Sony Teases Likely Next-gen PlayStation Reveal for February 20th

A teaser video with the PlayStation shapes being about as fancy as they can be, is calling on viewers to "See the Future", suggesting that on February 20th 2013 at 6pm EST, Sony will be officially sharing some details on the expected next PlayStation console.

Of course, it could be something else entirely, but given that an assortment of press and Sony investors have also reportedly been invited to a "PlayStation Meeting 2013" event, to be held at the same time, the reveal of Sony's codenamed PlayStation Orbis console seems almost assured. We'll know for sure in just under three weeks time.

If they announce their next console, then what was this supposed to mean?

They can show off a few concept tech demos and perhaps announce a few games without actually committing to the final spec of the console.

At this point in time, with devkit hardware from both manufacturers already in the hands of many third party studios, neither of them can really feasibly change their specs too much, but they could do basic things like add more memory, more drive space etc. Revealing a few things before the other doesn't really change that.

I really have liked the PS3. In the time we have had our fat PS3, we have been through 4 Xbox's which have died.

The only thing I've used my PS3 for since I finished playing Uncharted 3, is to watch blurays. Still glad I've got it, cos theres definitely some great exclusives worth playing on it, and I'm sure it'll get the dust blown off it when The Last of Us comes out, but I'm not really bubbling with excitement over the next Playstation. Guess it all hinges on what games it launches with.

He has been out of the game for a while, that comment was blown way out of proportion. Sony and Microsoft pretty much have their hardware planned out. I think Sony's main concern will be releasing before Xbox.

Doubt it considering there were reports about Rockstar having gone through enough trouble to get the engine working properly on current gen consoles.

Like the suits counting the cash give a s*** about how hard the devs have to work. /cynicism

Not ready for the next gen consoles myself, still enjoying my 360 and plenty of games to catch up on.

I just bought a PS3 so i've got a lot of games to catch up on.

I doubt I'd buy a console at release anyway, I'll wait for prices to drop.

Unlikely to be backwards compatible, the architecture will be completely different to the Cell in the PS3.

Didn't sony say a few weeks ago they'd let MS go first?

Weird.

I hope we get some idea on some games.

someone did a mock-up of what the new controller may look like based on the rumours circulating online.
