Shuhei Yoshida responds on Twitter Question about PlayStation 4 Release Date.
It's all a waiting game between MS and Sony. lol at the joke though.
"before it happens" LOOL best answer ever, Some of his replies to some tweets are just way to funny XD PlayStation's best man!
It's not that funny
Haha he does crack me up. I like the guy. Really nice and and clever chap.
hahaha i love this guy
I like Yosh, he has a personality and doesn't come off as a robot.
Dude, you frighten me.
He really is funny and clever with his tweets and answers to questions in interviews. The YouTube video with him on "How to trade PS4 games" was so awesome too.
See, Don Mattrick, or any of the other Xbox folk couldn't really ever get away with that yes, I know Don has left. I'm just saying as a principle
Yoshida, you troll! lol
@Strifeblade I LOLed
iGAM3R-VIII he connects with his fans us the gamers so well, many of his tweets are quite funny before it happens lol, how about letting us know it had already happened and we missed the launch now run to the store and grab yours
@Darx He has excellent sarcasm. He does it in the most mischievous manner
Lmao he be killin me
So, Yosh basically confirms that PS4 'WILL' ship and announce a release date, basically whenever... It sounds like they could say "Release date tomorrow" - but of course they delay and give it time for the sake of the games, the longer they wait, and wait for X1 to announce its release date, the more time it gives developers to refine their games making it so when the PS4 does launch, it'll be an appropriate time to welcome the games made on it that are infact Ready. Microsofts' move, Sony is either waiting for the Checkmate, or they're already in a situation of a Stalemate with Microsoft and just waiting for them to make a move.
Ok, bickering about which company has the better console or exclusives=fairly normal for a gaming website. Bickering about which company has the better/smarter/funnier PR spokespeople is SAD! SAAAAAAAAAAAAAD! All that really matters is that we learn the ps4 release date. It was not disclosed in this article. This wasn't news. This was a TWEET... with NO INFORMATION.
Lol Whata smartazz.
We have to wait for Gamescom or TGS.
Pretty sure he knows that gamers already know about The Last Of Us evacuation date. Maybe that's what he is trying to get out. If it's true then the Gamers did know first before they announce it. We will find out in August.
Lol Yoshida is a straight up troll.
One video. Sharing the game. P.S I know that Microsoft reversed their policy's but when the Video came out they still had their DRM system. Motorola RAZR i
Yeah, Yoshida's a sweetheart though. :-)
The real answer is, whenever Microsoft announces it's release date.
Watch them release it a week before
It don't matter because the xb1 don't look ready to me. I see high failure rate in its future.
This is we're the kids are at.
Sony most likely will announce the release date of the PS4 at Gamescom which occurs on 08/21-08/25 in Cologne Germany.
with last week in Oct.
I'm telling you it's going to be at Gamescom. Waiting until late October doesn't make any sense from a business standpoint. Sony has never announced any of the playstation consoles that late before they're available for sale to the consumer. It's also possible that the PS4 could be for sale late October in the U.S. but unlikely.
We're calling this a "story." I click on "read full article" and it takes me to a tweet. Wow. Can you imagine the hatred and vitriol that would flow forth if a Microsoft guy gave that answer? It would be called arrogant, flippant, glib and a hundred other things. Smh.
Its from twitter.com. you expect a full article from twitter?
You seem to be missing the point so I'll spell it out for you...tweets are not stories and they do not belong here. It never should have been approved and shouldn't still be here now.
"Can you imagine the hatred and vitriol that would flow forth if a Microsoft guy gave that answer?" That would never happen though because Microsoft execs aren't clever.
You know them all? Assuming you've achieved more than they have and are in a position to judge.
IcicleTrepan: Your lame response is lame. Every executive of note or position has been in the public eye, none of them have done anything remotely clever, try again. Btw, your defense of them will yield nothing to your benefit.
@DragonKnight...Neither are you.
@lawgone: Oh burn. I'm so burned. You got me there. /s
Why do you need to bring this up??
I like Shuhei Yoshida, he actually takes the time to respond to consumer questions which is rare for his position. He has responded to me several times, answering questions as well as responding to general tweets to him.
me too i was surprise when he answer my tweet it makes me feel important lol..
dammit shu and his twitter responses lmao
Just on a on a totally different subject, did Sony say at least 20 exclusives with in the first year or more than 20 exclusives with in the first year?
Anyone please correct me if I'm wrong. But as far as I'm aware. 20 first party exclusives in the first year 30 more third party either exclusives or with exclusive content in the first year.
30+ first party exclusives in the works, 20 out the first year, 12 of which are new IP's.
@CKsquid The reason I ask the question is because I was watching some old montage of the Xbox one reveal and Phil spencer said when announcing how many exclusives the Xbox would have he said,"more than fifteen exclusives within the first year". also I believe you are correct.
@psn_ZeroOnyx It's just going to be 30 exclusives, no more or less until they say otherwise.
lol you must be including the whole of 2014 in that figure. Could announce half of them at next years E3 so why say 30
Hah, that was funny
I love how acerbic his humour is.
Might not even be released this year I am thinking early next year
I really don't know what "Holiday 2013" stands for.
I'm sure it will be before XOne, some stores already changed "Holiday 2013" with Fall "2013".
Of course he will not say. Imagine this news headline "Sony announces release info of the PS4 release date date"
Let me finish paying mine off first, then I'll worry about when it comes out. I'm lying. I want it now!!!!!
Generally speaking, when a company spokesperson can afford to be cheeky and playful, it's a good sign of confidence. Nice to see Sony having fun, I'm sure it's a very different place compared to the same period before the PS3 launch.
Sony is waiting for microsoft to announce a release date, and microsoft is waiting for Sony.
And when we'll we know 'before it happens?'
sorry but this isnt even news and should be struck from the top of the pile
Well, GAMESCOM it's got to be then, but why are Europe paying an extra £15-20 on games ffs.
They wont say yet because PS3 is selling really well right now. They dont want to disrupt that momentum by announcing PS4 release date.
I would think they would release it mid to late November. K-mart has the release date at December 30th. I dont know if its a leak or a place holder date. December 30th seems like a odd time to release a console, so I'm just going to guess its a place holder date.
