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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
