European electronics chain Media Markt may have let accidentally revealed Sony’s release date for the PS4. A post on reputable gaming forum, Neogaf, shows a photograph of a poster revealing the release date as the 13th of November 2013. Other members have also claimed to have seen the same poster in Media Markt across the continent.
Media Markt are one of the biggest media and entertainment chains across continental Europe and it’s entirely possible that they’ve been included in Sony’s secret circle when it comes to classified information. Whether there’s been some kind of miscommunication between the stores and the Media Markt head office is unclear, but if they are legit then it’s probably time Sony came out with the date officially or at least discredited it as a hoax.
Sony has responded to queries from the press by saying “No further announcements/comments to make at this time. PlayStation 4 is launching this holiday season.”
By neither affirming or denying the speculation, it’s safe to assume that they’re real.
