I'm so hyped right now. I hope we see a Jak and Daxter Game.
shivvy24  +   1098d ago
why would people dislike this , Jak and Daxter is Amazing and thats FACT
Prodigy-X  +   1097d ago
Xbox & Nintendo fanboys upset that the PS4 announcement is coming.
FFXI101  +   1097d ago
Because that's an opinion. Just like I said "Ni No Kuni" is the best JRPG this gen on PS3.

You are going to see people agree or disagree with me, nothing wrong with that.
I_am_Batman  +   1098d ago
If Sly 4 sells good enough Sony could handle the Jak and Daxter franchise over to Sanzaru games.
Swiftcricket  +   1098d ago
A little slow there GameSpot? I got an email from Sony the day of the announcement of this event talking about the live-stream. Surely lots of other people did too.
Soldierone  +   1097d ago
I don't know why, but I never get the "cool" emails from them anymore. I used to all the time, but I didn't even get the "see whats coming" email this time. All I get now are Store updates two days after it updates, or advertisements to games.

I'm hardly ever selected for a beta unless I do something extra lol, and I've had an account with their site since PS2, and a Ps3 account the first day it launched.
Swiftcricket  +   1096d ago
I don't always get them, I'm usually in the same boat as you even back when I was in Playstation Underground but I get lucky once in a while lol.

How is this news? PS Blog provided links to live-stream webpage along with the teaser.

Isnt Microsfot giving more info about Illumiroom at that event? I saw it on their main page on their site about it. It would be at some london event, the same one if I recall.

@ Person below, yea what if it wasnt at first? Like if Sony planned something and they are reading the internet going "wtf, this aint ps4...they keep saying ps4!! Crap, alright...frik, uhhh, screw it, Jack we need the ps4 specs I mean NOW!!!" XD I'm ready, are U E?

With this much hype Sony better announce ps4 or a lot of people will be disappointed, including me. So many people will be watching, if they don't announce it that would be the biggest ball drop of all dropped balls in ball dropping history!
BanBrother  +   1098d ago
Your last sentence made my balls drop.
LOL_WUT  +   1098d ago
It did the opposite for me ;)
stefan771  +   1097d ago
It's not Sony's fault people are jumping to ridiculous conclusions.
Kingthrash360  +   1097d ago
My point is just that, everyones watching wanting and waiting for the ps4 announcement if sony wasnt planning on announcing ps4 on the 20th they should now with all this hype... think about it there wasnt this much hype for the ps3 but there was for ps2 and look how that turned out. They would drop the ball big time to waste this oppertunity. So many people will be watching kinda like lebron James when he made the decision.
brave27heart  +   1098d ago
It was listed on the blog that it would be live streamed. GS alittle slow out the blocks.
brave27heart  +   1098d ago
Can anyone think of any possible announcement that would warrant an announcement of the announcement, live streaming an event they didnt last year and all this secrecy about "the future".

If its not PS4 I'll be astounded.
akaakaaka  +   1098d ago
the 20 will be a good day to be in here!

2 weeks left, and then afew days after that, we're getting Playstation destination. Its playstation month baby!
SloveenEfsei  +   1098d ago
I wonder how much PS4 will cost... -_-
I_am_Batman  +   1098d ago
I think Sony will go with 2 different models for launch. A basic version for about 300-399$/€ and another version with a bigger hard drive and some other goodies (PSPlus, Game, additional Controller) for 400-499$/€. Of course it's just speculation but I doubt that Sony will go above 499$/€.
akaakaaka  +   1097d ago
I can even see the PS4 cost over $800 but I bet they will set the price at $600 again.
And a sku that will cost $400 (maybe $450) with less features "basic"

It will launch with Motor Storm, Battlefield 4, A superior vertion of GTA5, new COD, some jrpg, FiFa, maybe PES, a new ubisoft IP maybe osiris, i hope for TLG, two good psn games, another racing game and that's all I can think ..

But 2014 will start with the new GG ip, GT6 prologe, Sucker Pounch new IP, Bungie new IP, maybe Reaspanw new IP, mlb, Another COD, Osiris 2, a new ghost reacom, 1313, wicher 3, Dark souls 2, MGSgz, watch dog, few rpg's, jrp's, elder s., few move games, 2 good psn games, all the sport games, a ufc and boxing game, a resident evil game(maybe for 2015). That's all I can think of..

Well then, if this isn't next gen related, it may just be the most elaborate case of 'trololage' this generation.
Ron66  +   1098d ago
I am hoping the ps4 will have siphon filter 4, just cause 3 and killzone 4 for launch!!!
ArmGunar  +   1098d ago
With the amount of exclusives on PS3 this year, Sony has to do a good line-up on PS4 to hope to sell more PS4 than PS3 ^^
kudakadere  +   1098d ago
Maybe just me , but i'm excited about next-gen Fifa games because Fifa is one of those games that makes giant leaps every generation .

HappyWithOneBubble  +   1098d ago
I don't think there's gonna be PS4 news from Sony. It's too early to me. I think there will be a PS3 price drop.
d0nT wOrrY  +   1098d ago
So how is a price drop related to "Future of Playstation"?
HappyWithOneBubble  +   1098d ago
Well a PS3 price cut will happen sometime in the future too lol.
BitbyDeath  +   1097d ago
Price drop might occur as well but investors are there so they're going to need to see something they can invest in.
sway_z  +   1098d ago
The fact that Sony announced this live stream is telling....if it's anything other than even the slightest PS4 news, I will be surprised.

I don't expect a media blow out...but some concrete information would be nice...all this rumour and conjecture is killing me softly ;)
shivvy24  +   1098d ago

supremacy  +   1098d ago
guys i know some of you refuse to think that this meeting will be about the next PlayStation console; you all may hav your reasons and i can respect that.

But i will say this, the ps4 will be announced towards the end of the conference and just like the last ps meeting which took place in tokyo. Sony will show a big list of publishers signed up for ps4 development and over a 100 games will be confirmed to be in development.

I say this because to Sony PlayStation meetings have become much more important than the old e3 expos which they will likely use to showcase a few new games sequels and new ips.

Remember the vita was announced in a PlayStation meeting, and later showcased at an e3 where it didnt get as much attention pass say...bioshock vita announcement.

The londom event will be huge as well, given that the ps4 will be on the market by then but not yet in europe. To add to this, the ps4 wont be backwards compatible like some dream it to be, rather theres a rumor going around suggesting that games like beyond two souls and the last guardian will see two different versions, that being a ps3 and a ps4 version. in essence what we are seeing with the vita and ps3 is what we are likely to see with the ps3 and ps4 going forward until Sony stops making ps3s.

The ps4 will be talked about for sure.

I have a feeling that the main focus will be center on the social experience and the new controller playing a key role in all this.

I am just hoping things like voice msg, xchat,party ect are all prsent or atleast talked about so that the fanboys could finally shut up about it.

Ofcourse i can be wrong about all this, but thats just my two cents on the matter. given everything thats been hinted thus far.
llMurcielagoll  +   1098d ago
Alright, that this is good news to me, Im pretty sure we'll be able to stream it on Sony's own website.

Gotta be sure to bookmark the page with the live-stream link once we know where it is and stay tuned at 2300 hours GMT.
Sharius  +   1098d ago
dammit, it will be 6:00 am feb 21 in my country that day, oh well, i known that i'll getting sick on that day and take my day off from work
jacksheen0000  +   1098d ago
The PS4 will have a touch screen controller.

My question is, how responsive are the PS4's touch screen controller is compared to the wii U's touch screen game pad?

remanutd55  +   1098d ago
why are you asking a question no one on this site can answer yet? how about you asking that question when gamers get their hands on the system? common sense.
jacksheen0000  +   1098d ago
Actually I was being sarcastic. My Bad.
remanutd55  +   1098d ago
Oops didnt get the sarcasm, sorry lol, well i think rumors are saying the it will be the same technology used on the rear touch pad on the vita so it should be as responsive as the vita.
Rockefellow  +   1097d ago
Something tells me you don't actually know what sarcasm is.
remanutd55  +   1098d ago
i will be working that day so i wont be able to watch it live but im pretty sure it will hit youtube the same night.
supremacy  +   1098d ago
Yeah, same here. I believe the touchpad will mainly serve as another input, one which can be use for the web browser. And ultimately bring that vita ressemblence and feel to a greater audience.

I also feel that the share button would be for more than just sharing videos. Maybe this will play some kind of social role like say near does with the vita, like notifications and updates on friends and the like.
But really who knows.
