PlayStation 4’s Launch Date Will Be Announced at Gamescom
Today I must serve to you one of my most hated forms of news – an announcement of an announcement. Before images of Xzibit’s shit-eating grin pop into your head (too late), let’s get this over with.
Sony has confirmed that they plan on sharing the PlayStation 4’s ‘release plans’ with the gaming masses at Germany’s Gamescom on August 20th, 1:00 P.M. EDT. Updates on the PS3 and PS Vita are also planned but not snazzy enough to deserve a headline.
A few weeks back, listings on Toys R Us’ UK site dated Sony’s next-gen console for December 13th while the Xbox One saw a November 29th release date. The big box retailer backed up the listings as legitimate but their partners, Sony and Microsoft, did not. What I’m trying to say is that if you have a serious addiction to betting on mundane things, your opportunity has presented itself.
So. Which console will hit retail first? More importantly, with the dawn of the next-gen upon us – GET BACK TO YOUR CORNER, WII U – which console will you folks be getting?
