The PlayStation Initiative, a secret, exclusive Sony invite-only event made out to select PlayStation MVPs, takes place in just three days at New York City’s Gotham Hall. Many have their speculations on what will take place or be announced, and so do I. Take a look as I list 5 announcements we’re likely to see announced from Sony for PlayStation 4.
5. PlayStation 4 Slim Revealed
PlayStation 4 has almost reached its second birthday, and with rumors floating around of the Xbox One losing some weight, we wouldn’t be surprised if Sony would follow the trend. Sony is, of course, a trailblazer in slimming down their systems to rebrand it. But does the already slim design need another remodel? Who’s to say ? But today it is never unpopular to go smaller with an entertainment gaming system.
4. PlayStation Vita Colors
Japan always gets the cool stuff, right? Well, with so much praise of the 20th anniversary PS4 and countless other limited edition color systems, it would be smart to follow the trend for their mobile gaming device. Not to mention its competition, the New Nintendo 3DS XL, releases on the same day as the PlayStation Initiative. Sony really does need to take the “initiative” to be competitive with The Vita against its rival and become relevant again. The PS Vita is one if the lowest-selling platforms in the market. It has so much potential, but it lacks identity, so sprucing it up with colors would bring it life. Japan received the PlayStation Vita Colors with its slim Vita last winter, so bring the colors for the North America PS Vita as well. It would be a smart initiative for Sony to rebrand the Vita with PlayStation Vita Colors.
3. Project Morpheus Announcement
Virtual reality seems to be trending, not only in the tech sphere, but also in the video game sector. With Microsoft finally jumping into the VR market with the revolutionary Project HoloLens, it would be smart to show what new advances Project Morpheus is up to. Though Project HoloLens is on a whole other level, there has been no further word on what Project Morpheus will do for PlayStation 4.
2. PlayStation Vue Price Point and Free Trial Announced
Cable for your gaming system is evolving by the second, especially since the Sling TV app and PlayStation Vue were announced with further details at CES 2015. PlayStation Vue has a lot to offer, with over 70 networks and additional features, but Sony has yet to give a price for the TV service app. PlayStation Initiative would be the perfect place to announce the price.
1. PlayStation Home for PS4 Revealed
To invite PlayStation MVPs to play unreleased games and mingle with celebrities is one thing for the PlayStation community to experience, but to announce something the PS community was physically involved with would be grand. PlayStation Home for PlayStation 4 would be the perfect announcement for PlayStation Initiative, since members from PlayStation’s gaming community would be in attendance. In addition, we are unsure why the event is titled “PlayStation Initiative.” We’ll see if they will be announcing new things the gaming community can participate in online with PlayStation Home or another virtual successor for PS4.
Everything is secretive for now, but we have our predictions. What do you think will be announced?
