Sony looks set to officially unveil its next generation PlayStation in a little under three weeks' time.

The platform holder teased an imminent announcement of its next-generation PlayStation last night, revealing plans for a special PlayStation event on February 20 where it invited fans to "See The Future", and releasing a mysterious video featuring the PlayStation buttons.

The event, which is being hosted in New York City, will be live-streamed via Sony's PlayStation Blog at 11pm GMT on February 20.

SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida tweeted "!?" in response to the tease.

Rumours have long-suggested that both Sony and Microsoft are gearing up to unveil their next-generation consoles within the next few months.

A Game Informer rumour also claimed that Sony is "determined not to come out" after Microsoft's next Xbox, suggesting that the manufacturer may be planning to announce its next-generation console prior to Microsoft.

Imagine if they did an Apple-style launch where they announced it on 20th and it came out to buy on 27th.

So all that "MS can go first" was just dribble like every other console rumour at the moment then.
