The PlayStation 4 will be introduced globally in 2013, retailer GameStop’s executive vice president of strategy business and brand development Michael Hogan has said.
The statement calms fears that the console will arrive in Europe in 2014.
“We know that Sony will introduce the PlayStation 4 globally in 2013, but we are still waiting to see what Microsoft’s final plans are,” Hogan said, speaking at a conference call with financial analysts.
Sony has a history of staggered launches for its PlayStation consoles. Historically, consoles arrived in Japan and North America first, with the European launch delayed by a few months.
