Sony Hints At Playstation Announcement

Sony is gearing for something big and it looks like whatever the PlayStation-themed thing is might come out of the oven Feb. 20.

The company posted on Twitter Thursday to invite us to "see the future," sending the invite to a PlayStation Meeting 2013 website with very few details except the aforementioned date and time of 6 p.m. EST.

Sony is gearing for something big and it looks like whatever the PlayStation-themed thing is might come out of the oven Feb. 20.

The company posted on Twitter Thursday to invite us to "see the future," sending the invite to a PlayStation Meeting 2013 website with very few details except the aforementioned date and time of 6 p.m. EST.

There is also a conceptual video with breathy music and flying triangles, crosses, circles and squares, symbols that should be very familiar to the PlayStation set. There might be a few peeps of some hardware as well, though it's hard to make tell if it's not the siding of the symbols.

Invites to a New York City event that day are also hitting the media circuit, signaling that this probably isn't some minor update to an existing system. Though we won't know for sure until the day of the event, there's a very good chance Sony will be unveiling the PlayStation 4.

The console, reportedly referred to within the company as "Orbis," is said to command an eight-core AMD CPU as well as AMD graphics, with potentially more computing power (though less RAM) than the Xbox 720.

If this is true, a Feb. 20 launch would put the PS4's debut well ahead of E3 in June, ahead of Microsoft's next-gen console.
