    That would be crazy funny if they did that! Looking back, the only Playstation that released in November (in the US at least) was the PS3, the PS2 came out here in October and the PS1 came out in September, so maybe Oct 21st is more realistic than I am thinking!

    Looking forward to gamescon! I'm ready to know when I get to get my PS4 action on! I'm hoping October but realistically think November.

    I guessed November, seems like the most logical release date, especially with what we know about the Playstation 4, am i right?

    I would of course want it to be October, but have a strong feeling that it will be the second Tuesday in November.
    Let hope I'm wrong and it's as early as possible.

    November feels both realistic and like a good tactical month for the release, IMO.

    I'm going to toss out Nov 16th for $#@!s and giggles. As long as it's before Black Friday I don't really give a rats ass when. I seriously doubt we'll have an Oct release date based on everything we've heard and everything that's been done (increase of pre-order allocations, slip-ups by Jack Tretton mentioning November, implication of at least one game being able to transfer game saves from PS3 to PS4 that are launching at the end of October, ...)

    I'd be pleasantly surprised for any earlier release date but I'm very doubtful.

    I have no knowledge but I would try to release a couple weeks before Black Friday so that their second shipments of consoles (after the launch ones) would be there through that weekend. If your releasing the week of Black Friday then really those consoles are already purchased and you have none for the big sale. If it all possibly I would think Sony would release it as early as possible when they will have the launch consoles ready. That means if they have enough to fill those pre-orders and shipped and there by the end of Oct. you do it. I would imagine we would see a very very late Oct. release or first half of Nov. That would allow a few weeks for Sony to stock up enough consoles to in a few weeks to meet a holiday release...and weekly shipments thereafter.

    The more I keep thinking about it the more I bet they do release in October, the only reason the PS3 released in November was because of low yields on the CELL and a shortage on the Blu-ray diodes!

    The PS4 is releasing in November. Unless Sony throws a curve ball.

    Sega pulled that with the Saturn and it backfired. Developers wouldn't be too pleased if Sony made such an announcement.

    Sega's was a little different, they never really announced it was coming out early, I remember walking into Software Etc. and being like 'WTF?! When the hell did the Saturn come out?'

    Hah, Software Etc., I haven't heard that name in forever. Back in the days of the floppy disk games, back when you could negotiate with clerks there and at Electronics Boutique over the worth of a return\trade-in.

    Sony has been very aggressive with the PS4 and I doubt they are only going to release a couple of days before the Xbox. I am sure they will most likely release either towards the end of October. or very beginning of November. Sony has been showing no mercy with the PS4, I don't expect them to lighten up on the release date either.

    Hopefully they have something left to reveal. It seems like they have alrwady played a lot of cards.

    Besides more ps4 info, games, I really want some new vita info badly.

    IIRC wasn't the Saturn announced and released in the same week? The PS4 has been announced since February so Sony could really release it anytime they wanted and pull a "releasing next week" at gamescom but it's extremely unlikely.

    Oh yes! if SONY wanted to obliterate the Xbox One they would finish gamescon with "You're PS4 will be ready by the end of the week."

    Uhm... You're thinking of the US release of the Sega Saturn which had already been on the market in Japan for almost 1yr. Also, this was in the early days of the internet and without people snooping the FCC filings w/ websites, blogs and forums reporting the information out like a wildfire.

    This was slightly before the time of mass pre-ordering of systems and having them shipped to your door on day one. Organization and staging is completely different for launches today compared to back then.
