Sony offered a teaser video on Twitter

Sony's PlayStation Twitter handle posted a video today that teases the next-generation console, which will be announced February 20, 2013.

The PlayStation Twitter account posted a tweet saying, "See the future," with a link to the teaser video for the new console. It doesn't reveal any images of the hardware or gameplay, but rather a vague collection of shapes related to the PlayStation console and controller.

Check out the video here:

The next-generation PlayStation console, dubbed PlayStation 4, is rumored to have a custom chip based on AMD's A8-3850 with a quad-core 2.9GHz processor and a 1GHz graphics card with 1GB memory. Hiroshi Sakamoto, Sony's vice president of home entertainment, recently said that the company planned an announcement at the E3 gaming event in June, but that an announcement could come earlier. Clearly, the latter is true.

Raising the framerate actually has strong AA properties. It's possible that you actually do care about AA, but prefer the added benefits of high framerate.

It's also possible that you've never seen truly good AA, which is why I use the phrase "next-gen AA." Everything else being equal, including framerate, a game with high-end AA will look unbelievable compared to the alternative. You wouldn't be able to go back. From then on, anything less than ideal anti-aliasing would take you out of the game.

I've never cared about AA. I turn it off on PC, as I'd always like higher resolutions or other effects-would have to be hitting well over 60FPS with everything maxed out on PC before I'd turn on AA.
With PCs it is possible to get higher resolution displays then consoles which have to connect to a TV. All reports that I have read indicate that 2x the resolution is worth more then 4xAA, and allows higher FPS. This is still true with the newer AA systems. Throw on top the fact that PCs can have more GPU RAM, more powerful GPUs, and visual settings above what is possible on a console, and AA starts to be a waste of resources.

I personally never turn on AA on my PC unless I have all the other graphic settings turned up to the highest settings.

That's not completely true, and a narrow understanding of AA. Raising the resolution is "worth more than 4x AA" is a misleading statement because there are several completely different types of AA, and widely different levels of each. Increasing the resolution certainly isn't worth 4x of any high-end AA, or 2x, let alone any next-gen technique, and it does absolutely nothing for temporal aliasing.

Some people also don't seem to realize that "advanced" or "next-gen AA" means advancements in improving the expensive or "wasteful" effects of high-end AA.

"With PCs it is possible to get higher resolution displays then consoles which have to connect to a TV."

You know there are was 720p TV's.. today there are mostly 1080p televisions.. now there are a few TV's with 2160p (aka 4K or Quad-HD) resolutions, wich will be mainstream eventually.

4K is possibly the highest resolution of a single screen avalible both for TV's and Computer Monitors at this time.

Not sure what your point is. Consoles are limited to support TV screen resolutions. While you can get 4k screens and use them on a PC, you cannot get the full benefit with today's consoles. I expect even the next generation of consoles will only support up to 1080p.

Even if the new consoles can support 4k screens PCs can already do that and larger, plus they can combine multiple monitors for even more pixels.
