London: Sony has sent out invitations to a mystery event in New York City on February 20, sparking rumours that the firm might unveil its new-generation PlayStation videogame console.
Sony has not said whether the event, which would ‘discuss the future of Playstation’ will see the launch of a new console.
That has not stopped speculation that the PS4 is about to be announced, the Telegraph reports.
According to a report by the Wall Street Journal reports that, unnamed sources claimed that the new console will be announced this month and released before Christmas.
Sony's last PlayStation event, in January 2011, was used to reveal the PlayStation Vita handheld console, the report said.
A similar meeting, in 2005, was held to demonstrate the prototype PS3 and another, in 1999, saw the unveiling of the PS2, it added.
