""Sony know PS4's launch date""
What?!!....no way!!...impossible!! 0_0 /s
FamilyGuy  +   1031d ago
All these jokes, they didn't have a set date before, only an intended release window.

It's kind of important that they know it now, that means it won't slip to next year. They also know the price that they're going for but will adjust that to keep it competitive with whatever price mircosoft announces their system to be.

start that production processes and have em ready.
hopefully world wide launch this year
DarkZane  +   1031d ago
Not hopefully, it was already said it would launch this year.
Peppino7  +   1031d ago
Late October to mid November is my guess.
DragonKnight  +   1031d ago | Funny
Wait wait wait... you mean nVidia doesn't know? They seem to know everything about the PS4, I could have sworn that they would be the first ones to know. Wow. *mind blown* /s

"Sony know PS4's launch date"

..well, do you mind sharing that information?
GuyManDude  +   1031d ago
@DarkZane:

It's been said that the PS4 would launch this year, but it hasn't been confirmed for all territories. It was suggested in February that the Europe launch might not come until 2014. Hopefully that's not the case.
3-4-5  +   1031d ago
Exactly. This means they have the final build/model for the Case of the PS4. We will soon find out what it looks like.

Soon could also include E3.

Aaaaand when I said late November this year as a likely release date, I got spammed by a jillion disagrees. Well, I'm going to lay back and smile as today, I have won the internet.

At 8pm eastern time.

Okay, this is literally the coolest in-game hint ever if this is true! Naughty Dog is seriously an amazing company, and I simply cannot wait until The Last of Us! :3
1OddWorld  +   1031d ago
True or false that was very cool. Nice comment
zeee  +   1031d ago
Nice catch Sourav!!!! I wish it were true and that this were an epic in-game hint!
cl1983  +   1031d ago
@battleaxe 8pm maybe the official line start, but it'll be a midnight launch.
dontbhatin  +   1031d ago

In england they should launch on the 25th of the month, as for most working people it's pay day and more likely to attract an impulsive buy.
bunt-custardly  +   1031d ago
This article completely undermines the intelligence of the reader. Then having avid supporters coming here and defending the article just comes across as patronizing.

VG took a quote from Edge and turned it into something that is profound and pathetic to gain hits from the N4G audience.

Sony is a massive company made up of many bright and influential individuals who study and know the markets. To suggest that Sony only knew the release date in the last few months (internally) is laughable. Sony has a game plan and this article suggests they are a bunch of buffoons.

To add, state the bloody obvious why don't you!

It's not laughable at all, until all the parts are final especially the apu nobody knows a concrete launch date.
It's actually a very good sign if true that production is going well if they now have a firm launch date planned because they will now have a good idea how many per day they are producing and how many get binned.
kamakaz3md  +   1031d ago
i get ur joke, but with sony they never really know wtf there doing lol, i cant wait for ps4 tho
Sitdown  +   1031d ago
Great.... now can they let me preorder it.
IAmLee  +   1031d ago
According to an interview the Sony CEO had with 'The Sun' Newspaper, it will be released October this year and will cost £300..
dontbhatin  +   1031d ago
Link or it didn't happen. Newspaper always has a internet version.
IAmLee  +   1031d ago
Apparently it was just added on by the author, my bad, but that is why I said "Apparently."

You actually said "According" but i get what you mean.

I guess if your going to launch something, it's good to know the date. Believe it or not. This can save some confusion!

Nope. Developers only and behind closed doors.

jocomat9  +   1030d ago
Its actually very informative
Myst-Vearn  +   1031d ago
I was under the impression Sony would be the last to learn of PS4's launch date.
ps3_pwns  +   1031d ago
well Ms didnt even know the x720 announcment date so i doubt they even know the console release date of the x720 lol. sony knowing what they are gonna do and when they are gonna do it and not being scared and hiding the console like ms shows that the ps4 is ready to go and is gonna pwn. the x720 will not be better then it in any way not even price because you have to add that xbl fee thats probably gonna be bumped up 10 to 20 bucks making it 70-80 bucks a year on top of the console price and perpherals like kinect
DiRtY  +   1031d ago
Seriously: WTF! They better do!
MasterCornholio  +   1031d ago
-Sony at E3-

The PS4 will release tomorrow

Crowds mind gets blown.

LOL just kidding but im expecting late November early December.
The_Infected  +   1031d ago
I hope it's in October. The sooner the happier I'll be!
teedogg80  +   1031d ago
That would make me extremely happy.
thehitman  +   1031d ago
Ya that would be very insane for it to release after E3 lol but it will probably release around same date ps3 did. I am sure MS will aim for nov release date as well so Sony wont want to stray too far from there.
Shacojin  +   1031d ago
PlayStation 4 release date 11/25/13
bigfish  +   1031d ago

chasegarcia  +   1031d ago
A single world wide launch would be better in my opinion.
Furesis  +   1031d ago
japan always gets it first lol a world wide launch would be great but i dont see it happening
teedogg80  +   1031d ago
You do know that it is launching in Japan and the US at the same time right. It was confirmed as soon as they announced the system.
PS4isKing_82  +   1031d ago

KyriakosShinedown  +   1031d ago
My personal opinion by estimating the launch day of big AAA games like Battlefield and Assasin's Greed I would said Octomber 15-November 15 and the price will go from 380-450.
TemplarDante  +   1031d ago
