I can see it now...PS4, Killzone 4 and maybe the Last Guardian as launch titles.

You know if we're going off the rumors

Imagine one model and two different bundles at launch and a regular one. A 500GB system with Killzone 4 as a bundle for all the Killzone/Shooter fans, A 500GB system with The Last Guardian for all the Team ICO/RPG fans and a standalone 500GB system for those that don't want any of the games for a reduced price, maybe?

I'm starting to set aside a little money every week, so I can go ape on launch day and buy everything I want. Can't wait!!! I like seeing so many others on the net excited too. My wife and friends don't really care, or understand how a grown man can get excited over a video game console, so it's nice to see that there are so many more like me out there... I don't feel so alone.

I'd love for Sony to use a CG trailer for Killzone 4 just for laughs

That and hell, I'd say Sony 'wins' randomly if they were able to keep FFv13 exclusive and made it a PS4 exclusive ontop of it and make everyone shit bricks. Like, what better than to break the silence with THAT kind of announcement?

Youre not alone guitarded.

My friends get excited about Motor racing. That just makes me yawn.

Each to their own but at least were engaging and interacting with our passion, not just observing it.

And age has nothing to do with it. I'll be almost 40 by the time I buy the PS4 but I hope I'll be gaming long after that.

I'd love them to show a KZ trailer everyone THOUGHT was CG.

Guitarded, Same Here! lol

In my 30s and i'm a damn proud Gamer :D

Most of my friends call everything a "Nintendo".
FunkMacNasty  +   1017d ago
I would love to see Uncharted 4, GT6, or a sequel to Heavy Rain as launch titles. Either way I'm most anticipating a launch date, so I can seriously start saving some $$. Since they are announcing well ahead of E3, you have to figure that E3 will be where they show off some games and trailers, and that Fall 2013 will be the launch window for the console.

btw, I'm with you guitarded.. many of my friends and my fiancee dont understand my videogaming obsession either! Out of all my close friends, only 2 or 3 are as passionate about gaming as I am!

i cant wait to see the ps4 and make it my background on my vita and ps3. hopefully the specs are announced and a lot of games are previewed demonstrating just how powerful the console is. i really want them to go into great detail about the console and to even give a release date and price.

next wednesday is a holiday and i cant flipping wait.
freezola75  +   1017d ago
Thats what I said @Root..

too early for a UCH4 announcement.. gotta be TLG

maybe even a KZ4...

what if they mention 8 Days? Or even Agent? That'd be some heavy ish right there!!

We know about rumors of 4G PSV

With all of these new gaming gadgets and consoles on the horizon, these are very exciting times to be a gamer.. peace

I'd rather Sony pursue newer Ip's, thats why i've always liked there consoles you never know what your gonna get, I love nintendo consoles as well don't get me wrong I own all of them except the Wii-U but it's kinda boring and predictable when you realise that the best game on the system is gonna be either Mario, Metroid or Zelda title.

But it's always different with PS consoles whether it's MGS 1, SOTC, or Uncharted 2 you can always count on a new Ip being the centre piece of a Playstation console

Be patient my loyal followers.
Skips  +   1018d ago
With all the Playstation news lately.

Media Molecule teasing new IP...
Sony Santa Monica new IP rumors...
Evolution teasing new IP...
Guerrilla Games new IP and Killzone 4 rumors...
Fumito Ueda saying it's up to Sony to release more info about TLG... etc.

Just days before the actual event. It's a little hard to be patient. LOL

Then they show the $50 price cut on the Vita.

lmao nice music for the announcement
showtimefolks  +   1018d ago
they should confirm its PS4 to really have people tune in, I don't get why they didn't approach a TV network to show it live and get even a bigger audience
dasbeer88  +   1018d ago
By the morning, that freelance journalist is probably going to have over twenty missed phone calls from a variety of different journalist groups offering a job for him/her.

Total lie. It's the PlayStation 5 that's going to be revealed on the 20th.

im buying two ps4's at launch! one to actually use and the other to have as a collection. Im sure there will be many different models of ps4 and there will be no first generation models left. I'll make sure to have mine.
Qrphe  +   1018d ago
If this is on February 21 at 8 AM Japan time, that means that in Mountain time, this will coincide with Febrary 20 at 4 PM. Feedback would be appreciated.

Edit: that indeed seems to be the case nvm.

i strongly think there will be two at launch a standalone and a bundle only makes is doing it now with the new slimms why not do it with a new system at launch heck even nintendo did it with wiiu. and with the newest ps3 systems coming with either a 250g or 500g hard drive i see ps4 coming with either one of those

Okay Sony is renting out a huge space, inviting the press, streaming it live and inviting all their stockholders and their are tons of rumors coming from both unreliable and reliable sources.Guys I think it is now safe to say we are getting the PS4 for certain.If we aren't I will be shocked
j-blaze  +   1017d ago
we already know it's PS4, but you were doubting that all the time and you are still.
anyway, soo excited! this year is going to be the best year this whole gen!

@ dafegamer

i really hope Sony support more Japanese games this time

I am tired but anyway please let it be ps4 because i want to see the graphical power. Decide later if to laugh or smile.
Freak of Nature  +   1017d ago
Media Molecule new IP...
SSM new IP
GGames new IP *OR* Killzone 4
Naughty Dog new IP (Uncharted 4 or something new?)
The last guardian

At launch? Now that's a way to launch... How about 3 of the 5 above... They do this, it would be the best launch in the history of gaming IMO... Ok dream mode off. it's just too good to be true,,,

Games that we know or most likely will be coming, are probably launch titles. We should have heard something about Uncharted by now.150 percent they clearly are making another.

Motor storm
Kill zone
Garrison  +   1017d ago
Could you guys imagine if Sony pulls a Sega and says right there in the conference: And the PS4 is available RIGHT NOW in stores. Thank you. lol
FarCryLover182  +   1017d ago
That will not happen, not one chance
GusBricker  +   1017d ago
This might be a massive screw up on Sony's part.

If they announce it on the 20th, they're going to leave MS all alone to reveal their next console at the much bigger, much more covered and not to mention on actual TV (Spike TV) event.
dkgshiz  +   1017d ago
The Last Guardian is clearly going to be a PS4 title. Hopefully a launch.
Chucky2003  +   1017d ago
oh wow "freelancer journalist" oh for fuck sake,i knew that they will show the PS4 since the day they invited all the press and send invitations to different important people,i don;t need some dude to tell me that
Relientk77  +   1017d ago
Definitely excitied for Sony's conference, and ready to see the PS4
bashesh  +   1017d ago
I really hope that its available for purchase before the end of April. Keeping my fingers crossed!
