Haha sorry yeah...I couldn't see the confirmation anywhere. I re-read it because I know how useless I can be on a Friday, and noticed the info.

Also It would be nice to have a "And here's The Last of Us DLC, out tommorrow!"

I want at least four big titles announced, not JRPG weird stuff, save that for TGS. I want the to know more of the new ip's and AAA franchises.
vigilante_man  +   832d ago
It said "plans" but not "date". This could mean a list of countries but not the actual date.

I do believe they will release the date as well. Sony have done well at being straight up so far. We may even get the final tech issues clarified such as:

. CPU speed
. Ram for games
. Sata interface for HDD (2 or 3)
. etc.

Let the games commence..
torchic  +   832d ago

I'm not sure, "launch plans" include launch dates, territories, bundles and so forth. what other "launch plans" have they left to tell us apart from the release date?

but I do see Sony waiting til TGS in September to give the launch date as one last publicity push, or rather, to ignite the marketing surrounding the release of the console.
Lunatic_Medic  +   832d ago
I, too, assumed they would save the release date information for TGS, but I was talking to my friend last night, and with how SONY said ( back in February)that Japans launch isn't a priority (as compared to the Americas and Europe in the context of releasing quickly and efficiently to beat the XONE) it would be insulting to the Japanese people to announce the release date at an event in their country.

release date announcement CONFIRMED! just do it SONY!!
AlexanderNevermind  +   832d ago
Great news. I've got my fingers crossed for an Oct. release date.
us_army  +   832d ago
O how much I would love an October release... The sooner the better, plus November is so busy with stuff and spending money on the holidays!
TheFutureIsBlue  +   832d ago
I think we all want an October release lol. If not that early November. Please Sony!
assdan  +   832d ago
Or, gamescon could be right now!
GribbleGrunger  +   832d ago
Coming soon, confirmed:


From an insider over at Gaf:

"Originally Posted by Verendus

Release date is being announced next week. It was held because Japan was still being confirmed and they couldn't announce it confidently as early as June. Not to mention various other issues. It has little to do with MS. The release is very soon so MS wouldn't really be able to react regardless, but no specific date could be announced in confidence either a couple months ago."

That October 21st date is looking good at this point

reko  +   832d ago

early October would be better ..
The_Infected  +   831d ago
I'd rather it be late October so I have time to enjoy GTA5. I'll most likely trade in my current gen console to help with next gen.
GarrusVakarian  +   832d ago
The sooner the better.
jay2  +   832d ago

Lucreto  +   832d ago
I hope for an official bundles to be announced.
PsnGammer21  +   832d ago
Yea bundled with the vita for 499 :P
sincitysir1  +   832d ago
No way the vita is worth like 425$ including ps4 /s
imt558  +   832d ago
Can't wait! GIGATON incoming!!!
bulbulito  +   832d ago
I hope there's enough stock for everyone on release day!
PeaSFor  +   832d ago
thats why its a good idea to preorder
Raccoon  +   832d ago
I doubt they'll have enough all over the country, I expect major cities to have shortages in the first few weeks of release maybe the whole first month.. I pre-ordered 2 ps4 and only one physical game as i will download most of my content this coming gen.. And it would be smart to pre-order now even though all launch day consoles are basically gone.
KwietStorm  +   832d ago
Maybe enough for people who already put money down.
Iltapalanyymi  +   832d ago
All right! i knew it! btw it's november 13.
NobleRed  +   832d ago

Supermax  +   832d ago
I have a strange feeling at gamescon Sony ends there conference and says the ps4 is now available in stores.
dcj0524  +   832d ago
" oh. And by the way. The PS4 is available. Now *poof* *vanishes with smoke*.
us_army  +   832d ago
They could try and do the apple approach and say, it releases next week! haha dreaming...
The_Sneauxman  +   831d ago
That almost wouldn't be fair lol, I gotta take time off! Sony better not pull that "Oh by the way". Although that would be pretty cool
stage88  +   832d ago
Come on 21st October....

Btw, does anyone know the times for all the conferences, I can't seem to find them, thanks.

I'm just hoping that they will release the PS4 in Sweden in 2013 so that I don't have to wait until 2014 like the people who pre-ordered the X1.
us_army  +   832d ago
Cannot wait! This will be a great conference im sure! I think there will be something big for the vita too ;)

Also, maybe Uncharted?? haha
clewis94  +   832d ago
Defiantly, some uncharted would be great. Or just anything from Naughty Dog.
o-Sunny-o  +   832d ago
LET THE MUTHAHUMPIN TEA PARTY BEGIN!! ^~^ Sorry time to take my shot.
FragmentsOfHope  +   832d ago
Well, at least I will be able to know 2 things finally.

1. When to expect my bank account to get drained.
2. A date to give my family so they dont think I died.
PositiveEmotions  +   832d ago
Awesome!!!! But damn i wanted this to be a surprise!!
Quicktopick  +   832d ago
