That date marks the end of Sony's current financial year, and the PS4 will have launched in most major markets by that stage. Unusually, for a Sony product, the PS4 will not launch in Japan until February, with the US, Europe and Australia getting the console in November.

Sony has previously claimed, back in early August, that it has already received 1 million pre-orders for the console.
