Sony should define some points about its strategy with PS4 at GamesCom 2013. One of these points is the release date for Europe, America and the rest of territories, although I guess Sony will announce the Japanese release date for PS4 at Tokyo Game Show.
One Neo-GAF user has posted interesting info upon PS4 and its release. According this user, PS4 would be available in two months, exactly October 21st. This date could be feasible, one month before the Black Friday, enough time to prepare the market.
Our deep throat could be wrong, but this user has been certificate for Neo-GAF mods, therefore this man at least work where he said (at large retailer). Copy and paste from Neo-GAF:

Our internal product release schedule from head office dropped yesterday and on Oct 21st an unnamed Sony console will be launched. Fyi all console revisions like the ps360 slims and Wii Mini were listed as ps360 & wii mini. Previously the wiiu, 3ds and vita were also only listed as Nintendo/Sony Console in the product name column.
Disclaimer: I just work at a very large retailer, managing the electronics sales force and nothing more. I have nothing to do with purchasing, nation wide merchandising or shipping. I am not trying to play this off as I have connections at Sony, or I am some sort of insider. It’s that just yesterday we received a product release schedule from our head office and I thought this is OT itt. These schedules btw, are for internal use only, designed to allow us time to create our instore merch plans. If the launch date for a product is unknown, it’s simply marked TBA. The only time a date is ever included is when we have received confirmation of said date from the product company.
