Destination PlayStation event set for next month



Sony Computer Entertainment America is sending out invites to selected industry partners for a closed-doors event in February known as Destination PlayStation, according to a new report.

'Destination PlayStation' is an annual conference hosted by PlayStation's US arm for third-party publishers and a number of retailers, which according to the invite will offer attendees a "first look at amazing new releases from SCEA."

Apparently "Third-party publishers" will also be on-hand to discuss their "plans for 2013."

CVG suggests that Sony could use this event to discuss the PlayStation 4 with partners, although there is no information within the site to confirm that this is definitely the case.

To us it seems unlikely that Sony would discuss the PlayStation 4 with retail at this time given the leaks from previous events of this nature. Instead we'd expect this event to focus on the rest of this year's PlayStation 3 and Vita line-up, with any PS4 discussions taking place once the console has been revealed (either at E3 or in the near future).

i think if they dont get a ps4 out by the time microsoft get their 720 would be a struggle to keep up with it.. i love my psone and ps2 but never interested in the ps3 so i converted to microsoft and i have no regretted it.. i would love to play heavy rain and the uncharted series but thats it.. the only way ill get a ps4 is if they remake the getaway and final fantasy 7 8 9 and 10.. but that would be it else its 720 all the way!

PS4 almost certainly won't be out at the same time as the new Xbox, but at the same time it won't be as far behind in releasing as the PS3 was behind the 360 most likely. Worth keeping in mind as well that not only will the new Xbox not have the one year head start that did so much for the 360 this time around, but they also likely won't have the same significant advantages in pricing and exclusive third party support the 360 had at launch either. It'll be a totally level playing field between MS and Sony for the first time next gen, so I'd fully expect that they'll maintain the current even market share split (More or less) that's currently in place between PS3 and 360 globally between the PS4 and new Xbox as well.

To be honest....since it's constantly doing so poor I can see Microsoft completely dropping Japan or Vice versa this time around. I don't think I've ever seen it sell more than 5000 units a week over the past few years. Probably due to the lack of games and so much support for the Sony and Nintendo consoles make it pointless there.

No doubt there'll be some closed-door stuff for PS4. From what we've heard Nintendo were showing off Behind Closed Doors of Zelda U to entice developers to develop for the Wii U so wouldn't be surprised if Sony aren't doing the same with their console.

I think as this gen has gone on for along time and people have invested time in achievements etc that when the next gen comes out the will just stick with the same brand. I have both a xbox360 and a ps3 which i brought a couple of months ago, when the next gen comes out i believe i will buy an xbox first again.

Being backwards compatible will help ten fold. Sony were ridiculously stupid to do that for the PS3 considering the PS2s library. If they bring it back it may help considering the PS2s age now.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
