Well Boys and girls, we are just a few hours away from being completely awed or completely pissed off.  I’m holding onto the former.

Sony has been releasing a few short documentary videos which highlight the Playstation’s humble beginnings to the power house it is today.  Although short, it is very interesting and don’t be afraid to let these videos hype you up for the big announcement.

Today’s video highlights the success of critically acclaimed original games that pushed the boundaries of Playstation and set the bar level for future IP’s to follow.  After watching the video i personally thought they left a few games that at least deserved to be mentioned like, Uncharted but then i thought while Uncharted was fantastic it wasn’t original.  The games that were showcased in this video were innovative and not the norm especially the Unfinished Swan and Journey.  Not forgetting Shadow Of Colossus which really tugged at heart strings.  Enjoy!

In case you forget you can tune into IGN at 14:00 pacific time or00:00 GMT,  one hour before the event to discuss what might be coming where they’ll have an open live stream so that the folks who can’t get to New York will be able to catch the news as it happens.   At 15:00 pacific time or 01:00 GMT the event begins.  Buckle up people, it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

The fourth installment of Sony‘s Evolution of Playstation is here.  It documents the success of PSP and the growing success of PS Vita.  Having only acquired a PSP recently, i must admit, the PSP hasn’t exactly blown my hair back but i guess I picked it up to late to really marvel at it during the PS2 saga.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my PSP.  I have a range of titles that I am able to play and it helps pass the time when I’m out and about.  Without it I would probably go stir crazy but i would eventually get over it.

Tomorrow the PS4 is set to be announced in New York and so far all these videos have tickled drool mode and have built up major hype.  I for one cannot wait to see the event.

For those of us in South Africa, we can catch the event thanks to IGN with  live streaming that’s supposed to start an hour before the conference.    By what i worked out we should be able to tune in to IGN hopefully at 00:00 am on Thursday 21st 2013.  Holding thumbs!

Sony has released another video commemorating the marvel that still is PS3.  Watching these videos puts a big smile on my face and I can’t help but be seriously impressed by all that Sony has accomplished.

I have only had my PS3 for two years but it has given me so much and my life would be completely empty without it.  It is the one and only piece of equipment that i truly have feelings for and it’s always there for me in my time of need.  Late at night i can hear her crying for me to put her on, insert a game and transport me to fantastic worlds and new characters.  That’s what I love about my PS3.  She never says no, and is always willing to please me.  The best part of her is that she wants to do these things for me and i could never repay that kind of love.

We are just two days away from the grand unveiling. 🙂

Are you excited yet?

We are three days away from the big announcement and in preparation for Sony’s probable reveal of the PS4 on 20 February 2013, Sony has released a two part, two minute each documentary titled  The Evolution of  Playstation.  The first video highlights the success of the original Playstation now known as the PSone.  The second video showcases the accomplishments of the PS2 and they will more than likely release a third video which will commemorate the PS3.

As things always do and as time moves slowly to the reveal date a few bits and pieces of information always manage to get released so that people can get pumped up for the reveal.  Most notably is the prototype of the PS4 controller which features the standard square, triangle. circle and X button.  The PS button in the center of the controller, dual analog sticks which seem to be spaced further apart and the traditional shoulder buttons.  New features of the controller are a speaker, plug in audio jack for headsets, a “mystery” button to the top right of the D-Pad and a “glowing  “something” on the top of the controller – most likely PlayStation Move-related”
