PlayStation 4 Debuts November 15

PlayStation 4 Debuts November 15

PlayStation 4 console

Sony has finally offered up an official release date for the PlayStation 4, and it's less than three months away.

PlayStation 4 fans, now would be a good time to circle November 15 on your calendars. That's the date on which the PlayStation 4 will make its retail debut with a $400 price tag.

That news comes courtesy of Sony's Gamescom press conference, which drew to a close moments ago. Alongside over a dozen new games, the firm revealed a release date for the console, word that it will have innate, hardware-level support for remote play on the Vita handheld, and the option to stream gameplay footage directly to Twitch.

If you missed the stream, don't worry. The Escapist will be filled with crucial revelations from the conference momentarily. Keep your eyes peeled for everything you need to know.

I'm gonna have to see at least 3 games I want before picking it up.

Don't get me wrong, I like the PS4, but a system without games is kind of sad, and I'll need to see more of Infamous: Second Son to see if it is more fun than the first two.

Well now I know what day to not go out of the house. After the multiple shootings for the Wii and the PS3s at launch back then I've learned to not leave the house that day.

Be warned that if travelling to Europe for whatever reason it's TWO BLOODY WEEKS LATER D=<

Between the inflated price, inflated games prices and delayed arrival it would seem Sony really doesn't want me to buy their stuff these days. The Shadow Fall multi reveal was also severely disappointing.

Glad I just ordered my new PC parts and have my Wii U for my traditional console fix. I think that'll do for a couple of years. See how these PS4 and X1 things work out.

Nice, I was wondering if they'd be able to get it out before 2014 and how close to the holiday season it was going to be. Given the date, glad I pre-ordered a long time ago.

I'm glad the PS4 has it's release date announced. I'm sure as hell not going to actually buy it on said day. hopefully since I already put 200 bucks down on one they will save me a copy for later. or eventually at least. I'm not risking getting shot.

As embarassing as it is to admit, yes it does.

With the Xbox One also being released in November it'll be interesting to see how launch numbers are effected by price, release date etc as they will be in direct competition compared to the gap between the 360 and PS3.

Well, now I know what day(s) to take off work.

Consider me excited. Twitch support, yeeeessssssssss. Nov 15 is just a couple weeks after my birthday, so maybe I'll have some extra cash lying around...

Might hold off until whenever Second Son releases though.

SkarKrow:
Between the inflated price,

Wait, what? It's cheaper than the launch PS3 was...

inflated games prices

Aren't games staying the same price...?

Neither of those things hold true outside the US.

That's how I'm doing things too. I just got my new water-cooled gaming behemoth PC, and the WiiU promises a lot of delightful console-only experiences in the future.

Altogether, I'm sure they'll both provide me with way more entertainment than I could find the time for. But all the same, I'll be watching the PS4, and see what comes of it in the future. As a piece of hardware it looks like the best thing Sony has done so far, barring the absence of backwards compatibility. I understand, of course, why it doesn't have it, though if it did that might've been enough to convince me to pick one up in the not-so-distant future.

To answer you question, I shall say a simple phrase that should be taken as sarcasm:
'Merica, Fuck Yeah! >.>

On a more serious note, yes there were shootings a couple of blocks from me and they were by people who wanted a PS3. Then Wii had about 1 shooting by where I was, other injuries were due to trampling.
Total that died that day I believe was about 4 people. My country makes me sad sometimes.

thieves would make big bucks on a new console on street day. Hell in Christmas you see stories about thieves following people home after Christmas shopping for big ticket items to do a home invasion later. I think there was one case where they just beat up or kill the people in their drive way and steal the items the very moment they get home.

Thieves can be pretty vicious.

You have to hide big ticket purchases like a console from people while you are getting it to your house, or risk a home invasion later in the day. On launch day thieves are looking for people not paying attention to their surroundings or people who look like they can't defend themselves as they walk from the store.

If I remember correctly the most common targets were kids with their mothers/grandmothers. Then again, this is California.

Neat!

Am so excited for the PS4~

My brother and I are both chipping in for this console at launch, but I don't think we should get the console until a week later because the muggings will start. :I

*daw drops in shock* my birthday is the 16th November *starts jumping around like a kid*
Yep I'm definently taking that day off this year

Pre-ordered a bundle tonight at Best Buy.

One of the good things about living in a tiny state like Vermont with a population of maybe 500,000 total is that the turnout for these big tech releases tends to be on the smaller side when compared to other places. We'll have some lines to be sure, but it won't be a mad house a new console launch would be in other places.

Wooo that's my birthday. All of you must buy me a PS4...thats just how it works

Alas if only inFamous Second Son was a launch title, but I'll definitely be picking that up when it comes out and the launch bugs have been ironed out over Christmas. In the mean time, my PS3 Backlog needs amending, because if history has taught me anything, I won't be touching my PS3 ever again.
