i cant wait for the ps4 reveal. im buying two ps4 first day

Septic1663d ago

Sony's next console sounds more and more intriguing the more I hear about it.

EDGE are quite reliable as far as things like rumours are concerned and this seems to be quite accurate.

But seriously, delayed release in Europe? That seriously blows.

Red_Orange_Juice1663d ago

2014? I died a little inside :(

Daver1663d ago

@Septic

Europe always get the consoles few months after as far as I know.

aCasualGamer1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

European release early 2014...? MOTHERFU...!

Oh well. Guess the launch title lineup for Europe will be packed.

Gotta see it from the bright side right?

"Importantly, we’ve learned that Sony has told developers that it is pushing for the final PS4 RAM to match up to Microsoft’s 8GB"

Sony not giving MS any advantage.

will not wait for 2014, will get a US console even if it is marked up a little.

jony_dols1663d ago

I don't understand why Sony never aim for the Christmas market in the West, at launch?

Baka-akaB1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

It's not just Sony . It's probably difficult for manufacturing reasons already ... plus everyone want to dump stock of their older consoles and some time is needed for "western taste" approved launch titles to be ready .

It also probably suits their fiscal reports better

a_bro1663d ago

Good, they better not give microsoft any advantage in regards to ram.

ABizzel11663d ago

Ohhhhhhhhhhh. I called the controller. It made made sense to put the touch pad there, because it's the only real space where it can fit. Hopefully they widen the space to about 3 inches and take the curves off the bottom of the Dual Shock 3 to make a modest sized pad, and not cramp it in there. The start and select buttons aren't used often and can easily be placed at the bottom of the controller.

Score 1 for me :D

ahronith1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Im sorry, but its a big mistake to launch in Japan first nissing the US holiday rush...they should flip flop it.

xyyyr1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Depending on how long the Europe release is after the rest of the world will depend on if I import or not.

subtenko1663d ago

I will preorder it this time around because I know for sure it will sell out again, maybe even faster.

I remember when I was in highschool and I called my dad while in school to see if he could find any gamestops near his work that had any left before launch day. Skipped school the next day to scout some stores with no luck. Except the guy who said "Ticket #1 son, I'll give it to you for 5 grand!" XD

Knight_Crawler1663d ago

Why does Europe always get treated like the ugly red headed step child :(

LOL_WUT1663d ago

If it turns out not being the PS4 then i'll eat my PS3

ThatGuy21663d ago

Sucks for PlayStation gamers in Europe...i think there launching north america before 2014 because of xbox and they dont want it getting a head-start in america because xbox is really popular there and its not in Europe..

hakis861663d ago

I'm really hyped! Hope it's availible worldwide 2013, I don't want to wait until 2014.. that is out of the question :P

Hope someone liveblogs this event, with pictures!
Can't wait to see the in-game demos.. .!!

miyamoto1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

"A new Share button on the controller will, when pressed, launch a new feature that will allow screenshots and video to be distributed online. The PS4 hardware will continually record the most recent 15 minutes of onscreen action (with no processing penalty, claims our source), which users will then be able to edit and broadcast via the Internet."

Goodbye Hauppauge :-(

Sold!

Hmn...AMD processors....
So that is why NVidia made their own portable device...they were boxed out by Sony and M$.

Stevo911663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

I love my ps3 and cant wait for ps4 but if Europe have to wait MONTHS for it to get release here while Japan etc have had it for months like with EVERY other playstation console release then i think its ridiculous and out of order. People trying to think of the positives.. what positives? Unless you can read Japanese and get one imported there are none.
(will still be buying one but feel like the aren't as interest in Europe)

RickHiggity1663d ago

One for the bathroom, I assume?

TheRealSpy1663d ago

There is a very clear and distinct pattern with relation to these rumors.

If the rumor claims that Xbox is more powerful, everyone on n4g shoots it down and the rumor scale always goes in the red. If the rumor claims the PS4 is more powerful, then it's just the opposite.

Just wait for the damn official announcements!

donman11663d ago

LOL... 2... I will trade in my PS3 leading up to the release so it will complete my WiiU/PS4 combo.

SilentNegotiator1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

I'm going to get FOUR jobs! lol just kidding around

Enemy1663d ago

Edge are usually the last ones to ever publish a fabricated rumor. Things are beginning to get interesting indeed.

BattleAxe1663d ago

I hope Edge is wrong, and that Sony actually does a simultaneous worldwide release for the next holiday season.

snp1663d ago

Slightly annoying Sony rewards it's strongest territory by treating it as an afterthought.

BitbyDeath1663d ago

Sucks it might be delayed for Europe.
On the other hand though the systems might have more bugs worked out and more games available on release.

did you sell your soul to the devil? i wont even be able to afford one of those things... :\

NateCole1663d ago

Europeans can always import.

Yes it sucks but Europe have always been hard because of multiple countries and launage etc

morganfell1663d ago

@miyamoto,

I am glad to hear of this feature but I said goodbye to my Hauppauge some time ago. It's still on the desk but Avermedia Live Gamer is the way to go. I get 1080p out of the PS3, I can stream games live on Twitch, and I can lay down all voices of everyone including me directly in the recording. It doesn't do 5.1 sound and that's the downfall but everything else is top notch.

It’s clear Sony has designed a system that, on paper, outperforms Microsoft’s next Xbox. One source familiar with both platforms tells us that in real terms Sony’s console is “slightly more powerful” and “very simple to work with”.

JP13691663d ago

I'm guessing that that's with 4gb of ram. The difference should be more noticeable if they go to 8.
