This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

So why are we assuming that the Feb 20th bit is for PlayStation 4?

I watched the video, and it gave no hint to being a system reveal. Heck it didn't hint at anything. Just show the face buttons and said something about feb. 20th. People are kind of jumping the gun here. Granted I'd be stoked for PS4, but why can't it be something else? Am I missing something here?

Normally I'd say that's reaching, but that was only on screen for less than half a second. But really, what else could they possibly announce about Playstation that needs to be hyped up like this?

That is indeed reaching, that looks more like an "A" since the the left line continues down. I don't think that means anything. I don't know what else would drive up hype, but I do remember them saying they'll let Microsoft go first. I don't think they'd go back on that so easily.

It's just that it would make more sense to release information on their next gen console rather than do anything about the PS3. No point in adding new features to a console that's nearing the end of its cycle.

Because we have only had a Sony PlayStation Meeting two other times: in 2006 and in 2011 when they announced the PS3 and the Vita respectively. PlayStation Meetings have consistently presented new hardware. This is definitely going to be the PS4 guys.

1) Sony saying they would let MS go first so they could change specs later was an obvious lie (because hardware at this point should be finalized and you can't swap out parts without setting yourself back many, many months) and most likely a ploy to try and get MS to announce theirs first for some reason or another.

2) You do not invite your financial investors and the press to an event just to announce a few games. Whatever it is, it's big.

3) Next gen is far overdue, and we've known for some time announcements would be coming either between now and June, or at E3.

4) What else could it be?

The hashtag says playstation2013 and they keep saying we're going to witness the future. It's simple math really.
