They can claim 9 months is the release date and push into 2014 and then we got a revision. It isn't guaranteed until it ships so I will hold off on excitement until we see actual hardware and a firm release date. I am looking forward to the new system and my biggest issue with the PS3 was lack of synergy. If online and the features they describe are going to be better than the current PSN, then I am very much looking forward for the system to arrive soon.

Yup, but that was 18 months from release, then including a delay. If they are targeting xmas 2013, the hardware has been locked for a while now. Theres simply no way it wouldnt be, as suppliers dont just grow on trees.
Remember, typically there were long periods between announcment and release before. Not the case this time, as we know. Lots of people wondering when things were going to get shown and released.
Hell, sony even had developers make ingame tech demos and real demos this time instead of cgi renders. They learned their lesson, but its also because were relatively late in the dev cycle for a new release.
So that really only leaves a flat out lie. Could you imagine the blowback
