Despite teasing a 2013 release for the PlayStation 4 in the UK this morning, ASDA has told us that it’s merely predicting when the console will release. “We have had no confirmation from Sony,” a spokesperson said. “This is merely an estimation, and we look forward to hearing a confirmed release date soon.”

In a press release issued earlier today, the supermarket suggested that the next generation system will “hit UK stores at the end of this year”. Sadly, it seems like we’ll have to keep waiting to see if that’s actually the case. Sony’s promised that the console will launch in at least one territory in 2013 – let’s hope that it can manage more than that so that no one’s left out in the lurch.
