PlayStation 4 Is Now Available

PLAYSTATION 4 IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

IT HAS ARRIVED! Today, Friday November 15, 2013 the Sony PlayStation 4 is now available in stores all across the U.S. and Canada, everywhere else by the end of the month.

For those who have been drooling since seeing the demonstrations at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) earlier this year, and all of the commercials, my favorite with the two friends fighting and racing against each other, you can now buy the PS4 right here from the Amazon.com link in slide show widget on the right! The link is for the game console and 1 controller only, with a suggested retail price of $399.

There are no games bundled with this game console. It makes it easier for the buyer should they want to get a different game, rather than the few games that are being bundled with the unit. I am also providing a link for an additional controller and one of the hottest games for the PS4 launch, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag. If you should want a different game or two, than make sure to go to the video games section within Amazon, after you add the PS4 to your shopping cart, to add your selected games as well.

With 10 times the power of its predecessor the PS3, the PlayStation 4 is set to launch with more than 20 different game titles. The list below shows only 20 games but I know from friends who work for Sony that there are a few more than the 20 listed below.

* – Angry Birds Star Wars
* – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
* – Battlefield 4
* – Call of Duty: Ghosts

  1. Thank you for the information about the PS4. My youngest nephew is crazy to get one. It’s good to know about the fact that it doesn’t come bundled with another game–it often isn’t one I want the kids playing anyway, or if it is they’re not interested in it. So I like the no-game decision on Playstation’s part. Will you be doing a similar article on the new Xbox 1 coming out? My other nephew is rabid to get that one.

    • Yes, I too don’t like it when all the offers are the console and the a game. Most times it’s a game I do not like. So when I saw that I could offer just the game console without a game, then that is why I chose to promote that instead. This way the buyer can chose a game of their choice or not chose a game. I don’t believe in forcing someone to buy something they don’t want. – Yes, I will be doing the same kind of blag post for when the Xbox One comes out in another two weeks. – Thank You for reading my post Max!

  2. I always seem to run a little slow in getting to the new systems and looking at finances I will be slow again. Are the old games compatible at all with the new system?

    • I’m the same way James but it has more to do with the fact that I work (design & test) video games everyday of the week, so I have no excitement to rush out and get a new console when it first comes out. It’s like a been there done that type of attitude. lol – NO, the older games for the PS3 will not be compatible with the PS4. – Thanks for reading my blog post.

  3. Hi. Nice post man! I would love to have money to buy it! Can you believe the PS4 will cost almost $2,000 (yes, 2 THOUSAND dollars) here in Brazil? Crazy, right?
    Anyway it is an amazing console!
    All the best!

    • Sorry for the late reply. Aksimet tagged you as spam. Glad I checked before I deleted you. But I know you. – Yeah, I heard. I actually heard a little more than $2000. That’s because there is way more demand than there is supply. I had to remove my Amazon banner from my website because they were charging $900-$1200 for just the base unit. When I contacted them and asked them why since the retail price is $399, they said they were out of stock and if customers really wanted to they could get the PS4 from a 3rd party source that would cost more. I was like, screw that! So I took the banner ad off my site.

    • You’re welcome Lawrence! Personally it will be a while before I get the PS4. Being that I work (design & test) video games for a living, and now write a webpage about them and the video game industry, I am in no rush to go out and get more video games. lol – Thanks for reading my post

  4. I wouldn’t have the patience to wait in line for this new PS4 but I cannot wait to get my hands on one to try it out! Thanks for the post!

    • Me either. I never ever wait in line for anything that I can buy over the internet. It doesn’t matter to me if I play it on day 1 of launch or day 10 after launch. Plus being in the video game industry working on video games all day everyday I am in no rush to get one when it comes out to begin with. lol – Thanks for reading my blog post Saranna! I’ll be doing a similar one in 2 weeks when the new Xbox One is released.

  5. Vid Games are awesome nowadays, I still remember my first Family Computer Console, it was a treasure to me. My 2014 project is a gaming setup tied with my online business setup of course.

    • I remember mine was the Intellevision game system then I had an Atari 2600 because I had friends who used to work for Activision and I would get free video games all the time. Then 3 years later they hired me to test games and I never had to buy another video game ever again, even if it was a game from another company because I had so many friends working in various companies.
