Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on Feb 20, 2013 // Senior Manager, Social Media

UPDATE: The event in its entirety is now available to watch, right above this sentence. Relive the introduction of PlayStation 4, or experience it for the first time.

PlayStation Meeting 2013: it’s finally (almost) here! The festivities begin today, Wednesday February 20th starting at 6:00pm Eastern Time (3:00pm Pacific Time)… and you’ll be able to watch live right here from this humble PlayStation.Blog post. Set those bookmarks and timers!

If you simply must leave the warm, soothing embrace of PlayStation.Blog, you’ll also be able to follow along live on PlayStation.com, inside the virtual world of PlayStation Home, and even via your PS3’s Xross Media Bar — just look for it under the “What’s New” section.

If your busy, busy life can’t find time for a live video stream, then be sure to follow our livetweeting fun on Twitter where you can join the conversation using #playstation2013. We’ll be dropping a few key updates on Facebook and Google+, too, for those so inclined.

Please follow along starting at 6:00pm Eastern Time and share your thoughts in the comments below. And then come back to the Blog after the show’s conclusion for a full wrap-up of all the announcements. Enjoy with our compliments!

What do you mean ”via your PS3’s Xross Media Bar”? Can watch live it directly on my ps3?

Better not have amazing features one year then take them away a year later.

Eventually there won’t be backward compatibility (at least no with all previous consoles), but this time around you owe us FULL backward Comp. After failing with PS2 on PS3.

I’ve never thrown/traded in a system, all the way back to my Atari 2600. If I want to play old PS games, I’ll play them on their native systems, which will be sitting within arms reach of my PS4, anyway. Forget backwards compatibility, it will do nothing but drive up the price on the new system.

All I can say is that if really the PS Orbis is announced today I hope it will be released in Spring 2014 or Fall 2014. I highly doubt if the new console was shown today a price would be revealed most likely that would be a E3 announcement. The PS3 is going strong in my eyes and with games like Beyond two souls, The last Guardian and The last of us things should be fine for PS3 owners.

I checked out some of the video from the “what’s new” section, which leads to a web link… and the streaming quality is pretty bad (particularly when compared to something like Netflix). I have a 50mbps internet connection and yet it seems to be in SD quality.
Is there any way to change the quality of the video stream?

I’ll try Home next and see if the quality is better, but just wanted to mention this as it doesn’t make a very good first impression, particularly given the high quality of other video streams like Netflix.

Here’s crossing fingers for the return of OtherOS functionality. Just kidding.

@XFRod: Not everyone is a system hoarder like you ;) Seriously though, I’d like fewer bulky things in my small studio apartment, so backwards compatibility would be a huge plus.

Where in Home can this be watched… I haven’t used Home in eons. Is it the Theater section? You might be a bit more specific in your blog post….

@57 saab01

so what? I mean even if it launch before it will not stop you for enjoying your ps3. Many ps3 owners are ready to switch to next gen… follow the evolution

Can’t wait to hear and see the news.

Wanted to advise anyone in Canada with a PS Vita as well, Best Buy is selling the 32 GB memory card this week for 79.99 instead of 99.99.

Also is it naive expecting the Vita getting a tiny bit of spotlight in this event?

Looking forward to this one. I “hope” it’s the announcement for PS4, but you never can be too sure. I’ll definitely watch it live at 6pm.

Thanks!

+ Wartech on February 20th, 2013 at 8:57 am said:

I tnink there should be different versions each with a different level of backwards compatibility.
Elite with PS1, PS2, PS3.
Advance with PS2, and PS3
Standard with just PS3
and a Basic model with no b/c except for PSN digital download.

A Vita card port for games without cross play
phone pairing so you can get and makecall with headset while playing
Vita intergration
Highly personalizing start screen. That includes fonts, font color, font size, photos as avatars, start music sampled from our library,
bookmark icons for direct web page access
Move included
Superior graphics and sound

I wish this was happening either an hour earlier or an hour later. 6 Eastern is 5 CST and that’s right when I leave work and have to catch the bus. I won’t get home till about 6pm here. The last hour at work is usually pretty dead, and if it were an hour later I could just catch it at home (maybe miss the first few minutes or so). Oh well, I’m sure that it will be recorded so that I can just watch it later.

+ wokeupinapanic on February 20th, 2013 at 9:06 am said:

Curious about watching it live in the XMB… Does it just open an internet browser window, or will I actually be able to watch it natively from the PS3 XMB?

I’ll probably just watch it on my laptop hooked up to my TV, but not having to lug that over and find all the cables to plug it in would be nice.

Meh, I’ll probably just watch it on my iMac anyways… -_-

Just hope next gen console is packing powerful hardware + alot Ram and Vram but 100 times better software to make it shine bright. Download things while its in the background when playing games like system software update and ect.
