If a video released earlier today is any indication, the official PlayStation Blog and Sony are ready to start hyping the reveal of PlayStation 4 on February 20.
The video, titled "Evolution of PlayStation: The Beginning," plays like a documentary and talks at length about the development and release of the original PlayStation. Social Media Manager Sid Shuman had this to say on the console that started it all:
"PlayStation’s arrival to the world of gaming signaled a change in the status quo and a sign of things to come. The original PlayStation system emerged in 1994 in Japan as a dark horse challenger, a seemingly outgunned newcomer entering a crowded field dominated by legends of the 16-bit era. PlayStation’s advanced technology and innovative controller design won raves with critics and gamers, and in 1995, the system expanded to North America, Europe, and Australia. Accompanied by a powerful salvo of titles including WipEout, Crash Bandicoot, and Gran Turismo, PlayStation’s rapid rise marked the end of one era of videogames and the dawn of another. The world was never the same."
The blog post ends by inviting readers to visit PlayStation's YouTube page in the coming days as the evolution of PlayStation is further explored leading up to next week's PlayStation Meeting, where the world will witness the next evolution of PlayStation.

Man, a lot of those commercials take me back, I really miss those days. Gaming was a lot more exciting back then, than what it is now. =(

Man, if only Crash could be making more trash talking commercials these days. Those were some funny commericals, as well as the Parappa the Rapper commercials.

Seriously? Am I really the only one here who could wait another 6 to 8 months? I still have 2 dozen PS3 games I haven't beaten yet not even counting the ones I havent bought yet. Not to mention that they're potentially about to release something that might not only be super expensive but also possibly change gaming in a bad way with further reliance on motion gaming and more attempts to reduce the value of your purchases with more invassive digital media content. Frankly I'm more fearfull of what'll reveal on the 20th than excited, and I supported Sony from Day One.
