Although I'm not sure that's the best source how about a link? It's seems unlikely it'll be that late. They'll miss the Black Friday Sales.


 

Why would black friday sales matter for a console release? It would not be offered at a discount.


It's the biggest shopping day of the year, that's why.

 


I'm glad someone gets it. It has nothing to do with discounts. It has everything to do with sheer number of people in the stores on that day.

Does not matter if its the biggest shopping day, after the initial shipment of pre ordered consoles are gone there wont be any back on the shelves for awhile maybe up to a month until production can catch up with demand. There may be a few scattered consoles here and there after launch but not enough to impact black Friday as far as people flooding to the stores to get one. The demand for these is huge they don't need black Friday to hype them more or get people in the store to buy them.

Alot of stores have a placeholder date for 12/31/13, obviously thats not the actual release date but I just got an email from Best Buy that the release date has been changed to 11/30/13, take it with a grain of salt though.

 

Here's someone else I found

That's b/c we know its Nov, and Nov 30th is the last day of that month so saying it is released on the last day of the month covers them in case it is released sooner. If they said Nov 1st and it was not released until the 18th then that would **bleep** off a lot of people.

 

Watch Dogs comes out on the 19th I would expect the release of the PS4 to be some where close to that date.

Yeah I too think it'll drop pre black friday. The want it sold out by Christmas to show its popularity & drive demand. I believe pre orders & day 1's will do that. But having the 1 annual day where folks line up to spend big money as a contingency plan ain't bad.

Why are you guys obsessed with black friday? The PS3 released on Nov 11th way before black friday. Black friday has nothing to do with when it is launched just as long as it is during the holiday season. They want the hype for christmas not for black friday.

 

The PS2 was released on Oct 26th. Neither Sony console had anything to do with black friday, why in the world do any of you think it even matters now?

Sc gray fox, dude read what I wrote. They want it sold out buy Christmas. I AGREE CHRISTMAS IS THE FOCUS. They put it out before black Friday as a contingency plan, back up if you will. So the 3 consoles they don't sell day 1 gets swooped up the day after thanksgiving.

The PS2 was released March 4th, 2000.  Though yeah, I agree they will launch the PS4 before Black Friday.
