PlayStation 4 launches on November 15

PS4 is coming November 15

24

It's been a long time coming. Ever since its February reveal, Sony has carefully teased PS4 to eager gamers. And here's quite possibly the last piece of the puzzle: the release date. PlayStation 4 will be available on November 15. And yes, it's still $399.

Sony announced during its Gamescom press conference that over one million consoles have already been pre-ordered. That's a lot of consoles Sony will have to make before November.

      I hope they can fill all the preorders. I ordered mine from Best Buy back in June.

        Yeah, I pre-ordered the night of the announcement at E3. The thing which pisses me off is that pre-ordering it so early has no effect. Somebody could pre-order it today and have the same exact priority as you. We still have to show up at the store on release day and somebody who pre-ordered a week before is no different than us. The only comfort is the fact that they say if you pre-order it, that means you will get one. Supposedly they know how many they will get and they will close pre-orders when they run out of supply. I'll believe that when I see it though. If you are the last pre-order in line at Best Buy that day... I would not be surprised if you don't get your system. Screw that shit, I'm camping out.

          Well, I'm having it shipped. I don't really care about having it on day 1, I just don't want to wait 6 months after launch to get it.

          I'm pretty sure my Amazon launch edition pre-order will be fulfilled. They're pretty good about that sort of thing.

            Yeah, but I'm talking about Best Buy. I ordered it for in-store pick-up. I'm thinking maybe it wasn't a good idea now. I thought it would be first come first served.

        This shit looks awesome. Still a little sad it's only going to run at 30fps, though. Just a little.

      Anyone concerned that they are really pushing Vita? If you don't already have one that's another $200+ which puts it above the xbox price. Only difference with xbox is you have to buy the kinect where as I suppose the vita is "optional" but not if you want to fully utilize the system. Thoughts?

        August 20, 2013 12:21 PM

        from what i've seen it won't be providing any core functionality. more like "oh wouldn't it be cool if you had your map or inventory permanently displayed on another device?". as long as they're just perks, and their absence doesn't actually hurt the gameplay, i'm cool with it.

            Yeah, but the remote play functionality is like they stole the best ideas fro the wii u.

              Remote play is a selling point, but I'm not sure it's a $199 selling point.

                I never said it was. But if they do an awesome bundle on the PS4 + Vita, I could see getting one between remote play and just having a vita in general (and all those PS+ games).

          • reply
            August 20, 2013 12:50 PM

            that's cool and i support that type of functionality, but it's not really an apples to apples comparison to a device that's also a seemingly competent standalone portable gaming machine.

        August 20, 2013 12:22 PM

        you don't need a vita to play games on a PS4 though. remote play is not really fully utilizing the system i don't think. you fully utilize your plus membership by owning a vita maybe.

      • reply
        August 20, 2013 12:22 PM

        It's not needed to fully utilize the system. It's simply an add on. Some won't even care about remote play, nor should they. It's a special use case.

        BTW: I've owned a Vita since launch.

          Do you enjoy Vita? I've only played on one a handful of times... and I agree, as a bonus item vita would be awesome. Kind of like Smart glass for xbox.

            August 20, 2013 3:02 PM

            I enjoy it every time I use it, but I don't use it often. I don't take it anywhere because its too big and I have a myriad of other devices that offer way more functionality (two cellphones and an iPad). I just downloaded the Killzone Mercenary Beta which is insanely impressive. Game looks like Killzone 3 shrunk down for PS Vita.

        August 20, 2013 12:23 PM

        Not even a little concerned. It seems like a complete bonus thing, and exactly how stuff like this (or the kinect) should be handled.

        If they release a cool bundle, I could see myself getting one just for the remote play alone.

        Vita is a separate console, you don't need it, but hey, if you have one, or get one, it can do all this cool shit with your PS4!!

        Also, the Vita is fucking awesome, get one.

        August 20, 2013 3:49 PM

        Not in the slightest. Hell, in Sony's PR events the Vita most the time is an end of the list afterthought it not completely forgotten. They need to push the Vita or just abort the handheld market. From the get-go what they should have done is more cross-play with the PS3 and remote playing. It's one of the sexiest features of the Wii-U.

      Gotta say I'm surprised how late it is being released. I was assuming middle of October based on the fact we were seeing both Amazon and Gamestop offer up cheap upgrades for XBONE games, but not PS4. Leading me to believe it was just a promotion for the xbox since it was coming out later.
