Xbox one and PS4 Release Dates
XBOX ONE and PS4 Release Dates
Sony today announced that Europe’s Azurite blue PlayStation 3 model will launch in the United States and Canada on October 8 exclusively at GameStop and EB Games.
The $250 bundle will include a super slim console, matching blue DualShock 3 wireless controller, and a 250GB hard drive. Preorders for the console are now open online and at all GameStop locations.
The system will only be available “for a limited time,” GameStop said in a statement. The new color option launched in Europe earlier this year.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 launches in North America on November 15, November 29 in Europe, and in 32 countries total by the end of the year.
As for XBOX ONE :
Microsoft’s Xbox One console may go on sale from November 8, according to a recently leaked retailer document, as reported by Kotaku.
The information–an internal email for a conference call outlining midnight store activity for upcoming major software (both current and next generation) includes Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and Call of Duty: Ghosts–was reportedly shared by staff at a marketing company responsible for advertising material and product placement at major US retailer Walmart. While unverified, the document shows a field that lists the Xbox One for Friday, November 8.
No official announcement has been made outlining the upcoming next-generation console’s release, and, as such, any date should be treated as rumour until confirmed by the Xbox creator. GameSpot approached Microsoft seeking confirmation of the date, but a spokesperson declined, saying, “Microsoft does not comment on rumour or speculation.”
Microsoft has said that the Xbox One will launch this November for $499/€499/£429/A$599.
PS4 Release Date :
Sony’s PlayStation 4 is one of the most anticipated releases of 2013 in the gaming world. Duking it out with the Xbox One from Microsoft, the PS4 is much more than a plain old games console, aiming to be a central hub for your digital home.
We now know that the PS4 will cost £349 in the UK. This is, on the face of it, a great price. After all six years ago a PlayStation 3 cost £425, and you can now buy a PS3 for £299. That’s a very minor increase for a very major upgrade. And when you consider the relative price of the £429 Xbox One the PS4 looks even better.
There is one minor caveat, however, in that we’re not entirely comparing Apples with Apples. The Xbox One has integral Kinect – the motion sensor input device that allows you to gesture in games. With the PS4 you have to purchase the broadly similar PlayStation Eye device. It will still be cheaper to buy the PS4 than the Xbox One.
The PS4 will be on sale from 29 November in Europe and on 15th November in United States.
