PS4 Announcement Closing In

A Sony press conference scheduled for February 25th could be the launch platform for PS4, one online report has claimed. Several claims have surface that seem to have word that Sony will use the Destination PlayStation event “to formally unveil its next-generation PlayStation 4 console for the first time, showing off pre-release hardware ahead of an expected 2014 launch”.

'Destination PlayStation' is an annual conference hosted by PlayStation's US arm for third-party publishers and a number of retailers. In an invite notice, the two-day event is said to provide a "first look at amazing new releases from SCEA".

It's obvious that the early reveal is intended to dampen enthusiasm for the Xbox 720, which it believes Microsoft WILL launch by the end of 2013 as Microsoft last week revealed a countdown to E3 in June, suggesting that it has pegged the LA showcase for its Next Xbox reveal. That, or General Nelson is extremely excited for E3.
