When the PS4 be Available?
At the Gamescom conference in Germany, Sony announced that it will release the PS4 on November 15 in the US and Canada. This is the first announcement about a release date between the two major consoles – the Playstation 4 and the XBOX One. While Microsoft was silent, it is to be expected that the XBOX One will be released in November and will go head to head with the PS4 for the upcoming holiday season.
Earlier it was announced that the price of the PS4 would be $399. You can even preorder the game system today at stores such as Amazon.com. Order today and you will have it on the official launch date!
In all, the console will be released in 30 countries! As stated, it will release in the United States and Canada, followed by Europe over the next two weeks.
If the future is like the past, the struggle for dominance and market share in the video game sector between the PS4 and Xbox One will be played out over the next seven or eight years. And, with their announcements Tuesday both highlighting new titles and exclusive game bundles and features, both Microsoft and Sony completely get that it’s content that ultimately matters to gamers.
Sony also announced at the conference that it will have 33 game titles out by the end of the year. There are a reported 180 games in current development for the PS4. With a price cheaper than the XBOX One and an official launch date set up for the system, it looks like Microsoft is already playing catch up to Sony.
Some of the games are the latest in new game releases such as Call of Duty Ghosts, Gran Turismo 6, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag, and EA Sports latest soccer release Fifa 14.
