Many journalists and analysts expect Sony to announce a finalized launch date for the PlayStation 4 during Gamescom 2013 next week.
And now, the company has all but confirmed that we'll get exactly that. As revealed at the UK PlayStation site , it seems Sony will disclose their "release plans" for the new console.
We can also expect updates for the PS3 and Vita as well, and we're all hoping that that includes a price drop announcement for the slick – yet under-appreciated and under-supported – portable. The PlayStation conference will take place Tuesday, August 20 at 6 p.m. BST; remember, Gamescom is in Cologne, Germany. We're sure the event will be live-streamed in multiple locations, so tune in to learn about "the future of all things PlayStation."
So, if you had to pick a launch date for the PS4, what would it be? End of October? Mid-November? Not until December?
