(NEW YORK) — Something big is afoot in the world of the Sony PlayStation. In a post on the PlayStation blog entitled “See the Future,” Sony has embedded this video, which teases a “PlayStation Meeting” on Feb. 20.
Industry journalists received an email Thursday touting a 6 p.m. EST event in New York on that date. ABC News Tech will be there at that time, but until then speculation runs rampant. With Nintendo’s introduction of the Wii U last fall and leaked documents pointing to the next Xbox sometime on the horizon, gamers have speculated that this year’s E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) might finally see Playstation 4 or Xbox 720 hardware. Playstation is not ready to reveal its hand yet.
Sony’s suggested hashtag for the event, #PlayStation2013, went into immediate use in the gaming community, with over 3,000 tweets utilizing the tag in just two hours, according to a Topsy.com report.
The Feb. 20 announcement could be the start of the next great console war.
