While Sony are yet to officially confirm a release date or price for the PlayStation 4 that hasn’t stopped the CFO of the worlds largest gaming retailer, Gamestop, stating that it will in fact be released this year.
According to SeekingAlpha the Chief Financial Officer, Robert A. Lloyd, stated the following during an investors call
“We know that Sony will introduce the PlayStation 4 globally in 2013, but we are still waiting to see what Microsoft’s final plans are”
“We have scenarios with one console introduction, as well as with two. Even a single launch in 2013 will drive double-digit console growth in 2014; and two launches, as noted above, would likely drive the console category north of 20% growth”
Seeing that Gamestop have business operations in Australia we can reasonably believe that if they are going to get it at the same time as America then so would we as we are also a PAL territory. Microsoft are biding their time but don’t be surprised if we hear their plans in the next few weeks.
