Sony’s PlayStation 4 has been delayed from its originally planned 6 December 2013 launch date in South Africa, a Ster Kinekor representative has confirmed to MyGaming.
Well, that is unfortunate.
Least they will have more games by time it launches! Being able to get ps4 with infamous day 1 would be awsome..
Yeah thats too bad. It's good that it's only a week delay and they can still get it before Christmas.
This is true.
It could have be catastrophically delayed until 2014!
Could this be to allocate all the manufactured consoles to EU and US because of extreme demand? From a busuness point of view if they cant keep up with demand, those potential buyers could turn to the X1 instead so it would make sense to fill those countries with as many consoles as possible.
That sucks. I have a friend that lives in Southern Africa :(
Its only a week delay don't get emotional.
What, no doom and gloom? No "broken promises" responses?
Well i'm from SA, and i'm fine with the delay only being a week long. Not such a big deal. If it was delayed into 2014, then my reaction would be quite diferent.
What for ? while every market is important enough , SA is hardly a primary target
Yah, never mind that it's a week delay. But then, some will always look for trouble where there is none.
Maybe if it was a few months or even into next year, sure. It's a week.
hm that sucks
Just don't do it to the uk
We already have to wait until after it has already released in the US and UK, so an extra wee shouldn't make a difference. I just see it as a chance to judge reaction on the product before I decide to get it. And at least it is realising here the Xbone doesn't even have a confirmed release anywhere in Africa.
