Playstation 4 Release Date Announced

At the GamesCom conference, Sony got the jump on their console war with Microsoft as they announced the official release date for the Playstation 4. With over one million consoles pre-ordered already, gamers can get their hands on the Playstation 4 on November 15. The Washington Post spoke on this exciting news for the video game world.

The PlayStation will be launching in 32 territories, though it will reach Europe a few days after it hits the United States, on Nov. 29. Sony made several announcements about the console, including that it will be integrated with the social game-streaming network Twitch and that players who buy digital copies of games such as “Battlefield 4,” “Call of Duty: Ghosts” and “Watch Dogs” will be able to upgrade to PlayStation 4-compatible versions of those titles at a discount.

Ah yes, that’s the other cool thing to come out of GamesCom. Considering that the console won’t be backwards compatible and a few titles will have released on the PS3, Amazon is allowing people to “upgrade” to a PS4 version of current gen games for around $10 once they trade in their title.

Pretty cool, right?
