Sometimes we take for granted how lucky we are. The Sony PlayStation 4 will see a release in the US on the 15th of November. Then it will head to Europe on November 29th. Sadly, PlayStation gamers in India may not get the PS4 this year. They may have to wait a little while.
A 2013 release of the console for their market is looking very unlikely. Sony Computer Entertainment’s country manager of India, Atindriya Bose, says that the initial plan was to launch the console about a month after the launch in Europe, near the end of the year. However, according to Bose, “That’s the part that is being evaluated. So [I] cannot confirm 2013 immediately as that is almost within a month of the EU launch date. With country logistics and certain regulatory requirements, it looks a pretty tight call.”
PlayStation gamers in India must be pretty sad right about now, but it will be worth the wait when they do get it.
