PS4: 2013 launch confirmed by newspaper ad, in-store advertising begins in Europe

Friday, 24th May 2013 09:41 GMT By Dave Cook

PlayStation 4 will indeed launch in 2013, according to a newspaper advert published today, and some shops in Europe have already started advertising the system.

The image was snapped from the pages of The Metro newspaper by Future’s James Jarvis, and the line at the bottom confirms a 2013 release.

You can also see the TESCO advert a NeoGAF used snapped at his local shop below.

Thanks MCV.

    I very certain this falls in line with what Sony said the PS4 will launch in one region in EU and that is the UK.

    I still can’t believe Sony and MS are finally going head to head during a console launch. To this day, the first one has always had the advantage. Let the games begin!

    Sony haven’t even started announcing their stance on allways-on, PSN+ subscription costs etc. The advantage they had at their press conference was that they had alot of time to spend announcing games. Bad thing about that is that they’re probably spending alot of time during E3 announcing social features, allways-on/pre-owned fees and PSN subs. Microsoft allready got through this, and will have more time for games at E3.

    After E3 i’m sure Sony fanboys will be raging, as the two consoles will be more similar than what people think, both spec wise and feature-wise.

    @LB,
    Where did you hear that? I am sure it will be US, Eu this year. One region could be anything, it was never said as one country.

    @7,
    Nope. Never confirmed that. News to me.

    PS4 is already more powerfull than the tvbox, it’s just that you xbox fanboys haven’t realized that yet.. Xbox didn’t say that they did not have always on feature, they could say that at E3 Sony would never go for something like that they are not that stupid, xbox is literally fucked, their stock dropped PS4 stock went up all know that, and hey?! It is Sony we are talking about ffs high quality stuff unlike some others :).. You will see at E3

    How about games, Shmony?
    Sony has the advantage now, but without gmes they can suck it with their box.

    I’m planning on buying the PS4, Xbox and a new PC with a maxwell card during the next year, so you can classify me as a fanboy of all 3.

    Also, in terms of power, PS4 games may end up looking slightly better or have a slightly higher framerate, but as an average gamer, you won’t notice any difference unless you’re running side-by-side comparisons.

    Multiplat games will almost certainly look identical on both systems.

    @17 be careful. You might melt his brain with all that common sense! On topic: I’m pumped for this! I can’t wait for e3, hopefully we get some clarification from ms & sony so I can make the decision of “what to buy first” this gen. I plan on eventually grabbing all 3 systems.

    to much xboxfanboys here, even when it is article after article posted at vg247 or other sites. about what crap microsoft are gonna do, they still have ass up and face down… you cant expect much of this kind of people, that have payed out their ass for something called ‘xboxlive gold’ for 13 years. while the rest of us with a common sense have not payed a dime and still played online…
