PlayStation 4 out in November, prices listed - rumour

The rumour mill is in overdrive this morning, with less than 24 hours before Sony announces the future of PlayStation.

A "reliable source" told Kotaku that Orbis -- the new PlayStation's codename -- will be released in the US in November this year with two models, priced at at $US429 ($415) and $US529 ($511).

That doesn't mean much for Aussies. The PS3 was released in the US in November 2006, but didn't make it to Australia until March 2007.

The source also claims that Sony is following Microsoft's Xbox Live paid subscription. PlayStation World will be a premium online subscription to replace PlayStation Plus and be required for most games -- it's unknown if this is related to the PlayStation Cloud rumours.

Other tidbits trickling through suggest every console will come with a PlayStation Eye and that you might even be able to watch your friends playing games -- freaky!

Smartphones and tablets have also been thrown in as a means to control the console when you're out wasting time on life's other demands.

PlayStation 4 out in November, prices listed - rumour Comments

With the Aussie price of games coming down and the price difference between consoles shrinking, i'd expect to see AUD$499 and AUD$599. Much better than the ridiculous AUD$999 the Ps3 was originally for the 60gb. Already got alarms set for tomorrow :D

Having a Paid subscription service seems like a stupid idea, PlaystaionPlus is an awesome service and Sony should stick with that.

I guess we have to wait and see.
I like the idea of using phones to continue games. The NBA 2K13 app for your phone doesnt try to be the game, but adds cool mini games that keep you entertained and build on the game too. I hope more games have that.

I REALLY hope you dont have to pay to play online like XBox.

Knowing how good Australia gets treated the $400 console will probably cost like $800 here.
I hope they keep the PS+ feature, I love it, downloaded sleeping dogs but still haven't played it. Hopefully it won't be too expensive and a new dashboard because the XMB sucks
Well I'm kind of going to expect a pay to play online scheme. But if it means more features and such, then I'm down for it....

Heh.
'Other tidbits trickling through suggest every console will come with a PlayStation Eye and that you might even be able to watch your friends playing games -- freaky!'

I'll play naked that'll stop people watching me. What a silly idea if true. [Facepalm]

Or maybe it will encourage people to watch you *_*
watching my mates play games - that's something that giant killer crabs would love.

if playing games online needs a subscription... strike another x against the ps4 for me.

You know that's one feature I couldn't care less about next gen. An online rental service just doesn't appeal to me, I like to own my games and preferably physically too so I don't have to be online with my game or tied to one console (that's if that activation thing don't become reality).
Can see it now, hairy, obese guys will be inviting little kids to watch them play games naked.
Even though I have a PS3. I'm more biased towards Xbox. I'll wait and see what MS bring to the plate. before I spend $600 on a new system

I'm not too sure what they'll bring to the plate, but they've said a couple of times their focus is entertainment and being the center of the livingroom, so safe to assume the new Xbox will reflect that because that's what they're aiming for.

I prefer physical copies aswell, I only get them because they are free via PS+ and you get access to betas and stuff.
playstation plus is a pretty cool service since get a lot more then you pay for, but if they start charging me to play online i will be soooo pissed it's not even funny, seriously, one of the very many reasons i perfer ps3 is because it has free online! for me personally, i wasn't going to buy any of the next gen systems until i see a game (that is already released) that makes me want to buy it, plus i am taking the pc route these days so the 8th gen don't concern me too much. back to my main point, sony is quite famous for it's online service, since it does everything xbox live does (except party chat, which is a bummer), it has ps plus (like i said, at least $250 worth of content "given free" each year) and FREE ONLINE with no catch.
so don't **** this gen up sony, or else no one will head straight for your platform. :D
I think maybe because the PS4 is said to run PS3 games then it would make sense that the Plus service is upgraded so that existing PS3 users pay the same but users of PS4 pay extra..
I'm happy to pay, PS Plus has been GREAT!
all i want is 2 know wen this game is going 2 be in stores & its real price in trinidad & tobago dollars [Facepalm]
