PS4 SA news

Sony’s PlayStation 4 has been delayed from its originally planned 6 December 2013 launch date in South Africa, a Ster Kinekor representative has confirmed to MyGaming.

The PS4 console was originally pegged with a recommended selling price of R6,299. Pricing will not be affected unless there is a drastic change in currency exchange rates, Ster Kinekor said.

Ster Kinekor would not confirm a new launch date, but said they are striving to ensure the console is available in time for Christmas 2013.

The launch date change will affect all retailers in South Africa that procure their PS4 consoles from Ster Kinekor.

However, BT Games has set their new PS4 launch date for 13 December, hosting a midnight launch of the PS4 on 12 December 2013.

When queried about the date, a BT Games representative confirmed that the launch dates were correct and that customers looking to attend the midnight launches would have to begin queueing up at 9PM on Thursday 12 December.

BT Games is additionally delaying releasing information about the console launch in order to confirm final bundle contents and launch pricing.
