The PlayStation 4 Might Have A Global Launch
During the PS4 announcement Sony revealed that their new console would be on shelves by the end of the year. What Sony failed to mention was which shelves they were referring to, with past experiences suggesting that the next-gen console would release in Japan first and later around the rest of the world. However, according to American retailer Gamestop, the PS4 will have a global release.
During an earnings call yesterday executive vice president Mike Hogan claimed that Sony’s new console would receive a global release, or at least that’s what the retailer is planning for.

“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.”
The PlayStation 3 releases in Japan in late 2006, with the console only reaching European markets in early 2007. If this rumour is in fact true, we could see the PS4 and possibly the next Xbox on local shelves in just a few short months. Exciting isn’t it?
While Sony still has some cards to show regarding the PS4, Microsoft is yet to make their next-gen move. Apparently we should look forward to a once-off event this month that will introduce the next Xbox to the world. Again, all just rumours.
