SCEJA Press Conference 2013Just yesterday Sony announced the release date of their much-anticipated next generation console (it’s November 15 in the US and November 29 in Europe, just in case you haven’t heard). They also announced that PlayStation4 will be available in 32 countries, but surprisingly, Sony is snubbing its country of origin, having yet to reveal when Japan can expect to see the PS4.

However, on August 21, SCEJA (that’s “Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia) announced that they will be holding the SCEJA Press Conference 2013 where it is anticipated that the release date and price for the Japanese market will be revealed.

So far, people residing in the following countries can rest easy knowing the exact day they will be able to get their hands on the PS4:

November 15 (North America)

  • Canada
  • United States

November 29 (Europe)

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Russia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • United Kingdom

November 29 (Latin America)

  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
  • Mexico
  • Panama
  • Peru

But sadly, people in Japan are forced to only dream of when they might be able to touch that oddly designed next-gen console. It is hoped that Sony will officially announce concrete information for the Japanese market at the SCEJA press conference, but so far there is no official word on the matter. The conference will be held on September 9 at 3:00pm JST and coverage will be streaming live on the PlayStation Japan official website with updates posted to their official Twitter page. Here’s hoping for some new information!
