Speaking with IVG, PlayStation India country manager Atindriya Bose said that Sony is targeting a simultaneous launch alongside Europe, but logistical issues could cause a delay of up to a month. That’s still good enough to make a 2013 launch.
So it's safe to assume that a global launch is indeed happening, if it's being released in India then Japan surely is going to happen as well.
I'm sure Japan will be in Nov, and then it may be delayed till Dec for India.
Japanese dates will be announced at TGS
India is the great untapped market and could mean a great deal to the right hardware company.
japan is not that great for consoles anymore....handhelds are a different story but they are not as keen as before on consoles
Early October for the uk launch fingers crossed XD
Hell yeah I think Sony is #winning there doing everything perfect, I love you Sony! :)
Although I agree with you, hashtags need to stop.
The World will unite! ^~^
Now its Mexico's turn :)
"Yo quedo Taco Bell" Most the time it's same as U.S, but stores out there put crazy a55 prices!!! Hell, 2 years ago a ps3 would be priced @ 700... All of my family/clan members buy them here in the U.S and smuggle it to Mexico!! Lol...
so we can clearly say we will have WW release this year? omg,so good...
Just give us the date already Sony!
this is teasing at its best
Wont get one until MS set theres in stone as Sony want to beat them to the punch, Thats why they are both coy on it right now.
I'm guessing they know the date and just have a specific event they want to announce it at. MS said November, so if they can they'll just pick October or sooner and not worry about it.
Yeah so I can book that week off work.
Sony is set to sell a massive amount of PS4 consoles this holiday season. India will be interesting since the population is so large.
Might be a good call to launch in india. "the economy of India is the tenth-largest in the world by nominal GDP and the third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). On a per-capita-income basis, India ranked 141st by nominal GDP and 130th by GDP (PPP) in 2012, according to the IMF." http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... I take that to mean income is pretty evenly split amongst India's population, so that's a large number of potential consumers.
Actually as an indian myself, though living in the UK, I can tell you that, in India, you either find people who are super rich e.g. the servants of these people drive mercedes, or people who are below poverty. Yes, do you get those middle class people, but it's very rare, and most of them emigrated to other countries. But yes, it definitely is an untapped market.
@sourav93 I read your comment in indian accent lol I love Bollywood movies! glad to see most gamer's will have the chance to get the PS4 early
India has had a surge in PC gaming recently. Seeing this console land in India is a big plus for Sony.
Its gonna be a massacre.
THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT! http://24.media.tumblr.com/...
Take my bubbles. All of them!
God I love that movie lol great post.
More the merrier
How can they hope to properly supply one region if they going to try and release in them all around a similar if not the same time?
Have people honestly forgotten about production issues with first-run PS2? the XBox 360 and the RRoD? Sony needs to be *VERY* sure about their quality control if they plan on targeting and resupplying so many markets.
I can't tell if you're really good with sarcasm or if your asking a real question.
agree with minato they said they had too drop cell because of cost hard too manufacture since they streamlined the process their confident they can mass produce
Its scary to see how many ps4 will be delieveresd to stores. Worries me, i hope they dont over look anything so my ps4 can last long and wont get the red ring of death lol... Cuz it looks likeit happened to microsoft to beat sony a year
One dude got shot to get a ps3 if I remember correctly, or was it black friday ps3 idk Lets see how many bloodspilings ps4 gonna cause)))
PS4 Will Release in india for just $700 usd
No not $700, might be $440 and in india games are very cheap even in PSN store too.
Actually, games are more or less the same price in India (was there last summer), but what kills it is the price of electronic devices (TVs, consoles, etc). It's usually just too expensive when compared to somewhere like the UK (where I live).
I would love to be a fly on the wall of Xbox HQ.Man, they must be losing their minds.This is the worst case scenario they could of ever envisioned. Going head to head with Playstation while being more expensive, launching in half the territories and face down in the surf, riding a tidal wave of horrible press. This is PS2 style dominance by Sony right now.
Sony bluffed on how far along they were, and MS didn't call it.
Praise be, indian gamers
Good. The more regions this year the better.
Now we know why they did not tell us a release date. They want to relase the PS4 in more countries as possible. Sony handle RP so well I do not recognize Sony anymore (and it's good :p)
Sony is really trying to dominate the global market from day 1. I wonder what kind of volume they're producing of consoles? I'm guessing the most on launch of any system ever by the look of things.
Sony is shooting for WORLD DOMINATION!!!
That's one billion potential customers.
