PlayStation 4 will launch in Japan on February 22, 2014, Sony has announced.

The date means that Sony's next-gen console won't launch in the territory until three months after its debut in Europe and North America.

To make up for the delay, Sony will offer a limited-run day one PS4 pack including a free digital download of Knack and an extended 24 month warranty.

The console will cost 38,980 yen (£250), or 43,980 (£282) with a PlayStation Eye camera.

PlayStation 4 launches first in North America on November 15, and follows in the UK two weeks later on November 29.

This was a smart move by Sony IMO. Microsoft looks like they have totally given up on the Japan market so Sony isn't in any rush to release it there. The folks in Japan will buy the PS4 whenever it comes out anyway! Sounds arrogant but that's the reality. Besides, there's no way that Xbox One would come out for anywhere near that price in Japan so they are dead in the water before they even start.

£250?! That's crazy! Weird that it's launching in it's strongest territory last.
