What?!!....no way!!...impossible!! 0_0 /s

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.

sengoku1468d ago

start that production processes and have em ready.
hopefully world wide launch this year

DarkZane1468d ago

Not hopefully, it was already said it would launch this year.

Peppino71468d ago

Late October to mid November is my guess.

DragonKnight1468d ago

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?

GuyManDude1468d 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.

3-4-51468d 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.

sikbeta1468d ago (Edited 1468d ago )

Corporation knows the launch date of its new product!!!!!!!

:/

Septic1468d ago

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.

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

1OddWorld1468d ago

True or false that was very cool. Nice comment

zeee1468d ago

Nice catch Sourav!!!! I wish it were true and that this were an epic in-game hint!

cl19831468d ago

@battleaxe 8pm maybe the official line start, but it'll be a midnight launch.

dontbhatin1468d ago (Edited 1468d ago )

10 17 BRICK SQUAD!!!

Well considering launches are usually on tuesdays right? Well the 17th is a thursday.

nirwanda1467d 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.

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!

nirwanda1467d ago

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.

kamakaz3md1468d ago

i get ur joke, but with sony they never really know wtf there doing lol, i cant wait for ps4 tho

Sitdown1468d ago

Great.... now can they let me preorder it.

IAmLee1468d ago

According to an interview the Sony CEO had with 'The Sun' Newspaper, it will be released October this year and will cost £300..

dontbhatin1468d ago

Link or it didn't happen. Newspaper always has a internet version.

IAmLee1467d ago (Edited 1467d ago )

Apparently it was just added on by the author, my bad, but that is why I said "Apparently."

dontbhatin1466d ago

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

BABY-JEDI1468d ago

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

Psn8001468d ago (Edited 1468d ago )

I bet America will be first but why can't they do a world wide launch because I want a Ps4 now .

showtimefolks1468d ago
