""Sony know PS4's launch date""
What?!!....no way!!...impossible!! 0_0 /s
FamilyGuy  +   955d 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  +   955d ago
Not hopefully, it was already said it would launch this year.
Peppino7  +   955d ago
Late October to mid November is my guess.

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  +   955d ago

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  +   955d 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.
sourav93  +   955d ago
It's gonna launch on the 17th of October 2013.

BattleAxe  +   955d ago
At 8pm eastern time.
Om3ga370  +   954d ago
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  +   954d ago
True or false that was very cool. Nice comment
zeee  +   954d ago
Nice catch Sourav!!!! I wish it were true and that this were an epic in-game hint!
cl1983  +   954d ago
@battleaxe 8pm maybe the official line start, but it'll be a midnight launch.
dontbhatin  +   954d 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!

nirwanda  +   954d 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.

i get ur joke, but with sony they never really know wtf there doing lol, i cant wait for ps4 tho
Sitdown  +   955d ago
Great.... now can they let me preorder it.
IAmLee  +   955d 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  +   954d ago
Link or it didn't happen. Newspaper always has a internet version.
IAmLee  +   954d ago
Apparently it was just added on by the author, my bad, but that is why I said "Apparently."

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

Sony is doing presentation for developers today. Hopefully something will leak out.

Nope. Developers only and behind closed doors.

jocomat9  +   954d ago
Its actually very informative
Myst-Vearn  +   955d ago
I was under the impression Sony would be the last to learn of PS4's launch date.
ps3_pwns  +   955d 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  +   955d ago
Seriously: WTF! They better do!
MasterCornholio  +   955d 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  +   955d ago
I hope it's in October. The sooner the happier I'll be!
teedogg80  +   955d ago
That would make me extremely happy.
thehitman  +   955d 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  +   955d ago

chasegarcia  +   955d ago
A single world wide launch would be better in my opinion.
Furesis  +   955d ago
japan always gets it first lol a world wide launch would be great but i dont see it happening
teedogg80  +   955d 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  +   955d ago

KyriakosShinedown  +   955d 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  +   955d ago
Im ready.
My wallet is ready.
