Curse you Sony event,

I thought the darn thing was earlier today.

In case you don't know, Sony is doing... something later today.

And, to be honest, it's looking pretty likely that Sony is ready to announce the PS4. 

Ignoring the rumors that have been flying around:

Sony has started putting up youtube videos about their previous systems.
IGN has leaked what may be the prototype controller

and Kotaku also has some information about the system.

To top it all of,

Do you remember "The Last Guardian"?
The main developer recently came out to say that while the game is STILL being worked on, it's up to Sony to release more information.

Which does hint to being on a Next Gen system.  (While Beyond Good and Evil 2 has also been confirmed for a Next Gen system, Ubisoft has talked about it in that way for a while.  This is the first time something like this has been said about TLG and only a week before the PlayStation event.)

With that being said, I don't really want there to be a new system right now.  The PS3 still more than does it's job, it looks amazing, and I really don't get the need to share every game achievement.  In addition, some rumors state that the PS4 will keep you from playing second hand games and to use online features you'll have to have a paying account.  ((AKA, if you want to play CoD multiplayer, you may need a PlayStation Plus account) 

I REALLY hate those ideas.  Movies can be shared and sold with no one complaining, and you don't need to pay Penguin Books to host a book club. 

But we won't know what is happening until tonight at 6PM Eastern.

So, let's spend the day preparing and drinking tea.  I wonder what will be announced?  (And if it IS the PS4, which games?)
