Sony Feb 20th announcement

Sony has streamed a video which showed nothing but the four signature PlayStation buttons being electrified, but what makes gamers ecstatic about it is that at the end of the video, the console giant has revealed that it will announce something big on February 20.

So what will be revealed on the 20th? According to the sources of The Wall Street Journal, Sony will talk about its next-gen console on the PlayStation 2013 press event. The upcoming gaming platform will be battling head-on with its competitor, Microsoft’s Xbox, in the latter of 2013.

PlayStation’s manufacturer previously considered the removal of the system disc drive in the effort to create a fully-digital console. However, the plan did not push through because of the issues on slow internet access and file size.

The new system will integrate social gaming features. Furthermore, Sony will be more focused on changes in user-machine interaction rather than hardware enhancements.

The press event happens in less than three weeks. Are you excited?
