Rate the rumour: Naughty Dog teasing PS4 release date


Let's start a new feature. How many times do we see rumours on the internet which seem to make no sense at all? Quite often I'd say, so it's time to post up the most outlandish and ask you, our reader to rate how likely they are to become reality.

This game is quite simple, all you need to do is rate rumour in the comments section below based on how likely you feel it is to become reality.

Here's the scale we'll use:

1 - No Chance
2 - Unlikely
3 - Hard to Tell
4 - Possibly
5 - Definitely

So let's kick things off.

Naughty Dog Hint at PS4 release date

Today's rumour comes from The Last of Us and Naughty Dog, with one site claiming that a date which appears within the latest gameplay trailer could in fact relate to the release date of the PlayStation 4.

The date in question is October 17, 2013, although it doesn't really explain why it says 8.00pm on the board - do consoles usually launch at 8pm? If anything we'd probably say it would point to some sort of announcement, if there is something to be read into this at all.

We have posted an image of this alleged PS4 date below.

So how likely do you think it is that this rumour will come true?

2 - Unlikely Do consoles usually launch at Thursdays?

1 - No chance. That's a pretty big leap from image in a current gen game to next gen release. Yeah, complete BS

Unlikely, I won't say no chance as stranger things have happened.

1- No chance. I can't see a console being released on a Thursday and PS4 is more likely to be released closer to Christmas. Late November or beginning of December.

1- No chance. Just looks like a random date and a rumour made from it.

2 - It may be as a prep as to be prepared for the console release date on the Friday, hence the '8pm' to get to bed early to get up and buy one. But I doubt it, really.

1 - This is clearly the Xbox 360 Two release date

2 - its not likely that this will be the release date BUT Naughty Dog do have previous for teasing upcoming releases in different games - remember they teased The Last of Us in Uncharted 3!!

2 - more likely to be the release date of the new Jak and Daxter game they are secretly working on!

4. Looks legit.

Amherst is anagram of Hamster and Daxter does resemble an overgrown Hamster. J&D PS4 game I'd guess

2 - Although Unlikely to be the date, it does give a ball park as to when it will be perhaps the launch of the console will be a few days after i.e 22nd October and there will be a build up to it.

Well, they did tease TLOU in a well hidden newspaper in Uncharted 3, maybe it's their PS4 launch project? :P

That's an interesting idea, opt1mus76. Either way it'll probably be some kind of next-gen reveal from ND. Uncharted 4 anyone?

3 Hard to tell. It's a bit far-fetched but on the other hand they have used messages as such before. But for something as monumental as the PS4 launch, I daresay this is the case. October will be a perfect time to launch, however. Get awareness up ahead of Thanksgiving etc. No use releasing in late November; too close to that particular holiday. Plus, an October release will certainly catch Microsoft by surprise. The problem is the fact that they have Beyond and possible Gran Turismo arriving within that window. If I were Sony, I would push for that October launch, providing it doesn't cause any launch problems. And the SuperBowl is nowhere near the Champions League.

Oh it'll be something new from Naughty Dog. Maybe Uncharted: Drake's Lost Pants for the Vita. Or maybe Uncharted 6: It's Time To D-D-D-DUEL! I do like the idea of it being a new Jak and Daxter.
Robichoico 2 years ago
By the ND game series logic it's time for Uncharted racing game with shooting...
