Reading time is around minutes.

A big day for all Play Station fans. Sony officially announced the release date for their new console Play Station 4, it will be available on November 15 in the US, and 14 days later in Europe. So far there are more than 1 million preorders for the console, and sales predictions are very bright for Sony. Today on the Gamecom Sony presented a lot, and we will do a quick review for you of the most important parts of the presentation.


First thing is the interface of the new console which you can see in the video below. It feels very fluid and fast, and has tons of other features like uploading  screenshots to social networks, watching other players streams through the integrated app and other interesting stuff. They also announced 15 PS4 exclusives, and some of them will be indie titles. Other blockbuster games that were presented are new Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag, Batman: Arkham Origins, Shadow of the Beast, Watch Dogs, Minecraft and many other great titles. Also Sony said that users who buy Call of Duty: Ghosts, Watch Dogs, Assassins Creed IV or Battlefield 4 for PS3 will be able to purchase digital downloads of the same games for PS4. We can expect more titles with this feature in the future.

Beside games, Sony also presented the alternative versions of their DualShock 4 controller which will come in blue and red colors at a price of $60. They  also focused a lot on PS Vita, which will allow users to continue to play the games they stopped playing on the PS4 in case they decide to go somewhere or if the TV is just occupied by someone else at the moment. Price of Vita has dropped from $249 to $199, and Sony also promised to significantly drop the prices of PS Vita memory cards which were ridiculously expensive comparing to other memory cards. Almost all games for PS4 will be available on PS Vita via the Remote Play feature.
