Next-gen PlayStation reportedly coming out in November
| by Shunal Doke |
Sony’s PlayStation event, where the company is expected to unveil its next-gen console, is looming ever closer, and according to new reports, the new console will be out in November. According to Kotaku, the PlayStation 4 will be out in two variants, costing $429 and $529 (approximately Rs 23,000 and Rs 28,000) respectively. The website states that its source is the same one that had leaked the in-development names of the PlayStation 4 and the next Xbox (Orbis and Durango respectively).
Kotaku also states that the next PlayStation won't have a free online componenet like Sony's current-gen console. Instead, it may be following the path of Xbox Live, where users will have to pay in order to play games online. As long as Sony continues its current PlayStation Plus system, where it gives away free games, I doubt this will cause much of a problem among gamers.
A bit too literal, maybe
Sony will be holding its event in New York at 11:00 PM GMT (roughly 4:30 AM IST). At the event, we are expecting an announcement of the console along with a name and, perhaps, a couple of launch titles. The company may even announce some new plans for its handheld—the PlayStation Vita.
Sony has been counting down to its PlayStation event by releasing retrospective videos about the history of the PlayStation. The latest of the lot was a look at the PlayStation 3.
