Sony Computer Entertainment announced its PlayStation 4 earlier this year at a global presentation held in New York City, and today at E3, the company not only finally unveiled the console, but has also announced its pricing and availability.
Sony announced the PlayStation 4 will be available this holiday season for $399. This, of course, means you’ll get the PlayStation 4 console, the new DualShock 4 controller, an HDMI cable, power cable, USB cable and a mono headset. The PlayStation 4 console, as you can see from the image above, has finally seen the light of day and is much slimmer and streamlined than we originally anticipated it to be.
During its press conference at E3 the Sony revealed a host of new games that will be coming to the console, including Final Fantasy XV and cross-platform titles such as Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Sony also confirmed that over 100 games will be available within a year of launch and that it won’t place restrictions on how users use copies of its games bought on disc: users will be free to lend or resell the game when finished with. Further, games won’t need any kind of online activation.
