Sony will launch the PlayStation 4 in November, according to a rumor from Kotaku, which cites a reliable source that’s familiar with Sony’s next-gen console plans.
The PlayStation 4, codenamed Orbis, will debut tomorrow at Sony’s PlayStation Meeting 2013 in New York. If Kotaku’s information is accurate, Sony has two models planned for the new console. We won’t hear pricing. According to the report, Sony is throwing around numbers upward of $400 or $500.
Sony’s next-gen console may integrate tablet and smartphone functionality. With this, you could use your device to control the console remotely. You could chat with friends on PlayStation Network or make game purchases from the store, which would then download automatically to the system.
PlayStation Eye will also come with every PS4, says the report.
Furthermore, Sony recently registered a handful of domains for “PlayStation Cloud.”
