An unassuming page on the UK PlayStation website has seemingly confirmed what many of us were thinking: that gamescom would be a rather nice destination for Sony to announce the PlayStation 4's launch date. "We'll kick off the show at 18:00 BST on 20 August 2013 with a briefing to media on our release plans for PlayStation 4, as well as updates on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita," reads the site.
The press conference itself will be streamed live and we'll of course be in attendance. And by "we," I mean just Dale North, because he's headed to Cologne alone. Poor Dale. Frankly, as much as I want to hear more about the new console, I'm not exactly worried about it, at this point. The Vita, on the other hand, I'm not so sure about. Restore my faith, Sony.
