How things change. Time was when we would have to wait a year or two for Japanese consoles to release here in the West, but Sony have shifted their release priorities for the PS4 it would seem.
In any case, Japan finally has a PS4 release date: February 22nd, 2014.
The console will come in at 38,980 yen ($390) at launch, that's without the PlayStation Camera; or 43,980 ($440) with the optional device.
Japanese pre-orders kick off on October 5th.
In Japan, the first wave of SKUs will come in the form of “Limited Packs,"which will include a download code for Knack and a nice extended warranty for a year. We won't be getting the Knack pack-in over here, but then we are getting the console three months earlier.
