"SPIKE TV" is one of the most popular cable TV channels in US. There'll be a shocking PS4 related announcement that will blow your mind.

Using the word phrases of “Shocking & blow your mind” to my estimations could not mean multiplatform related but more of a major PS4 exclusive announcement. Would it really be shocking with our minds blown if Kojima is remaking MGS1 and 2 exclusively for the PS4, not really. It would of course be exciting news but not mind-blowing.
Would it be shocking if MGSV: Ground Zero or Phantom Pain were announced as timed PS4 exclusives, not at all. Sure I may be a tough sell but a timed exclusive update while it would be great news for the Sony loyalists and PS4 market push, that news would not be shocking as Microsoft did it with Mass Effect and does repeatedly with COD DLC updates.
Maybe the fixation on the term ‘shocking’ blinds one from seeing this to be nothing more than a clear example of the hype machine in play. Or maybe I’m pissed off because I can’t figure out what the announcement could be. Either way, tomorrow we will see just blown our minds will be.
