UPDATE: Sony teased “the reveal of something new” yesterday with a brief trailer showing something draped under a red sheet. The company has now revealed the PlayStation secret that was hiding under the sheet and it’s … a limited edition Gran Turismo Sport PlayStation 4 console.
As revealed by the European PlayStation Blog, consumers in the U.K., Europe and Australia will be able to purchase a limited edition 1TB slim PS4 console and controller with special Gran Turismo branding on October 18. The bundle includes a limited edition, two tone silver and black 1TB slim console, and customized controller. A Day 1 edition of Gran Turismo Sport will also be included, giving players access to $250,000 in-game credits, livery sticker packs, a chrome racing helmet, and 60 PS4 avatars.
The limited edition controller will also be available for purchase on its own or bundled with a standard edition of the game.
It’s safe to say this isn’t a PlayStation announcement that will set the world on fire but it’s still a cool thing for Gran Turismo fans, though the fact that Sony hasn’t revealed whether or not the bundle will be available in North America is disappointing.
Original Story: PlayStation’s Twitter accounts have begun teasing a mysterious new reveal.
The same teaser appears on several different PlayStation feeds and shows a brief video featuring something concealed by a red sheet.

With Gamescom currently happening in Germany, one would assume that Sony has something big to announce at the event, but the company currently has no major appreances planned. The next closest major PlayStation event is Sony’s Media Showcase at Paris Games Week on October 30.
What could Sony be hiding under the sheet? A new console? A new game? We’ll have an update when further information is revealed.
