    Sony has revealed a whole lot about their upcoming Playstation 4, from the look of the machine to its controller to the price and final specs. However, one mystery lingers on: When exactly is it being released?

    Well, don't worry, now we know... when we'll know.

    :arrow: Sony

    That's right, all will be revealed on Tuesday, August 20th (10 AM PST/1 PM ET), so mark your calendars... assuming calendars are still a thing people have nowadays. And people actively care that much, and won't just find out later at their own convenience. And that this isn't all just a tad bit silly.

    TL;DR: It was a slow news day, folks.

    Not surprised.

    But even then, I really think with games like Last of Us.. I don't see the point in a new console generation just yet. Xbox 360? Yeah, I can see. But PS3? I believe there's still so much untapped potential. But even then, I like that they'll be talking about PS3. Though it's probably just stuff they spoke about at E3. PS3 still has a good number of years left in it.

    The PS2 was just retired In January of this year but still they will make some games for it like FIFA 14. PS3 will probably be done somewhere between 2018 and 2020. Same for 360.

    I don't like the design of the PS4 one bit. Will wait for a PS4 Slim.

    Honestly, the PS4 isn't all that big. It doesn't look any bigger than the PS3 slim, actually. Having the built in power supply makes it difficult to downsize the console by much.

    Edit: Yeah, they're pretty much the same size. Picture spoilered below.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It looks a bit better standing up hopefully the stand comes with it, doubtful

    That photo is misleading slightly, watch this vid of an exclusive PS4 unboxing and skip to 2:30



    a stand does come with it but would be better to lay it flat. watch the video above.

    The picture actually isn't misleading at all. The angle isn't perfect, but you can tell that sans stand, the PS4 would clearly be shorter on its side than the PS3. That video does give a better perspective on it though, which further solidifies that anybody waiting for a smaller iteration of the PS4 will probably be waiting a very, very long time.

    Oh man, I am sorry :ohnoes:

    When I posted that, it was actually an Inception button that made the "BWOONNNGGG" sound whenever you pressed it.

    I Googled "Inception button" and it was the first result. I originally wanted to embed it so I clicked "view source" on that site and found the .swf and linked it above. I guess it was a trap :unsure:

    Nah, it was their hotlink protection. Visiting the link without a referral URL pulls up the original button.
