PlayStation 4 Japanese Release Date Announced

PS4-Japan-February-2014

We already know that the PlayStation 4 will be coming state side on November 15th and over the pond to Europe on November 29th. At this mornings Sony press conference that saw the announcement of Vita TV, the release date for the PS4 in japan was also revealed. Sony will release the PlayStation 4 on February 22nd, 2014 in Japanese territories, nearly three months later than in North America.

It’s realistic to assume that the Vita TV announcement had some impact on Sony’s decision to launch the PS4 two months into the new year in Japan. If they’d kept it on schedule with the North American release of the PS4, the Vita TV would literally release the day before the next gen PlayStation, effectively siphoning sales from each other.
