Sony is hosting a "PlayStation Meeting" event in New York City shortly, and it's so widely expected to be the announcement of their new PlayStation console that the Internet would likely implode if it didn't come to pass.

The event kicks off officially at 6:00pm US Eastern time on February 20th 2013, which works out to 10am Thursday morning for Sydney and Melbourne, and 9am in Brisbane.

PlayStation Australia has let us know that you can hurl your email address into this page to "be the first to know all the latest news", but we suspect any live streams from the various media coverage will still pre-empt any of that.

It's also very likely that Sony will have a live stream of the event happening themselves, which should appear on PlayStation's official Ustream channel, as it notes "Upcoming Shows - Playstation Meeting 2013 Thursday at 8:30am".

And the cycle starts again..in a few years time we'll all be cursing the PS4 because of constraints and how it holds back gaming

I can't wait for a whole new round of XBox vs Playstation vs PC arguments and a whole new generation of angsty fanboys.

I really hope it's not the PS4 announcement. It would be funny to see the internet's reaction.

I'd be curious to know what, now that there's a decent "future" precedent set, you'd like to see in any future consoles. There's a tonne of great technology and awesome applications/ideas on the horizon - what would you like implemented in the next generation?

Option for a track ball in place of the right analog stick, for smooth camera control. (Would need to be a certification requirement that all games support such a feature.)

That would be brilliant, the 'push the camera around' concept of first person view control with console controllers is the thing that bugs me the most.

I'd like to see new hardware so we can hopefully have a jump in the quality of multi-platforms. I'm also interested in games, lots of games.

Holy crap, they finally get it: Free to play, and pay only for games you love.
Too bad it's not for everything though :(

hehe remote play with the vita.
Raven
Posted 10:40am 21/2/13
Remote play on the Vita looked good - finally a reason to justify Vita's existence.

Looks like PS4 ain't backwards compatible with PS3, so don't throw away your 3 just yet.

Heh, Killzone looks like typical console fps, aiming like a gumby

I am not being fooled by pre launch killzone footage, last time it was all a sham! Did look pretty sweet though.

i hope they show something from naughty dog
Raven

Killzone grapics were freaking amazing, but it really made me think "sigh, another console FPS with a gun pointed at the middle of the screeen". Would love to see Tribes on that kind of graphics engine though.

This s*** is so unimpressive.

Hopefully it will get better when they start showing more services and games, rather than tech demos and empty shells.

Damo
Posted 12:05pm 21/2/13
Did they show what the console even looks like or just the controller?
ravn0s
Posted 12:05pm 21/2/13
just the controller :/
Khel
Posted 12:12pm 21/2/13
Watchdogs looks awesome, but I can't help but wonder if it'll really play as well as that when we get it in our hands and its not a staged demo.
