While Microsoft was more than happy to confirm at E3 2013 that the Xbox One would be releasing in November, Sony stuck with what they’d always said and just gave the PS4 a ‘holiday‘ launch in the US and Europe during their conference. - PSLS
Nov 13th would be great as soon as possible :-)
I want it tomorrow
Tomorrow sounds good lol you hear that Amazon be at my house tomorrow with my PS4
I want it now!!!! And some meatloaf!!!
I'd be frothing at the mouth if it came out tomorrow (and skint). @pimpschitz is that Meatloaf the singer or the food? I can just imagine the delivery guy pull up on his Harley carrying your PS4 to the theme tune of "i would do anything for love" straight to your waiting arms lol.
If it came out tomorrow... Tonight would feel like a century. Anyway, I live in the UK and as long as our release date isn't too long after the Americans I'll be happy (wait, I'm already happy; Damn you Sony!). PS3 was released March 07 here (Europe) and November 06 in the States. Wouldn't be surprised if Novemeber 2013 the PS4 arrives at my door in which the delivery man will be greeted by myself, I might give him a present because I'll be that happy. Off topic of sorts: I still haven't pre-ordered a game yet, too many to pick from (Damn you Sony... AGAIN!).
They put an advertisement in the UK newspaper with a date of 24th of November.
I needed it yesterday
I want it today so I can shut my "Xbox One is better" friends up and show them what REAL power the PS4 has.
My bet is October 17th. Sony would be brilliant to do this. They would get their first batch out to all the hardcore and be able to restock for Black Friday. If you launch too close to Black Friday then their out of consoles and aren't making any money because their shelves are3 empty. They'd be able to keep a steady amount coming in until Christmas and really be able to get a big jump over XBONE. Hell, they could even drop the price 10 dollars on Black Friday if hey launched in October and make an even bigger splash. M$would be dead in the water.
I'll agree with Steven21 with October 17th. Isn't that the date that keeps popping everywhere on the signs in The Last of Us?
october 17th is my birthday!!!!!!!!!! but i'm not from US.... i'm from Italy :(
I really hop not I get married on the 19th so wedding planning going on during that time I would get no game time lol
@minialex Yeah! Naughty Dog could definitely be dropping some serious hints with that. It would be great if it happened. The October 17th would be great for the industry, Sony, and the consumer in mind. Hopefully they'll shock us all and release it then.
That's pretty close to my Birthday, I hope so.
October would be epic though. That extra month ahead of the X1 would have Sony taking the people on the fence about which system they want right off.
I was thinking of October, well its actually more like HOPING lol, since I know it would not make sense to release it any earlier and I want it ASAP!
If the 13th is accurate, NA will get it sooner, that is always the way. Licencing issues always hold up stuff in EU. But if Sony can get it out in Europe by mid-November, that means late October for NA, which would be killer. It would also allow them to get another shipment out for Black Friday after the initial allotment is gobbled up.
Yeah, I would love for that to be the date- if not sooner. @Pimp: I want Frugals. If anybody even knows what that is. Lol.
I guessed 11/12/2013 a while back. That's what it should be so their add campaign can do a recount up to four by fading away the excess 1's with a bright blue 4 to the right that appears fist with the "PS" letters fade in slowly as the 123 fades out. Then fade in the console on the left. Then have the PSVita appear in the right for the subconscious mind to read it as PS4Vita. A.K.A PS4Life (Vita is better defined as saying "life.") Then it would be an instant cult classic advertisement that gamers would totally appreciate seeing. :P Hahahaha if only they could figure that one out.
November 8th or November 22nd. Calling it right now ;)
I Smell A Plot Twist Like The We'll Release Later Than The Competitor Comments And Then BAM plot Twist See The Future On February 20. This Time Sony Is Out For Blood And Microsoft Is The First On The Sidewalk.
Nov 1st would be great. That's sooner than possible ;)
and since 11/13/13 was speculation than could you tell us a day please. pretty please with sugar on top.
Because it's coming out in October! Awh... I just realized ...Wishful thinking gets you no where... sad... Can't wait to find out the release date.
Very sad :(
Feb 21, 2014!
Dude I would have dropped kicked you if you said that in front of me! JK. Not because I don't like you, but because I want it ASAP, not 2014!
You are special alright. JK
a little light-hearted trolling.
You think this is a JOKE?!? I don't know how much longer I can contain my friend Cryptcuzz here, buddy. You'd better watch yourself! lol
You heard what SilentNegotiator said about me so you better recognize we want our PS4 this year not 2014! JK. Anymore soft trolling from you and I cannot guarantee he can be *Silent* much longer ;) Yo Silent, let's roll out!
the typical "we do not comment on rumour or speculation response." I hope this date is true though. Pretty much the sooner the better. Still saving but I'm slowly getting there :)
That's Sony's way of confirming things. LOL!
stop teasing Sony and just tell us the anticipation is too much
Call of Duty launchs on Nov. 5th and Watch Dogs launchs on Nov 19th, its sometime around then
Those dates could easily get pushed back.
It's next week. Someone just called me and told me.
Bro. I got you.
yeah it was a wrong number lol.
The PR for PS4 is massive....I mean talk about building hype...they didnt show the PS4 until MS showed XBOX1...they didnt share the price until the XBOX1....now they are building anticipation for the actual release date. Their PR gets an A+.
Oh god please... November 13th would be heavenly!!! I just dont know what game to buy. I want Fifa 14 but I hear thats launching in 2014?
They will want to keep their cards close to their hands at present I imagine. They probably want to be the first next gen console to release and wouldn't want to give anything away which would allow Microsoft to get the upper hand in this.
Sony got VERY SMART this new generation. This is not the Sony that we knew. This is a massive turn around for their PR department.
Lots of new Management at Playstation these days.No more Krazy ken, stringer, harrison. Instead we get Adam boyes, Scott rohde, Shuhei, Mark cerny, Shahid etc. This is a PS2 type dominance team.
This is not a Ken Kutaragi influenced launch. No Riiiidge Racer this time. As much as that man had to do with PS dominance in the past, he began to make poor decisions which almost was PS undoing. PS2²
September 27 please!!! its my birthday, plus I am beyond ready for new consoles!
26th would be better (my birthday). :-)
25th would be better, you probably know why ;)
Just hope they have the decency to launch at least two weeks apart..
I hope you're right, but a same day release would be so cool! Think of the YouTube videos from the fights at midnight releases!
Yeah I know right! The news media would pick it up and report on it being gang related. New rival gangs sporting what appears to be Playstation Blue and Xbox Green causes one of the biggest riots near store chains across the world simultaneously!
Come out and play :D
I would hate for them both to release at the same time , i dont want to be asked if i can help someone carry their xbone to the car it might do my back in.
I really think it'll be at the very end of October. I'm expecting the X1 to release between November 1-5 just because Call of Duty is releasing on the 5th. I assume that Microsoft wants to have released the console by then. With the way Sony has been doing everything, I think they will release it slightly earlier. Sony keeps trying to 1 up everything that MSFT does. Only time will tell though.
thats two days after my b-day. a man can dream
If they can, they should launch earlier, like September or October. This would give their first party titles a bit of time to themselves before all the third party stuff shows up in November.
This would be cool. All the release madness will be done by Black Friday, allowing me to enjoy the system, as well as going out and shopping for the holidays.
I'm assuming they won't say anything until MS announces something first.
Yep. And you can bet we'll see it before November. Quote me on that.
I'll bookmark it, lol.
In the US we have black friday the day after thanksgiving, i would be surprised if both the PS4 and Xbox1 dont launch before that date, 11/29/13
may I ask what you disagree with: is it that black Friday occurs after thanksgiving in the US? is it that I would be surprised? or is it that the day after thanksgiving is 11/29/13?
that was a funny post
Ppl disagrees with the release date.
Sony needs to RIDE HIGH for the next few months. Insure the positive press is constantly flowing, nothing but positivity. Then release the PS4 either right before Xbox One is released, or in the same 2 week window. They shouldn't allow microsoft to release their console first, they need to go first just to cap off the successful lead up to launch. Why is google chrome telling me that "positivity" isn't a word.
cause its google chrome.
Looking at the history of Sony, the PS1 launch in September 1995 in NA, the PS2 in October 2000, and the PS3 November 2006. This generation I think it's going to be released on October 30th.
