Shelly Palmer Radio Report – August 26, 2013

Sony’s PlayStation 4 will launch at long last in the United States on Friday, November 15 for $399. Two weeks later on November 29, it will be available in Europe for 399 Euros. First announced in late February, Sony’s newest console will launch with 23 games available on Day One, with another 10 being released by the end of 2013. This holiday season is one for Sony, as Microsoft will be releasing the Xbox One. In 2006, Sony’s PlayStation 3 had a very rocky start as many gamers were off-put by its $600 price tag. This time around, Sony seems to be pushing all the right buttons by selling its new system for $100 less than the Xbox One. Gamers are very happy and are pre-ordering the console in droves: pre-order counts for the PlayStation 4 have already passed the total launch sales numbers for the PS3. If you want to grab the latest and greatest, Sony’s PlayStation 4 will launch in the US on November 15 for $399. Good luck finding one.
