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.
Maybe this has something more to do with Sony promoting the 3D upgrade coming to the PS3 then anything else. After all, MW2 is one of the games that will be in Stereoscopic 3D. Also, Sony only denied it was "not from SCE". Of course not, wouldn't it be from a marketing agency?
That's if this was real and all. ;)
got to admit, these *** did a pretty good job
that's such a stupid video.
Haha... I unfortunately got to it after the user cut his losses and filed copyright. Sad how little common sense some people have when it comes to things like this... this would be the oddest time to create a new console (especially considering those absolutely preposterous PSP2 "leaks"
Who would think that a new console would come out after a couple of years of production and you could tell its fake by our technology and the economy sufferings
Given Sony's obvious intentions to support the PS3 for at least 3 more years, it may not be too early to begin testing the PS4, but it's certainly too early for viral videos about it.
hahaha nice 3D experience for him haha
Oh wow that video is old as my Grandma!
