Wait and see how the online blows up if the ps4 its not announced, I will go pc gaming for 2 weeks until all the drolls come down.

Even if they werent gonna announce it originally, they will now. They have to...the timing is right. They hav the momentum...its time to get this crazy year started. Its gonna b a ride. Ending with the ps4 in my living room in November!! Sony is gonna come roaring back!

Sony needs to start pushing the vita right now so i would say new psvita game/apps and even services announcements need to happen at the show.
PS4 of course is gonna happen.

Multiple sources for the major gaming sites have confirmed that Sony are unveiling their next-gen console on the 20th, thus rendering this article pointless. Hell, we even have the specs.
user3915800  +   931d ago
Were did you get your oficial spec? Its your spec like the virtual bs in N4G rumors? cause if it is, you might want to throw the dice a few more times.
GribbleGrunger  +   931d ago
I can't help feeling that those not wanting to believe the rumours don't support Sony. I don't think the specs will be exactly the same as those drawn from dev kits but I reckon they'll be in the ball park. You get what you support. Support Kinect, paying for online and love the media aspects of the 360, that's what you'll get with the 720. If you support PS+, free online and games, that's what you'll get with the PS4. And going by the specs, that's exactly what's about to happen.

It's definitely going to be interesting because the prices will be comparable and the release dates won't be a year apart this time. I'm really looking forward to the 20th of February, but like I keep saying, there won't be much of a difference between the two systems, it will be how that power is used.

Yet none of those sources is Sony.

If it wasn't the Playstation 4 Sony would have already shot that down.
it would be to big of a let down for the entire media branch heading over there.

Playstation 4 will be shown, there might also be other things ofcourse.
GribbleGrunger  +   931d ago
Yes, this is what convinces me that the PS4 will almost certainly get announced. Sony MUST be aware of all the speculation and would want to nip it in the bud before it bit them in the arse.
JoGam  +   931d ago
True but hype is good in that case. Think about... I felt like you at first saying, if not true Sony will nip the rumors quick but then i thought, if Sony makes a statement that ps4 wont be announced, do they risk a smaller turnout for their event. Its all PR.

A patent for à PS3.5 has been created a few time ago... To extend PS3 with increased power and memory... Everybody seems to forget it ! ;)

Provide evidence, or your making it up.
KwietStorm  +   931d ago
He's not making it up, but that was never expected to actually come to fruition.
Sandmano  +   931d ago
The 20th is taking too long...
freed_paris  +   931d ago
Anyway... I think if it's not PS4 it will be a big fail for Sony because everbody's waiting for it and everybody believes it's it !
Gamer-40  +   931d ago
Absolutely true.
Agree.
Number-Nine  +   931d ago
I predict a Ridge Racer announcement
DigitalSmoke  +   931d ago
I predict more underhanded buthurt remarks from Breakbox 3fixme fannies.
Number-Nine  +   930d ago
1. i believe it's "butthurt"
2. love the playstation, so no.

Maybe the giant enemy crab is coming back?
sway_z  +   931d ago
It would be an mitigated PR disaster should Sony not announce anything PS4 related...there will be PS4 news for sure...

It's too late to stop the big wheel from spinning now!

How will it be a PR disaster? Sony hasn't said anything yet.PR only counts if you claim or promise something. It doesn't count if you keep quiet. You guys are the only ones confirming a PS4.Sony hasn't said anything yet and until they actually make some type of promise or anything they are not responsible for your assumptions.That being said I personally think it will be the PS4.I will be surprised if it isn't but not disappointed
sway_z  +   930d ago
It's a case of Perception is Reality...Sony don't have to say anything, but remaining silent knowing there is nothing to share on PS4 Feb 20th makes it a PR disaster...yeh life sucks!.

I shouldn't have to explain to you that the world and his dog will blame SONY if no PS4 news/show on 20th...you think Joe public will remember the news broke on the web/forums?

...I'm afraid the average man on the street has heard the news via word of mouth, so you should think logically my friend.

I work in PR so please do not attempt to tell me what PR is since you don't have a clue what you're typing about...and don't be so inexperienced and naive...don't let me tell you this again! Lulz

It's not PS4.
ChrisW  +   930d ago
Here's an alternate ending:

Sony is relinquishing its reins to Sega and the PS4 will actually be called Dreamcast II!

Yeah... I'm going to get a lot of hateful disagrees for this one!!!
smashcrashbash  +   930d ago
@ sway_z.Oh I see. So because you blame someone for your assumptions that makes it right now? I never denied the ignorant gamers of this gen will put all the blame on Sony and none on themselves but that doesn't justify it. Just because I lay the blame for something on someone doesn't mean it's okay.I am not naive.

I just see the ignorant stupidity for what it is. The same ignorant stupidity that plagues PlayStation owners these days. You take none of the blame.It has to be someone else's fault alone. It reminds me of people who always blame the game and never consider that it is your own crappy skills that are the problem.BTW spare me the lecture about who knows more about PR etc. I personally think the PS4 will be revealed. I just will take it like a man if it isn't instead of a whiny crybaby.Nothing will change if it isn't revealed and everything will change if it is.But mob mentality dictates that we overreact. Don't think, overreact and grab the pitchforks and torches.I have an Associate degree in Business.I know how it works. But that doesn't excuse it.They will have something big to reveal on the 20th.But just because it might not be what you think it will be is no excuse to act that way especially when it was based on your own assumptions.

You mean to tell me most people don't have at least 8mbps of stable internet connection? That is very sad if true. Well if you don't have it then go buy something else. The Gaikai idea is the way to go. I hope that is what they do. That would make the PS4 truly next gen.
Npugz7  +   930d ago
Sony would be letting down way too many people if they don't announce the PS4 and i'm sure they are aware of that!!
