Sony Calls November 13th PS4 Release Date "Speculation"

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 (PS4)

doctorstrange  +   433d ago
I want it tomorrow
Relientk77  +   433d ago
Tomorrow sounds good lol

you hear that Amazon be at my house tomorrow with my PS4
pimpschitz  +   433d ago
I want it now!!!! And some meatloaf!!!
stuntman_mike  +   433d ago
I'd be frothing at the mouth if it came out tomorrow (and skint).


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!).

September 13th!
Steven21  +   433d ago
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.
minialex  +   433d ago
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
Steven21  +   433d ago
@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.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   433d ago
That's pretty close to my Birthday, I hope so.
FamilyGuy  +   433d ago
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.
Cryptcuzz  +   433d ago
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!
bicfitness  +   433d ago
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.
The_Con-Sept  +   433d ago
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.

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 :)

Call of Duty launchs on Nov. 5th and Watch Dogs launchs on Nov 19th, its sometime around then

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?
aiBreeze  +   433d ago
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.
slutface  +   433d ago
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.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   433d ago
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.
SpinalRemains  +   433d ago
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.

WeAreLegion  +   433d ago
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!
Cryptcuzz  +   433d ago
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.
Ilovetheps4  +   433d ago
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.
S2Killinit  +   433d ago
thats two days after my b-day. a man can dream
C-Thunder  +   433d ago
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.
WorldGamer  +   433d ago
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.
Sarobi  +   433d ago
I'm assuming they won't say anything until MS announces something first.
WeAreLegion  +   433d ago
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
BabyTownFrolics  +   433d ago
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?
mi_titan27  +   433d ago
that was a funny post
SpinalRemains  +   433d ago
Ppl disagrees with the release date.
PerryCaravello  +   433d ago
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.
mi_titan27  +   433d ago
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.
Steven21  +   433d ago
October 17th!!

10-17-2013 by 8pm.... (TLOU easter egg) or was it just too obvious?
Steven21  +   432d ago
Probably too obvious but it would be amazing if it actually happened!
Wolf873  +   433d ago
I'm sure this time Sony and Microsoft would release their consoles around same time frame.
Game4life  +   433d ago
i think sony actually might do a vita styled launch.

Think about it. You get the games that will launch before the actual say like idk 10 games for a pre launch special bundle (it was called a first edition bundle for vita). and a week or two later , you release the launch edition where everygthing is availible
LoveSpuds  +   433d ago
I will straight up loose my shit if it releases on the 13th, I need to know so I can book a week off work :D
MooseWI  +   433d ago
What games do you plan on playing for the week? Not many I can see myself playing, they all come out next year...
mi_titan27  +   433d ago
how loose will it be?
LoveSpuds  +   433d ago
:) Well I like to get a nice Vindaloo in if I am taking leave from the office, so there is a good chance it could be very loose indeed :)
Rockstar  +   433d ago
@ LoveSpuds

Be sure you're well hydrated if you're going to be that loose otherwise you may be in trouble on launch week.
LoveSpuds  +   433d ago
is my boss in here? Thats the only reason I can imagine someone disagreeing that I am excited!
MooseWI  +   433d ago
Wouldn't it release on a Tuesday?

tidusforeverx2  +   433d ago
Best thing they could do as far as a NA release is to launch on October 29th alongside Assassin's Creed IV. It's a AAA 3rd party title that we all know will sell systems. And that will give a 2 week buffer to Watch Dogs. The only thing that realistically complicates the Launch date is being able to guarantee that (x) amount of games will also be available on day 1 as well which is the main reason they haven't announced. Along with the fact that they want to punch Microsoft in the mouth one more time before launch.
XRAVE  +   433d ago
October would be sweet
mochachino  +   433d ago
I'd love October or September

I'm sure the companies are showing deference to GTA though. I'm sure a lot of money was spent making that game.
GamePeace  +   433d ago
I've pre-ordered mine from a catalogue, an employee from the online catalogue phoned me and said that the Ps4 will be released in the middle of december (that's the EU release). This is for sure, he phoned me in the evening...
MRMagoo123  +   433d ago
yet sony havent even said when release was ,but some guy on a phone knows huh lmao

Any day before Nov. 21st can't hurt sales if the software and manufactured units are up and ready to go.
A little more research on previous release dates says that if in fact the European release date is between the 13th and the 21st then the North American release would be a two weeks to a month prior to that date. So possibly October 13th or November 4th.
