. Well they should be pissed off with themselves if it isnt, because its all just a case of people assuming something, and Sony has said nothing to indicate what the news will be.
Its not trolling on Sony's part, as nobody knows what it will be, so lets all calm down and stop getting over excited and wait a see what it is.
If its PS4, then fine, everyone will be happy. If its not, then nobody will feel let down that its not what they expected.

I want both consoles to be announced well before E3 so that E3 can be used purely to demo the new games/IP's coming to the next gen. Otherwise these will be overshadowed by the consoles themselves.

Posted on 1 Feb 2013 10:50:16 GMT
what does it matter its coming anyway, exactly when its announced is not that exciting to me.

A Portal Gun says:
I'm sorry but this all points to a new console, of course people will assume it is. Why would Sony make a teaser about the future for something small and insignificant? Why would they set up a dedicated press show on the 20th? I'd be annoyed more if I attended that thing and all they shown was some new PS3 games.

I think its a safe bet that this will be the PS4. What else could warrant a big event like this? the specs have already been widely leaked and it has been said not long ago that the launch will be within weeks.

Posted on 1 Feb 2013 11:04:21 GMT
It can't be yet another version of the PS3, there would be no point annoucning that, besides if it gets any slimmer or tackly cheap you will have to change its name to Katie Price.

Posted on 1 Feb 2013 11:06:31 GMT
I was kidding. The Super Slim only came out a few months ago. And no way would a hardware revision get this much attention.

I just realised I made a big mistake being excited. If my time with Sony this gen has taught me anything it's that they temper excitement with frustration and dissapointment. Probably PS4, but they will find a way for me not to want it. Download only or no rented discs, something not user friendly.
We'll see.

I know you where mate, still 2 months is plenty of time for the Sony hardware department to think up another PS3!

Announcing the PS3 Go! Now you can play all your favourite PS3 games, but not all of them! And as a bonus you get to rebuy them on the PS Store for 60 each!
