Watch PlayStation 4 Announcement with GH

Playstation Event
The day is finally upon us! Destination PlayStation is coming later tonight in the form of a live streamed press conference. Make sure to tune in on this post, and the video below, to watch the PlayStation 4 event live. The live PlayStation event is set to launch at 3PM Pacific, 5PM Central and 6PM Eastern time. Make sure to bookmark this page and hit play as soon as the clock hits PlayStation time!

We will be hanging around in the comments of this post during the event and chatting with people live. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to hear your first reactions to all of the amazing news that is bound to come out of the conference. Leading up to the conference, make sure to post some predictions below! In the meantime, you can also look at a few of our predictions in the comments section and comment on whether or not you think they will come true.

What could come out of this year’s PlayStation Event? The sky is really the limit. The gaming press has seen a particular pattern that Sony seems to do with these conferences. Practically on the same day years ago the PlayStation 3 was announced a year before the launch date at a similar event. There also was a similar event for the announcement of the NGP which turned out to be the PlayStation Vita in later conferences. No one really has any hard data on exactly what is going to be shown other than it will be the “future of PlayStation.”

Update 3:00AM:
There have been two leaked images that seem to be somewhat legit. We will keep updating this post with any more rumors that come to light before the conference.

Update 4:20AM:
IGN posted this photo originally posted on Digital Foundry (no link provided) of a prototype PlayStation 4 controller. The photo looks surprisingly similar to the same rumor photo that has been rolling around for the past few days.

Update 3:15PM:
In a weird pop up the site http://thephantompain.com/ has posted an interesting picture on it. You will notice if you tilt your monitor, or look from a different angle, that the words PAIN, LUMIS and PORTION are different colors then the rest of the letters. There also is a 2:20 at the end of the post that makes us think it has something to do with the PlayStation Conference.

Make sure to also check out the site after the announcements are made. We will try our best to cover all of the crazy news that is coming out of the rumored live PlayStation 4 event stream.

    I still don’t think they are going to show anything other then MAYBE the controller for the PS4

  • CaptainCamper

    There’s no way they’ve spent all the money on hype just to reveal an already leaked controller. They occupied an entire side of the Champions League match.

    My prediction:

    They will announce the PS4, may just use a trailer rather than actually show it live.
    2-3 launch titles announced
    Information regarding an upcoming date for a full reveal

    • RyanHeroing

      I still think they won’t announce it

    • JohnnyHurricane

      2-3 launch titles? They better be bringing more than that to the table.

      • RyanHeroing

        Ya I’m thinking if they want to really wow us, they are going to have to show pretty much a butt ton of content available.

    I’m with captain camper on this one. They would be shooting themselves in the foot if they only show a controller. All this hype for what a controller. Especially when you have Nintendo releasing big news constantly at the moment.

    • RyanHeroing

      True, but I still feel like a lot of the hype was actually given to the event by press and fans and not actually by Sony themselves.

      • Alex Elkins

        but thats what happens when you announce you are doing something like this. Regardless of if you hype it or not, when your console is due out in the not to distant future and you state you’re doing an announcement people are going to say its the PS4 straight away, if it wasn’t then they would have said something and not advertised it so much. If it isn’t about the ps4 then a lot of people are going to be so pissed.

    I think they’ll be teasing the controller and little else. It’ll be a lot of hype and nothing more.

    However, I think they’ll be pulling out some big guns in the software department. I think Kojima will make an appearance, and talk about Ground Zeroes/The Phantom Pain. I also think The Last Guardian will have a new trailer.

    And this is out of left field, but I think a trailer for Persona 5 will be shown at the very end.
