Just yesterday, Ster Kinekor Entertainment announced that the PlayStation®4 is set to launch on 6th December 2013 in South Africa, just in time for Christmas! The marketing department had this to say:

The PS4 is a next generation computer entertainment system that redefines rich and immersive gameplay with powerful graphics and speed, deeply integrated social capabilities, and innovative second-screen features utilising devices such as PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita). Continuing the gaming revlotion SCE will continue to offer breakthrough gaming and entertainment experiences on the system through applications such as PSNSM and PlayStation®Plus*1, a membership service offering members exclusive content and features, while enhancing the PS4™ system itself through future system software updates.  As part of this initiative, PS4™ will support Twitch, a live internet streaming service devoted to video gaming, concurrently with the release of the system – activated through a press of a button on the dual-shock controller.
