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.
