9 Reasons Why Sony May Not Announce The PlayStation 4 This February

"From the moment announced their February 20th event, the news reports have all converged on the idea that the event will be the announcement of the PlayStation 4. Most of this information originates from a Wall Street Journal article that cites “sources”, but nothing more. There is a possibility this announcement will not be the big PS 4 reveal everyone is expecting and here are 9 reasons why this event could possibly catch everyone off guard." - LazyTechGuys (PS3, PS4, Sony)

The backlash if it isnt will be huge!

The thing is if Sony did not know people would expect a ps4 reveal from that teaser I really dont know what to say...

But Im betting it is...
Seraphemz  +   785d ago
I dont get why there would be backlash against SONY. They didnt ever say that it was about the PS4.

Im starting to think that it is, but you never know.

Either way, there are going to be a lot of people tuned in on the 20th to see what happens.

Sony fans - Everyone on youtube its the PS4, its coming and then the 20th sony announce.

Hey guys its me jack tretton and I have a new announcement, it's the PLAYSTATION VITA $50 cheaper.

The good news with that announcement atleast vita will be cheap, the bad news the fans and investors would be piss. But I believe its the PS4 without a doubt, sony basically have us right where they want us.

They want articles like this too to keep our brains on the PS4, they don't mind any opinions right now from anyone as long as your talking about it then mission accomplish.

The world wide media would destroy Sony. Their stocks would tank.

@zeeshan perhaps he is an xbox fanboy and his opinions are unpopular if not untrue, but there's no need to degrade him and yourself by namecalling. everyone has a right to their own opinion and the day that i can't voice it on this site will be the day i stop visiting this site for good.

he only has one bubble anyways
zeeshan  +   785d ago
Actually, the reason I am doing this is because I had reached a certain limit. There is only so much trolling that you can be patient with.

I have absolutely no problem when people share their opinion but there is a difference between sharing your opinion and trying crap on every other story related to SONY and their Playstation products.
maniacmayhem  +   785d ago

Why even feed him or give him that much attention. You have damn near followed him in almost every article and posted the same thing. You're just as bad as he is.

I think it is because right after the teaser a lot about the console was "leaking" out. From both sony and Microsoft, sony had less info leaked about until right after the teaser went up. I mean there obviously won't use the whole conference to go into detail about it but they will unveil it. I believe they will unveil it and show some montage of some titles that's coming to it just like they did when they announced the NGP. Gdc will have behind close doors showings and then they will go all out at E3.

I also believe ps4 will be announced on the 20th, but how does an increase in rumors about supposed specs of the ps4 prove that the rumors themselves are true? Seriously, are people so dense that they believe every little rumor they hear? Do u not understand that these "leaks" tend to appear on websites that look like they were put together by amatuers? Why arent these leaks on sites like Egmnow, ign, etc...yet on sites filled to the brim with sensational headlines and a thousand ads on one page? For hits, that's why. (Not to say that ign and Egm dont have ads too, but if I was an insider, I would leak info to a site that is known for having connections, rather than sites run by men who live in their mother's attic).

If the PS4 is not what Feb. 20th is about there will be a meltdown on the internet. If the PS4 is indeed what Feb. 20th is about then there will still be a meltdown but in a good way. Either way it's going to get pretty hot come Feb. 20th.
Those were ridiculous reasons...

Ps3 still has games coming out? Really? You expect sony to just stop releasing good games for the ps3 just cuz the ps4 is coming out soon?

"9 Reasons Why Sony May Not Announce The PlayStation 4 This February"

give me ONE reason why we should trust a random guy on the internet about that?
Sandmano  +   785d ago
I dont think the support for the ps3 will stop look how long the support for the ps2 lasted.
WooHooAlex  +   785d ago
Ya, that really isn't really a valid reason. Sony released God of War II after the PS3 launched.
Just because they have good titles available on PS3 leading up to a new console launch doesn't really mean anything, just that Sony likes to give us good games late in the console cycle.
KentBlake  +   785d ago
I couldn't find a single reason that made any sense whatsoever.
Sandmano  +   785d ago
Agreed all the reasons were not convincing at all but as a journalist these days especially its hard for them not to jump on the hype train and make articles like this to get hits. Im sure the guy himself that wrote this article probably isnt convinced with these reasons...
Chaoslegion8  +   785d ago
In aroundabout way they did. Cause you don't make a cryptic teaser invite investors
Just so you can cover a handheld that up this point really doesn't have anything going for it.
And that gaikai? Nope! That's gonna be left more than likely for E3 to be discussed.

Could this date be used to announce new ps3 games? Possible but with all the nextgen leaks we've been hearing of lately I believe the time is now to bring out the ps4. And the teaser served
As the warning shot.
jp_footy2  +   785d ago
Reason 3 is valid, but then again they could announce a ps3 price cut to $149.99.

Knowing the history from Sony and that we know a new generation consoles is just around the corner I think it's safe to bet that it is a PS4 announcement.
Chaoslegion8  +   785d ago
It's also very possible that we could be playing the ps4 around September or October since Sony
Seems destined to beat Microsoft at every turn. By showing it later this month you would have to
The fact that its pretty close to completion and very feasible to have playable demos at E3 and be ready for shipping out early September/ October.

Also likely is the fact that the GTA delay will coincide with the ps4 release in September and could
Be used as a launch title.
WooHooAlex  +   785d ago
9 Reasons they will

1) They want to get out ahead of Microsoft
2) Sony knew that teaser video would create PS4 hype
3) They know if they show anything besides the PS4, it will be a massive disappointment
4) Its time for new consoles
5) What else could it be?
6) Almost all of their first party studios have been working on next-gen titles for a while now
7) If its coming out in 2013, they need to start hyping it
8) If its coming out in 2013, games are ready to be shown.
9) Its the PS4
Tonester925  +   785d ago
If its a PS4 bring back the Piano Black finish. I loved that on the fat ps3
WooHooAlex  +   785d ago
It's sexy but I hope they use a material that's nice to look at but doesn't scratch so easily. The Phat PS3 showed everything.

It's the PS4. Also they send emails so you can sign up to be the first to know.

Stupid to think it could be anything else than the PS4 really.
BitbyDeath  +   785d ago
Why else would Sony hold a massive conference with investors and media about seeing the future of Playstation?

Only way they could have made it anymore obvious would have been by showing the PS4 logo on the trailer but then that'd make the trailer the announcement and not the conference.

Should not be that hard to put the puzzle pieces together.

PS3 is the PS4.

And PS4 is also the PS4.
dlpg585  +   785d ago
and the ps4 is also the wii u, nintendo and sony finally made up to make that disc based console together lol.
Karpetburnz  +   785d ago
I think its the PS4, Why else would Sony tease a release date?
WeAreLegion  +   785d ago
Is this translated?!? This guy's writing is atrocious!
younglj01  +   785d ago
If Agent,TLG,Syphon Filter,The Gateway or 8 days been teased on the PS3 would be even more huge then the PS4.Think about an pre-E3 showing of secret games in development and then at e3 they show on-stage demos of them all i would want that even more personally.

Im sorry but I still like the smartest move for Sony is too delay the PS4 and just release blockbuster titles month after month now that would be awesome.
madjedi  +   785d ago
I don't expect to see anything substantial till e3, even then i don't see the ps4 launching till holiday 2014. If that gives ms a yr without direct competition, so be it they didn't exactly utilize it's head start this gen in any meaningful way.

And yeah the wiiu is already out, but nintendo isn't even trying to go against ms or sony next gen. If they were they would have taken 3rd party devs needs into the wii u's design.
