While Sony might have unveiled the PlayStation 4 earlier this year, what many gamers are probably wondering is when exactly will the console be released? Well rumors have suggested that Sony will announce a release date during Gamescom and Sony’s confirmation of a 20th August press conference seems to confirm that, and thanks to a recent post on the official Sony PlayStation blog, the company states that during the event, “release plans for PlayStation 4” is expected to be shared. The company also states that there will be updates provided for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita.

The latter is particularly interesting because a recent report has suggested that Sony could be looking to introduce a redesigned PS Vita, although the rumor stated that it was expected to be unveiled during the Tokyo Games Show which takes place in September, so perhaps Sony’s PS Vita update during Gamescom could be something else entirely. In any case we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for more information and as it stands, the rumors are pointing at a 21st October release, so hopefully Sony will be able to confirm that for us on the 20th of August!
