    So, it seems that Sony's made a few major announcements all at once. A new Vita model has been announced, and a new Vita thing also... exists. So if you've been on edge for Vita news and announcements, your prayers have been answered.

    Another bit of important news has come to light among the Vita hoopla - the PS4's Japanese launch date.

    So, Japanese gamers, you've been PS-forewarned. You've got quite a wait ahead of you.

    That's not to say it's all bad for Japan, of course. Japanese consumers will have several models to choose from, including one that includes the brand-spanking new PS Eye. Anyone who buys a PS4 will receive a free copy of Knack (hey, it might not seem like much, but don't Knack it until you've tried it) and a year long extended warranty. A superior value for muh superior otaku culture.

    When asked for further comment, Sony only had this to say...

    I think Japan are too busy playing 3DS to care.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a large shipment of western PS4 consoles are imported into Japan. They are region-free after all.

    from what i understand they dont celebrate Christmas on there like in the west... so they have no reason to rush the release of the console on there...

    inb4 the ps4 firmware will have lots of bugs while the japanese ones will a newer firmware pre-installed

    It's because there are no Japan centric games out yet, which is understandable.

    I'll have enough games to hold me over for the 3 extra months I'll need to wait to play the PS4.
