The answers to all your raging questions about Sony’s next generation console was revealed at Sony’s Press Conference which happened this morning. So here’s everything you need to know about the Playstation 4
The raging question on everyone’s mind – and wallet would be the price of the Playstation 4; well the Playstation 4 would put console gamers back a total of $639SGD and I would like to clarify that the aforementioned price is the Standard Retail Price so there might be some markups; prices might vary from retailer to retailer.
The console would be launched locally on the 19th of December 2013. Gamers can pre-order the PS4 beginning tomorrow 13th of November and pre-orders would only end until the 14th of December.
Accompanying the release of the console, Sony would also release a bunch of peripherals for the PS4 which includes Dualshock 4 controllers(comes in Black, Red and Blue), the Playstation Camera and even a vertical stand – yes, gamers would need to buy a stand if they want to keep their PS4s upright. The first 100 customers in line on launch day would stand a chance to win exclusive Sony Freebies such as T-Shirts, Vita TVs and even a 10 year Playstation Plus membership – yes … 10 years !
To celebrate the PS4’s release, Sony would be setting up their very first pop up store outside Wisma Atria from 19th of December 2013(PS4 Launch Day) to 1st of January 2014 where gamers would get to play the latest Playstation products and heck, they would be able to purchase their very own PS4!
Now what’s a console release without games right ? Sony also announced their official launch lineup for the PS4; a total of 22 games would accompany the launch of the PS4, they’re a mixed bag of big AAA games (Killzone Shadow Fall) and small indie gems(Resogun).
Last but certainly not least, the bundles, Sony has announced 4 pre-order bundles and they all range from $709 to $639 :
1. The PS4 System ($639)
This is the bare bones bundle that comes with a 1 month subscription of PS+. No boxed games included
2. The PS4 System with camera ($689)
Same as the bare bones bundle but with the Playstation Camera
3. PS4 “Battlefield 4” Bundle ($709)
The bundle for Battlefield fans, the bundle also comes with a 2 months subscription of PS+ and a $10 worth of PSN credits.
4. PS4 4 “Killzone Shadow Fall” Bundle ($699)
