Sony Counting Down to Major Announcement

Sony CE logoSony has left hints on social media and set up a dedicated website counting down to a special announcement on 20th February 2013. Some media outlets believe it to be the first official announcement of its next generation hardware- the PlayStation 4.

Keeping things cryptic Sony’s President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment, Shuhei Yoshida put a post on twitter regarding the announcement as a simple “?!” He then followed up with a link to the PlayStation Blog that contained a cryptic video, entitled “See the Future”

MCV UK online editor Ben Parfitt was one source to jump on the cryptic news as suggesting the possible announcement of the Sony PlayStation 4, stating in an online post that “Sony has dropped a big hint that a PlayStation 4 reveal could be less than three weeks away.” Could this be the announcement we’ve been waiting for?

I recently mentioned in a feature in the latest Geek Syndicate magazine that we are likely to expect the announcements of the next generation of home games consoles from the last two of the major three companies. Nintendo released its Wii U late last year and the product life cycles of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are well into their twilight years, and development on their latest core videogame tech has been rumoured for quite some time.

The announcement on 20th February 2013 is scheduled to take place at 6PM EST.
