The next generation of console wars has a start date. We already knew it would have killer graphics, some impressive games and a great launch price of $399 ($100 cheaper than the Xbox One), but today Sony finally announced the last major missing detail on the PlayStation 4– it’s release date. Well, here it is: the PlayStation 4 will be available in the US on November 15th, or just under three short months from now.
On top of that Sony also said that the PS4 will have 33 games available by the end of the year. The games include Call of Duty: Ghosts, Skylanders Swap Force, Need for Speed: Rivals, Battlefield 4, Madden 25, FIFA 14, NBA 2K14, NBA Live 14, Killzone: Shadow Fall, #DRIVECLUB, Knack, Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag, Watch Dogs, Just Dance 2014, and LEGO Marvel Superheroes. As far as launch lineups go this is pretty solid.
Oh, and the PS4 wasn’t the only PlayStation product to get some attention today. Sony also said that the PS Vita has been given a nice price cut and will now be $199 (for both the WiFi-only and WiFi+3G versions). If you were looking for a deal on the Vita for back to school, here it is.
