LoL it will be hilarious only people that pre-ordered will have access to it. Thing is that Ps4 will be released but it won't be on shelves.

Thank jesus i pre-ordered mine, btw what are the pre-ordered bonuses to the BF4 ?
Zuperman  +   666d ago
November it is! or maybe Halloween 2013 :O

Please Sony! Give us some treats! lol.
MizTv  +   666d ago
Last week of oct or first week of nov please

I don't really care when it comes out, as long as it's pre-December. I'm still catching up on a few games I'd put off (Like Alan Wake and even Shadow of the Colossus...I know...I'm running late). And there are a few more, too. Plus, GTA5 (depending on today's gameplay reveal). And I'll have to find more, too. Because even though I'm super pumped, I'll only be able to snag a couple of launch titles the first month. So I'll be playing both gens until March, at least.

if it's October 17th then that quoi if be epic. biggest ever easter egg.. ever1
Ares84HU  +   665d ago
I hope early November since BF4 is coming out in October.
Starbucks_Fan  +   666d ago
A map pack I think.
pedrof93  +   665d ago
OK ty :D
Gamesgbkiller  +   666d ago
I can wait.

But how long ? :(
kneon  +   666d ago
That's not how it usually works. They will likely have a certain amount allocated to stock on the shelves in addition to the pre-orders allotment.
Sitdown  +   666d ago
System paid off, so all systems go.... November 1st or sooner works for me.
Gameratheart  +   665d ago
Preordered mine the day after e3 started... Oh yeah! I'm pumped! I was an x360 player since launch, but was converted by the ego of ms... And the over bloated price and the fact I think kinect sucks.... Can't wait for my ps4! Mmm mmmm mmmmmmmm!!!
Dmagic  +   665d ago
@pedrof93 and just why in the hell would that be funny....
pedrof93  +   665d ago
I would be the guy that get in a retailer ask for Ps4 and get away with one. While there is a line of persons looking at me.

I would be "Yeah I pre-ordered" also applying a subtle troll face.
T2  +   665d ago
Big deal I will walk into future shop two weeks later and pick one up ... No big deal either way
JessiePinkmanYo  +   665d ago
@Joecanada-I'm sorry man, you must've missed the release of the 360 and what that entailed. I agree with Pedro, if you didn't preorder (either system its looking like/GS stopped PS4 preorders too) you're gonna be s.o.l. I didn't see 360s on shelves till after Easter the next year. Wii was even longer than that.
Edit-be ready to pay through the teeth on EBay if you want a system. Look now, people are already scalping PREORDERS and its only July

Was Jesus the guy who took your pre-order?

On topic: November seems the most likely time for release. December is too late to get in on Black Friday. Retailers will hold back some, or get second shipments in, and use it to pull people into the stores.

I'm guessing 2nd week in November.
GT67  +   665d ago
Same day release ps4,x1 would be BONKERS

which one to choose???

JessiePinkmanYo  +   665d ago
All the above :-)
ps3_pwns  +   665d ago
yep people better preorder because ps4 gonna be sold out everywhere. they are gonna have to wait for more ps4 to come in or commit gaming suicide and get one of the xbox ones on the self because there will be many of those in stock lol.

meanwhile on the ps4 multiplayer online rooms and games will be filled to the brim with gamers and such. xbox one will have less people online then wii u has right now
PurpHerbison  +   665d ago
"LoL it will be hilarious only people that pre-ordered will have access to it." Not quite sure what is so funny about that.
araman  +   665d ago
This is a good problem for Sony to have. Being that item that everybody is scrambling to find for their kids for Christmas is built in advertisement.
1OddWorld  +   666d ago
November 13th to be exact.
doctorstrange  +   666d ago
A Wednesday? I'd have thought it would be a Tuesday.
TrendyGamers  +   666d ago
Wasn't PS3 a Friday? So I'd say any Friday in November, with the 8th my guess.
Jdash24  +   665d ago
@Trendy All Playstations have launched on a Saturday. (In the US at least)
Oner  +   665d ago
I think everyone is missing something that is staring all of us in the face. Sony has a history of releasing their consoles on dates that mean something (usually to themselves more than consumers)...so I'm gonna take a guess and say 11/12/13 which is a Tuesday when games usually release.
Aleithian  +   665d ago
Later than I'd hoped. Not far off the Nov 19th a Gamestop guy told me though.
Mighty Boom  +   666d ago
The sooner the better.

Disagree me, now.
TrendyGamers  +   666d ago
You can't tell me what to do!

You just got an agree!

So rebellious.
doctorstrange  +   665d ago
Let's agree to disagree about disagreeing
wantedboys  +   666d ago
October 17 :)
ceedubya9  +   666d ago
I wish!
Half-Mafia  +   666d ago
Is that a Last of Us reference?
wantedboys  +   665d ago
yes :)
JodyCones  +   666d ago
My birthday!! I would be so happy.
Rusty515  +   666d ago
Is anyone really surprised here?
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   666d ago
Just for giggles ill go with October 17th as well :p
ceedubya9  +   666d ago
I wouldn't be surprised if both consoles were to release on the same day, or at least in back to back weeks.
doctorstrange  +   666d ago
Same day would be crazy
Rusty515  +   666d ago
Wow what if that did happen... Think about all those poor mothers that are going into Wal-Mart to buy their 12 year old the Xbox one with Cod: Ghosts. They'll get destroyed by the violent PS4 buyers.

you're right in real life they'll get stamped on by overreacting customers.
SpinalRemains138  +   666d ago
You mean the one lady who goes to buy the XO?
ceedubya9  +   666d ago
To those that disagree:

It is possible that neither of my scenarios happen. But, with both consoles possibly releasing in November, and more than likely before November 28th, there is a strong possibility that the two consoles could overlap. Unless one releases in the first full week of the month, that only leaves two weeks left to work with.
PositiveEmotions  +   666d ago
Sony said this holidays and the holidays starts in nov but october 17 would be good too :)
andreasx  +   666d ago
still hoping for an october launch :)
Sideras  +   666d ago
Retailers don't get this information any sooner than the general press, for obvious reasons. This is all BS until it comes from Sony.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   666d ago
Very true, especially Wal-Mart. Of all places. Sony would let Wal-Mart know last:D
cunnilumpkin  +   666d ago


so ready for new consoles!
PSN_ZeroOnyx  +   666d ago
Considering how far into development the PS4 seems to be 10/17/13 is a good day to release the PS4.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   666d ago
I have a feeling there is going to be a huge shortage on ps4's.........
stevehyphen  +   665d ago
I have that feeling. Mine is pre-ordered and paid for so I should be fine.
I think it would be more of a supply shortage than a PR stunt. It's pretty safe to say that Sony's internal targets circa February did not include bad Microsoft press. Who knows how it could play out if the demand is as great as the expectations that the internet and the ebgames where I ordered it lead me to believe. They might have suggested words like unlimited before they fully comprehended the situation.
Side note: Too many people out there on both "sides" droppin' the negativity. It's not like one of the consoles is not going to be fun. Come on, brothers and sisters.
s8anicslayer  +   666d ago
Lets go with 11/3/13 that somehow feels right...:)
KingofGambling  +   665d ago
funny for you to choose that specific date because that's my birthday. If the PS4 is release on that day than I have to buy it at launch.
Sarobi  +   666d ago
October 17th would be icing on the cake.
Supermax  +   666d ago
Everyone keeps saying holidays to me that means when I start seeing decorations comeing out I see that in October.
iceman06  +   665d ago
I say September...since that's when I keep seeing the first Christmas commercials every year!!! Lol
Jaqen_Hghar  +   665d ago
Holidays. With an S. Plural. A man thinks that includes Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween.
gamertk421  +   666d ago
I'll file this one under "no shit."
djthechamp24  +   666d ago
Wowwwww No shit sherlock?
PS4isKing_82  +   666d ago
Oct 26th. The same date ps2 launched on back in 2000 :)
RioKing  +   665d ago
My Birthday :D
MRMagoo123  +   665d ago
I want it out now but i would be happy any time before november, october would be good.
supraking951  +   665d ago
i still say naughty dogs "Date of Evacuation" Oct 17,2013
RE_L_MAYER  +   665d ago
January 8th))
UNGR  +   665d ago
Did they really need the year? We know it's this holiday. November seems about right too, it's right when people go in for Christmas shopping. So if all of the PS4 stuff is on shelves right when everyone looks for Christmas gifts you hardly need to advertise, Christmas itself will sell your product.
gamertk421  +   665d ago
You can tell Sony is waiting to see when Xbox One will drop so they can one up them by a week or two. Hopefully MS wins this game of chicken and gets one over on those fools.
CartBlanche  +   665d ago
I believe this game of chicken you refer to, is called business strategy! But, I could be wrong.
NeoTribe  +   665d ago
Sony seems ready to go. Pretty sure they will release before xbox. They have done everything right so far, all they need to do is release first.
CartBlanche  +   665d ago
According to http://www.ps4.sx the date is November 13th. No idea if they have insider info or not. But they do have a countdown counter :D.
zizco5  +   665d ago
i dont pre-order mine because i work at WalMart and im just waiting for the arrive of the PS4 and take it before hits the shelves,no lines for me.
RioKing  +   665d ago
kinda a douche move :/
zizco5  +   664d ago
I do the same with the PS3,so if you have the opportunity you will be a douche too.
RioKing  +   664d ago
^ I do though, I work in the electronics department at my local Target store. I still pre-ordered mine through Amazon though. I can do shady stuff like that too, but I make a moral decision not to..as corny as that might sound.

Technically it's against company policy, and second of all it's just kinda a douche move. If I went to Walmart to buy a PS4 and I knew some worker didn't put one out and just kept it for himself and the shelf was empty; I'd be pissed off and report his ass to a manager for being a dickhead. Of course the customers will most likely never know, and you'll get off scott-free :)

I actually work for WAL MART in electronics dept. and haven't heard any word for a date/month release in NOV. they should wait till SONY OFFICIALLY announce the date
RiPPn  +   665d ago
Retail holiday season starts October 1st. So when Sony said holiday 2013 they likely meant in the window of October 1st - November 29th. (black Friday)

I still think Sony is going to try and launch the same time the PS2 launched which was October 26th 2000. So I believe they will release in the 1 week window of October 22nd - October 29th.
