PS4 launching in Hong Kong, other select Asian regions from Dec. 2013

The PlayStation 4 will launch in select South East Asian territories, including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea and Singapore, starting in December of this year, Sony announced during its TGS press conference today.

Select peripherals, including additional controllers, charging docks and the PlayStation 4's camera will also be sold separately in those regions at launch. No specific date beyond the month of December was announced.

The PlayStation 4 will launch in North America on Nov. 15, and in Europe on Nov. 29. The South East Asia launch window falls behind those dates, but it's still well ahead of the Japanese release date for the console — the PS4 is set to launch in Japan on Feb. 22, 2014.
