    Sony have launched a new countdown for a big Playstation announcement coming February 20th.

    While the site (available below) doesn't show much outside of a vague teaser video, many sites are speculating that this is the reveal of the next Playstation console. However, this would contradict recent statements that Sony would wait for Microsoft to make the first move when it comes to the next generation of consoles.

    Whatever it is, Sony will be livestreaming the event on February 20th at 6pm EST.

    Maybe it's a vita price cut or something, that'd be pretty big.

    it may just be
    news about what will be happening with the Playstation brand this year

    new games, new hardware bundles(PS3 vita) the other stuff that has to do with the Playstation brand (like the PSN+, SEN)
    as well as
    news on the next major FW update for the PS3, vita as well

    it could be a "Sony Direct"

    Larger memory cards for the PS Vita! I call dibs on those!

    On a serious note, this could very well be something to do with the streaming capabilities or PSN in general. On the other hand, it could just as well be some mayor update for the PS3/Vita. Looking forward to it.

    You mean news directly from the source ? Cutting off the " middle man " and giving news directly to the customers ?
    As in Nintendo Direct ?

    How dare you insinuating that Sony might be ripping off Nintendo on the Nintendo Direct idea, which is arguably one of the best innovative moves in the company's recent history ?

    Don't you know that Sony was working on their Sony Direct idea waaay before Nintendo stole it and made it popular ?
    /sarcasm

    :P

    On a second thought...I bet they will announce that now you will be able to stream PS3 games to the Vita and play it on Vita's screen within your house !!
    It must be something utterly innovative !!

    That sounds vaguely familiar though,but I can't quite put my finger on it yet......... ;)

    It's the PS4.


    Pretty hyped. Just hoping it features backwards compatibility so I don't have to bother getting a PS3.

    They won't give up so easily, trust me.

    If it's not a PS4 it'll be more connectivity options between PS3 / Vita.
    You'll see.

    Remember, I said it first ;)

    I criticize the Vita's performance the most in this forum but even I can say that they're not going to discontinue it so soon.

    That would cause a shit storm with investors and Vita owners.

    The thing is dead worldwide. 3M in one year, it's been tracking lower than dreamcast for many months and that was only based on Japenese DC sales. Lol

    Of course they won't.

    Why announce PS4 now and not on the E3? Has the E3 really lost all the attention?

    Always good to see Nintendo fanboys in these types of threads. :rolleyes:


    I assume it'll either be related to the PS4 or perhaps a pricecut/new redesign of the Vita. Either way its peaked my interest a bit.
