PlayStation 4 'to be delayed until 2014 in Europe'

By
The PlayStation 4 will be delayed until 2014 in Europe, a new report has suggested.

Sony's as-yet-unannounced console, which will reportedly be unveiled on February 20, will launch in North America and Japan in 2013 and Europe early the following year, according to Edge.



The delay has been attributed to the "complexities involved in European distribution".

The same report suggests that the console will be more powerful than the next-generation Xbox and will continually record the most recent 15 minutes of onscreen action for sharing.

The latest details seem to confirm an earlier report that the console will introduce more social gaming elements.

Sony's next console - codenamed Orbis and more commonly referred to as PlayStation 4 - will reportedly use new user accounts and a new controller design.

It was recently claimed that Sony's next console will feature 4K resolution support in line with a rumoured new range of Sony TVs.

Additional hardware details were leaked last year, while EA's Frank Gibeau revealed that he had seen both the PS4 and new Xbox, and suggested that the consoles would introduce gaming to a further billion people.

Sony CEO Kaz Hirai recently hinted that the company's next console could arrive after Microsoft's next Xbox system.
