PS4 Release Date Should Come into Focus Soon

TheHDRoom: "Sony's PS4 release date has been a topic of much speculation since the console was first unveiled several months ago in New York City. With yesterday's news that PS4 bundles pre-orders at are back in stock, let's circle back around and try to determine the most logical PS4 release date that Sony's marketing arm is most likely to select." (PS4)

I'm going to go with Gamescom, that's when we will know

I do agree with you but I can also see them trying to undercut Microsoft by a week or so and vice versa. We might not get a release date at Gamescom but a week later if they are going to do this.

I almost don't think they'll make a huge announcement at a show like GC or TGS. It seems like they might just do a countdown-style announcement on social media. I hope it's bigger fanfare than that, but E3 is the big daddy. The other shows are so much smaller. Release date is a big deal. Deserves a big announcement.

Or at TGS.

I think TGS is too close to the release time frame. They can do whatever they want, but I would announce a release date at Gamescom and then BLOW their minds at TGS with some last minute launch game title announcements.

They better not wait till TGS, I may crap a brick by then!
Minato-Namikaze  +   855d ago
I seriously think they have a time frame and are just waiting for MS to announce their date. They are gonna probably wanna launch same day......think of the foolishness in those midnight launch lines, lol.
The_Sneauxman  +   855d ago
ehh idk, if Sony released the same day as the Xbone, biblical prophecy of Armageddon would commence

I swear I read an article on Sony giving a release date at gamescom
lento  +   855d ago
Ya I do believe they will tell us soon.... Random thing I few days ago my ps4 order on the candian amazon just added " launch day addition" to my preordered ps4. Maybe it means something... Iunno just hopeful I guess.

Sony stated they are releasing in the UK and US first as they are the most under threat of its markets, so I reckon last week in October for UK and US, and Jap plus parts of Europe in November.
6DEAD6END6  +   855d ago
My guess is late Oct release, a launch right before Call of Duty: Ghost release.
Crystallis  +   855d ago
I was thinking the same thing but for BF4 which is releasing on Oct 29th.
Scatpants  +   855d ago
I am guessing the 29th for the PS4 also. Since Microsoft announced November they know the 29th will beat them to the market.
Roper316  +   855d ago
I'm gonna go with the date is announced at the TGS with a mid to late October release date.
TheEvilWithin  +   855d ago
I really hope the PS4 launches in October. Sick of waiting already! I just want the damn thing! lol

Quick question? Not much of a COD or Battlefield person but if people had to choose. Which would you get and why?
ABeastNamedTariq  +   855d ago
Personally I'm getting Battlefield 4 (have it preordered) because of the 64-player multiplayer. The sense of scale, the sheer chaos, combined with DICE's amazing sound design (which will be AMAZING on the Astros I plan to buy around the PS4's launch).. Not to mention it'll look great and run smoothly. If I do get COD, it'll be because all my friends would get it and play online and make me feel left out lol.
DragonPs4  +   855d ago
BF4 Destruction,vehicular combat, squad based teams.
Scatpants  +   855d ago
That new commander feature with BF4 should see strategies be more coordinated this time around if people listen to the commander, and he isn't a moron.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   855d ago
Got my system paid off, working on the launch games. I'm ready! Midnight! Day one! Lol hopefully they'll announce it at Gamescom, I don't see why they wouldn't.

I'm guessing October 29th, just in time for Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed IV.

That's also after Beyond: Two Souls has released and had just under 3 weeks in the spotlight.

Serious question: For anybody who preordered a ps4 from amazon on June 10th.....did you get a random email from Amazon stating that your order has been received and preparing for shipment? Of course the date is still December 31st....and if shows I have a launch console......but this stranding email to send out.
Sitdown  +   855d ago
Forgot to add that I received the email yesterday.
bjmartynhak  +   855d ago
Amazon from where?

I receive an email from Amazon UK stating that PS4 still doesn't have a release date.

Edit: received yesterday too

Amazon USA.....and it's pretty much identical the the email I got the day I placed the order.
bjmartynhak  +   855d ago
Weird stuff. Probably something automatic according to time passed from the pre-order.
Baller0385  +   855d ago
I just want to know so I can take vacation at work
Scatpants  +   855d ago
I will definitely take that day off as well. That is my videogame Christmas. It should just be a holiday anyway.
Madderz  +   855d ago
I plan to take a week off and spend it in my undergarments eating junk food and drinking red bull.

Im gonna be in PS4 heaven.

Cant freakin' wait.
