Sony's PlayStation 4 launches tonight at midnight. That's right, the next generation of consoles starts in just over four hours as the clock reaches 12:00 on the east coast. Before the all the kids in line can purchase their midnight release consoles, however, Sony has one last big event planned: The PlayStation 4 All-Access Live event. Broadcast on television via Spike and online via Ustream, all starting at 11:00 EST.
We're not just talking about a big party with Sony execs chugging champagne though, oh no. The PlayStation 4 All-Access Live event will be an hour long showcase of trailers, teasers and announcements of upcoming PlayStation content. That includes both unrevealed PlayStation 4 announcements as well as news for all other Sony platforms. It's hard to imagine what they can fit into an hour with all of Spike's required commercials, but hopefully it'll be a great show.
What sort of announcements can we expect? Well, here are a few that have been teased and confirmed via Sony:
- Infamous: Second Son trailer world premiere
- Bungie announcement, including all new footage of Destiny
- The Last of Us single-player story DLC teaser trailer
- Metal Gear Solid V trailer, along with an appearance by Hideo Kojima
In addition to those confirmed announcements and reveals, there are at least a couple rumors:
- Yoshinori Ono of Capcom is in attendance, leading to rumors of Ultra Street Fighter IV being announced for PlayStation 4
- Epic Games' Mark Rein will be in attendance, previous teaser tweets have promised an, "epic night." Fortnite announcement?
- Teaser of multiple PlayStation 4 game announcements
Neoseeker isn't at the event, but we will be watching the livestream (embedded below) and chatting with the community the whole way through. Grab a bag of chips, put on some tunes and sit back, it's time for the next-generation everyone. Seriously, these things don't happen so often anymore. Have a great time, whether you're a Sony, Nintendo or a Microsoft fan. It's a great time to be a gamer.
