PlayStation 4

There isn’t much we don’t know about the PlayStation 4 at this point. Sony has let the details slip out in drips and drabs, dragging out the mystery as long as possible. But now, the last remaining blank spot in our dossier — the release date — has been filled. At today’s Gamescom 2013 press event, the electronics giant revealed that the PS4 will hit shelves on November 15th in the US. On that day you’ll be able to run out and grab one for $399 and immediately start waving your yellow tentacles in Octodad or slaughter rooms full of people in Hotline Miami. Europe will follow shortly afterwards (with a €399 or £349 price point) on November 29th. In total Sony expects to launch the PS4 in 32 countries before the end of the holiday season. That’s pretty ambitious, but with 1,000,000 preorders already in the bank, we’d say the company has plenty of reason to be optimistic. Microsoft is already losing the pricing war… now we just have to wait and see if it can get the Xbox One out the door before Sony gets a head start with early adopters.
