A report in major Japanese newspaper the Asahi Shimbun (via The Verge) suggests that the console  will indeed be announced on February  20, and will launch later this year in Japan and North America.

No  mention was made of the European release date, however, suggesting that recent reports of a 2014 launch may be accurate.

It is believed that the  console’s new controller will feature a touch pad, while another report in the  Nikkei business daily says that the console will use cloud technology provided by Gaikai.
