Ps4pre-order

While we in South Africa are still a bit bitter about the lack of a local release date for the Xbox One, spare a thought for the poor Japanese – who won’t see the PlayStation 4 until 2014.

In a press conference today, Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 will be released in Japan on February 22, 2014 – which, the astute of you might have noticed, is later than our own local PS4 release date of December 6 this year.

The console will be available without the  PS4 Eye camera for ¥39,980 ($401/R4018). A special “Limited Pack” for those who buy on or around release date will  includes console, controller, download voucher for Knack. They’ll also be selling a bundle that including the camera will be on sale for ¥43,980 ($442/R4420).

Funny stuff; If Microsoft actually makes a push to release their system in Japan this year, they could get a next-gen leg up on the competition in its home territory.

      Maybe because they believe the Japanese will buy PS4 irrespective of when it’s released there, but getting to market first in more contested regions will give them a leg up over the Bone.

      Shouldn’t you be in school learning a few things atm? Grammar, culture and a dash of charm before nap time would go a long way.

        Annihilating a few hundred thousand Japanese people will do that to any future trade prospects.
