Sony will release its fourth installment of the PlayStation series on November 4th. The PS4 is will be released a week ahead of the Xbox One console and will be sold for a $100 less. The PS4 doesn’t include the PlayStation Camera though, the Xbox One has that included.
One of the big perks of PlayStation is that online play is free, you have to subscribe to Xbox Live to play online on that console.
Release Date: November 15th
As of now, Pre-Orders online for the PS4 are sold out at: Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Wal-Mart, and Toys ‘R Us. From a cursory scan of Target’s website it looks like they aren’t offering a pre-order.
