Sony has announced that they will be holding a special event February 20 where they will most likely unveil the PlayStation 4.
Last night, a posting went up on PlayStation’s official site that teased the future of PlayStation. It included a link to a site where it was revealed that there will be a special PlayStation Meeting February 20 in New York. At 6pm EST, the meeting will begin and Sony will most likely show the PS4, their next-gen console.
Years of rumors have been leading up to this event. In 2011, the last PlayStation Meeting revealed the PS Vita to the world as Sony’s follow-up to the PSP. Anticipation is extremely high for brand new consoles, a scratch that the newly released Wii U seems unable to itch.
It is widely believed that the PS4 will be built from off-the-shelf computer parts including AMD processors, will contain 8GB of RAM and will possibly have a brand new controller that isn’t a Dualshock. This is a stark contrast to the PS3, which contained the Sony developed Cell Processor and Blu-Ray player. Obviously, the Cell Processor will be dumped, but the Blu-Ray player will remain if these rumors are true. The PS4 and next Xbox are believed to launch this Fall.
Microsoft has yet to announce a date for the reveal of their new console. However, it is heavily believed that they will be holding their own event between now and E3 2013.
