Sony released an unusual trailer yesterday advertising a non-specific PlayStation event that will be held on February 20, 2013. The belief is that this is where the company will reveal its next-gen gaming console, a fact that "people familiar with the matter" have confirmed to the Wall Street Journal (via Kotaku).
Those same sources also indicate that the console is due for release later on in 2013. The February 20 event is set to happen in New York City at 6pm ET, less than a week before the company's annual Destination PlayStation event. Expect the usual media circus, but the good news is that you'll be able to watch too; the event will be streamed live.
