    PS - I don't really understand the point of this thread though. How can we possibly discuss the press conference without spoilers?! Are we supposed to link a complete video of it, wait until the OP has watched it and then talk about it? As someone said, what's wrong with waking up tomorrow and just typing 'Sony PS4 press conference' into YouTube?

    Personally, I find the actual conferences incredibly fucking dull, usually. I'd rather read the highlights and, if it turns out to be good stuff, then go check out the video footage.

    All high quality efforts I'm sure.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    I got the idea from MacRumors.com. They have spoiler free threads for all Apple keynotes so people who can't watch it live can experience it as if it was live at a later time.

    It's not such a big deal. I'm not a fanboy or anything. I just thought it would be a good idea since these launches are best experienced live via video rather than livetext. Clearly EG believes video is a better medium for these announcements since they've recently been adding videos to all their livetext events. However it seems the EG community doesn't believe spoiler free is a good idea. So we'll leave it at that. No harm done.

    You're far too nice and pleasant for this forum.

    Ah, Apple fans. Suddenly this thread makes sense.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    So why put up the thread today if you can't discuss it until, whoever, has seen it. Do we have to wait until everyone who wants to see the video as-if-live have seen it before we can comment? What kind of conversations are you expecting to have in this thread?

    It's not only not a good idea it's A FUCKING STUPID IDEA.

    In fact turn off your computer, do something else, turn it back on tomorrow, watch the event on YouTube, then have a good old natter in one of the next gen coming threads.

    Impressive display of how fucking narky, whinging, negative and unfriendly this forum can be.

    @Armoured_Bear I like the sarcastic nature of EG, but sometimes it's a bit too overbearing.

    @Armoured_Bear The offer for you to leave and never come back will always be open. If you're that dissatisfied by the community.

    The idea is people bookmark a thread knowing there will be no spoilers. Then when a video appears anywhere on the internet, not necessarily on Youtube, a good community member will post a link to the video, thus everyone who can't watch it live can experience the event as if it was actually happening and be surprised (or not) by any announcements made.

    The thread could also be used to discuss what people expect to hear from the announcement who actually haven't watched the video yet. As I mentioned before the EG community clearly doesn't think that's a good idea. Not a problem at all. In fact it appears Neogaf users have a similar idea (google 'playstation event spoiler free' and it's the top search result). This also amusingly highlights the differences in users between these two websites.

    Feel free to fuck off if you don't like it ecosse. I can't think of a single person who would mourn you.

    It's also hilarious that some guy who signs up to be a moderator on a video game hobbyist site, and has made over eleven-thousand posts while on the job, thinks he has the standing to make a newcomer feel like a giddy tit for wanting to watch a console announcement after the fact.

    Beggars belief.

    Run while you still can Feral, there have to be greener pastures out there.

    To be fair at least 99% of Phattso's posts were made when he wasn't a mod and more than likely /very/ drunk.

    @FeralUK

    I can kind of see your logic but why not just watch the event when you can and then discuss it in a thread later. It seems a weirdly convoluted way of getting information. But maybe that's not the point and you want to be part of the "event" and so this feels like you are participating in it with other like-minded folk!?

    The only thing you could spoil is the name and how it looks.

    Things I 100% guarantee you won't see tonight:

    Technical specs.
    In game graphics.
    100% confirmed launch price or date.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    also my "ITK" contact (can't say so don't bother asking) who is extremely close to the consoles development from its very inception tells me that the console itself will be powered by a cable that plugs directly into your mains socket in the wall at your home!

    @Inertia Yes it is as you said. It is slightly better to actually 'experience' the event through a video rather than seeing a headline 'PS Orbis launches with Uncharted 4' complete with a picture of what the console looks like.

    If someone tells me it launches with GT6 (Just an example) I won't get angry and hit them. Heck I'll probably have a decent conversation about what to expect from GT6. I just thought given the chance i'd rather watch the video than read the text.

    the fact that you need to clarify this worries me!

    Yeah! That's ruined everything. At least you didn't spoil whether or not it has blu-ray...
