Sony’s newest video game, the PlayStation 4, is now available in stores across the United States for $399 and is launching soon throughout Europe. Leading up to launch, the demand for the console was high, and Sony hopes to sell 5 million units by February. Sony will face stiff competition this holiday season from Microsoft, which is also launching a new video game console, the Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 beat the Xbox One to shelves by a week and is $100 cheaper, giving it two legs up over Microsoft’s newest console. The PS4 launched with 22 titles available on day one, available in stores and also as digital downloads. We’re transitioning into an all-digital culture, and the PlayStation 4 marks the true start of this movement in the home video game console realm. But with a hard drive that will hold less than a dozen games, will the PS4 make or break the digital movement? Find out for yourself and grab a PlayStation 4 today.
