Sony pretty much popped out from behind everyone, scaring the shit out of them today, by announcing a surprise press conference for February 20th. They're teasing the future of the PlayStation brand, showing the traditional PlayStation face buttons (cross, circle, square, and triangle), with the date February 20th.
The biggest shocker? Sony is actually keeping their goddamned mouth shut.
Recall back to my Wii U editorial that I published late last year, I called Sony out for their numerous leaks in the past. Just about any piece of hardware (PSPgo comes to mind) or major software (PlayStation Home) is leaked well before Sony's intentional release. They know they fucked up - and was even humble enough to joke about the PSPgo leak during their E3 09 conference - and they're making sure it doesn't happen again.
Some are already pointing out stills from the 45 second teaser, that there may be hidden images of the system itself. Such as the one below, seen at 0:04 in:
Sorry, Polygon, but I'm not seeing it. I see what you're getting at - and it can look like a piece of hardware - but I doubt they're showing it there; watch it in action, and you'll see for yourself.
