Sony announced a ton of details regarding the PlayStation 4 at its E3 press event in Los Angeles last night. While Sony had technically already unveiled the PlayStation 4 at a previous press event, it didn’t actually show off the console and many questions lingered following the event.
Now, many of those questions have been answered. For one thing, Sony displayed the console for the first time and announced it will be priced at $400 and will be available this holiday season. Users who want the PlayStation 4 Eye will need to cough up another 60 dollars. The PS4 has a 500GB HDD, giving users the same amount of storage the Xbox One offers.
When it comes to a policy on used games, Sony went with a hands-off approach, announcing there will be no new restrictions on used games. The console is offline capable, meaning users will not need to go online to authenticate their games. However, Sony will no longer offer online play for free. Users who want to play online will be required to have, and pay for, a PlayStation Plus subscription.
