PlayStation Saudi Arabia Reveals PlayStation 4 Launch Month?

It seems that the rumors of the PS4 console coming out sometime in October may actually be true according to a video that was released by PlayStation Saudi Arabia clearly titled "مستعدين لأكتوبر؟" which according to Google Translator means "Ready For October" (PS4)

Is that even an official channel? Take a look at the activity feed, whoever is running that channel is "liking" other videos. Seems like this is someones personal Youtube channel.

thought that too, but the video has even been put up by the official twitter account.

Don't official twitter accounts have that little blue tick next to their names?

I could be wrong, but I don't think this is an official Sony account.

EDIT: I just seen this comment on the vid... It makes sense, especially with the gamer's day logo at the end:

"This video is for Gamer's Day in Saudi Arabia in October. It is already scheduled for October and it's an event held by Sony..."

And finally, apparently this has already been debunked on NeoGAF. We'll know when it comes out soon enough though with the "release plans" being confirmed by Sony to make an appearance at Gamescom!

The blue check mark on twitter only means that it is a verified user. Meaning twitter can confirm that the user is who they say they are. They can still be official and not be verified.

No its not PS4 launch. Its Sony Gamers Day in Riyadh.

How the hell did this get approved? Do some research before putting your shitty links on N4G.
JoGam  +   777d ago
I just hope the PS4 has a October release date.
FlameHawk  +   777d ago
If it does, it would come out before Xbox One, then PS4 would get games like Watch_Dogs and AC4 earlier since they are release date games. Oh and BF4.
SpitFireAce85  +   777d ago
OCT 17th 2 more days and we find out i hope.
BG11579  +   776d ago
CBOAT just recently said in NEOGAF that the PS4 is ready to go in the end of October...

90% of what he says ends up being the truth.

This video looks as fake as...a fake thing, but I am quite convinced that October may be the release date.

is unlikely.

But the major territories should be good.
AirJohnston  +   777d ago
Does Saudi Arabia count as a major territory? Lol
MaXsPoT  +   777d ago
Nothing big, probably just a video teasing for an event called "Gamers' Day" in Saudi Arabia, which is going to take place in October. The PS4 will probably be there, that's the purpose of the video.

Ketzicorn  +   777d ago
It wouldn't be that crazy to think late October. Didn't the PS1 and PS2 launch in October?
BlueBlood17  +   777d ago
In the US it was PS1 in September, PS2 in October and PS3 in November.

In Japan it was December, March, November.

In Europe it was September, November, March.

There really is no way of knowing for sure, although I'd say that the first half in Nov is the most likely!

For retail in the US at least they consider October-New Years holiday season when they start having their holiday sales etc.

an october PS4 launch would totally sucker punch microsoft in this coming generation. that one month could make a big difference

This is not the PlayStation 4 release date. The video description says "الفيديو لا يتعلّق بموعد اطلاق بلايستيشن 4 ", or, in English, "this video is not about the PlayStation 4 release date".

Guys believe me I am from Kuwait we here in Arabian Gulf don't give a fuck to our providers. So don't expect anything it just maybe a sales or interview or maybe new company want to create a new low performance IP. These kind of trailers and videos just official from our providers but they never mean something huge and the clue is the description : is not about ps4. They are playing around.
mafiahajeri  +   777d ago
Eeshga3ed et5rb6?

Like it says in the video description "not related to the PS4's release date" that's seems professional to me from Sony KSA. Like someone said a Sony event called gamers day is held in the KSA. I'm not sure if its in October but if it is then its obviously a teaser of the PS4 being playable at the event.

This would be pretty huge for the region so I don't think it can be considered as nothing or as something so petty as an interview, I mean why would they bother?

Don't blame Sony KSA for people not researching or blowing things out of proportion, this article needs to be removed its bad rep for Sony KSA accusing them of something that would really be stupid and unprofessional.

Like people said wait till Gamescom and Sony's conference on the 20th.

@airjohnston lol, we will the Arabian gulf will probably get the PS4 before most territories with people breaking street dates. And official Sony outlets will get it ON the release date for sure.

My sources are saying last week in September the masses will hear it on Tuesday aug 20.

I know you're trolling...but I WANT TO BELIEVE!!! Late September would be insane!!!
iiwii  +   777d ago
Would be an awesome birthday gift if it were released on 9/19/13

..or any day in September.
LoveSpuds  +   777d ago
I have had a feeling for a long while now that Sony are still to play their trump card(s).

I have been telling my buddies for while that I could see no point in Sony being so secretive about the launch date unless their was some sort of surprise, such as an earlier release than anticipated.

I have been saying October since E3, god I hope I am right :)
Hayabusa 117  +   777d ago
...Or, they're being so secretive because they haven't finalised it yet.

Trust me, it ain't gona be October.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   777d ago
Don't trust ninjas. Especially if ninja thinks Sony don't know it's own release date..

'it's gona be November and it'll be before black friday. Discussion over.

Not quite sure why your opinion should matter more than mine, I can only assume you are some how have inside access to Sony's corporate plans....your a lucky, lucky boy, do you know that?!

Fergusonxplainsall  +   777d ago
October will be fine.Either way gamers win.

I hope it's true that the gamers did know first..10/17/13,odd you know.

I may evacuate my house to get PS4 on that day.:P
TacoBurrito  +   777d ago

maddskull  +   777d ago
it is not the release date it is written in the description and since only the SA channel put it up it may mean that they will announce something for the arab gamers maybe the ps4 will be localized into arabic
fsfsxii  +   776d ago
Gamers Day is one of the worst conventions ever. If not the worst.
A birthday party has better planning.
