Fergal Gara, VP & Managing Director at SCE UK and Ireland, promised we'll officially find out when the PS4 releases at the gamescom conference. - PSLS
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 ?
November it is! or maybe Halloween 2013 :O Please Sony! Give us some treats! lol.
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
I hope early November since BF4 is coming out in October.
A map pack I think.
OK ty :D
I can wait. But how long ? :(
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.
System paid off, so all systems go.... November 1st or sooner works for me.
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!!!
@pedrof93 and just why in the hell would that be funny....
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.
Big deal I will walk into future shop two weeks later and pick one up ... No big deal either way
@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.
Same day release ps4,x1 would be BONKERS which one to choose??? ps4
All the above :-)
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
"LoL it will be hilarious only people that pre-ordered will have access to it." Not quite sure what is so funny about that.
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.
November 13th to be exact.
A Wednesday? I'd have thought it would be a Tuesday.
Wasn't PS3 a Friday? So I'd say any Friday in November, with the 8th my guess.
@Trendy All Playstations have launched on a Saturday. (In the US at least)
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.
here u go.
Later than I'd hoped. Not far off the Nov 19th a Gamestop guy told me though.
The sooner the better. Disagree me, now.
You can't tell me what to do! You just got an agree!
Let's agree to disagree about disagreeing
October 17 :)
Is that a Last of Us reference?
My birthday!! I would be so happy.
Is anyone really surprised here?
Just for giggles ill go with October 17th as well :p
I wouldn't be surprised if both consoles were to release on the same day, or at least in back to back weeks.
Same day would be crazy
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.
That's only on this site. Not in real life.
you're right in real life they'll get stamped on by overreacting customers.
You mean the one lady who goes to buy the XO?
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.
Sony said this holidays and the holidays starts in nov but october 17 would be good too :)
still hoping for an october launch :)
Retailers don't get this information any sooner than the general press, for obvious reasons. This is all BS until it comes from Sony.
Very true, especially Wal-Mart. Of all places. Sony would let Wal-Mart know last:D
September!!!! please!!! so ready for new consoles!
Considering how far into development the PS4 seems to be 10/17/13 is a good day to release the PS4.
I have a feeling there is going to be a huge shortage on ps4's.........
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.
Lets go with 11/3/13 that somehow feels right...:)
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.
October 17th would be icing on the cake.
Everyone keeps saying holidays to me that means when I start seeing decorations comeing out I see that in October.
I say September...since that's when I keep seeing the first Christmas commercials every year!!! Lol
Holidays. With an S. Plural. A man thinks that includes Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween.
I'll file this one under "no shit."
Wowwwww No shit sherlock?
Oct 26th. The same date ps2 launched on back in 2000 :)
My Birthday :D
I want it out now but i would be happy any time before november, october would be good.
i still say naughty dogs "Date of Evacuation" Oct 17,2013
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.
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.
I believe this game of chicken you refer to, is called business strategy! But, I could be wrong.
