As PlayStation revealed what could possibly be the first promotional video for the PlayStation 4. As is the norm with promotional videos from any company, they are usually filled with dozens of “Easter Eggs” that can hint to various announcements or features. Let’s take a look at what we could see or hear in the latest PlayStation promotional video.
The next thing to notice is that in the beginning 5 seconds of the PlayStation video the high pitched digital sound that occurs feels familiar with the start up sound of the PS2. While not being an exact match the pitch sounds like a slight reference to the PS2 which could mean many things:
- The company wants to reach back to one PlayStation which was at the top of its game during the PS2 era
- That this is to signal a new console by using nostalgia to bring the PlayStation Brand forward
- That this is the new start up sound for the PS4.
The next thing to notice is the shapes that occur over the next few seconds. At first they seem to be in place to show the actual design of a new PlayStation device before splitting apart to become the circle, cross, triangle, and square buttons. This is a very speculative sign to notice however it does bring forth a valid idea that this could be a PlayStation 4 announcement.
Another fairly speculative sign is the use of neon lights in the promotional video. The vibrant colors and visual cues all have a three dimensional effect which could be a sign that Sony is sticking with 3D and will be making that a primary concern with the PlayStation 4.
Whatever you see from the PlayStation video feel free to speculate but I will warn that you must take everything here with a grain of salt as it is not set in stone that this is in fact the PlayStation 4. Additionally this is all speculation and analyzation of the PlayStation 2013 video as referenced above!
Please comment with any of your findings in the PlayStation 2013 video and we’ll see if we can work them in!
