A Gamenguide writer called Home Depot after hearing about the rumor and a sales representative said that the company has no plans of selling the upcoming video game console. The rumor was the result of a Reddit thread where a user claimed to see a photo of a PlayStation 4 kiosk at Home Depot. Someone else commented saying that they have a friend who works at the store and confirmed this information. Unfortunately, it appears as if this Reddit thread was nothing more than a hoax.
The PlayStation 4 is set for a Nov. 15 release in North America and a Nov. 29 release in Europe for $399.
