Reminder: Don't Forget to Watch the PlayStation Event

Where and when to watch!

The day has finally come. Right now, Sony is preparing for a PlayStation announcement in New York City. The company revealed plans for the event on February 1 but kept quiet regarding details of the evening. While many assume it's the introduction of the PlayStation 4, it could just as easily be a PS Vita event, or an event related to PSN and cloud services.

Here's a video teasing the event that Sony put out a couple of weeks back:

    besides what's the big whoop about the PS4 being announced? You know it's coming. It's not like Sony is going to say "Well, the PS3 was pretty successful, We should quit while we're ahead, right guys?"

    Like, no duh they're going to make a new one. What are they afraid of, all those kickstarter linux and android game consoles that retail for 50 bucks? Sheesh.

    GDDR5 system memory? Quasi save states? That sounds very promising.

    Seriously?

    How would this sound to you if someone said the same thing about a new GPU?
    besides what's the big whoop about the GeForce GTX Titan being announced? You know it's coming. It's not like Nvidia is going to say "Well, the GTX 680 was pretty successful, We should quit while we're ahead, right guys?"

    It's news, not a sponsored ad.

    This system could be a winner if everything they say works good as intended.
    So far, can't tell if the graphics are a win since the live stream is at a lower quality, but meh.

    Ok, now the streaming started working (took more than 20min to start here, sux).

    The live broadcast spent all the time so far talking about the social stuff and online improvements - so if you're into online gaming you're going to get a lot of love. The 5 people who bought PS-Vita's will get cool features like being able to switch games between the two on the fly. Now they're showing a demo of a generic military fps... looks good but military shooters are played out for me. Next something called Driveclub... group racing. Clearly they're pushing the social thing, and still I've not heard much about performance. I think maybe the 'social gaming' phenomena has them thinking that performance isn't as important as online features. Maybe they're right, but I don't think the PS4 is going to have much to offer me based on what they're focusing on in the rollout.

    The big difference is that for the announcement of a new series of video cards, people actually care about the specs. All that console gamers care about is when it's out and how much it costs. The really hardcore ones might care about how much RAM it has, because every console fanboy knows RAM is what makes games go fast.

    Found the spec's online... not much detail but doesn't look too bad.

    For something this built up, anything besides a PS4 reveal would be a big disappointment.

    Too bad the stream lags so much, that I can hardly make out anything from these pretty(assumption) tech-demos.

    PC Gamers should be happy, it is x86 based console with 8gb of DDR5 ram.

    Hopefully the quality of PC titles will be lifted due to the architecture closely resembling a PC.
