Tonight is expected to be the night when the next generation begins, assuming Sony lives up to the hype and announces the PlayStation 4, and you can watch the whole thing happen live right here on VideoGamer.com.

You'll find a livestream elsewhere on VideoGamer.com, and a live chat which will be home to the VideoGamer.com team from 10:30pm GMT. Dave is currently flying over to the US and providing nothing goes wrong will be joining the chat direct from Sony's press conference - where he hopefully won't fall off his chair.

And for an extra bit of entertainment download the PS4 Bingo card... such fun - get the black and white version here.

Been scavenging through my empty shelves and settled on Mead and Ice cream for tonight's festivities.

Government debt is a completely different kettle of fish.

Fair enough sorry if you felt I was dragging it on :)

But to give you an idea the UK's rating is at the moment AAA and 10% of the UK's income is just to pay off debt. That's how bad Sony's finances are and that's why it's considered junk by some.

Pizza would be nice, but on my budget and with my family around, no chance!

I wish someone had invented Star Trek replicators or some sort of matter transfer over the internet...

It was only rated as BB- by one of the three ratings companies, though (Panasonic was BBB-)

I think we'll have to just agree to disagree on this one, lest it go on forever!

I have a full bottle of JD on my counter but I'm hoping it stays put! By the way, if you enjoy blackouts, I highly recommend drinking mulled wine (in large quantities) followed by JD & coke (also in large quantities). It's a winner.

But it's not just an area but pretty much all of Sony except Playstation. Selling off your assets just so you can avoid going insolvent isn't standard practice for most business.

For every dollar they bring in 30 cents probally goes towards just paying the debt if it's considered junk by experts.

That's a big problem that shouldn't be ignored.

You are correct that many firms in the tech (and particularly the TV) sector are struggling, made more difficult for Asian companies like Panasonic or Sony because of the high value of the Yen.

Also, quarterly losses don't add up to a total loss for the year, it's more complicated than that. There's a full-year net income of $215 million and only $1.1 billion of that comes from the sale of one of their HQs.

So pretty much struggling to make it back after a poor year in 2010 and again in 2011, Kaz has started the turn around but it's slower than a lot of investors would have liked.

"Sony posted a third-quarter operating profit of 46.4 billion yen, compared with an operating loss of 91.7 billion yen a year earlier, and boosted sales to 1.95 trillion yen from 1.82 trillion yen. The company was expected to post net income of 21 billion yen, based on the average of three analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Its restructuring charges more than tripled to 16.7 billion yen."

But, as I said before, I don't see how that has much bearing on how the PS4 will turn out unless anyone thinks that Sony will go bust, but they're a long way from that at present.
