Video game hardware maker Sony is sending out reminders for its upcoming February 20 event, which many believe will see the company officially reveal the PlayStation 4 gaming console, also known under the codename Orbis.

The company has sent out messages encouraging all those interested to sign up for quick updates via e-mail and to join a special hashtag on Twitter.

There are no more details offered by Sony and the mystery itself seems to point to a big reveal coming in a little more than two weeks.

A number of rumors about the PlayStation 4 have popped up over the last year, but the company has refused to deny any of them.

The new device is expected to include more raw computing power, a better integration of motion tracking and a newly designed digital distribution and streaming service.

Actual launch should arrive in late 2013.
