Breaking: PS4 Hits Store Shelves In North America On November 15

The date is here and the showdown is set.

It's the one piece of news every Sony fan was waiting on, and it arrived today during Sony's Gamescom 2013 press conference: The PlayStation 4 will launch in North America on November 15, and in Europe on November 29. All in all, the console will be available in 32 countries in 2013.

As we already know, the new console will retail for $399 in North America, €399 in Europe and £349 in the United Kingdom. Furthermore, it was revealed that all launch PS4s will come packaged with a free two-week PlayStation Plus subscription. Then they announced a partnership with Twitch that will bring video sharing to the next-gen system. Players just have to press that nifty Share button on the Dual Shock 4 controller and then broadcast their gameplay directly via their Twitch channels. I have zero interest in that, but that's just me.

Microsoft didn't reveal an exact date for the Xbox One, but they have said it will be on store shelves in November. Therefore, the face-off goes down in a few months time! I think Sony should've tossed in a full month of Plus (two weeks is kinda lame, IMO) but other than that, I still firmly believe the PS4 has the edge. Don't you?

Okay... I am happy they finally announced it... However, I should be making comparisons between the PS4 and Xbox One, not the PS4 and the Ouya. Were there any new PS4 games announced that weren't indie... I have to say if this is the direction next gen is going... I really am not interested. I thought it was a really poor show overall.

They used the show to announce a launch date. Good enough for the consoles itself. As for games look at the developers.

That's nice an all but I have to admit I have yet to see a reason to buy the PS4. I know I will be buying a console for Metal Gear Solid V - Which SHOULD be a PS4 exclusive... But as for the actually games on the PS4... None of them are system sellers, the only title which has me interested is Watchdogs, which is on the XBOX too.

It just seems everything I used to identify the Playstation with has gone. From Platformers like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, to fighters like Tekken, JRPG's like Final Fantasy and as I mentioned before Metal Gear Solid, these were the reasons I bought a PS2 and PS3 and slowly these franchises have either jumped to both consoles or become extinct. With the PS4 I see nothing that it offers.

I know it is early days, but I am still indecisive on what console I want and this show did not convince me towards the PS4 at all.

They said this was going to be a Vita conference more than anything so nothing to be worried about just yet. They have all 14 1st party studios working on titles for the PS4. Not to mention, indies are not bad it means that more game studios will come to produce better games as time goes on.

Speaking as as someone who has yet to upgrade from a PSP to Vita this show didn't even hint at anything to reconsider my opinion on the console. Other than a price drop, but the same problem on content remains.

The problem with the PSP was that all my games were either ports or titles from established franchises. The main use was to play my PS1 games I bought off the Store. Opening up your console to have it invaded with indie games is not a compromise I am willing to put up with.

The Vita does have a few interesting titles, Tear-Away being one that really makes use of the console as a whole. But there has yet to be anything that really makes me feel like I am missing out .

I don't want to come across too negative, I want to buy a PS4 next gen, but it feels like they have lost the majority of the strength in exclusives this gen. I'm sure Naughty Dog will cook up something satisfying but that but we might not even hear about that until early 2015...

Ultima, sorry but exclusives no longer play the part they used to do before the current generation. There will be exclusives of course, but that's less and less significant for a platform these days.

There's loads of differences between the consoles this generation. You should take the other factors too into consideration when choosing platform: The services and features, technology, price, costs, look&feel, company/platform history, user base, peripherals, platform focus, you know... The whole package.

I know that they have other events coming up but chances of more AAA titles at launch are zero to none. They keep claiming that they have the best launch lineup and they are completely full of s/-/it. Yeah it's decent in terms of games but its not the best. Like someone else stated Im glad a lot of Indies are onboard and I cannot wait to see what we get but I expect my PS4 to have core games instead of cellphone games. I know Im not the only one that thinks the launch lineup is weak and therefore I won't be getting a PS4 until Infamous comes out. I love Sony and the PS4 but for this launch I will be waiting patiently.

Well I expected it around Thanksgiving. I think Plus for 2weeks is kind of weird considering its a monthly subscription but its necessary now to play online anyways so 2 weeks seems a little more logical, thinking on it.

Well I now know when I get to play KZ so this is exciting!

Oh I believe you. I just hate the thought of it. I cannot believe the 360 version of Minecraft knocked The Last of Us off the charts in the UK. This is not the sort of game that should appear on a console(Something I am nearly saying every gaming conversation with the invasion of indie content.)

It just happens to fall very close to Thanksgiving which is the only holiday that I truly enjoy because of the food and the quality time with the family & friends. I don't think I'll be getting the PS4 so soon. I'm going to wait around February 2014 when there are more games.

What I need is a good desktop computers. The PS3 will keep me very busy with GTA5, Castlevania, The Last of Us (yes I have yet to play it), Gran Turismo etc.

New meaning to "twitch" gaming.

So MS will be scrambling to get out ahead of them. Wonder if that could cause another RRoD-type holocaust. Good to have a date. If no new exclusives or AAA launch titles came out then the next gen is gonna be a slow simmer.

Fail. They should have released on the same day as CoD. I know everyone thinks that hating on CoD is somehow "keeping it real". But that doesn't matter. The game still sells a gazillion copies every year and there are plenty of people that want to go down and pick up both a PS4 and CoD at the same time. If Xbox is released on 11/5, there will be plenty of people who will just purchase it instead.

They did, with releasing a console in 32 countries, when xbone will be available in 2013 only in 13 countries(it is a catasrophe for MS).

Great news!!
Gonna hold off untill next summer or until after Agent & The last guardian(if their released on PS3)
I can play AC4 & Watchdogs on PS3.....although MGS5 would be enough to make me jump over to PS4 if say TLG was announced as a PS4 exclusive(agent too).

If Metal Gear Solid V was a launch title I would already have a PS4 pre-ordered. I will pretty be buying a next gen console for that game, so All I am waiting for is a release date. I hear Kojima will be attending a conference at Gamescom, so who knows - By estimate is April 2014.

If MGS5 looks as good on PS3 as TLOU or GTA5 or GT6 then i don't really feel the NEED to go over to PS4 yet....but yeah a nov2013 release for MGS5 would rock.

Oh Metal Gear is one game I do not settle for less with. I bought a PS3 for Metal Gear Solid 4 and shall do the same for Metal Gear Solid V.

While talking about the current-next gen conversions. I heard the PS3 version of Watchdogs is meant to look dire in comparison. It is clear that a game is built for the design of one generation in mind. Either Current gen and slightly upgraded (Like the 360's Call of Duty 2, Gun and Tony Hawks American Wasteland) or a game that is clearly next gen and the current gen version will not be sufficient (Like the PS2 version of Splinter Cell: Double Agent).

When groundzero's was announced they showed off the current gen version(or so i believed at the time)looks good to me!
Did'nt ubisoft F up & released a trailer using an old build which looked horrible just recently then scramble to correct it?
These early cross gen games will have very little differences,MGSV included.

Some people are never happy......you know who you are.

Me....I am just glad its coming, this generation has been entirely too long. It seems there will not be a shortage of games on day 1 and that my friends is what's important.

I will say I was a tad bit disappointed with the LBP Hub, I loved the series but now it seems they want to be able to nickel and dime there audience....and I won't stand by that.

oh whatever. let them have it. the last thing I want on my mind going into the next-gen is who has control of the action FPS category. Screw that.
It seems every console gen has some sort of favorite genre that draws in way more excitement for longer than it should. Remember when platformers ruled the roost? yah, not anymore.

That's going to be here soon.

I still think PS4 has the marketing edge, but not by a lot. That is, MS is really pushing the heavy duty cash cows that look predictably typical in their violent assault on the senses. Almost like Transformers and Marvel movie style predictable in design and mass appeal. Sure it'll draw in the masses but I think the PS4 has a lot more innovation and artistry going on for it. Whether that'll bode well for being the best selling platform is to be seen.

But honestly, judging from the current gen, having the most sales does not convert to the best and broadest selection of quality games, looks at Wii and stateside sales of 360. Let MS buyout their success with getting cozy with EA and do their thing to be the Walmart and Michael Bay of entertainment, but my money is still on Sony.

That's not to say SOny doesn't have their blockbuster style offerings with games like KZ, Uncharted, and GoW, but they definitely don't feel inseparably married to them either.

Sony has much more competition in US. They did very well in Europe and Japan last generation so the best business decision is to release where your console where you want to dominate first.

so trivial my a$$!
fine, next time your really excited for something let me know and ill delay the release date by two weeks and will see whos complaining about something so trivial!
and thats exactly why $ony should release in EU first, they have always been the most successful there than in the US.
especially with all the rumours of xbox one releasing 5/11 in the US, releasing on the 15th will still put them almost 2 weeks behind so they would be better off putting that launch advantage to somewhere where it would actually be a advantage!
