Sony Play Station 4 Release Date IS

Wow! This is so exciting. The long and anticipated Sony PS4 is almost here, and it will be ours to purchase very soon. We can(as long as it's still available for pre-sale) purchase this epic gaming console system, and play all the updated games that the Play Station will have to offer.

A little history on the Sony Play Stations Console Gaming Systems:

December 3, 1994, Japan had the first launch of the first PS game console. Remember that? Heck, I was just a newbie in Wisconsin when that was happening, not even knowing about that one. Sony had sold and shipped 100 million within 9 1/2 years since it's first beginning. Unbelievable. I never did get my hand on one of those.

About 10 years later, Sony released it's second generation of gaming system, the PS2, or Play Station 2. They sold over 150 Million of these units! Incredible! Great gaming system for it's time, and yes, I do own one of these, and one of the benefit of having this one, is that they have pinball games that you can't get on the PS3, or Play Station 3.

Remember how the scalpers did away with this one? That is the PS3. The PS3 came out in 2006, and it sold over 75 million of these systems in the USA.

So, here we are in 2013, with one of the most anticipated gaming systems in Sony's history, making a total rapid change, a dramatic change from it's already great Play Station 3. It's specifications are quite equivalent to a entry level gaming system, and being able to play video games as well. I will get to that in just a little bit.

This is what you can do with the Sony Play Station IV: On November 15th here in USA

  • Play the latest video games from Sony IV. Sorry, the games are not backwards compatible. What's that you may ask? Means that you can play the PS3 and/or the PS2 games on it. Won't work.
  • Stream Videos from UV/Netflix/Blockbuster/RedBox/Amazon Prime
  • Play your DVD's, Blu-Ray's, CD's on the player

Games that are Some of anticipated to come out around the same time: Too Many to list

  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • Killzone Shadow Fall
  • Madden NFL 25 (is out now for PS3)
  • Watch Dogs
  • Dragon Age III: Inquisition--Early 2014
  • The Order: 1886
  • Destiny
  • InFamous Second Son
  • Mad Max
  • DriveClub

And many many more! Most likely the one's you like, unless it's a Xbox exclusive, you'll see it.

The Spec's are really cool:

  • An AMD 8 Core CPU
  • 8 Gigabytes of GDDR5 memory
  • 500 GB Hard Drive
  • Blu-Ray(of course, the PS3 had it, too)
  • Wireless networking, Wi-Fi
  • 1.84 TFLOPS, Radeon based graphics card--Which is equivalent to a GeForce 580 Video Card or AMD 7870--which is absolutely amazing!

Let's wrap it up:


  • It's obviously the newest and the greatest Sony Play Station to be anticipated, much much improvements over the PS3.
  • It's the fastest, most powerful Play Station Sony ever made!
  • It's not going to cost you $1000 like many rumors went around the internet. Here in USA, it will cost you $399, that's if you can get your hand on one.
  • It's like purchasing a gaming computer, and console for the price of an advanced gaming system
  • You'll be able to play the coolest games in your neighborhood.
  • It will most likely the Christmas that you won't forget!
  • The Video Card alone, will cost you over $300, so consider this one a real deal!


  • It's not backwards compatible with the other playstation games. Which means you'll have to purchase your favorite games all over again.
  • You'll wonder if you should have purchased the XBOX 1, instead
  • Your parents will go broke in buying it. A little joke--in reality, I hope not!
  • You'll have to sell your old Play Station games to buy new ones. May not be a con.

Bottom Line:

This is one really nice system that Sony has put together. Unfortunately, I don't have one in my hands as of yet, but I may end up buying one. For people who don't own the Play Station 3, this may be something that they would want to up-grade, before purchasing the older system. One thing that I forsee happening is that the prices of the PS3's will drastically drop, mainly because right now they sell around $250-300, and this system at $399, most people will want to go with this one, instead--with the major improvements, it's a no-brainer.

So, the answer to when is the Play Station coming out? November 15, 2013! Unless otherwise changes!
