If I had to guess I think they are just estimating a sometime-in-November release date. Just wait for gamescom and we will know for sure.

Third one to agree - it seems a generic placeholder.

They could actually do it something like 12/31/2099 lol

I agree.

Most places are just using 'placeholder' dates to sell the system. No one really knows yet.

That's a placeholder date. The likelihood of a console being released after Black Friday is ridiculous.

Honestly, if this is a story then Amazon is lying to consumers because they're saying that Infamous Second Son is coming out this year.

Today AllGames.com (linked above) reports that Sony's PS4 / PlayStation 4 release date of November 30, 2013 has been revealed by a kiosk in a local Best Buy retail store.

Previously, Sony stated that the PS4 / PlayStation 4 release date would be officially unveiled at Gamescom in Cologne from August 21-25, 2013.

Below are the details, to quote: "Exactly when will the PS4 be released?

The answer lies in what I would describe as an impressive pre-order display touch screen system located at a particular Best Buy I went to recently. Using the touch screen, you can pre-order video games and/or the new video game systems.

While I was at Best Buy, using the touch screen, I decided, on a whim, to select the video game consoles category since I was curious as to what would be displayed for the PS4. I touched the screen that showed a picture of the PS4 - when lo and behold - I saw it! There before me on the big screen was the release date for the PS4.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so take a look and you will see what I saw as the availability, release, or launch date for the PS4. Rather than me telling you the date - check out the visual below. Pre-order touch screen at Best Buy shows availability date for the PS4 as 11/30/2013.

There you have it - practically in black and white - that the release date for the PS4 is 11/30/2013. In my opinion, it is beneficial to know the specific release date for the PS4 for planning purposes - however; there is a caveat. If you are interested in pre-ordering the PS4, unlike Amazon or other places that do not require a deposit, you will have to pay a $25.00 deposit if you pre-order from Best Buy.

The PS4 will be available on 11/30/2013, and will require a $25.00 deposit if you pre-order from Best Buy."
