Kotaku: PS4 Out Nov, Two Versions Could be $429 and $529, Most Online Features Will Require Subscription, PS Eye With Every Console, New Controller Pics, Phone Control
Tomorrow all will be revealed, but we don’t like waiting a whole 24 hours, so luckily Kotaku claims that their source has spilled the beans.
All rumors should be treated as such, although this one is backed up by more photos of the rumored touchpad-enabled DualShock 4, viewable below.
Here’s what the source claims:
- The PlayStation 4 will be out this November in the United States.
- Pricing won’t be announced until later this year, but the current plan is to release two versions at $429 and $529. This may change. No details on what is different, but presumably it’s the HDD size.
- You will be able to control the PS4 remotely from your tablet or smartphone, this includes using the mobile to chat with your PS4 buddies or buy games which are then automatically downloaded to your PS4
- “Most” of the PS4’s online features will require a premium subscription to use, and this new premium online service will be called PlayStation World. It will replace PlayStation Plus.
- Every PS4 will come with a PlayStation Eye. No word on how much better this camera will be to the current one.
- A new spectating feature will let you watch other friends play games from your PS4’s dashboard. You don’t have to own their games to watch.
- The PS4 will support local network play via Vita.
