What To Expect From Sony’s “PS4″ Event Next Week

VGR: That is exactly what the announcement of the event was: a tease, but the educated guess by the internet is that Sony will be announcing the next Playstation, codenamed Orbis, probably final product name Playstation 4, aka PS4. But the thing is we really don’t know what exactly Sony will say at this event. All we have are rumors and speculation. So let’s take a look at some of that speculation and make some educated guesses on what will and won’t come true. (PS Vita, PS4, Sony)

The reveal of the PS4!!!

That's what I want and expect

sony has never called it a "PS4" event. people have just jumped to that illogical conclusion based on zero evidence/hope.
LOGICWINS  +   1089d ago
PS4 or not, its going to be something worth getting excited about. I'd be happy if Sony at the very least showed that they actually cared about Vita's success by giving it a price drop, redesign, and announcing more titles for 2013.

Yess please. I would love switch to an IPS+ LCD screen instead of OLED.

I'm sure Sony will redesign the Vita, however I don't think it's necessary at the moment.
As for the price drop, I believe it's already at a really affordable price but they might just drop it down a notch to give that extra push.

Being an early adopter I think it's fair they waited to give the PSVITA a price drop. As a business you don't want your first supporters to feel burned.

However it has reached a point that I feel an appropriate price reduction is due.

If they called it the PS4 event, that would basically be a formal announcement of the PS4. They want some mystery going into the event.

Its the PS4.

Games and stuff.

I know 1 thing for certain: if Sony DOESN'T announce the PS4 on the 20th, the collective "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO!!!" heard the world over, will be loud enough to cause earthquakes, landslides, and ice shifting in the arctic regions....and will likely knock the Earth off it's axis, and doom us all.

LMAO

Axis, pun intended or not? Dammit. Lol

I expect to see the future of Sony and the playstation brand. I however won't hype myself for a reveal only fanboys believe Sony said the event was about.
NegativeCreepWA  +   1089d ago
While I hope not, what if the big announcement is just a new PSP Vita model. Can you just imagine the rage.
BitbyDeath  +   1089d ago
You really think Sony would invite thousands of people along to see that?
NegativeCreepWA  +   1089d ago
No, but it would make for an amusing few weeks of news.

At least some videos and games announcements and the features of the PS4 !

But I think they don't show some videos or juste 1-2
And they keep games announcements for the E3

But I keep hoping :)

I agree those could be launch titles, but $500 is too expensive IMO. I'm thinking $400 max, maybe a $299 model with a smaller HDD.
xursz  +   1089d ago
You're in the wrong place then. You should consider getting a Wiiu when the price drops later this year. I hear you can get them right now for a little over $300 "like new" on craigslist.

@xurz
I said $500 is too expensive because it would be a mistake for Sony to price it that high. Not because I'll only get one if its $300. If you care about Sony at all, like I do, then you should also be hoping they price the PS4 reasonably. Because they may not be able to recover from another botched launch like they did last time.

I'm getting one at launch regardless of price. I've already started saving for one. Don't appreciate the condescending attitude either.
Move along now.

Most likely tech demos that will sucker people in believing it's the real thing. I know I was fooled before the ps3 was released with that insane Motorstorm tech demo. Still a great game but nowhere near that tech demo. Hopefully the ps4 can pull it off this time. I would so love to play that version.
Fyflin  +   1089d ago
I don't think you were in the minority there mate, that Motorstorm announcement trailer was amazingly good! I just want to see real games, not really interested in tech demos this time around.

I wouldn't knock having a few tech demos as they're always exciting to watch but seeing more real gameplay will always be better.

all I hope is the company I work for get the security contract and I get in there for free and see it first than the press.
typeN8  +   1089d ago
I wanna see what MM has been cookin up
clintagious650  +   1089d ago
