Rumor: Sony Announces PS4 Launch Date At Gamescom 2013
Okay, we've got the price. Now we just need an actual launch date for the system.
Thus far, Sony has only confirmed that the PlayStation 4 would launch during "Holiday 2013" this year, which could place the system anywhere between October and December. They didn't reveal an exact date at E3, so when will we get it?
Well, some have theorized we'd have to wait until the Tokyo Game Show in September. But according to European source Gamefront.de citing sources "close to Sony," that release date will actually arrive during Gamescom in late August. That's one of the biggest trade shows in the industry so it's certainly feasible. Gamescom 2013 will be in Cologne and run from August 21 through August 25.
Release date rumors have placed the PS4 at the end of November, while others have said it won't be available until December 13. Guess we'll learn the truth soon enough...
