PlayStation 4 will release in the UK later this year, supermarket chain ASDA has stated.
Please be true, don't make us wait Sony, a Worldwide launch would be such a boon for PS4. I'd rather see worldwide shortages than make ANY region wait for launch. Not only does it make your customer base in those regions feel like alienated, second-class citizens, it also makes sure that devoted fans who queue for hours and pre-order well in advance are rewarded for their dedication.
Agree! I'm in the UK and the wait between the PS3 launch in November for the US and the launch in March for us was torture! If there is such a gap between the PS4 region launches it would be even more torturous because the PS4 is looking to have a much better launch with so many good games and content coming out right away. I love Sony and I love PlayStation and after the PS4 comes out I'll love them even more. Please Sony, my pre-order is down, now do the right thing and release before Christmas!
Like anyone cared, PS4 will not launch in Turkey in 2013. While insignificant to most, it means that small markets will not see PS4 in 2013. I'm expecting a Japan / US launch first, and before the end of 2013 it should launch in bigger European markets. Here's a link: http://www.ps4blog.net/topi...
like anyone cared? i care, i'm european and i really hope to be able to buy a PS4 before the end of 2013. next time speak for yourself.
Like anyone cared about Turkey PS4 launch I meant. It may be insignificant to people in Japan and US, for example, but the fact that at least it won't be launching in Turkey in 2013 can be extrapolated to similar markets. Don't go up in arms so quickly!?
Hope it comes out this year for Australia too, please Sony.
It better do , i have $400 down on it already at eb games.
Yeah, sadly they'll make us wait. . . the rest of Europe that is. UK might get it this year tho'. I want to hold that new controller in my hands soon.
Makes no sense , if UK gets it the rest of europe will . Since when does uk get it before most of europe ?
hasn't it been like that for most electronic devices? look at smartphones, the highest selling phone last year (the galaxy S3) came out in the UK months before even the US got it, nevermind other regions
we are talking about consoles here . UK doesnt usually get them before the rest of europe . And from what i remember UK didnt get the S3 before most EU regions . Nor will UK get the S4 before those same regions
The uks getting the s4 this month, same as us i think. As for the ps4, they may release worldwide you never know.
hope it's true
Well Asda may have some inside info given that the Playstation UK boss Fergal Gara joined from Asda, he may still chat to his old pals.
Great mews, I can't wait to get my hands on this BEAST.
Mews...WHERE OMG...Mews...Mews everywhere :) http://i559.photobucket.com...
hahaha, Too late to edit that :)
Mews? Where? PokeBall! Go! (^^^ beat me by a second!!!)
Heh, heh. :3
Hello Asda colleague 10% discount :D
deposit going down very soon, Without a doubt.
Amazing news :D
Will pre order mine as soon as E3 is over and they have announced the date ( price dosen't matter because i'm getting one either way :D). I just hope we won't have to wait until gamescon ( or is it gamescom?) to get the date.
So I can order my weekly food shopping and a PS4 for home delivery
And the moment, Sony have done everything right this time, but if they F up the launch and the nextbox comes out first, they'll start struggling, not many people will pay £600 for 2 console in less than 6 months.
I'd take this news with a pinch of salt, I'd wait until Sony announces the truth instead of believing what a supermarket chain claims.
This sounds to me like Sony is aiming to working on the markets MS has a lead on, Like the U.S and now the UK. So far Japan, the U.S and the UK(if this turns out true) are getting the system this year. Europe and Australia might be the only two markets that might have to wait until next year; i believe this might have to do with the fact that Sony does well in those two markets. Ofcourse i could be wrong.
I dunno where you guys got the idea that UK would even get it before the rest of europe . THere hasnt been a UK centric launch in a long while (if even ever) for consoles . It's us , japan and europe
Well, that's Christmas sorted...
great, im still concerned about the inflated price us brits will have to pay
Santa better have his pre order in for me ... or i'll smack him back up the chimney come Christmas.
I hope you're right ASDA...
I hope this is true.
Pool full of liquor then you dive in it
