Earlier today, Microsoft announced the price and release date of the Xbox One.  Sony was quick to follow with information on the PlayStation 4 and finally unveiled the new design at E3.  The PS4 will sell for $399 when it is released later this year, $100 less than the $499 list price of the Xbox One.  You can now pre-order the console at Amazon—keep in mind they won’t charge you until it ships.  There are 140 games in development for the PS4, including 100 that are set to be available in the first year of release.

See the new design and video of the announcement after the jump.

Here are the key specs from Amazon:

The DUALSHOCK 4 controller incorporates a new highly sensitive six-axis sensor, as well as a touch pad located on the top of the controller, which offers gamers completely new ways to play and interact with games.

The newly developed PlayStation Camera for PlayStation 4 incorporates two high-sensitive cameras that have wide-angle lenses with 85-degree diagonal angle views which can recognize the depth of space precisely.

Key Features
  • DUALSHOCK 4 controller with touch pad, three-axis accelerometer and three-axis gyroscope, and rechargeable battery
  • Two high-sensitive cameras with 85-degree diagonal angle views for enhanced depth perception
  • Compatible with x86 architecture to make video game development easier on the next-generation console
  • Controller connection via Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
  • 802.11 b/g/n wireless network connectivity, Ethernet, and USB ports

One of the advantages of PS4 over Xbox One is less restrictions on playing used games.  With that in mind, check out PlayStation’s official used game instructional video:

    Damn, it sounds like PS4 pulled a “red wedding” all over Xbox at E3.

  • fooliocoolio

    its over xbox is doomed!!!

    lol xbone fanboyz mad as hell.


  • Hunter

    Yeah for someone that has always sported the xbox… I think I am making the switch on this one.

  • Samson

    yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss thats just great price that’s a great way to treat us fans

  • Nico

    I’m sold hearing that there is no on=line requirements for PS4 disk games. The idea of checking in with an internet connection really pissed me off.

  • Mello Mastikan

    To me it looks like the Iphone. Shinny new case, some improved features and everything else the same. Basically an updated PS3.

  • Choca

    It looks like the black Wii had sex with a trapezoid…seven years pass and voila! PS4 is born. At least it isn’t that VCR looking Skynet Box, I mean Xbox.

  • Convoy

    Like I said elsewhere. I am getting the Xbox One. It did impress me and I want one. I will just be getting a PS4 first.

    So a price point is all you needed to sell you a system? Come on guys, no innovation and odd details on social that we didn’t really want in our gaming experience, how is PS4 better than PS3?

    • Still a fan

      Uh, Duh! It has a “4″ in the name which is one better than “3″

    Yes, you can only choose one system! And must bash the other! Playstation owners and XBox owners must hate each other! These are the rules for some reason! Oh, wait, they totally aren’t. I’ll be having one of each hooked up to my big ass tv. But good job on creating fanboy hatred for no reason. Just like the ridiculous notion that you have to choose between Marvel or DC.

    • yea

      This isnt about fanboys, Microsoft really did screw themselves over with this DRM, and 24 hour internet connection(not that big of a deal to me).

      • yea

        requiring to be connected to the internet once in a 24 hour period is what i meant.
