Gamers, you've now got at least one date to circle on your calendars.
At the Gamescom video game trade show in Germany on Tuesday, Sony announced the PlayStation 4 will go on sale Nov. 15 in North America at a price of $399.
The new game console will be rolled out to 34 countries before the holiday season, with a game line-up that includes Call of Duty: Ghosts, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Ubisoft Montreal's Assassins' Creed IV: Black Flag and the ever-popular world-building game Minecraft, as well as an upcoming roster of small and unique independent games, such as the made-in-Toronto gems Rogue Legacy and N++.
The announcement now shifts focus to Microsoft, who have yet to reveal a launch date for their upcoming $499 Xbox One console other than to say they plan to have it in stores in November. So maybe do just a first draft of that holiday wish list for now.
