Trust us; this isn't up for debate. CVG can guarantee that the next generation home PlayStation console will be announced in New York on Wednesday. Sources that have confirmed this are numerous, increasing by the day, all connected to Sony and absolutely trusted. It's happening.

I predict that they will show The Last Guardian and everyone will their s**t. 6 years later they will do the same thing for the PS5.

It's hilarious how dated the original Last Guardian footage looks now. I remember being so excited at how amazing it looked when they first announced it around the time the PS3 came out.

A real dream announcement for me would be an even more impressive Last Guardian demo and the announcement for Final Fantasy Versus XIII (or XV if the rumours are true). More likely we'll just get the console details and not a whole lot else though.

Quite looking forward to this, think it might just piss on Microsoft.

I hope they're sticking to the XMB interface, rather than the overly-simplistic bubbles from the Vita.

Still, I think my days of getting excited about console releases are over, as I'm firmly back on the PC side of the divide. I'm not sure what they could do that's interesting, hardware-wise; maybe make Move a compulsory part of the console (though they seem to have forgotten Move on the PS3); they already have 3D capability on PS3, and with Vita they can already ape the Wii U's defining concept. Maybe they'll chuck a Vita in the box with every console; that could boost flagging sales.

Or worse, the almostasbadasxbox market interface. Also, ad free, or at least ad free for PS+ users.

I hope the hardware design is more like the xbox though, ie. a boxy home cinema design, not a silly curved surface design. Even if they would make an alternate version that looks exactly like a DVD player, I'd be all over that.

Apparently the following image is a pretty good approximation of what the next PlayStation controller will look like. It will have a two point track-pad on the front and the blue light at the bottom indicates that move technology has been integrated into the controller. Finally the grill is a loudspeaker similar to that of the Wiimote.

It does look like it could do with going on a diet.

Nah, still too small. Needs longer wings and for christ sake switch the dpad and stick. Props on the concave(ish) sticks though. What puzzles me is why not IR light? Why visible spectrum, its ugly. I *hate* lights on stuff.

On the left of the touchpad there's a teeny button - some sites have reported that as a Share button, but there's actually one on both sides, so they're probably Start and Select.
Also, development unit, maybe the proper controller will be a bit slicker.

EDIT: Boop, another angle:

I've read that the "touchpad" is actually a touchscreen. Game-dependant displays, extra interactivity and all that. Might be where the share "button" is?

Share button may be the Playstation Logo thing below the screen.

No backwards compatibility coming in the PS4 in the normal sense, but you will be able to play PS3 games via streaming using the Gaikai technology that Sony purchased last year. No real surprise that Sony are looking to work that technology into their new console and it makes sense that they would use it on something that is not necessary to the console as the tech still isn't quite there.

At this rate we are going to know everything there is to know about the PS4 before the 20th.

These pictures haven't shown the top: I'd like to know if they've improved the L2/R2 buttons.
