According to a press release issued by SCEI, the PlayStation 4 console (that is just $399!) will include a 500GB hard drive. As for colors available upon launch, it looks like it will just be the jet black shown previously.
As for accessories, both the DualShock 4 and PS4Eye (they call it the PlayStation Camera) are set to cost $59.99/€59.99/£54 and $59.99/€49.99/£44.99, respectively. Because of the fact that the PS4Eye is going to be sold separately, and isn’t listed on the ‘included’ section, it doesn’t look as though it will be bundled with the console, but we’ll let you know if that changes.
What you can expect in the box, in addition to the PS4 itself, is a DualShock 4, a mono headset, an HDMI cable (which is the only other AV output, in addition to the digital out (optical) port), and a USB cable.
Do you think 500GB will be enough? Are you glad the DualShock 4 controller is under $60? Let us know in the comments below.
It’s almost too big to judge. There’s so much to GTA 5 – so much world, so much story, so many characters, so much to do – that it all gets a little overwhelming, hard to get a handle on. Yet this game is in many ways the culmination of Rockstar’s work of the last ten years, rolling in everything its learnt from GTA 4, its DLC extensions, Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3.
A sprawling, open-world crime epic, with three protagonists, three interweaving storylines and a setting that encompasses a huge urban area and a sizable chunk of the coast and open country that surrounds it, GTA 5 makes you rethink how you use words like ambitious. There aren’t many developers with the talent and expertise to build something like this. There are even fewer with the money to.
Sony & Microsoft are about to enter a digital fistfight this November, when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles go head-to-head at retail. Typically separated by months or even a year, the two platform holders will instead meet to decide the fate of the 8th generation – or at least, its opening skirmish – by launching just one week apart.
In a Public Relations duel dogged by unfortunate incidents, from ill-prepared press gatherings to comedically inept conferences (here’s looking at you Microsoft), Sony’s level-headed consistency has won them plenty of plaudits, but just how does the company plan to match Microsoft’s most recent gamble, a free copy of FIFA 14 with every European pre-order? Speaking to MCV on Thursday, SCEE President Jim Ryan ruled out any similar moves from Sony, on account of the console’s already staggering success.
Having shifted more PS4 pre-orders by September of this year, than the company did actual PlayStation 3s during its opening quarter of sales, Ryan believes no additional incentives are necessary. With 1 million pre-orders already taken, it’s clear the PlayStation 4 requires no extra incentives to sell, though Ryan’s comments do seem to indicate the obligatory and highly marketable appearance of official bundles at a later date, perhaps following a slowdown in sales.
While Sony has never been averse to packaging triple-A titles alongside its home consoles or even controllers – the new GTA 5/ PS3 Slim bundle being just the latest example – the Japanese giant lags someway behind Microsoft’s obvious bundle-mania.
