Last night Sony announced its new console, PS4. They also announced that the console will be available for purchase in Japan and America during this year’s holiday season. However, like always Sony has left the European gamers hanging.
Regarding the launch time of PS4 in Europe this is what Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida had to say in an interview given to Eurogamer:
People in Europe always complain that they’re last even when sometimes some things are exclusive to European consumers.
For us, Europe is an enormously important market. That’s no question. So I hope European consumers can play PS4 as soon as it’s available somewhere, but I’m not making promises.
Keep in mind that historically Europe has always proven to be a late stop for PlayStation consoles. All three of the previous PlayStation consoles were released in Europe months after they were already present in Japan and America.
