PS4 Revealed, Or Not


You may have seen a couple of mysterious YouTube videos floating around from a YouTube channel named "SCELabs." The videos claimed to be leaked teasers for the PlayStation 4 announcement. Guess what? They aren't. Sony hardware PR representative Al de Leon broke it down for us in the simplest way possible: "I can confirm that this video is not from SCE (Sony Computer Entertainment)." This isn't 

 a huge surprise considering the unlikelihood of Sony introducing a next-generation console right when they're attempting to revitalize the PS3 with the new Move controller.

I was one who as soon as the PS3 came out I was looking up the PS4 on Google. And of course I ran into all these fake fan made videos, pictures, and websites. And that's not even mentioning the still-shaky economy, which would make pushing expensive new hardware a bit risky right now.

Some writers had theorized that the "PS4" logo could be a new marketing scheme to push the motion-sensing and 3D capabilities being added to the PlayStation 3, particularly since the latest video seems to focus on 3D gaming, but apparently that is not the case.

I've included the latest SCELabs video below so you can check out what got people so excited. Add this video to the already long and growing list of crazy rumors that have turned out to be false.
