PS4 Release Date Could be as Early as October

Looking at revised pre-order data from Amazon, Sony’s next console may ship well earlier than anyone expected. Over the weekend, the date for several games moved up -- to Nov. 5 in one case, and Oct. 29 in another. (PS4)

Most likely

An October release would be interesting.
JoGam  +   448d ago
I hope October 1st. The sooner the better.
shivvy24  +   448d ago
if its October 24 then its gonna be the best Birthday ever ( its on a thursday ) OMG chances have improved !
GT67  +   448d ago
oct. 29th might be a ploy to see if MS take the bait and release ps4 a week earlier in the month.
Koyes  +   448d ago
Agreed. If the release date is Oct 13th, that would result in the best ever birthday gift courtesy of myself to me ;)

@shivvy24 happy birthday for Oct 24 lol
s8anicslayer  +   447d ago
I hope so, my Ps4 is paid for as well as KZSF,BF4,COD Ghosts. I can't wait!
Insomnia_84  +   447d ago
The day Battlefield 4 releases would be a smart move and seeing how they just put BF3 in the instant game collection for PS+.......hmm interesting! !
fr0sty  +   447d ago
Sounds like they've gone into production, and went to their manufacturing plant with a blank check that read "MORE!!!! NOW!!!!".

Sony knows this thing is going to sell out. I think the earlier they can get it out, the better. Let that launch rush hit hard and keep it going straight through the holidays. Their assembly lines will be running on overdrive.
mrmarx  +   447d ago
it probabl is true..because battlefield 4 usually comes out around that time. and so does nba2k nhl and fifa
The_Con-Sept  +   447d ago
I think this is another sand trap for Microsoft to fall into. The release date for the PS4 is going to be 1 of 4 dates. Nov 12th, 2013. 11th of Dec, 2013. Oct 11 2013. And finally Sept 11th 2013.

Each of these dates have 4 1's in them. There are only so many combinations of dates that have this many 1's in them.

I think Sony may release in November if Microsoft releases in October or earlier. If they choose November and beyond then SCEA will choose October.

Four translates to something similar to death in Japanese. But if you can escape death it still lingers around until it takes someone out. So far it has already struck Microsoft once. Now for the killing blow.

CES 2013.

I vote for a July 4th release, but that's just me.
Andreas-Sword  +   447d ago
I hope also on October 1st, or October 7th.
I pre-ordered for the PS4:
Battlefield 4
Killzone: Shadow Fall
inFamous: Second Son
Watch Dogs
Anarki  +   447d ago
I do hope they do a global release and not a stupid region specific release. HATE HATE HATE how Europe are the last to get anything...
THamm  +   447d ago
Yes remember MS was waaaay behind and this could prove true
alien626  +   447d ago
just wait for knack n killzone release day and you will get a release date
showtimefolks  +   448d ago
the sooner the better

watch dogs
drive club

all 3 day one and maybe knack too

knack(this i may get early 2014 alog with infamous 2nd son)
dasbeer88  +   448d ago
I hope FFXV comes out within this year too. If not, then perhaps an early 2014 release date will be perfect.
bjmartynhak  +   448d ago
I'm guessing that Knack will have a price cut in a short time. Maybe even free on PS+

I'll wait to see if the gameplay is not too repetitive.
teedogg80  +   447d ago
Great choices. I also have the same games preordered.
Monkeysmarts  +   447d ago
Why in the world would FF XV come out before Lightning Returns? Sorry to burst your bubble mate but FF XV may not even be a 2014 release. Q4 2014 at the earliest, if you ask me.

yep im betting on october or september. so that even the hardest of the hardcore xbot fanboys cant resist. they can buy a console now in october for 400 and its the strongest console. or they can be bias and wait for a weaker console that cost 500 dollars in novemeber.

the fact of the matter is everyone is gonna be on the ps4. its gonna be the ps2 all over again but better. so those who think they will be able to not get a ps4 and have a fun time gaming are kidding themselves greatly. plastation network is the new king of social gaming come ps4 time. join us or perish
warewolfSS  +   447d ago
Dude ill have a ps4 day 1. But don't you think your being a little.... Insane .

No one is going to perish, at all.

Maybe you might because your going to give yourself a heart attack from stress over a toy
RedHawkX  +   447d ago
here are the only options ps4, wii u, pc. anything else is retarded at this point. anyone with an xbox one is gonna get ripped to hell on internet and real life and they will perish from stresss and heartache. im trying to help them now. dont get the xbox one its that freaking simple.
wastedcells  +   447d ago
come on late October Release!!! Would be such a nice surprise for gamers.

Wenis  +   448d ago
Ill still be too busy playing GTA V... plus the only game im wanting right now for PS4 is BF4 which wont come out for another month. But I'd think a lot of people who haven't decided on PS4/X1 would probably get the PS4 if it were the only console out, I'd think.
cleft5  +   448d ago
I get the feeling that Sony is going to release their console a lot earlier than Microsoft. I think they are ready to go and just waiting for the right timing.
kneon  +   447d ago
I think you are right, the fact that they took the limits off preorders is a pretty good indication that production is going well.
StinkiWan  +   447d ago
Yeah, I think they're going to come out of the gates HARD. They learned their lesson with the PS3's sputtering start.

I've never cared much for GTA...but I'm so bored with blops2....trade that for GTA5 me thinks. (GameStop 30% boost +cash)

But I'm uncertain 2 months until my ps4.....could now be 1 month after GTA5?!!!!?

I think I'll pass on GTA5 and nail down another ps4 game.

I got KZ:SF & Asscreed:BF covered.
Bf4? Cod.....snore. Can't bring myself to do another cod.
blanket14  +   448d ago
just sayong if you want to play a good fps till then play battlefield 3 I got the premium yesterday for 40 bucks! great deal or you could just jump to dark souls to keep you busy I know it's not fps but those games will keep you busy! also my ps4 is pre ordered cant wait to nap with my new baby oh I mean play with it ;)
NexGen  +   448d ago
Hey that's awesome. You just paid $40 for a game that is free on plus tomorrow, discounted for non plus members. Congrats.
nunley33  +   448d ago
yeah BF3 is free on plus but he bought premium at a good deal. Thats BF3 plus all the dlc which isn't included with the plus version. But premium is on sale in the playstation store for those who want the extra maps at a discount. I wont download BF3 when the store updates but i may later as i have a few friends who has been wanting me to get the game plus i got a new mic i need to use.

PLS COME OUT IN OCTOBER THIS IS THE ONLY THING I WANT lols freaking a its already hard enough waiting for the next gen consoles let alone not even knowing when they are going to officially come out.

Dlacy13g  +   448d ago
So does the fact that BF4 on Xbox One has a release date of Oct 29 mean its coming in Oct too? COD for Xbox One also releases Nov 5.... what does this means??? The game dates are not tied to the console release date. Often you get games released for new hardware up to two weeks prior to the hardware launch. Early Nov is the most likely scenario for either console.
gamertk421  +   448d ago
Thanks for bringing rationality to the conversation. However, with this crowd, I hope you enjoy disagrees.
