I wonder if they will show the console

Could be possible!

I would piss myself if they changed it to May 22nd
Blacktric  +   1016d ago
In Brazil? No way. They always choose big events OR big cities in NA (or Europe if it's an event) to do these types of big reveals. What significance does Brazil have? Sales aren't that good enough in there to warrant a PS4 world exclusive reveal when they got LA or NY already.

Not to mention the ridiculous prices, they charge for consoles and games in brazil.
Ozmoses  +   1015d ago
I understand where you're coming from.. But, Brazil is pretty big... I mean São Paulo is the biggest city...

It is also one of the few countries still with dual citizenship.

That probably doesn't answer any questions...

But, just because the major city isn't in
America. doesn't really mean anything...

gaming is global and has been for awhile now...

any company that would limit themselves to one country would be stupid...

also it could be something like the Playstation College Tour here in the US... they could just be doing stuff for other countries also.

The console? I wonder if they'll have popozudas on stage.

Yep, outerspace is very credible in Brazil.

one thing PC has...
that i think would give a lot of gamer longer life spans on consoles is mods. They messed around with it with Unreal Tournament 3. I really want them to incorporate mods back into gaming.

I loved pitting characters from Nintendo, SEGA, Sony and Microsoft against each other in Unreal Tournament 3.

Gameplay mods
Weapon mods
Cusom levels

All on my PS3

I think I'll play some UT3 & LBP2 now...
Kennytaur  +   1016d ago
Let's be honest, some mods are great, but most are crap. It would probably help on Bethesda games though... But someone would likely have to control and approve them to avoid any cheating and game-breaking affairs, and no one wants to do that.
Muerte2494  +   1016d ago
@ KingPoS
thank you for getting what i was saying. Sony introduce bringing PC mods to consoles with Unreal Tournament 3. I know people remember the Spartan Master Chief Skin mod on PS3. It was a feature that xbox360, to my understanding, couldn't match. Whoever thinks giving a game more longevity using mods is a bad thing, is insane IMO. How can getting more bang for your buck be a bad thing?
For those who didn't know

Yeah that UT3 was fun. Bullet time & 3rd person were two of my favorite mods.

All those mods gave the game some long legs. Even last night there were people are still on UT3. I wish devs were more open like this again.

Blasting folks with Samus on UT3 since 2009.

I would imaging they are going to show the console at this or another similar event to prevent MS from being able to make any jokes about them not showing it during their reveal. I feel like Sony isn't going to give Microsoft an inch of room to attack them on this one.
Crazyglues  +   1015d ago
Wow right before MS's big date... talk about stealing the thunder???

Sony is not playing around this time... Can't wait

An event on Brazil? Like... 60k feet up in the stratosphere? Or, perhaps, on the ground IN Brazil?

I want to take a trip on Brazil! When I get there, I'll have some hot peppers in my pizza.

Dlacy13g  +   1016d ago
interesting choice of location. Curious to see if anything comes of this or if its just a re-hash of their last even but focused on Latin America?

Soldierone  +   1016d ago
It'll probably be something similar to what they already did. I've read several times they want gaming to expand there.

I highly doubt they go to Brazil to showcase something major like the console reveal. Their three major markets are NA, UK, and Japan. The reveal should be in one of those areas.
delicia  +   1016d ago
Probably that, hopefully a price reduction on PS3 games and stuff.
Hellsvacancy  +   1016d ago
Awesome, my birthday is May 7th, id rather The Last Of Us was released, oh well
Shadowsteal  +   1016d ago
What does your birthday have to do with any of this dude. Completely irrelevant to any of this to the max.
MestreRothN4G  +   1016d ago
3rd biggest gaming market in the world.
JAM_brz  +   1016d ago
Yes, finally the industry is giving us the propper attention. Thanks Sony.

Today, Brazil is a country in extreme ascencion in the game market. And Sony is seeing this. You guys can't expect a reveal of the console. But more infos about the PS4 and some more game footages. And of course, Sony probably will say that the PS4 will launch in Brazil too, almost in the same date compared to other countries. Something that never happened in the past with the PS1, PS2 and PS3.

By the way, I'm brazilian. Anyone noticed? ;-)

Orgulho de ser brasileiro!!!
Cryptcuzz  +   1016d ago
I hope you're right, I would love to see more game play footage of PS4 games no matter where the event may be.

I knew you were Brazilian right when I started reading your comment :) I'm not Brazilian but from the US and I truly hope the PS4 would be released in Brazil at the same time, if not close to when all other major regions do.

I'd love it if Sony would be able to produce that much to ship worldwide, simply because I want the install base to increase as fast as possible. That way, more games would be made and support will ramp up for the PS4 quickly.
JAM_brz  +   1015d ago
Yeah man, I mean, the more PS4 owners the more gamers online too. If they launch the PS4 here very soon, but for a fair price, I tell you we can expect good sales.

I have some USA friends on PSN. It's good to have friends from others countries than just Brazil. The games have provided us this thing.
extermin8or  +   1016d ago
It's not going to be anything really new, sounds like it's targeted specifically at brazil- i mean read what the description for the even says...
StrawHatPatriot  +   1016d ago
I'm happy about this. I like everyone in the world being able to experience the same things that US people have.

To bad an always online XBOX by Micro$oft won't do the same -_-
Themba76  +   1016d ago
actually this is pretty smart actually they are jumping the gun by 10 years but it's still smart. look countries like Brazil,China and India are the future. North America and Europe are on the decline financially. Im an American here and Iv'e been noticing a steady decline over the last 20 years in North America and Europe part of the reason is we don't manufacture anything anymore. those so called 3rd world countries make everything now especially China. Brazil is a country full of naturale reasources they just lack the transportation for their supplies but they are abundant in cheap labore and resources. for example when you go to lets say whole foods or any place that specializes in organic food your gonna pay an arm and a leg for it just to eat healthy where as in Brazil. you can go outside your house and pick a coconut off the tree. I know this because Iv'e been there.not to mention they got some of the most beautiful women in the world. I see why alot of europeans go there to get married.

You made my day, I felt like a monkey for been a brazilian now... like Tarzan... hahaha... just joking

But Brazil its really a such beautiful and blessed country. Violence and corrupted politicians we have all around the world (even knowing here we got more of that).

And our womans really are THE womans...
Themba76  +   1016d ago
what I meant by that is how healthy food there is so cheap where as here you have to pay a fortune for healthy food but yet mcdonalds and pizza hut are cheap. oh and i did get a coconut off the tree down there it was near copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro although my favorite beach down there
was flamingo. it was filled with women in thongs.

Jo soy Bracilero! Jo gusta tacos e burritos cueno caipirina e samba!

Senoritas con grandis culos a bailar samba!

Yes, I´m brazilian... some people around the world thinks we are some kind of native mexicans or something and portuguese is some kind of spanish. Funny. I gotta say.

But no, it won´t be any new stuff to be announced here, unfortunately. Since when Bracil has great coverage rate when it´s about electronic stuff???

Se fosse anunciar uma filial de tacos e burritos, aí sim... bom, vou esperar até o PS4 Slim... antes disso, nada vale muito apena ficar acompanhando. Jo need tacotaco

astar123456789  +   1015d ago
i think they want to make the ps3/ps4 in brazil, electronics are way to much, so if the make them in brazil it will make them cheaper and more people will buy them.
commander  +   1015d ago
waste of time on such a poor country. At most brazil ppl could barely afford a ds4 let alone a ps4.
delicia  +   1015d ago
You are clearly dumb.
Thatmattkid  +   1015d ago
It could just be something to do with Sony and the Olympics in Rio 2016 (probably official sponsors etc)
Shacojin  +   1015d ago
Brazil is kind of popular these days, people don't forget they are hosting the World Cup 2014 and the Olympics 2016... pretty big stuff.
