PS4 To Ship In November At $430?
While sources say it's "unlikely" that Sony will announce exact pricing and dates for the PlayStation 4 during today's upcoming press event, the rumors continue to circulate at a rapid clip.
The latest comes from a tipster speaking to Kotaku, and it seems the PS4 will launch in November with an odd starting price of $430. A second model will be available at $530, but the source says these prices aren't exactly "set in stone."
Furthermore, another new piece of information: Supposedly, gamers will be able to control the PS4 remotely via tablet or smartphone. We'll even be able to chat with friends and buy games through their devices, if this particular detail rings true. Additionally, it appears Sony will change the name of their premium subscription service from PlayStation Plus to PlayStation World. Do you like that name better?
Lastly, the PS4 is expected to ship with a PlayStation Eye and a "new spectating feature" that lets gamers watch friends play games from their dashboard, and it doesn't matter if they own the game their friend is playing. Yeah, well, I'm sorry, but that's just a little creepy.
