That's according to SCEE's UK managing director, Fergal Gara, who told Digital Spy in an interview that the platform holder will release more specific launch plans at a later date.

"We will launch it this year," Gara said, adding that "exactly what regions, what timing, is being worked through."

The UK boss added: "Which regions in 2013 - is it all of them, is it some of them? Is there some degree of phasing? We'll reveal that in more detail later but we can't yet."

Asked if it's a case that one region will get the PS4 this year, Gara replied: "At least. It will launch this year, but the precise details as I say for exact dates, exact regions, is it all or some of them? We don't know."

Last week Sony confirmed a rough 'Holiday 2013' PS4 release date.

It wasn't specified whether the system will launch globally this year or only in certain territories, as has been rumoured.
