Over the past few weeks, there have been a number of rumors regarding Sony’s new system, presumably titled the PlayStation 4. Yesterday, Feb. 19, 2013, there were a few last minute reports on the system before tonight’s big reveal. A fairly reliable source told Kotaku that there will be two models of the PlayStation 4 system, priced $429 and $529, but those prices are subject to change. They also reported that the system would be available in November.
According to Kotaku’s source, a source that leaked the code names of both Sony and Microsoft’s new consoles, the system’s price isn’t going to be discussed at the event tonight. Obviously this information will be either confirmed or denied in a few short hours, but it’s interesting to say the least.
There was also a report that consumers will be able to control the PS4 using their smartphones, similar to Microsoft’s Xbox Smart Glass app. This would add another layer to Sony’s strategy to completely immerse the user in the PlayStation experience.
