I can't believe ps4 is coming! I remeber N64 and remeber how real I though wwf smackdown was on ps2! Now we get ps4! Great time to be alive no matter what platform I am sure we will see games that we can say "This is the best looking game I have seen in my entire existence!!"

And most of all I am glad the company who support core gamers the most is taking the initiative like a boss.

Sony is being super smart this time and getting the jump on announcing their next console. It's gonna be just like the Vita conference 2 years ago where they showed off the basics, but no price point. They might give off the specs, though.

Sony learnt from their mistake, what held the ps3 back was the huge price point, low exclusives early on and releasing 1 year after xbox2 , this time they have fixed this and now going in with a lower price point and great exclusives, free online, sony will dominate !

Sony has proven they can bring out great titles no matter if they release first or last. I just don't think they will show a big leap in graphics AT FIRST like the jump from ps2 to ps3 tech demos. Anyone else feel this way?

Maybe it's because we've seen great graphics all this gen but will they show as something that makes the ps3 look like crap just like the ps3 made ps2 look like crap? I think it will take awhile. Thing's the will be showing off is the power, how it can multitask and stuff. ie. LBP 3, it will be hard to overload the level creator meter. Thoughts?

@subtenko
Well, Watch_Dogs @ 1080p/60fps makes pretty much every PS3 game look like crap (except a few heavily optimized first-party titles like TLOU or Beyond).

The hype for this has honestly blown the roof. Think it just goes to show how desperate most ppl are for next gen consoles. To be honest I feel the same way I felt when the ps1 was announce.
Neixus  +   441d ago
want more hype? my speculation.

As far as i know, i may be the first person to find out something like this..
Watch the teaser, now, what is the theme of it? Blue glassy thingies,yeah.

Now look at this site, which Sony bought up long time ago http://gaikai.com/. tell me, what is the theme of that one? Blue glassy thingies.
If you click ''About'' on that site, it says that the future is bright, and the teaser sony released, was named ''See the future''

me think two things:
1. The ps4 overall theme, is that blue thingies, and they will announce the ps4 at 20th
2. as they said ''see the future'', which can also mean that they will announce gaikai, and save ps4 for later.. (GDC) But then again, ps4 is future aswell, everything is future :<
juandren  +   441d ago
I saw everything you mentioned lol. It's actually quite obvious in the video. My thoughts were just this - what would Sony have to announce about Gaikai that they couldn't just put in a report or a blog even?
FarCryLover182  +   441d ago
Gaikai is a big thing, but that is definitely not going to take place on February 20th at a press conference where all the press and investors are.

But we all know what cloud gaming is, the PS4 is what is deserving of a big press conference.

7 years a gen is overkill if you ask me - the standard should be 5 at most.

I was really really considering ditching console gaming for PC gaming if Sony or MS did not announce the PS4 or 720 this gen...hopefully these rumors are true as I have been a console gamers my entire life but I will not play on 7 year old hardware anymore.

Its gotten to a point that I do not get excited about games anymore...A new God of War and Gears is coming out and I should be hyped but I am not and not even thinking about purchasing them because lets be honest here apart from adding a little more eye candy what else can developers do with limited RAM.
Conzul  +   441d ago
Oh, you know....tell a story, or something like that.
I_am_Batman  +   441d ago
I'm not desperate at all and to be quite honest I didn't even care that much for next gen cause there are so many games I missed this gen so I need some time to catch up. But after seeing the 'See the Future' teaser things have changed. I can't wait too see the PS4 now.

In respect of your comment, This should be used as the PlayStation 4's start up screen.

I love that they have a picture of the president of Sony in the background
Timesplitter14  +   441d ago
I can't wait to see what funny memorable moments the PS4 unveil will bring. I'd fucking fall off my chair if they announced a racing game for PS4's launch and then Kaz Hirai barges onto the stage and screams "It's RIIIIIIIIIIDGE RACER!"
eyeDEVOUR  +   441d ago
hell i hope not.... the ridgeracer that launched on ps3 was just embarrassing...

now a new Rage Racer or Destruction Derby would RAWK!!!!
TheFallenAngel  +   441d ago
I can't wait to hear about PS4. Will go to the midnight launch!
kingmushroom  +   441d ago
with such good games coming to ps3 and new IP's sony could squeez one more year for the Ps3 or more, but on the other hand I'm ready for a PS4 and can't wait to pick one up day 1.

All I know is they better announce the PS4 on the 20th or there will be an uproar on the internet for sure. It's kind of funny how Sony made a statement about how they didn't care about letting M$ announce their next gen console first and then BAM this happens, I really hope Sony delivers.
llMurcielagoll  +   440d ago
The more I research into this, the more agony I get out of it... Don't know how I will have the patience to wait until Feb 20th...

I read somewhere that there will be a livestream on the event. I will be one of the first to watch indeed!
