Sony’s Answers to All Your Playstation 4 Questions!


Sony so thankfully has released an extensive, and thorough, response to any sort of questions you guys may have–whether that be big or small. With us all so impatiently awaiting the Playstation 4’s launch tomorrow, I think it’s best that we take a serious look at what Sony has to say about the Playstation 4. Though Sony is still amidst preparing everything for the system’s launch, they gave us as many answers as they could. Some things that Sony so graciously covered for us, include: system details, game lineup, used game info, the dualshock4 controller, peripherals and accessories, Playstation camera, PS Vita remote play, PS Plus and online multiplayer, PS Store and digital games, digital entertainment, as well as gameplay sharing.

First things first, lets dive a bit deeper into the system details. The first item on our agenda would be the topic of price. Sony’s Playstation 4 sets you all back at $399.99. Both the Sony PS4 Camera and additional wireless controller will be priced at a whopping $59.99 each, at retail price. Well, we all know that the PS4 comes out tomorrow in North America, but what about other regions?

The PS4’s release dates for all other regions are listed below:

  • Europe: November 29th [Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia , Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom]
  • Latin America: November 29th [Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, and Peru]
  • Japan: February 22nd, 2014
  • Asia Regions: Middle of December 2013
  • All Other Regions: TBA

What exactly will our money be getting us when we purchase the Playstation 4? All $400 will be getting you a 500GB PS4 system, a DUALSHOCK4 wireless controller, a micro-USB cable so you can charge your controller, a mono-headset with voice chat capabilities, a power cable, as well as a standard HDMI cable. Sony has also confirmed that the Playstation 4 includes an internal ‘power brick’, so no external one is needed. All PS4 players will also be able to replace the system’s 500GB hard drive, but an external hard drive will not be supported with the new system.

At launch, the Playstation 4 will be available in ‘Jet Black’, and so far, that will be the only color available. Just like Sony’s previous console, the PS4 will also be able to be placed in horizontal and vertical positions. In regards to all the system’s technical specs, and how it surpasses the Playstation 3, Sony explained that, “[The] PS4 is capable of 10x the processing power of the PS3 system. The system features an optimized design featuring a unified 8GB of high-speed GDDR5 RAM, an eight core X86 CPU, and a powerful graphics processor. Generally speaking, PS4 will enable game developers to build larger, more detailed worlds than they could with the PS3 system. More realistic lighting models, more complex physics and particle effects, more varied and realistic character animations, sharper environment and object textures, higher screen resolutions (up to 1080p), higher frame rates (up to 60 frames per second), larger multiplayer matches and more will be possible thanks to PS4’s next-generation hardware.”

Sony continued to go into even further detail in celebration for their next system’s launch, tomorrow, and the full report is available here.
