PlayStation 4 release date rumors claimed it is going to be ahead of the release of Xbox One.

 

Ardent gamers are still very curious about PlayStation 4 release date but Sony is still keeping its mum about it. However, there are recent rumors emerging that the PlayStation 4 release date may be ahead of the Microsoft Xbox One market launch.

Excitement over the PlayStation 4 release date was triggered once again when a German retailer let out a posted depicting a probable launching of Sony's upcoming console in the market. Neogaf, a retail partner of Sony that covers the European countries have posted a promotional posted which shows that the PlayStation 4 release date is on November 13. According to a report from States Chronicle, "Sony had forbidden the display of this poster by all its retailers." However, if this is accurate, it would mean that the PS4 will have a two-week head-start in sales over the rival console, Microsoft Xbox One.

 

But nothing is actually definite yet with regards to Sony PlayStation 4 release date, as well as with the Xbox One since the maker of the latter, Microsoft, has been recently making last minute changes to its products. For instance, a few weeks ago, Microsoft decided to change its policy about used games and requirement for continuous internet connection. Thus, immediate changes to the announced November 27 release date is also possible.

Meanwhile, Gadget Gestures reported that Sony is more likely to announce information about PlayStation 4 release date during Gamescom 2013, which is an annual gaming event held in Germany. Gamescom is similar to US' Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 that happened on June, wherein lots of gaming information and specs of the PS4 has been revealed. But to show importance to Gamescom, Sony most probably reserved a very special announcement for the event, which could be the PlayStation 4 release date.
