Last night, Feb. 20, 2013, at the end of Sony’s big announcement event where they unveiled the PlayStation 4, Sony revealed that the console would be available on store shelves for the holiday season this year. No price point was officially revealed, nor was a specific date other than “holiday”. This so far lines up with an earlier report that the system would be available in November, but obviously they haven’t confirmed that.
Also interesting to note was the fact that Sony did not reveal what the system would look like. One would assume that this might be because the design of the console may not yet be finalized, but they did show the Dual-Shock 4 controller, which was only very slightly different than the leaked images of it.
After the show, speaking in an interview with Eurogamer, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida destroyed the rumors that the PS4 would block the user from playing used games.
"Used games can play on PS4."
Check back for more updates as they become available.
