Mere hours before the big PlayStation 4 reveal, a new report from Kotaku makes known that PlayStation 4 will be released in November in the U.S., will allow gamers to control the console using their smartphones or tablets, and will cost $429 and $529 for the base and high-end SKUs, respectively.
The rumor also states that “you’ll also be able to control the PS4 remotely from your tablet or smartphone. You’ll be able to use a mobile device to chat with your PS4 friends or buy games which are then automatically downloaded to your machine.” The latter falling in line with recent changes Sony has made to the PlayStation Store, which was expanded to browsers last month.
Another source told the site that, “every PS4 will come with a PlayStation Eye; that a new spectating feature will let you watch other friends play games from your console’s dashboard, even when you don’t own the game they’re playing; and that the console will support local network play via Vita.”
The more controversial portion of the report suggests that PS4 is “following the path first set by Xbox Live: our source says “most” of the PS4′s online features will require a premium subscription to use. Sony’s new online service will be called PlayStation World, our source says, replacing PlayStation Plus.”
It’s all happening very fast leading up to tomorrow’s epical reveal. Stay tuned.
