    Rumour: October 21st Release

    OK lots of gaffers $#@!ing over this date. A mod verified gaffer has posted this. .

    Rumor: Our internal product release schedule from head office dropped yesterday and on Oct 21st an unnamed Sony console will be launched. Fyi all console revisions like the ps360 slims and Wii Mini were listed as ps360 & wii mini. Previously the wiiu, 3ds and vita were also only listed as Nintendo/Sony Console in the product name column.

    Disclaimer: I just work at a very large retailer, managing the electronics sales force and nothing more. I have nothing to do with purchasing, nation wide merchandising or shipping. I am not trying to play this off as I have connections at Sony, or I am some sort of insider. It's that just yesterday we received a product release schedule from our head office and I thought this is OT itt. These schedules btw, are for internal use only, designed to allow us time to create our instore merch plans. If the launch date for a product is unknown, it's simply marked TBA. The only time a date is ever included is when we have received confirmation of said date from the product company.
    Really hope it drops on this date. I'm ready!!

    Seems a bit early, but we'll find out pretty soon as Gamescon is just around the corner.

    I doubt it. I still see early November. They did say "Christmas 2013". October wouldn't quite fall in to that unless they plan to bring the date forward a month or two.

    I really hope so.

    I've honestly been thinking a December release date, which I really hope is not the case, but to me it sounds more realistic. First week of December has been my prediction to be exact. I hope I'm wrong.

    Microsoft have said November 2013 they most likely won't release October.

    They actually said "Holiday 2013". Usually starting thanksgiving in the US but it leaves them room to launch when they want.

    Rumour: October 21st Release

    Just a little update from the same poster.

    Edit:Reading page three right now. Just so everyone knows all I have is our internal release schedule and nothing more. Nothing is cast in stone and things can change (though they rarely do). To clairify the 21st date means the week of. It could launch on the Monday though.

    As I said I am not an insider, just a normal guy. This rumor is not anything but a rumor right now, you guys know just about everything I do now.

    And also for my own privacy and security I won't be answering personal questions. I really don't want to get fired.
    So if true it could launch the week of the 21st



    And an edit to the OP

    Edit: Mod-verified means that this particular gaffer is indeed in the position to receive such knowledge, as has been checked by Bishoptl himself.
    This means it's still a rumor, but it does have a verified source. Nothing more.

    Well, they can always change that should they feel they have to - I don't think they're legally bound to release in that window especially if they can do it earlier?

    Yeah, there is no way they will wait until after Black Friday, that would be a super bad move! I am still sticking with my Nov 13th guess, I have my money on that day...

    Tell me about it - some shops here go overkill by starting to put hints of Christmas decorations as early as late Sep/early OCt.

    We'll find out soon enough, but I suspect that October is just a little too early - especially if they want to meet the purported demand. Mid-to-late November seems a little more believable, especially for Europe.
