Your standing in line heart beating fast listening as the conversation over what your peers are going to do when they get their PS4 home and rip it out the box; of course the line is moving at the slowest rate possible but not even the jaws of life can pry you from your position for next-gen console that will have your new girlfriend thinking she is no longer the apple in your eye. Now that we have my personal problems out-of-the-way let’s continue on shall we.
With over 4,000 stores having their launch events tonight (not including Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target) the scene is going to look something like Sauron’s army from Lord of the Ring. Ok I’m done; the PS4 retails for $399.99 included with the system will be one Dualshock 4 controller featuring a touch pad, a mono headset and a 500GB hard drive.
The PS4 will connect to a TV only with a HDMI cable so if you think you’re playing your PS4 tonight on grandma’s floor model TV you have another thing coming, also free play is out the window a PS Plus subscription is required at $49.99 a year. The PS4 does come with a 30 day trial of PlayStation Plus but look on the bright side with Black Friday around the corner prices are sure to be cheaper for subscriptions and other accessories of your choice. The 3-D PlayStation Camera is sold separately for $59.99 adding features, one with such the ability to sign into your profile using facial recognition.
No more pre orders that ship sailed a while ago; GameStop, Target, Wal-Mart and Best Buy are planning to have extra PS4 units available on release day.
