PS4 Launching Globally This Year, Says GameStop Exec

Still Waiting To Hear From Microsoft

Sony is planning to launch the PS4 globally in 2013, according to GameStop executive vice president Michael Hogan.

Speaking to investors and analysts alongside other company executives on the retailer’s fourth quarter earnings call last week, Hogan said (via Seeking Alpha):

“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.

“We have scenarios with one console introduction, as well as with two. Even a single launch in 2013 will drive double-digit console growth in 2014; and two launches would likely drive the console category north of 20 per cent growth.”

Sony unveiled its new console – without actually showing the console – back in February.
