Huh? Pretty much all media(movies, games, CDs) release on Tuesdays with a few exceptions. I know I bought several PS 3 games on their release date which was on a Tuesday and I would say most PS 4 games will probably continue the Tuesday release date.

Out of EVERY game, I have ever bought when it released, for PS2, 3 and 4, and Xbox 360.... they all released Friday. Unless otherwise specified.

Infamous: Second Son releases March 21st, which is a Friday.
COD Ghosts, officially released on a Tuesday November 5th, but most retailers broke street date for a friday release.
Hitman Absolution, released on a Wednesday.

Like the examples above, release dates CAN be different. But the commonality is known that games usually release on a Friday.


Movies and music ALWAYS releases Tuesday unless otherwise specified, in which case they would either release Monday or Wednesday. They hardly EVER release at the end of the week or on a weekend.


Furiously Chaosing

The only game that i've bought recently that had an official Friday release was The Last Of Us. GTA V and Beyond Two Souls both had Tuesday release dates last year and both Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed IV released on a Tuesday for PS 3 and I think they were even available for purchase for PS 4 before the system actually launched. I think it really just depends on maybe the game/developer.
