cordially announced today that the PS4 videogaming and entertainment system is now available in North America alongside a PS4 Launch Games List below!
To quote: Today is a historic day for PlayStation - and gamers everywhere - as we usher in a new era of gaming with the North American launch of PlayStation 4.
We have poured an incredible amount of power and innovation into PS4 to bring you the most immersive, jaw-dropping gaming and entertainment experiences imaginable. Now you get to see for yourself why PlayStation is the best place to play.
This past week we celebrated the launch of PS4 with bi-coastal events taking place in New York City and San Francisco. I can't imagine a better way to introduce a new platform into the growing world of PlayStation than being in two of the biggest cities in the U.S. and live streaming all of the action to you.
Since we introduced PlayStation 4 earlier this year, feedback from the gaming community has been phenomenal. With media reviews saying that the PS4 is "just shy of perfection" and that it is "an impressive package for gamers," it's clear that PS4′s horsepower, deep social capabilities, network features, and amazing gameplay have struck a chord.
With 23 launch titles, including Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack, and Resogun, you have no shortage of games that enable you to fully explore PS4′s capabilities and the expansive worlds being created by the industry's best developers.
True to our heritage, PlayStation 4 also delivers all of your favorite digital entertainment. We have thirteen digital entertainment apps
available today in the U.S., including Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Music Unlimited, NBA Game Time, Netflix, and NHL GameCenter Live. With PS4, you have the best games, movies, TV shows,and sports at your fingertips.
Of course, the PS4 journey has just begun. There are more than 180 games in development, including Destiny and inFAMOUS Second Son, and we have many more surprises to announce soon. In fact, we gave you a sneak peek of things to come last night with the announcement that the amazing team at Naughty Dog is bringing a new Uncharted game to PS4.
Thank you, PlayStation Nation, for your passion and continued support. You're the reason we continue to innovate, explore new entertainment possibilities, and push the boundaries of play.
