PS4 release date listed as November 13 by retailer

The PS4 release date has been teased, with a specialist European retailer listing the next-gen console and Xbox One rival with a November 13 arrival.

While Sony has yet to tie down the final date of arrival for its PS3 follow-on, the Amsterdam chain of retailer Media Markt has listed a November 13 PS4 release date, a launch that would see the console land within days of the November Xbox One release date already confirmed by Microsoft.

Update: PS4 Release Date Confirmed: Console to hit UK on November 29

To date Sony has stated only that the PS4 release date will be held during the “2013 holiday season.”

Although it is unclear where Media Markt has pulled this mid-November console launch from, Sony has suggested that the claims are nothing more than “pure speculation.” Last week during its E3 press conference Sony announced a £349 PS4 price but failed to comment on the console’s arrival.

Remaining quiet on when the eagerly awaited PS4 release date will be held, Sony has, however suggested that the next-gen arrival will not see any PS3 price cuts introduced.

Discussing the possibility of a PS3 price drop, Fergal Gara, Managing Direction for Sony Computer Entertainment UK stated: “There’s no plans as yet.”

He added: “The PlayStation 3 is a system where it hasn’t been particularly easy to get the costs down. We continue to look at opportunities, there may or may not be any more, I genuinely can’t answer to that.”

Further discussing the PS3 pricing, Gara stated: “It will certainly be a more keenly priced machine in relative to PlayStation 4. It will sit there as a viable entry level machine for years to come. It will be different by territory as to how long its life is. There’s still a lot of love for PS3.”
