The lights are on
If you pay attention to the video game blogosphere, you may have witnessed a couple of mysterious YouTube videos floating around from a YouTube channel named "SCELabs." The videos claimed to be leaked teasers for an impending PlayStation 4 announcement. Guess what? They aren't.
Sony hardware PR representative Al de Leon broke it down for us in the simplest way possible: "I can confirm that this video is not from SCE [Sony Computer Entertainment]."
This isn't a huge surprise considering the unlikelihood of Sony introducing a next-generation console right when they're attempting to revitalize the PS3 with the new Move controller. And that's not even mentioning the still-shaky economy, which would make pushing expensive new hardware a bit risky right now.
Some writers had theorized that the "PS4" logo could be a new marketing scheme to push the motion-sensing and 3D capabilities being added to the PlayStation 3, particularly since the latest video seems to focus on 3D gaming, but apparently that is not the case.
I've included the latest SCELabs video below so you can check out what got people so excited. Add this video to the already long and growing list of crazy pre-E3 rumors that have turned out to be false.
It's kind of obvious that a new system would not be pushed out this fast. People just didn't think straight.
That was weird. Really.
Wow, first time I've heard about these rumors. But yeah, I gotta agree with BatmanPrime, it just doesn't make since that Sony would come out with an announcement for PS4 when they are so focused on Move right now, and with the state of the economy of course.
Same goes for Microsoft and Nintendo.
All three companies are too busy trying to capture the market that the Wii introduced with who has the best motion-control games.
I think the next console push will come in a few years, after they've realized that us "core gamers" are completely uninterested in damaging our limbs and living rooms while trying to execute a mid-low-hi kick combo, or some ridiculousness like that.
Ofcourse its a fake. if they would have shown a console then it might have been legit
If this were real, parents would be frightened to buy it for their child.
i could have told you it was fake lol.
Wow. Certainly convincing.
why would they remake mw2 on the ps4
Love that I would be using my new system to play an old game.
Lols. Itd be funny to have the PS2, PS3 and PS4 on the market at the same time.
Sony PS4: Now Starting At $2500!
Like everyone else said it is kind of obvious that this is fake. Given that Sony has been unveiling its information on the PS Move and 3D gaming. In addition to that all the sequels that they already confirmed for the PS 3 (Killzone 3, LittleBig Planet 2, etc) kind of give it away. I mean if Sony was really pushing for a PS4 then it would only make sense to have those titles available on that system in order to boost sales. Also like mentioned above given the whole state of the economy and Sony's trend of releasing rather expensive pieces of hardware I doubt there would be major sales.
so fake...nice idea but fake
Sweet commercial, kinda wish it was real just to see it on TV a few times.
i could of told u they werent comin out wit a new ps console
I thought it was fake. and it is fake. They wouldn't make a new console this fast.
pretty creepy video
