Sony confirmed a holiday release date for its next generation PlayStation 4 at PlayStation Meeting 2013, but it saved a lot of the important details like price point, actual release date and what the console even looks like for a later date. But that hasn’t stopped retailers around the world from starting to take pre-orders for the new device.
Tony Bartel, president of GameStop, told me: “We are very excited about the upcoming holiday launch of the new Sony PS4. The new system brings much needed innovation to the video game market. Our consumer base has shown strong early enthusiasm for the PS4 as evidenced by more than 100,000 people who have already signed up for our First To Know List.”
