PlayStation 4 release may not be global in 2013, details still being 'worked through'

25 February 2013

Responding to a question about whether the PS4 2013 launch window applies to Europe, SCEE's UK managing director, Fergal Gara told Digital Spy that the console will launch this year in “at least” one region, but "exactly what regions, what timing, is being worked through.”

The PlayStation 4 was revealed to the world at the PlayStation Meeting last week where it was revealed the console will launch “this Holiday season”. However, it wasn’t confirmed whether it would be a global launch or restricted to specific territories.

The launch of the PS3 was staggered across the world with Japan launching the console first in 2011, followed shortly after by a U.S. release. Europe had to wait until March the year after to get their hands on Sony’s console.

In the interview, Gara confirmed that specific details on PS4 launch will be revealed at a later date: "Which regions in 2013 - is it all of them, is it some of them? Is there some degree of phasing? We'll reveal that in more detail later but we can't yet," he commented.
