Sony Announcing Something PlayStation Related on February 20th

Yesterday, this announcement teaser hit Sony’s website, teasing an event called the “PlayStation Meeting 2013″, set for 6pm EST on Wednesday, February 20th.

What’s it all about? There’s no official word, but according to The Wall Street Journal, we’ll be seeing the official announcement of the PlayStation 4, currently nicknamed “Orbis”.  According to their sources, not only will this be the unveiling of the new system, it’s not going to be the only new system we see this year, as Microsoft is apparently preparing their Xbox successor – with both systems aiming for a Holiday 2013 release.

Some, including myself, may ask if the video gaming public is frothing with demand for a new system (even if the consoles are roughly seven years old) but regardless, we’ll be seeing something “important” on the 20th.

    Are people FROTHING? I’m sure some are. The limitations on consoles versus their computer counterpart has become brutally obvious. The real truth is that PCs have reached a plateau in the last couple of years that make it not so financially destructive to have a tolerable gaming rig.

    So the question I’ve been patiently waiting to hear answered is what consoles are going to provide me that a PC can’t? Other than some console-only titles, I can’t imagine much…

    Excellent point – but I think that sort of feeling really only effects the hardest of hardcore gamers. Your average Call of Duty fan probably isn’t really pushing for anything all that much better than what they have – the lukewarm reception to the 3DS, Vita and Wii U certainly indicates a certain plateau with the general gamer market, especially as the better selling “consoles” these days are actually within the tablet market, which are greatly underpowered graphically.

    I honestly wonder if, similar to how 4K will probably never take off, if bleeding edge gaming technology is also hitting a wall.

    What can the new systems deliver that the current ones cannot, minus prettier graphics – that’s the big question.
