After giving Microsoft a burn that would require an opinion from Mr Freeze, Andrew House revealed that the Playstation 4 will arrive in 32 countries. North America gets it first on November 15, while Europe receives stock from November 29.

      We’ll be under the European banner for that launch. Start saving!

        Awesome, getting my yearly 13th cheque on 23/11/2013, so the cheque has found a good use this year, must not spend it in those few days on some other crap, πŸ˜›

          I hope this is wrong. I seriously hope so.

            Yeah, puts a damn dampener on everything. On the bright side, it does mean missing out on all the frustrating launch issues.

            On the other hand, it’s nice to be reminded that we’re essentially part of the arsehole of the world. Constantly neglected and always paying a premium because of geography.

          Jim remember SCE Europe still thinks we are a British colony. SA always got the Playstation on the UK launch date (if I remember correctly we wern’t on the l list for the PS3 as well but got it with the UK launch). Unfortunately we also get the UK version with the UK price converted to rand.

      yeah actually think that gaming websites shouldn’t do that… always makes me a bit wary of bias in the articles.

        Well, to be fair, they did the same kind of thing with Sony for E3, this year. So, at least they’re not just getting from one source.

          i dont have any worries about lazygamer.net being biased but just as a general rule i think its a bad idea, especially this year with the console war raging at the moment

            On the other hand, access to big events like Gamescom, E3 etc. are nearly impossible for South African game journos, unless someone sponsors them.

            Indeed.

      They are sponsored by MS for the reporting at GamesCon. When E3 was running LG approached both MS and SONY asking if anyone was keen, SONY responded so they got a chance then. Nothing to do with bias, has to do with paying the bills.

      I hope it just means BT games get stealth copies via the UK. πŸ™ Now I’ll just end up spending my money on prostitutes and booze. And it will be all your fault Sony! All your fault, because you didn’t release in South Africa on November 29rd.
