Xbox 720 or PlayStation 4 release date potentially discovered

As the industry gets closer and closer to the next-generation of consoles, when the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 will debut is becoming more and more interesting, and a new leak for "Battlefield 4" perhaps points at when the Xbox 720 and/or PlayStation 4 will debut.

From here, Examiner.com took a different angle on this story and saw how this story ends up telling people something different about the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4.

Most would assume the systems will launch before or around Black Friday, so they can ride a bit of the holiday rush that invades retail stores every year, but regardless, people can expect something major to hit retailers this coming winter. (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

Seems like the article is a bit far-fetched, but I've heard worse.

Agreed. It's a tentative date for the game and shows nothing about it being a launch title for those platforms. The PS4 could come out sooner (and the next Xbox) and Battlefield 4 could still come out in November.

"Another glaring detail that was alleged was the PS4 and Xbox 720 would be able to support up to 64 players at one time in an online match, and the two systems will feature 60 frames per second as well."

I'll believe it when I see it. I would love it to happen but I seriously doubt this will be the case.

They already said they were last year. Get your facts straight before you insult someone.

In M.A.G. you can see the graphical hit that game took in order to have that many players. It was by all standards not very good looking graphically compared to top end games like Killzone on the PS3. Killzone 3 also wasn't even in 1080p or at 6ofps. It also only supported up to 24 players which was a decrease from Killzone 2 that had up to 32 players.

It's not just a technical level I am concerned about but that most games on the PS3 and Xbox 360 are peer to peer. I doubt EA will supply dedicated servers for consoles. Again I hope I am wrong on both counts.

True looks like they are pushing it .. But agree I've seen a lot worst around n4g ...

Yes me too I have heard worst too !
Like the zoo in China all the animals had a meeting yesterday with Nintendo over poor sales of the Wii u Lenny the Lion replied next time make your own console !" News just in Gary the Gorilla head of CPU in the Chinese zoo has accepted Microsofts offer of making the Xbox 720 .

Back too the meeting Nintendo are now suing the Chinese zoo of breach of contract but the animals claim they were getting paid chicken feed and horse meat , any way though head of graphics dep Charlie Chicken reckons Nintendo are in breach of contract Why who knows but some day that Nintendo promised Charlie Chicken that he could be head of Nintendo , to be continued .

Hey guys, I wasnt around for this gen launch and have a question. Do you guys think its going to be one of those cases were I will have to sit out in fron of a store for days to get one? With work and family I can't really do that, but I want to get one day one for my family (PS4).
blue_flowers  +   562d ago
dude...its been that way for most tech since 2005 that people all want. better tell your family goodbye come the fall and say hello to a goerge forman grill and a lawn chair lol.
crock7owu10  +   562d ago
Don't really have a universal yes or no for that, unfortunately. I know there were lines out front of stores like Best Buy for the Wii U where I live, so for the PS4, I can only say yes to that. However, I would strongly follow news about the system's pre-ordering online because when we get to that stage, going that route would make your life so much easier than having to wait outside of a store, sir. Just my opinion, and I think it also depends on where you live too. I would say keep a close eye on pre-order for sometime this summer/fall.
KrisButtar  +   562d ago
preorder it and then pick it up after work its what i did for my 360,ps3 and wii
brave27heart  +   562d ago
Like Kris said, pre-order and get it after work. There will be midnight launches, but Id expect the queue to be about an hour long. Or order online and it should be waiting for you when you return.
BLAKHOODe  +   562d ago
Many hate on GameStop, but they have this thing called "pre-ordering" that's quite handy. If Sony announces the PS4 on the 20th, I'll be heading to GameStop on the 21st to pre-order. No sitting outside a store for days hoping I get one for me.
HammadTheBeast  +   562d ago
Are you 7 years old?
sway_z  +   562d ago

How long have you been away? Camping outside stores in case launch consoles sell out are days long gone...only the extremist gamers still do that nonsense.

Back to subject matter....Indeed it's open season for BS for most websites...it does show the demand of the next gen is extremely strong...

Forget the naysayers prophecies of impending console doom across all platforms...

By default the PC is indeed the king of tech, but it is in no way going to replace the console for living room entertainment, not any time soon...

Lets be a little patient for official news...not long now ;)

Well I camped out on ps3 launch day and bought 4 systems. Sold 3 of them for a total of 4000 dollars, and kept one. Talk about profit margin

I will create a website and blog today and post on it:

"PS4 and next XBOX will be released this Friday worldwide...MY INSIDE UNKNOWN SOURCES AT Sony and Microsoft informs us!"

Like all these other sites popping up spewing this, I won't have to provide CREDIBLE proof at all... I will just state "UNKNOWN INSIDE SOURCES" and I am good to go the very same way with the so called LEAKED SPECS of BOTH systems from the numerous sites we have seen in the last few weeks... and many people will take this "news" as the gospel. LOL :-p
You have to love these rumor sites. It's like the National Enquirer for the video game industry...
