Massive grains of salt, ahoy!
Now this is a rumour, a certifiably doubtful possibility and pretty much the most impossible thing in the world but…is the PlayStation 4 going to release on October 21st, rather than the Holiday season?
According to a GAF user Nealand Liquor, “Our internal product release schedule from head office dropped yesterday and on Oct 21st an unnamed Sony console will be launched. Fyi all console revisions like the ps360 slims and Wii Mini were listed as ps360 & wii mini. Previously the wiiu, 3ds and vita were also only listed as Nintendo/Sony Console in the product name column.
“Disclaimer: I just work at a very large retailer, managing the electronics sales force and nothing more. I have nothing to do with purchasing, nation wide merchandising or shipping. I am not trying to play this off as I have connections at Sony, or I am some sort of insider. It’s that just yesterday we received a product release schedule from our head office and I thought this is OT itt. These schedules btw, are for internal use only, designed to allow us time to create our in-store merch plans. If the launch date for a product is unknown, it’s simply marked TBA. The only time a date is ever included is when we have received confirmation of said date from the product company.”
Now what makes this different from all the other rumours? Liquor’s post is mod-verified, which means he’s a credible source. As for whether the rumour itself is true or not is a different thing, but it will be interesting. Does Sony really have the gumption to release the PS4 just before the Xbox One’s November release? We’ll find out in the coming days.
