Sony Books Huge Venue for PlayStation Meeting, Perfect Place for PS4 Reveal

With the PlayStation Meeting now one week away, excitement for the PS4′s announcement is at a fever pitch. Of course, some are still reluctant to believe that the next generation is already upon us, but the size of the meeting’s venue certainly points to the PlayStation 4′s big reveal.
-PSLS (Next-Gen, PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

I cannot hold in my excitement.

Hey now! Not in public! Well... ok, maybe the PS4 reveal is an exception....
darthv72  +   524d ago
for sony's sake
this announcement better deliver to all those who are expecting. Otherwise the internet will explode worse than sev trying hold in the excitement.
JAMurida  +   524d ago | Well said

I remember someone on here or another site say, "If Sony doesn't announce PS4, the internet will explode. If Sony does announce PS4, the internet will explode."

So either way, the internet is going to explode.

holy hell they're advertising this event on youtube! This is going to be big!
BrunoM  +   524d ago
I think it will be the ps4 for sure .. They will show the system it self the controller some gametrailers and some small game play ..

But they won't get into the inside of the system to much or at all and they will show 2 sku one at 449 and one at 499

ThanatosDMC  +   524d ago
As long as it's about games and not that cult like circus show, then we're good.

I forgot what it was called but MS made people wear some sort of cloak and made them watch something completely away from gaming.
patterson  +   523d ago
It's going to be the 2 inch Vita reveal!
BattleAxe  +   523d ago
This is going to be awesome. I hope that someone records the live stream so that I can watch it after work :D

I've been hearing a rumor that the Vita will be re-branded as the PSP2 to capitalize on the ever popular PSP name. I think that this is something that they should have done right out of the gates, but its better late then never.

ps4 announcement would be awesome, but a ff7 remake sounds just as good exclusive for ps4
please no tech demos sony, show actual gameplay
NewMonday  +   523d ago
Sony are going all out with this Steve Jobs style

Kaz will talk about Gaikai and Vita most of the conference and as he walks away at the the end he turns to say "oh..just one more thing" and pulls the PS4 out of his pocket.
Tr10wn  +   523d ago

You mean N4G right? this is the only site i read with multiples article about the same thing over and over again /r/gaming isnt even talking about it in kotaku i havent read anything related to that event and in gamespot the only thing i read was the controller thing, don't get me wrong its gonna be huge but if they dont announce it nothing will happen N4G isnt the internet and is not gonna be like the GTA5 delay is what i mean, but if they announce the PS4 in the event yeah every gaming site in the world will be talking about it.

I was also thinking, E3 in Feb? Never heard of it until now lol.

I still think and so do most that ms will release first and thats whats important not when they decide to tell you about the worst kept secret.
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   524d ago
I read that as 'I cannot hold in my excrement'. I think I might be a weird person.

Anyway, I'm sort of excited for this event, but I'm keeping that in check as I also think they might not reveal it. I hope I'm wrong.

Wow this vita slim announcement will be a huge thing!!

Lol joking.. Ps4 will own..
ziggurcat  +   524d ago
don't hold it too high, you might be disappointed when they don't reveal the next playstation.
deafdani  +   523d ago
Well, Sony is sure making a big deal out of this event. The amount of hype and noise they made for it is way too big to be something insubstantial.

The probability of this being the PS4 is very high. That's why people are excited.
Crystallis  +   524d ago
your going to the reveal in NY right Sev?
Knight_Crawler  +   524d ago
I am excited too...next gen is long over due.

I have gotten to a point where the new games do not excite me any more - the only game that has me really looking forward to it is the The Last of US, apart from that all the other games just seem meh and I do not expect anything diffrent and new apart from just better eye candy.

I am buying both consoles next gen but which ever one launches first will get most of my money.

play-asia has a section for the playstation 4 now
potedude  +   523d ago
And it says "announced - pre-orders coming soon" That is saying something...

Hi im jack trenton. $50 dollar price drop on vita!! That concludes our meeting thanks for coming.

That said, really looking forward to seeing what is being revealed. I hope this will be streamed over the intertubes!!!

Oh God! Their going to finally release the Duck game at E3 2005!

SegataShanshiro  +   523d ago
I was heartbroken when the ps3 never had this game :((
Mounce  +   523d ago
The duck game did come out, but the game design just changed a lot, it became 'Super Rub a Dub' I'd prefer the Ducks as the image showed in the demo reel though, random mini-games and PIRATE SHIPS! and CUPS OF WATER! I fully completed Super Rub a Dub, but it wasn't as entertaining as the original Rubber Duck game would've been.
FamilyGuy  +   523d ago
I bet they show full specs, what it looks like and future plans on services, apps and it's capabilities.
Probably announce a price cut or new PS3 bundles.

Theyre gonna show their plan/intentions for the PS4 and all the possibly boring stuff they want investors to know too. And when E3 comes around it'll be nothing but games, lots and lots of games running real-time on the actual hardware.
alexcosborn  +   524d ago
Sooooooo awesome!
crunchychocobo  +   524d ago
I hope this is really a PS4 reveal and not a big setup for disappointment. I should probably expect the latter so I won't be let down.
Lucreto  +   524d ago
There is little else they could announce that requires a 2,200 seat building. They are bring in not just Game media but media from all over the world. Investors and shareholders will be there also.

They are not going to announce a new vita colour.
Snookies12  +   524d ago
Could be a nice forest green Vita color though... Maybe a sale on the PSN for a couple games? Sounds like a good reveal to me!

Nah, it's the PS4. I'm sure Sony knows not to build up a ton of hype like this unless they are revealing something massive.

NastyLeftHook0  +   524d ago
it was actually a great game.
FamilyGuy  +   523d ago
They're gonna do another tech demo of how many ducks the PS4 can handle on screen at once. This time it'll be like the equivalent to the number of leaves that were on that rustling leaf tech demo.

I hope that SquareEnix Crystal Engine shows off more of what it can do with sonys new system. Witcher 3 shown real-time on ps4 would be sweet too.

Yeah, that would be great but they have to save something for E3. Maybe they will show of a game or two or maybe just tease us and then go big for E3. Who knows but that quite an impressive list. If they did all that then the Internet would shut down...haha. Can't wait!!

I'm so excited I just changed my avatar...lol.

OT: I think this is a really great move and great idea by Sony. Not only to get the upper hand on M$, but to announce and show off the system and possibly new controller as well...then come E3, have everything related to Vita & PS4 with all in-game, real-time demos being showcased and then availability, prices for launch. Really excited, cannot wait till Next Wednesday!!!

P.S. - Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the Hammerstein Ballroom the venue for the last ECW Wrestling Reunion Event??? No wonder they had to restore and remodel the place :D
