[color=#000000][font=Arial][size=3]While Sony Corp. wants to be very open about the PlayStation 4 video game console to attract maximum attention and get positive image for the brand, the company remains tight-lipped over a number of aspects. One of such aspects is whether the firm actually will introduce the PS4 globally, or only in Japan this year. According to a GameStop exec, the PS4 will be launched worldwide in 2013. However, the company will unlikely meet the initial demand.[/size][/font][/color]

Doubt it, it will probably launch in Japan and US Nov-Dec, Europe Feb-March, EU always gets screwed over.

makes sense to release this year. You don't build hype this early if you intend to ship early 2014. I just hope no backwards compatibility for PS3 games doesn't hurt sales. Especially considering GTAV is releasing a couple of months before...

That said, I'll need to see features (and games) before deciding to upgrade to a PS4 from my PS3.

There is no such thing as "AMD Fusion". They dropped it last year already.

Also Sony said before that PS4 will be available this year holidays so why is this news?

Not likely. Sony's new strategy is much, much more global. The release won't be more than a few weeks apart (I think).

First hint at a global release, it's not usually global.

I wouldn't expect this when Europe has such a strong PS3 following, but we'll see.

I think they have no choice to actually release it in a week interval if they actually want to take over Xbox this time. Shortages shouldn't be a problem on AMD's part but could only be on Sony's part (AMD still can use GloFo and TMSC when they really need 2 foundries, not really sure which one are they using for PS4 APUs anyway, I'm guessing TMSC?) But time will tell.

Also if I may ask nicely please fix that Fusion part in the original article, it doesn't exist and people get confused by it sometimes. They (AMD) are referring to them as APU's or HSA (the later is said very little, mostly it's APU). :)

I will be preordering it pretty much as soon as one can do so. I am an early adopter, have no issues at all saying that or spending the money (thankfully), so I plan on having it on launch, whenever that may be.

I'm actually a little excited for the PS4 but I'll have to wait till E3 and the console launch to see what the PS4 will be in its entirety

I used to be an X-bot but PS3 really won me over with its stronger catalogue of exclusive IPs, can't wait to see what Naughty Dog can do with PS4 and I'll be getting one on day one.

Wow, you guys really do get screwed over. I know for many releases of software and hardware, Europe sees delays, but I didn't think they were that substantial with game consoles. :/

Hopefully, they are able to get some portion of Europe along the same release for the NA and Japan.

I don't see why it needs to be fixed.

Don't think it has been announced yet.

I'll get mine next year sometime. I like to wait a little while before jumping in and buying stuff straight away.

I'd like to get it at launch but I imagine supplies will be shot for some time.

That is another reason :p. I cannot be bothered fighting crowds and I don't really pre-order things.
