Sony tries to steal a little of thunder from Microsoft, and we do mean a little bit

If any of you are fans of Mad Men, you are keenly aware that following the conclusion of every new Sunday show, a preview is shown for the following week's episode. There are usually a dozen or so brief video clips of people making "concerned" or "shocked" faces, while uttering a few words that tell you absolutely nothing about the episode.
 
Well, Sony is taking a page from Mad Men's playbook with a new teaser video for the PlayStation 4. The console was first announced way back in late February, but all we were shown at the time was a picture of the controller. We don't get much more today other than a few random shots of the console from varying angles.

 
But we of course see this for what it really is -- a way for Sony to get just a little bit of attention ahead of Microsoft's big Xbox announcement scheduled for tomorrow.
