PS4 to be announced February 20th??? Will Sony beat M$ out the gate this time?

The interwebz has been buzzing pretty loud regarding the PS4/Orbis specs, the tech leaks and the dev kits specs.
And just yesterday Sony released the following video...

Is Sony trying to beat the leaks and steal back the buzz? I believe the answer is a resounding yes! The teaser doesn't show anything definitive but there are some illusions that might be abstract close ups of different angles of the PS4 mixed in with the 3D Triangles, circles, squares and X's. and from the bits I think I spotted it looks alot like the above fan rendering!
February is gonna be an exciting month, if they do announce the PS4 on the 20th, I'm betting we'll see some PS4 game trailers come E32013 and maybe a holiday 2013 launch. And I really believe Sony realizes they need to deliver this generation and be truly competitive with their pricing against Microsoft. 
Some other things Sony needs to do to make the PS4 succeed is backwards compatibility with the PS3, continue PSN integration, if the PSN is strictly for the PS3 that is a huge mistake, it would make all the DLC/games/ music/ movies etc that we bought via the PS Store obsolete and  that would make ALOT of unhappy gamers!
Simply continue the momentum the PlayStation brand has right now, with brilliant exclusives, an enormous library of games and I think Sony's next gen console has a good chance at taking back the title #1 console on the market!
