Today is an exciting day to be a gamer, especially a PlayStation gamer, as it looks like Sony is ready to announce it’s next PlayStation, most likely named, the PlayStation 4. Sony has sent out invites to investors and media for a PlayStation day on the February 20th in New York, and it’s almost definite that the PS4 will be announced. But what does the timing of this announcement say about the release date of the device?
In 2011, Sony announced the PlayStation Vita at a similar event early in the year, and made an intention to release the device globally by the end of the year. It came out in December 2011 in Japan, but just missed the date in other territories. This time round, Sony won’t want to make the same mistake. We’re guessing Sony will want to release the PS4, at least in North America, in November. We’re hoping it comes out on November 12th, as in the US date format, this would be 11.12.13, and is a very memorable date.
If it comes out with a Call of Duty title on the console on the same day, then sales may shoot through the roof. As I said, it’s an exciting time to be a gamer.
