Time to dust off that hype machine. The next generation of videogame consoles may debut as early as February 20. That’s the date Sony has set aside for an event in New York City, leading some to believe this could be the first ever announcement of the PlayStation 4, the inevitable successor to the company’s current PlayStation 3 game system.

In any case, it has certainly reignited the buzz surrounding next-gen hardware and added strength to rumors that Sony and Microsoft’s new consoles may debut before their traditional E3 unveiling.
