Is The PlayStation 4 Going To Be Announced Next Month? New PS4 Rumor

Last night Sony announced that it would be holding a PlayStation event in New York City on February 20, 2013.

As you can imagine fans and geeks alike are excited at this news hoping to see the next generation console officially announced.

There is no verified word from Sony that this event will actually be the announcement the world is waiting for but the Wall Street Journal claims that it’s sources confirm they will introduce the PS4 to the globe in a few weeks from now.

Chances are that it will actually be available for purchase around the winter holiday 2013. It’s speculated that the PS4 will have a bigger focus on social gaming as well as an overhaul on how a user interacts with the console.

Now something that is potentially very interesting is the rumor that the new console would feature GPU switching technology. Sony in fact filed for a patent in 2009 for “dynamic context switching between architecturally distinct graphics processors” and published it near the end of 2010. This is beneficial not only for more horsepower in the graphics department but more importantly according to Sony is the ability to switch in real-time when needed and to reduce power consumption.

I wonder what it will look like? Will it be rounded on the top like the original PS3 did? The curves definitely made it hard to stack other devices on top but definitely had a unique look even if less practical.

  • 21% of worldwide internet users have Twitter in their tool belt, 25% choose Google+ and Facebook has a whopping 51% market share. As a side note YouTube (owned by Google) is also tied with Twitter with 21% share.
  • GlobalWebIndex (GWI) reported that Mark Zuckerberg’s website hasn’t been affected by “Facebook fatigue” and actually had a 33 percent growth margin in contrast with Google+’s 27 percent growth.
  • In October 2012 Facebook announced that it’s membership surpassed 1 billion monthly active subscribers. Google+ claimed to have reached 500 million users and 135 million active members.

In all honesty I’m somewhat surprised. When I first got a hold of G+ I thought it was too bland and wouldn’t ever have a chance against Facebook. Now the latter may still be true for now, Google Plus has definitely carved itself a place at the table and is not interested in sharing dessert.
