Playstation 4 to launch October 21st 2013

Image
Conformation at Gamescom next week?

A mod-verified posted on NeoGAF posted the details, suggesting that he comes from a retail background and was privy to the PS4's release date.

"Our internal product release schedule from head office dropped yesterday and on Oct 21st an unnamed Sony console will be launched,"

The release schedules the retailer was sent "are for internal use only, designed to allow us time to create our instore merch plans".

He then added that if the launch date for a product is not yet known then it is just marked as TBA. The fact that a date was included suggests that, if true, this could indeed be the PS4's release date.

The date is only ever added "when we have received confirmation of said date from the product company".

We shall see soon enough.


From our point of view we have said October before as Watch Dogs that has been shown constantly running on PS4 is due at the end of October and Assassins Creed is another big game.

Playstation 4 launching November 1st in the UK?

Image
According to Blockbuster it is.

A big sale is going on in Blockbuster in the UK and while picking up PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale I was offered the chance of a launch console due to hit the UK on November 1st 2013.

Strangely enough I was not offered a chance to pre-order the Xbox one.

Do Blockbuster know something we don't?

Dragon's Crown sells 300,000 in three days!

Image
Dragon's Crown the PS Vita and PS3 RPG brawler has really taken off in Japan. In just three days The PS3 game has sold over 110,000 while the Vita is close behind with over 70,000. Look out for a spike in Vita sales.


The game is like an updated brawler from the past that has a look of Streets of Rage etc but it's got solid RPG elements built in. What's more it has online co-op. For anyone that's not seen the game, it's like a stunning painting in motion, quite stunning on the PS Vita.


You can take a look at the game here.

The game hits stateside on the 6th next week while in Europe we will get the game in two months or so. E-bay is your best bet or PlayAsia. You can get it from Amazon on both Vita and PS3 here.


See the game in motion.

Monster Hunter Frontier G for Playstation 3.

Are we getting close to a Vita game?

Monster Hunter Frontier G will come to Playstation 3 this year on November 20th as a free download. You can then pay-to-play month to month.

Everyone suspected this game would come to PS3 at some point but surely cross play with Vita is a must? Or maybe Capcom are still quite happy to shun it's loyal Playstation hand-held gamer fans?
