Sony Corp announced the Japanese release of its PlayStation 4 on Monday as the electronics maker braces for a console war with Microsoft Corp that could make or break the Japanese firm's struggle to return to profit.

Sony revealed that Playstation 4 will not be launching in its native Japan until 2014. Sony has been noncommittal about the Japanese date sine E3, but it does finally confirm tat the west will be getting Playstation 4 first. 

According to Sony, the reason behind the delay was cited as the "availability of content." The company does ensure that there are enough games for the Japanese market ready for PS4 before releasing it, and essentially stated that development for western-centric games is farther along.
