I was hoping for an October date, but it's good to know when I'll get my hands on it
Tony-A  +   899d ago
Day One! It'll give me time to pay off all the games I want in full.

There were a lot of announcements in that conference... I'm glad to see the games coming to Vita, and all of those PS4 titles announced. And Twitch TV? Kinda didn't see that coming.

32 countries. It was an insanely clever move to put the launch in the US before it's second biggest shopping day of the year; Black Friday.

November is going to be a busy month thats for sure.
alien626  +   899d ago
good to know i was kind of right. October release would of be nice but was expecting it no later than nov 20
vigilante_man  +   899d ago
They must know when MS are shipping.

Had hoped for the same day for UK. Guess they are hitting the US hard this time. At least we do not have a long wait like last time.

Just gotta wait for MS to release XB1 launch date.
Anarki  +   899d ago
Disapprove with getting it 14 days after NA. Why do NA get everything first, even though Europe is Sony's strongest region...
President  +   899d ago
32 countries, WOW. Thats 19 more than Xbone.
1Victor  +   899d ago
@ Anarki because They Have To Ship Them From Mexico By Boat JK be Glad Its Not 6 Months Like Before

@Zuperman: so that guy is obviously the REAL "YES man"..haha!

Sweet news though! I know what I'll be doing this x-mas! ;) ;) ;)

I was expecting an end of August release
nirwanda  +   899d ago
@anarki how can you not be pleased with two weeks after usa it's traditionally a whole year later.
I'm impressed with the release date for the first time ever.
DragonKnight  +   899d ago
Anyone else catch the two jabs Sony made at Microsoft?

@Anarki: Blame your government. They make the cost and process of doing business in European countries expensive and unnecessarily difficult.
FamilyGuy  +   899d ago
Gives me more time to save up, really impressed with them releasing in 32 countries this year too.
gaffyh  +   899d ago
I am so disappointed that it's not coming out in October. I guess I only have myself to blame, but the 32 countries thing was definitely a body blow to MS.
zeee  +   899d ago
Great! Every single f***ng day is now going to feel like a whole year!!!

Nov 15th can't come any sooner!

Best of luck to both Sony and MS with their upcoming consoles.

Am also gonna pick up a Vita before the end of the year. Still hoping for PS4+PS Vita bundle. Will gladly cancel my pre-order and go for that!
sengoku  +   898d ago
Sooner is always better but the date is good enough.
it's still in time for the holiday season and we will have lots of time to play with our new kits.

Just happy to know when we will finally be getting our kits.

I was also hoping for October, but this gives me more time to enjoy GTAV and I'll have time to play Batman: Arkham Origins, before going next-gen.
joe90  +   899d ago
They need to put it out in the US first as its their weakest market and if MS go earlier they are screwed.
AceofStaves  +   899d ago
I don't think Sony are screwed, even if MS can manage to launch earlier. That lower price point is still important.
HammadTheBeast  +   899d ago
Actually, Black Friday is 2 weeks after release in US. EU doesn't care about black Friday. So it's important to get it in before that day.

I think most people were hoping for a October launch, but at least it's not on Black Friday. Roughly 4 months.

You should get a PS4 for free - well done.

Something tells me they know when MS are going to release. It must be at the end of November. No way they would give 2 weeks free pass to XB1 in the UK.

I was too, but this is probably good for me. I have 4 games pre-ordered for October. Already paid off my PS4 launch games, and will finish paying off my PS4 tomorrow, but still it's nice to have a bit of time to recover on a healthy dose of late cycle release games.:)
GentlemenRUs  +   899d ago
Dam it! Ah well... It's only 15+ more days wait :)

Preordered a long way back in the UK.

Agreed, That was a long long wait.

Agreed as well, I've had to wait longer for other stuff so yeah :)

2 weeks is nothing really is it
i mean its nothing at all is it
i mean its only 2 weeks right,
theres lots to do in 2 weeks right.

who am i kidding, fooking typical still, i pre ordered in february and pre order a shed load of games too, so it'll give me an extra month of scubbing to save up.
Gardenia  +   899d ago
2 weeks is way too long. All the gamertags will be taken by then. That's the whole point of getting the PS4 first, so you can pick the best ID
GentlemenRUs  +   899d ago
But you login with the username from the Vita/PS3 so yeah.
Gardenia  +   899d ago
And what if you want another one or because you are tired of having the same ID for years?
tracyllrkn  +   899d ago
Just make a new PSN on the PS3.
Benchm4rk  +   899d ago
Is there not a feature to change your username on PSN??
Gardenia  +   898d ago
You can't make a new ID because all names are already taken, that's my point. I dont want for example Snake61434028 or XxSnakexX as a gamertag, so stupid

So US gets it 2 weeks earlier and a cheaper price tag?
WorldGamer  +   899d ago
Better than paying 100 euros more tho. Just saying.


Referencing the X1 in euros if anyone is interested. Sorry for the confusion.
So, my comment still stands, better than paying more for the other system. Thanks.

Not to mention Europe has been paying a premium for a while now, this is nothing new. Not saying it's right, but it has been happening for some time.

399 dollars is 297 euros.

So basically US is getting it 2 weeks early and 100 euros cheaper than Europe.
Sevir  +   899d ago
Well thanks to Europe's VAT thats why its more expensive! in anycase its Still CHEAPER than the X1 and you still dont know when The X1 is coming out My guess is that they'll likely launch on the 29th in the US!

None the Less I'm just happy Sony came out and dropped the release! I hoped it would have been early Nov and Mid Nov in the US is perfect!
TimeSkipLuffy  +   899d ago
you need to consider that in most states you need to pay TAX as well which is not included in the price!
orakle44  +   899d ago
lol, even at 6% its what like $24 bucks......still way cheaper with tax.
harrisk954  +   899d ago
Just order from Amazon... No tax! :)
orakle44  +   899d ago
@harris, or that! lol
Tony-A  +   899d ago
I think they did a little sacrificing to get it out in the States a little early just to get it out in front of Black Friday.

People get a full week to buy it before the crowds devour it on the big day.

Minato-Namikaze  +   899d ago
Looks like EU is getting it before Japan though....
Eldyraen  +   899d ago
Probably will announce Japan's at TGS next month. I could see it being the week between the 2 if not the 15th or even sooner. I don't think they would ignore the Sony homeland come launch.

US I could easily see being first simply to get as much market share as possible here knowing others will be more in Sony's favor anyways. Plus we are entitled gits and won't roll with punches as well if we were last ;)

J/k on last but I do know a few people that fit that mold.
badz149  +   899d ago
way better than 6 months gap during the PS3 launch! compared to that, 2 weeks is nothing!

By last, I mean between the US and EU.

At least you have a release date.
Japan might be next year.

I'm from europe and feel your pain though.
Sevir  +   899d ago
Europe and UK arent last, in fact they are second! JAPAN, ASIA, AUSTRALIA, MIDDLE EAST all get it in 2014! You're complaining about 14 days! Our friends in the middle east, South america, and the rising sun DONT even know when they are getting Next gen! and MS is only launching in 13 countries in the EU and NA, and at $100 premium over the PS4...

Over 1 Million Preorder worldwide! The PS4 is gonna be great! I hope you preordered because November 15th and November 29th are going to be a ZOO all over the North West hemisphere!

Still can't wait but don't understand why we have to wait 14 days longer.
TimeSkipLuffy  +   899d ago
I think its because they can't provide enough consoles for a global start. Therefore trying to be early enough for the XBOX home US and pushing more units later to the EU.
Ilovetheps4  +   899d ago
At least it isn't as bad as the PS3 launch in Europe. That was a difference of a few months.

Would have liked an October release but whatever, at least the delay for uk isn't as bad as the ps3 one. Seeing as ill have an extra months pay in the bank I might as well drop the extra £50 and get the new ps eye. I've already cleared my 360 away from my entertainment centre (gona keep it boxed up, tucked out of the way for a rainy day) so all I need now is a ps4 to complete the setup. Back to super probotector for me, currently stuck on the boss battle on the hover bike level. Cats will be kicked in frustration* lol.

so xbox1 and ps4 pretty much launching at the same time, i was hoping sony was gonna hammer that final nail into the coffin and release in Oct. but here we are.



If MS were smart they would announce that the Xbox1 will launches in Europe on the same day the PS4 launches in the US to really take advantage of that FIFA deal. It may not win the war but it would be the smart battlefield maneuver.

Personally though I'm getting both the xbox1 and the ps4, I was just hoping to jump into next gen in oct.

unless xbox one launches the 1st day of november... this would give them a 28 day lead over europe sales and with cod coming out on the 11th it might seal the deal for those players

What I'm saying is you sony fan boys were saying sony would mop the floor with Microsoft come gamescon. But, in the end the only real games were showed in microsoft event. Sony only showed multiplat and ports of indie games. What happen to the games that all yo fan boys were bragging about.

I agree mate, where are the games?

War thunder looks great but I think am going to wait till next year.
finbars75  +   899d ago
What exclusives are you talking about?The ones we already saw were already at E3?Not to sure where your logic is but its not in the right place bud.Sonys conference was good and showed a tone of fantastic indie games and online games that looked spectacular.I want to see something new and fresh not the same old crap like KillerInstinct,forza,deadrisin g3 ect.i mean come on there nothing special to look at in my opinion and your titanfall is nothing revolutionary and thats not out until next spring and they already said it was possibly coming to PS4 but for now they where teasting it out on the PC and X1 in a interveiew a month and a half ago..MS showed just as many 3rd party games as Sony and dont have that many exclusive stuff at all that makes me want a X1.The only thing thats getting on my nerves is all the bullshit timed exclusive crap from both sides which is just plain silly.Love how X1 will get dlc before ps4 owners on BF4 but X1 isnt even launching until next year in sweden which is where Dice are from.Nice job MS you look even more dumb then before.

I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in that front. Indies are great but the conference was far too focused on them we needed at least one huge title and didnt get it. I was really expecting an uncharted 4 announcement after dominic Monaghan blowing the lid on its existence

Hey troll, here are some announced exclusives for PS4 that aren't indie.

- Driveclub

- Infamous

Unannounced, but work in progress
- Naughty Dog
- G.Games

Nothing petty about it, Microsoft and Sony take shots at each other all the time.

Just like when Microsoft said they were going to "kill Sony at E3" .. then proceeded to take one of the worst beatings in history.
jackanderson1985  +   899d ago
i never said they didn't take swipes at each other i said it was very petty and it was

it's extremely petty when both sides do it, just reeks of desperation to take away from the competitors.


ran out of bubbles so edited it here... why didn't he just say that then he could have just said " we had a vision stuck with it" but no he had to take the unnecessary swipe at MS and for me personally it was petty

i know the PS diehards are loving it but it reeks of unprofessionalism

You must be new. Sony and MS take shots at each other quite frequently.

It's all PR for the rabid fanboys of course, since they work together in many ways.
AceofStaves  +   899d ago
So, it's petty to stress how your product and policies differ from those of the competition?

It's not as if he had one of the XB1 consoles on stage and proceeded to smash it with a baseball bat or something. Nor did he make any ridiculous, hyperbolic statements about how PS4 would destroy XB1 in sales.

He simply stated a fact, that Sony had created a vision for PS4 and stuck to their approach. It's not Sony's fault that MS has, essentially, stripped away every policy that made XB1 unique and left it a shell of the original concept.
