PS4 released this November?

Sony's PlayStation 4 will be released this November in the US and most online services will be subscription-based, according to Kotaku

 

We're just hours away from the PlayStation event in New York and already gaming website Kotaku may have ripped the lid off a ton of announcements Sony was trying to keep under wraps. An article published on Kotaku earlier today, which cites a reliable industry source, states that the new PlayStation console will be (amongst other things) released in the United States this November.

The source has also revealed to Kotaku that the next gen console will be made available in two models. Right now, the plan is to sell them for $429 and $529, but this could be changed.

The article cites the source as saying that the PS4 device will come bundled with the new controller - revealed earlier and tricked out with a touchpad - but users will also be able to control the console remotely using a smartphone. Whether a smartphone can double as a control pad, or whether it's only function is that of remote control is unclear at this time.

The source also says that Sony looks set to follow the model of Micorosft's Xbox Live service and charge for most of the PS4's online content. The new service will be called PlayStation World and it will replace PlayStation Plus.

Luckily we don't have to wait all that long for Sony to confirm or deny all these details; the PlayStation event kicks off this evening at 11pm UK time. Stay tuned...
