Another day and another release date rumour for the PlayStation 4.
This time the date of October 21st comes from a post on NeoGAF, where a user has posted that the store he works for, which remains unnamed, has received a release schedule pinning that date as release day for Sony’s next gen machine.
This rumour appears to have some weight as that user is mod-verified on GAF, which means that the mods have checked the poster out and have seen enough proof that what he posts is information that could indeed be legitimate.
This would mean the PS4 would release before the One, taking advantage of the small time frame to appeal to the mainstream audience. We’re more than likely to get a solid release date for both next gen consoles next week at Gamescom, where both Sony and Microsoft are hosting conferences.
Personally I hope its release is a week later than this rumoured date, purely because I’ll be on holiday and no one will be home to take the delivery.
