The PlayStation 4 will launch in Canada and the United States this November starting at a price of $430. A second PS4 model will also be available for $530, though this is not set in stone.
Pricing at this level falls in line with a past report, which suggested the system would sell for $400+ at launch.
A source from Kotaku also claimed something that’s not yet been heard in the scuttlebutt surrounding the platform. Gamers will be able to control the PS4 remotely through a tablet or smartphone, this person said, adding that players will also be able to chat with friends and buy games through their devices.
In addition, the source said “most” of the PS4’s online features will mandate a premium subscription. A name change is also in the works, the person said, claiming PlayStation Plus will be rebranded PlayStation World.
On top of this, the site’s source claimed every PS4 unit will ship with a PlayStation Eye and a new spectating feature will allow gamers to watch friends play games from their dashboard regardless of whether or not they own the game the other user is playing. One final piece of speculation is that the PS4 will support local network play through the PlayStation Vita.
