The expectations for the Sony PlayStation event today are super high. The Sony PS4 needs to be a quantum leap for Sony to take the leadership in the video gaming market again.
Today at 6pm Sony has invited the world to a PlayStation event. Everything points to the unveiling of the Sony PS4. The expectations of what the Sony PS4 is about are staggering high. Sony needs a huge hit to compensate the problems in its consumer electronics units. In the video game market Sony fell behind as Microsoft kills with the Xbox 360 and is expected to come out with the Xbox 720 this year as well.
So what is Sony going to unveil today? A new way of gaming experience that is beyond Xbox Kinect? As the slow Wii U sales show, just to throw in a tablet in the mix is not the next big thing. We still will not get Star Trek's Holodeck in our living room, but maybe something close?
I already get the feeling that the PS4 will be a disappointment and just an incremental improvement over the PS3. But I am open to be surprised.
