I'm VERY disappointed that they aren't making the effort for a worldwide release, or even in the same week.

Wow we could actually see both next-gen consoles releasing within a week of each other, or even in the same week. Though now Sony have announced their release date, I bet MS will launch theirs a week earlier.

Hmmm... that's about a month later than I was hoping for, but I guess an October launch would have meant half the launch titles wouldn't have been ready. Still... lol at the suggestions of a Europe delay to 2014 right now :)

I reckon MS will go for a worldwide release. I wouldnt have bothered if it was a few days with the whole tuesday friday thing going on but 2 weeks is rubbish.

Yeah, shame Europe has to wait 2 weeks after NA to get the PS4, I thought PlayStation was bigger in Europe than in NA.

I'm excited by this news, but still feel uncertain about shopto's PS4 stock availability, as online, Sony have stated they are keeping stock for brick and mortar shops, so where does this leave online firms like shopto? How many does shopto have on pre-order, and have Sony told them how many they have been allocated?

Bah, 29th? Not happy with that. Any other weekend but that one. I resent the fact we are AGAIN getting it later than America. But the problem with that weekend for me personally is my sister is back after 18 months traveling on the 29th... So I have to go to Heathrow and pick her up and will be spending as much time as possible with her that weekend. My sister is way more important than the PS4 but it's REALLY annoying as it won't be until the following weekend when I can sit down with it properly.

@ zrerz - Yeah, this still concerns me slightly. I pre-ordered ages ago but I look forward to that email confirming I have a launch machine from Shopto. Then I'll pay it off!

I wouldnt be surprised to see microsoft sneaking in a week before them now and having a worldwide one (well the ones that it is getting released in.) I must say if I was on the edge I would still be gearing more towards my xbox one.

So, ShopTo, when do we get those juicy bundle packs to change our pre-orders to? ;-) Just kidding. Great date and glad to see the rumours of a pre-November launch were unfounded. And one day after pay day? Think I may spend some Christmas-money-for-family on accessories. Games are more important than family, right?

I remember when it was several months, minimum, between countries, 2 weeks is nothing.

Be honest... I'm pretty damn f**ked off over the two week delay... MS come out with a free game to everyone in Europe, and Sony drop that steamy one on us...

I know it is only two weeks so it could be worse, My reasoning of the one over the PS4 is the exclusives on the xbox for launch appeal to me more, the majority of my friends are on the xbox as well where i only have two or three on the PS3. Dont get me wrong i am still getting both.

Are people seriously complaining about 2 weeks between territories for release? Look at the months between the territories for vita and think yourselves lucky that we ain't waiting until 2014. Seriously, it's two weeks. Get over it.

David, we take the piss because for a "40year old man" your sentence structure is abysmal, your spelling and grammar are atrocious and you wander into a forum and call people a bunch of sad cunts. You window licking douche canoe.

http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2013/08/gamescom_2013_say_hello_to_the_new_magma_red_and_wave_blue_dualshock_4_controllers are the controllers coming out with the PS4 release date in Europe. I genuinely am not a fan mind. I loved the blue controller on PS3, but it seems to be too much black on this one? I may get the blue one mind as there is less chance of leaving it anywhere without getting it back lol

I'm happy with this. In fact I had to double take when I saw it. November 29th. Good birthday present for myself I think. I was expecting October but I'm somewhat relieved to see it being November. I'll have plenty of room to move around with when it comes to saving.

I said it would be the end of November. If they did not have so many preorders it probably would have been sooner, but they obviously want to fulfil as many preorders as possible. Now they have 3 weeks to fulfil just under 4 months (Aug 6th to Nov 29th the period of no guarantee at launch) of preorders

Those disappointed in EU release look on the bright side of things. US is finding all the crappy bug in Software, So Sony can fix it or at less begin working on a fix for EU release.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
