shivvy242008d ago

if its not announced i will go drive up a cliff , push my car down the cliff, throw my cat down then ill jump off a cliff !

V0LT2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

I just told them to not announce it. :-P

egidem2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

If they don't announce it in 2 days, Sony would instantly become the biggest troll of the century! XD

Correction: If they don't announce it tomorrow!

Red_Orange_Juice2008d ago

it will be announced ok, enough with the "what if's"

"What if PlayStation 4 is not announced this week?"

You shut your mouth, sir... ...shut it right up.

Septic2007d ago

I'm gonna look like an idiot at work if it isn't announced.

Anyone know what time the reveal is?

The internet will implode with disappointment!

Tr10wn2008d ago

N4G isn't the internet.

badz1492007d ago

N4G is not the only website where people talk about games! You really think other websites will just be doing nothing if there is no PS4 on show tomorrow? There will be an outrage all over the internet for sure

showtimefolks2008d ago

It's ps4 just look at all the playstation classic videos made by Sony for ps1-2-3 and now psp and vita.

It's ps4 and it's gonna be announced on february 24th and if vita's event in Japan is any indication than expect a lot of game reveals.

UBI will be on stage
EA will be on stage
Activision might be on stage to show next gen COD(COD has been dropping in sales this current COD sold 10% less than last so activision will be looking to spark some interest)

Destiny maybe revealed for ps4 with some gameplay but there is a 10% chance of that happening

I hope last guardian is not only shown but it's playable and Sony will say it point blank IT WILL LAUNCH WITH PS4 DAY 1

HITANDRUN2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

Well admirers of sony product like myself will be fine and just laughed. With the same token most of the sony trolls here in N4G SONY LAND will probably insert their fingers were they dont belong, cursed, be outrage, and start a war of integrity. Lets hope sony announced it or the sony trolls will make the apocalipse come early.

yeahokchief2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

Uh.. you can be pretty sure after they post consecutive videos titled PS1, PS2, PS3, PS Handheld on their youtube each day leading up to 2.20 that they're going to announce the PS4 tomorrow. lol if they didn't they'd be the ultimate trolls.

How would i react? I'd be cool with it. Going to be plenty busy with my pS3 this year and i don't like burning money. I don't plan on buying a PS4 until 2014 probably when it gets a price cut. i buy consoles for the games and my ps3 will have plenty this year.

Games that prompted me to pick up my Playstations:
PS1- for Resident Evil 1
PS2- i cant remember. i have so many...
PS3- GTA IV and in anticipation of God of War 3

Now if Sony were to announce something about the PS4 running PS3 games better somehow or if they had a truly killer lineup hidden all this time... Then maybe i'd pick one up in January next year =) Really it all depends on how much of my life i devote to GTA V because im going to play the hell out of that game.

PersonMan2007d ago

Just go out and get God of War 3 right now. Why are you waiting?

hellvaguy2008d ago

I wouldn't be too surprised if they changed their minds on the 20th announcement. I mean afterall, they strung us along believing the ps3 wouldn't be replaced for 10 years.

NeoTribe2008d ago

You got it wrong my friend. They say that they support there consoles for ten years each. Why do you think when ps3 came out they were still supporting ps2 till its tenth year.

GribbleGrunger2008d ago (Edited 2008d ago )

If the PS4 is NOT announced tomorrow then this will go down as the biggest mistake Sony have ever made in the history of Playstation. They've had weeks to deny this and to set the records straight, but not a single word of denial has appeared. It HAS to be.

The PS4 will be announced on the 20th

ArmGunar2008d ago

PS4 will be announced !

The videos of " Evolution of Playstation " aren't here to decorate Internet :P

LOGICWINS2008d ago

If the PS4 isn't announced on the 20th, it would be a disservice to diehard Sony fans. Those videos imply the next step in Playstation gaming is upon us.

As for me, I'm more concerned with Vita and Gaikai.

WeskerChildReborned2008d ago

Lol you're acting as if Sony really did confirm it, they've been on hush but it's not like they are obligated to show it on the 20th, also all of this have basically been rumors. I'm not saying i doubt it will be shown, i'm just saying that even if Sony didn't show it, i wouldn't get mad cause they never promised it or even confirmed anything.

LOGICWINS2008d ago

I never said they "promised" or "confirmed" anything. But they are IMPLYING the next step in Playstation gaming.

Realplaya2008d ago

They will announce Gaikai. it's there evolution.

LOGICWINS2008d ago

"What if PlayStation 4 Is Not Announced this Week?"

Then its not announced this week. Not a big deal. With Ascension, The Last of Us, GTAV, Tomb Raider, Bioshock: Infinite coming out this year, I don't need a PS4 anytime in the near future.

WitWolfy2008d ago

Finally someone who speaks sense!

Tr10wn2008d ago

Amen to that, beside they better keep their word and let MS announce first, that way they keep their word and hopefully make a better console than them, now that i move to PC i really don't care for the 360 or the PS3 i wanna know what's in store for the 720/PS4 to attract the PC Gamers back to consoles.

Lucreto2008d ago

If it is not announced?

The gaming media would be in trouble for hyping up an non event. Article after article from sites like edge and IGN hyping up the PS4.

The media know it is the PS4. I am sure they have all their info packs. These are all articles to hype up and get traffic to their sites and hope you watch from their site on Wednesday.

Gametrailers have different video up each day about the PS4.

LOGICWINS2008d ago

"The gaming media would be in trouble for hyping up an non event."

Ummm no, Sonys in trouble. They've been hyping up the PS4 announcement with those evolution videos.

Lucreto2008d ago

They will I counted 6 articles from IGN. 4 or 5 from Gametrailers and many more froom other sites.

Sony started the fire but the media are fanning the flames.

LOGICWINS2008d ago

"Sony started the fire but the media are fanning the flames."

Ummm yeah, maybe because its their job? I'm not understanding what point your trying to make.

EVERY gaming news site is hyping the PS4(N4G included). THATS how these sites gain popularity and grow. Again, what exactly is your point?

vickers5002008d ago

Sony is also quietly standing over the flames with the biggest extinguisher ever, not doing anything.

If the ps4 doesn't get announced on the 20th, then it will be both the medias and sonys fault. Sony could crush the rumor with a single tweet, yet they have chosen not to, which means one of two things: they are desperate to bring hype and attention to something that isn't the ps4, so much so that they would go on and let people believe a lie (not told by them, but still), OR the ps4 will be announced, which it will be.

Sony would be the biggest trolls ever to not announce the ps4 on the 20th, people would be furious at them for not denying it.

Bathyj2008d ago

I think his point is it doesnt matter how many people scream PS4, Sony themselves have never hyped PS4 or even acknowledged that it exists.

But Vickers is right, its the medias fault (and ours) for running with this ball so wildly, but it would be Sonys fault as well if its not being announced for not saying, hey fellas, your jumping to conclusions.

But I dont think Sonys that dumb, the backlash now would be something they'd never recover from, it would have very real consequences in the real world, like share prices plummeting for example, or just simply losing customers for life. (People seem to hold a grudge around here.)

No, the only sensible explanation is that the 2oth is going to be what we all think it will be. I mean, it has to be, right?
