Sony’s PlayStation 4 is due to arrive Stateside in less than two weeks, but it’s not just the $399 price tag that gamers will have to factor in.  For those who enjoy playing online games, Sony will be charging a monthly fee of $9.99 for access to online games through the PlayStation Plus portal.  Gamers can also pay $17.99 for three months or $49.99 for a year, but no matter which plan you pick, it’s going to cost you to play games online.  Hit the jump for more.

After much speculation, Sony has announced that the PlayStation 4 will officially launch in North America on November 15th and in Europe on November 29th.  That gives the console a prime holiday release date, where it will launch with a $399 pricetag.  We previously learned that 100 PS4 games are set to be available within the console’s first year of release, which is necessary since the PS4 is not backwards compatible.  Additionally, Sony announced that the PlayStation Vita will be getting a price cut to $100.  Microsoft’s Xbox One doesn’t yet have a firm launch date, but it is expected to be released sometime in November as well.

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.

TOP 5: The Road to Oscar, SNITCH Interviews, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Character Guide, STAR WARS Roundup, Sony Announces Playstation 4

I’m opening myself up to complete public failure here, but in the spirit of Oscar weekend I thought it might be fun to share with peers and readers alike my picks for tomorrow’s 85th Academy Awards. Worst case scenario, I figure, is that my picks are so woefully off base that I’m quickly offered a well-compensated position within the Republican Party as a polling analyst. High hopes, I know, but ultimately it’s all in the name of fun. Here’s to hoping you the reader will enjoy comparing your predictions against my own and sleeping better at night as a result of your superior Oscar guessing power.

My half-witted Oscar picks aside, this week’s edition features category previews plus Adam and Matt’s own predictions, Snitch interviews with Dwayne Johnson and more, a character guide to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a roundup of recent Star Wars: Episode VII talk, and Sony’s PlayStation 4 announcement. Something that resembles a brief recap and link to each is starved for your attention after the jump.

Sony held a press conference in New York earlier today to announce their next-gen system, the PlayStation 4.  While Sony did reveal a fair amount of information as to the technology of the new console and the game developers who are expected to create software for the new system, there were no images of the console itself, no price points (though it’s been rumored at $429 and $529 for different models), and no hard release dates.  They did release a couple of looks at the new controller as well as a “Holiday 2013″ release window, but that was more than underwhelming for those who sat through the entire press conference.  Hit the jump to find out what we know so far.
