Earlier this month, Sony released a 45-second teaser video suggesting the company will make a significant announcement on February 20 at 6 p.m. EDT. The "PlayStation Meeting" will be taking place in New York, according to an invite sent to GameSpot by Sony. The Wall Street Journal has speculated that the event will serve as the official unveiling of the PlayStation 4.
