Sony’s PlayStation 4 (PS4) will hit the Asian markets, including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan, by the end of December 2013.

Earlier, Sony had announced that its latest PlayStation will start shipping in North American and European markets by next month.

Meanwhile, Microsoft’s Xbox One will be released in November 22 in 13 countries, but the list doesn’t include any Asian country.

However, Microsoft has promised that its Xbox One will be hitting the Asian market in 2014. That means, PlayStation 4 will be the first one to enter the Asian gaming market.

Sony seems to be focusing on Asia, as it sees a huge potential in the Asian gaming market. During the Asia Media Conference, Hiroyuki Oda, the deputy president at Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia (SCEJA) also introduced a few titles that will be available in the Chinese and Korean languages along with the PlayStation 4.

This could attract more customers for PS4 in Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong, as they will definitely like to play in their local languages.

While taking about the paid online multiplayer service, Oda said that they will offer online multiplayer as part of the charged PS Plus service and it will give a breakthrough gaming experience for user.
