NeoGaf has translated some speculation by user, CBoat (crazy buttocks on a train), who is confirming the rumored October release of the PlayStation 4. CBoat is a trusted source on the forum and seems to have never been wrong.
With information that only an insider would know, here are his latest claims:
TruthFact 1 : No live stream because the console firmware is not ready for a 'live' show. System architecture is not yet complete and is still being worked on.
TruthFact 2 : Localization in countries that the official language is something other than English is a bitch. Yield problems are contributing to those countries not getting the same release date as US. Chickens be roostin.
TruthFact 3: PS4 will launch last week of October. The October 21st thread speculation is likely true.
TruthFact 4: Bayonetta sequel will not be exclusive but MS has money hatted Platinum into making an exclusive IP.
TruthFact 5: Big park studios is not working on a game they are working on TV services.
TruthFact 6: Just how friendly the xbone will be to indies is still up in the air. More info later.
TruthFact 7: Kinect-less SKU is not coming at least this year.
Rumor: Maybe a kinect-less sku later in product life depending on commercial success or failure of the initial SKU.
If his claims for the PlayStation 4 release date being in October ring true, that means that the Toys R Us supplier's confirmation date of December 13th was extremely inaccurate. A December release date would not be a smart move anyway, given the fact that a lot of the holiday sales would be missed out on with such a late release date. However, the other rumored release date of October, which sounds more reasonable, is confirmed by Cboat as he takes it a step further and says October 21st is most likely the case.
A Bayonetta sequel that is not a Microsoft exclusive is most definitely welcomed!
We can assume that we will learn the release date of the PlayStation 4 during Sony's Gamescom press conference that will go live in a little over an hour.
