Does A October 21st PlayStation 4 Release Make Sense?

Junkie Monkeys: “Coming Holiday Season” were Sony’s words this year at E3, but a NeoGaf source says Sony might be telling…a SMALL fib.

Yes. Any day in October makes sense to me! In fact, right now would make sense! October 21st is a Monday: Do it, Sony!

The sooner the better, can't wait to get my hands on it

Treezy5043996d ago

Can't wait for Gamescom! Fingers crossed!

An August 16th release date sounds good to me.

Boody-Bandit3996d ago

I'm ready right now. Already have mine pre-paid and will put it to good use the minute I unbox it and power it up. The sooner the better.

zeee3996d ago (Edited 3996d ago )

October? hell yeah but here is the thing... I WANT IT NOW!!

Already placed my pre orders. I'll keep one and the other ones goes to one of you poor suckers who missed the launch edition. Gonna eBay for a small profit.

it's not gonna happen till after or on November 19. Just look @ its launch games. with watchdogs coming out on the 19th I doubt it'll be released a month earlier than their current gen counterparts.

but we can dream can't we?

Ju3995d ago

I think that's quite a possibility. Sony will release before MS and the XBone releases in November.

If Sony is playing it safe it will be October for the PS4. Sure thing.

What makes me curious, though, will BF4 and CoD release on PS4 before XBone? I will laugh so hard if they do. LOL.

A 2013 Console release doesn't make sense in my opinion. Especailly with all these amazing games yet to be released. Granturismo 6,GrandtheftAuto5,Beyond Two SOuls etc...

HammadTheBeast3996d ago

Giving up holiday release is suicide.

KwietStorm_BLM3996d ago

There will always be good games, and developers can't change their schedule to accommodate for new systems. It's been long enough. It's time.

HiddenMission3996d ago

why does it not make sense none of those games are coming to the PS4...so I'm confused.

If it did launch in October that would be plenty of time for Sony to get a huge number of consoles ready for a Black Friday door buster sale. As of right now we don't know what Sony's actual expected units shipped will be and if they plan on getting additional shipments out prior to launch but before the end of the year.

As of right now it's doable and could be very successful if done right.

NeoTribe3996d ago

All of those games you mentioned would run and look so much better on ps4 so why would you wanna wait?

gokuss1220023996d ago

Take into consideration the occult, and the significance of the number 13, and it does make sense lbs.

OT: I love for this to be the date.

Bolts3995d ago

Buying those games on a dated PS3 when I should spending it on the PS4 is a massive waste of money.

troncoparati3995d ago

Maybe you can do what I'm going to do...play those amazing games in my Ps3 and play other PS4 titles on my PS4. I'm keeping my other consoles so that's a no-brainer to me. What doesn't make sense???

Receiving unit's Mon.. Selling Tue.. -usually how that goes.

Gster3996d ago

All will be revealed next week @ GC

Murad3995d ago

I would hope so unless Sony trolls us there :P

That day, Garfield would stop hating Mondays!

JunioRS1013995d ago

They should release on a Thursday, so that people can call off work on Friday and have a 3 day gamer's weekend.

rainslacker3995d ago

Sounds good to me.:)

Oct 22, makes more sense though. It's a Tuesday, which is when most new games release on PS3/360. Monday can be bad for retail, since they get stuff in the week prior, with Monday's for the occosional late shipment.

Here's hoping to be at GameStop just before midnight on Oct. 21 though.:)


fcuk gamestop.....as usual.

Deadpoolio3995d ago

From what I've heard where I have mine paid off they still aren't even sure if they are going to actually have midnight launches yet....Although they better damn well do it I already have my new PSN ID ready to go I just need my damn PS4

rainslacker3995d ago

Yeah, I haven't heard anything either. However they mentioned they had 24 pre-orders in about 2 weeks after the reveal. My store doesn't often do midnight releases though. So I have my fingers crossed.

If not no biggie. Will be there at 10am. Have two coming from Amazon as well.

Themba763995d ago

thats right before my birthday which is the 22nd

blind-reaper3995d ago (Edited 3995d ago )

OF COURSE, IT IS MY BIRTHDAY!! LOL (interesting november 17 2006 was my mother's birthday and the day my niece was born, and it was the day the PS3 was released)
