** The Console itself
** Specs
** What Ps4 will feature. All from Online services to the social stuff from what we heard from rumors.

** Games and etc will probably be saved for E3

It'd be dumb to start all this hype and not show off at a least one game

Sony will bring several games because they know you do not get a second chance to make a first impression.

Battlefield 4, Guerilla's non-Killzone IP, Destiny on the PS4, GT6, Planetside 2 for PS4, Eve Online for PS4, Dust 514, Beyond Two SOuls for PS4, Deep Silver's Ride to Hell for PS4 (an exclusive), GTA5 for PS4 (The main reason for the delay).

Backwards conmpatibility will be announced for the PS4 as well. Not in the way we understand it but through Gaikai. If you own the digital version of a PS3 title you can stream it through the PS4.

If you own the disc version you will be able to stream the game once you insert the PS3 disc and the disc is verified by the PS4. The disc will have to stay in the PS4 as long as you are streaming the game.

We'll see a slight price drop for the Ps3 and Vita as well as a few new Vita games including Phantom Pain for the Vita. They will also detail the new Vita/PS4 functionality (full control of PS4 from Vita as well as streaming Vita games through the PS4 to the big screen).

I imagine:

Services (social, online, paid and free)
Some sort of innovative nuance/function (move integration)
The "engine" or buzzword for the system's internal (a la EE, Cell BE), no hard specs, just some theoretical performance numbers
Tech demos, one or two interactive
Small demo reel of possible games (possibly including 1313, Watchdogs, Agni's etc.)

If it's anything like the PS2 announcement, I doubt we'll see much in the way of games or any sort of live gameplay, mostly tech demos to make the machine look good on paper. I very much doubt we'll get a spec sheet, just the name of the platform that drives it.

Games will be down, I'm betting the house.

Yea I expect to see the following

1. The Ps4 itself
2. Specs
3. Features

and the best one of all

This is what will really annoy me again as it has happened with every console since the PS2 !!!!

I think all of the companies could benefit from supply chain management 101.

I always hate seeing and reading what these general news outlets say and write about gaming news.

Ahhhh not again these silly "expect" articles!

We don't care what you so called "experts" say about what u expect, cause u are always wrong. CNN Now get back to what u do the best lying to the public with your brainwashing news....

Console, games, hopefully price maybe date. Of course I expect giant enemy crabs too.

But tiny tiny part of me hopes there is no announcement because all the fanboys just jumped on the hype train without thinking.
