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.

I agree, and that was a big part of why I got a PS3 over Xbox 360... But I am seriously doubting that it will be free with the PS4. MS cleaned up with Xbox live gold. 10 million users @ $5 a month is $600 Million a year for. I don't think they will be giving it away free again.

It would have the opposite effect if Sony addressed the perception problem. If they could fix these really simple things, the cost of XBL Gold would suddenly become a liability. Microsoft is probably going to really entrench themselves in it this time too, so Sony has a real single-point-of-failure Death-Star-thermal-exhaust weakness to destroy MS with.

Until last month Sony's interface was braindead. That's six years. They never had cross-game chat. Six years. No headset. Six years. The 360 also had The Promise of Halo, which is no longer what it used to be.

And the 360 controller is better.

Wow lol, on second thought I don't really trust Sony to out-think MS at all on this. They really are a bunch of dumb stupid idiots.

LOL... Ya, after thinking about that comment, its a toss up. Both MS and Sony have the potential to make serious idiotic decisions. Both have demonstrated that skill many many times over.

After the PS3 came out, Sony's CEO was all over talking about the poor quality of the company's internal communication; the Marketing guys making hardware promises that the Hardware guys never heard about, things like that.

Well, that an the XBox360 had a >50% failure rate. :D

But many of us are still anti-Sony: root kits, removing Linux capability, no backwards compatibility & having their Credit Card site hacked.

Sony blows. The RLOD/YLOD never got the same media attention as the RROD.
Both were fatal flaws based on improper cooling.
Cant wait to see the failure rates of the PS4 and XBOX 720.
