The PS4 Hype Train Destroys the Internet With Animated GIFs

Last week, the internet went mental. Sony announced it would be holding an event later this month in New York City—an event to unveil the PlayStation 4, apparently.

The hype train pulled into the station, and every Sony diehard in sight hopped on. In the wake of "Oh shit, cannot wait" and the "Is this real life?" comments, members of online forum NeoGAF amused themselves by doing what anyone would: posting GIFs.
