PS4 Release Date

The PlayStation 4 release date will be Nov. 15 revealed Sony at their Gamescom conference this morning. The console will retail for $399.

Sony had previously given the PS4 a launch window of Holiday 2013 at this year’s E3. Ever since the announcement, rumors and theories began to circulate around the industry on when gamers would actually be able to get their hands on Sony’s next-generation console. Hype surrounding the PS4 only intensified after the company revealed many of their policies towards used games. The PS4 wouldn’t restrict how gamers had traditionally bought, sold and played used games. Additionally, players wouldn’t have to periodically connect to the internet to authenticate single player games – a stark contrast to Microsoft’s policies on the Xbox One that were in place at the time.

DriveClubKillzone: Shadow Fall and Knack will be Sony’s first party games available at the launch of the PS4. The three titles were first announced during the PS4 reveal in late February of this year. Infamous: Second Son was also revealed but won’t see a release until the first quarter of 2014.

The November release date coincides with some of this year’s most anticipated titles. With a November launch date, the PS4 release coincides with some of this year’s most anticipated titles.
