Sony Books Hammerstein Ballroom In NY For PlayStation Event

Well, they've got just the right venue for a huge unveiling.

As everyone knows, Sony will hold a special PlayStation press event on February 20, at which time many expect the company to formally announce the PlayStation 4. That seems more and more likely with every passing minute. Perhaps it's inevitable.

As it turns out, Sony will be holding this mystery meeting at The Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center Studios in New York. That's not a normal-sized venue for a press event, not by any stretch: The Ballroom can seat up to 2,800 people and sports a ceiling that towers 75 feet above the main floor, complete with rigging points suitable for lighting and other set design accouterments. At the Hammerstein's website, they say "production possibilities are virtually limitless," so maybe that's the kind of thing that attracted Sony. A flashy reveal is incoming!

So at 6 p.m. on February 20, you can expect a seriously high-tech announcement, it seems. They'll be live-streaming the event, of course, and everyone seems fully prepared for the PS4.

Since Sony has seemed to have pulled out the stops and booked a ballroom, maybe they have done the same for the PS4.

Realistically a new console even if announced on the 20th will take at least a year to release.

I still think that Sony wants to get the PS4 out by the holiday season of this year. Why bother unveiling it before E3 otherwise?

I'm picturing that scene where Robocop 2 is revealed.

I was just there today to try and see if any indication about the event can be determined. The outside Windows have a somewhat Sonyish theme to them but not sure if that is just coincidence.

My organization has events there all the time so I am going to speak to our event specialist to see if I can connect with anyone there. I know a couple of security guards and maintenance people who work there. Ill pick there brains too or try to finagle my way into the event. I'll keep you guys posted.

Networking for the win!

Anyone who doesn't regularly network will not get as far in life as they could have.

Great example of using your connections! *slow clap*

May we all benefit from your endeavor!

Yeah. It's serious now. This ps4 may be some serious hardware. I'm willing to bet that there are going to be some super announcements concerning games too.

OMG ..... FF7 PART 2: DRESS UP TIFA FOR ME AND YOU! MUAHAHAHAHA!!!

End of Line.

I think I missed the info somewhere.

Is it being streamed through PSN or something else?
