PS4 ‘getting ready’ for possible May Reveal date

Sony’s vice president of home entertainment, Hiroshi Sakamoto, hinted at the announcement of the PS4 during an interview with Emol (translated).
Sakamoto spoke about “a new announcement related to the new PlayStation.” He also said that the news is “still a big secret” and that the PlayStation side of Sony, “are getting ready for it.” Hmm, all very cryptic and ambiguous, but with all the rumours that have surfaced over the last couple of months, one can only suspect that he is talking about the next PlayStation, even though he did not outright mention it. (Dev, Next-Gen, Tech)

Not really a launch but an unveiling. I could see it if they have to which I think they do. At E3 they have the Vita to sort out and by revealing the console before they could do a Nintendo and concentrated on some other aspects of it (I say Gaikai and how that will interact with both the PS4 and Vita with of course other games)
asmith2306  +   702d ago
I can't wait for an announcement about the PS4 purposely because of the amount of rumors and articles that have been doing the rounds, especially in the last three weeks. I know Sony won't disappoint me on the hardware side so I just want to hear about the next-gen PSN, PS+, Gaikai, etc. I want to see the services side of the next PS4. I really hope they keep PSN free though.

I just hope it further along and we don't have to wait for 2014. I remember how I felt when they showed the Vita then announced early 2012 for the US. I was so pissed.

If only this were a Nintendo article this would have been an epic comment. Regardless, a gif is required now.

I'm getting so sick of Next-gen rumors, I just want to see it happen already lol
Gamer1982  +   701d ago
Ms and Sony know we all know there's a console coming out this year so whats the point of keeping it secret any more?

Well actually to answer my own question there playing with each other waiting for one to announce so the other can announce there's with a bit more RAM or a slightly earlier release date. They want one to release details before the other so they can then 1-up them. Who loses with this? We all do.. as it will probably lead to non-parity multi-platform games once again the upcoming nex-gen.

I'm expecting the PS4 to be a new era for not just the playstation but Sony as a business by creating a brand/ design/ appeal that is synonymous across the whole Sony product range like they have already started to do.

Fix the title, it should be May announcement.

Why?
First of all, it's the title of the actual article, and secound, it's not possible to change after the post is approved.
steve30x  +   702d ago
The rules of posting a news story states that you use the original news story title so changing the title of this is not optional.

Lucreto  +   702d ago
1. Announce in May with a few tech demos and some small features.

2. At E3 talk about Gaikai, some first software for launch. Price and final specs.
USEYOURFIST  +   702d ago
Makes sense to announce after the last of us, am looking forward to next gen but all these rumour articles are going to get very annoying over the next few months

That's the spirit! Though May 10-15 is more realistic.
FACTUAL evidence  +   701d ago
Wouldn't that be cool if Sony's last game before the ps4 was "The Last of Us"? Epic.
EliteDave93  +   702d ago
Would be kinda stupid to reveal PS4 the day after the Last Of Us release. It would totally overshadow the game.
Walker  +   702d ago
I know, That were just an example.
DeletedAcc  +   702d ago

Prodigy-X  +   702d ago
I feel like it going to be on May 21, 2013 when they reveal it.

Sony: Release the kraken!
..eh i mean drop the Uncharted 4 bomb !
nukeitall  +   702d ago
Ironically, the kraken is a creature that nobody really has seen.

Surely you wouldn't want Uncharted 4 to be mentioned and sighted, but never released. :D
Hanso  +   702d ago
surely not ^^
hellvaguy  +   702d ago
How do you know for sure no one has ever seen a kraken?
tommygunzII  +   702d ago
A 30' squid could be mistaken for a kraken.

I hope GT6 gets announced for the PS4
tommygunzII  +   702d ago
Not sure whats up with the disagrees. PD has been working on GT6 for years now, it should be ready for the PS4 launch.
steve30x  +   701d ago
Thats N4G for you. You just get used to it after a while.
stefan771  +   701d ago
Not likely considering devs don't have the final specs
BitbyDeath  +   701d ago
@stefan771, games would be made within the specs of the dev boxes they are provided.

Gorbenshore  +   702d ago
I agree. A new Motorstorm game that matches the 2005 CGI trailer would be fantastic. The PS4 should definitely pull it off.
ziggurcat  +   702d ago

Bring it on!

Wii U says hi.
stage88  +   701d ago
Well technically you're right but I don't class the Wii U in the same standard as the next gen Playstation and Xbox.

The Wii U fits more in comparison to the PS3 and 360. We all know that the next gen systems are hinted to be exceedingly more powerful.
Ezz2013  +   701d ago
nothing on wii u is next gen
at best all what i saw look as good as most 3rd party titles on consoles

I don't see how its coming out in May when Kaz already stated that "We will let Microsoft make the 1st move to next gen?" But if it is May? I'm ready, Bring on the PS4.

poor stage88 they ignored you again haaaaaaaaaa

tommygunzII  +   701d ago
This will be a much better launch than the PS3. Microsoft better come strong, Sony will be ready this time.
VforVideogames  +   701d ago
WHAT?
Sony will be ready this time? i dont think so, sony needs to announce the ps4 first but its not going to happen wish means history will repeat. 3rd place again for sony.(sad face)

Soldierone  +   701d ago
They could do what they did with the PS3 and let website help market and talk about it. When PS3 was announced, they sent units to Gamespot etc and they all opened it up, and showed off more gameplay etc....

The plan could be "May reveal, talk more at E3, let websites dig into it, talk more at Gamescom etc" Vita had a similar route.

Just get rid of the sales talk at E3 entirely, no one cares. We are not stockholders, we are gamers and retailers etc.... If MS takes shots, let them, sony has Vita, PS3, and PS4 to talk about now.
