It seems the initially reported date for the local release of the PlayStation 4 could have been an error; according to local videogames purveyor BT Games (via MyGaming), the latest console from Sony will actually be coming a little bit later than we had hoped.

They list a release date instead of December 12, which is when they’ll be hosting their launch party – about a week later than the 6 December date we’d expected. It means you’ll still be play to play your shiny new PS4 games over the holidays, but you’ll have to wait a while before doing so.

None of the other retailers have changed their dates though; CNA,, AWX and Takealot all still have a 6 December launch date listed. Other local game distributors are not aware of any changes.

We’ve reached out to PlayStation distributor Ster Kinekor, who’ve not been able to either deny or confirm the later release date. BT Games, however, has told us that the release date has officially changed.

We’ll let you know more as soon as we do.


Mario dos Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Ster Kinekor Entertainment said “We have received the final global shipping timelines from Sony Computer Entertainment Inc and can confirm that our release dates are aligned with the international retail calendar.”
