PS4 release date beats Xbox One to the line

Sony sneaks in first, but Microsoft gained a kick from FIFA 14

 PS4 release date beats Xbox One to the line 

Ladies and gentlemen, mark your calendars: Sony has announced the PS4 launch date, and it's not very far away. It'll go on sale in the US on November 15, and it'll reach the UK, Europe and Australia two weeks later on November 29.
There was so much PlayStation news this week that Sony barely paused for breath to confirm the price - $399 US, £349 UK, €399 EU - before firing more rounds from its announcement cannon.
Boom! Almost every PS4 will feature Remote Play streaming! Boom! The PS4 will have Twitch gameplay sharing and Sony Music Unlimited! Boom! Loads of indie titles are coming to the PS4 and PS Vita! Boom! Virgin Media will be the UK broadband partner! Boom! The PS Vita's getting cheaper! Boom! The list of launch titles is even bigger!

Microsoft didn't let Sony steal all the console thunder
That wasn't all. Fancy getting a PS3 for less money than ever before? Your wish is Sony's command: the super-slim 12GB PS3 is now just £160 in the UK, making it cheaper than two pints of lager in a London bar.
Sony has also announced an upgrade programme for PS3 gamers: for a limited period, gamers who buy certain PS3 titles - Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Watchdogs and Battlefield 4 - will be able to upgrade to the PS4 versions at a "significantly discounted price."
Microsoft had some news too. It revealed the Xbox One launch list and promised to bundle FIFA 14 with pre-orders. Hurrah for that, says Patrick Goss: "Microsoft has got back on the message it should have been hammering from the off. Who'd have guessed it? The Xbox One is a games console."

Samsung's wristy business

After a quick pause to mention Microsoft's Xbox One UI (you'll be shocked to discover that it looks like Windows Phone), it's time for a bit of nostalgia. Remember Game and Watch?
Nintendo's Game and Watch devices were brilliant: not only did they tell the time, but you could play games on them too. In completely unrelated news that's happening two decades later, Samsung's just had a brilliant idea.
It's going to make a watch that you can play games on.

Samsung's smartwatch could look rather a lot like this
We kid! Samsung's Galaxy Gear is a bit more ambitious than that. The Apple-pipping wonderwatch, expected to ship in late September, is Samsung's third attempt at a smartwatch - and while nobody knows what it looks like yet, that hasn't stopped us from carefully sifting through the Gear rumours to create a superb rendering of how it may appear.
Never mind its looks, though. What about the specs? Read the rest of this post ----->
