Don’t count your PlayStation 4s before they hatch, people. The next generation of gaming consoles may yet miss 2013 for humble countries like Australia and New Zealand.

Man, I feel bad for you Aussies. You get raped on prices, have insane censorship and never get day 1 releases. However, I am jealous as heck your landscape is Lord of the Rings. All I have in Spokane are tweekers, redneck constitutionalists and overweight baby mammas.

Actually the Lord of the Rings sets is in New Zealand.

Rusty5151873d ago

That even sucks worse...Poor Australia..

Twignberries1874d ago

Yeah it sucks man. A couple inaccuracies though in your comment. We now actually have the R 18+ rating on games now so no more censorship, and yes, Lord of the Rings was in fact New Zealand.

unchartedxplorer1874d ago

At least you get all the awesome games during the summer!

Plus, So many poisonous creatures out there.

Bathyj1873d ago

21 of the Top 25 most poisonous snakes in the world and our spiders do alright too.

And crocs and sharks dont even need poison, but more people die from mosquito bites every year.

Actually some of our games come out before the States for some reason. Maybe cause we're ahead of you in timezones.

And even though I've been sort of expecting this, hes basing that off we didnt get the PS3 at the same time as the US.

Thats true, but we did get it when Europe got it, and the consensus seems to be for a global release this time, so if Europe gets it this year, I think we will too.

Man I hope so, want to be playing that baby at Christmas.

I think if anything they should delay the US. Europe is their biggest market, they should look after them first. Then again its a new gen and they want to get off on the right foot, they want USA to come to the party this time, but at the same time telling them they cant have it will only make them want it more.

cl19831873d ago

The United States is almost the same population as all of Europe. When you then figure in Canada they have potential of more sale in two countries then in a whole continent.

I agree we get raped on prices and release dates for consoles is usually later for us as well but the ratings for video games has finally changed to include r+18 so we now get everything in full.....thank fuck that old codger responsible for voting against it is retired or dead, not sure which one. Sometimes we get games before the U.S which is weird And By the way its new zealand is where the lord of the rings was filmed but us aussies ride in kangaroo pouches to school and have to watch out for dangerous drop bears.....they are brutal!!!

Here's hoping this isn't true! We have to pay more and we have to wait longer?! Go figure!

nevin11873d ago

Well atleast you will have more time to save for it.

Also, Austraila minium wage is higher than America.

BitbyDeath1873d ago

Sony did say they were going to try make 16 million of them so hopefully that'll be enough for everyone.

Bathyj1873d ago

That number is ridiculous, it will never happen. They would be ecstatic if they sold that in the first year.

I remember hearing that but did it actually come from Sony?

BitbyDeath1873d ago

Not from Sony themselves but from the component makers/manufacturers. So should be how much they have been asked to deliver to Sony.

That said Sony might just be after a backlog of parts and not necessarily have them all put together by launch.

Still hoping we get it this year tho.

BitbyDeath1873d ago

True, i had remembered incorrectly as to who said what.

slapsta721873d ago

Oh well, I am hoping that gta V keeps me busy all the way into 2014.

The sure to be more expensive price tag I can definitely do without though :/
