PS4 The game is on.

The PlayStation 4 will go on sale later this year and it'll be cheaper than the Xbox One - $399 in the US, £349 in the UK and €399 - compared to $499 and £429.

Following the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Sony Computer Entertainment appears to have won the first major battle against the Microsoft Corporation in the war of new video game consoles between the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.

The PS4 itself was shown off for the first time at E3 and it's black, just like the Xbox One.

"It is a design that is sleek and visually good wherever it is placed," said Andy House, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment said during the reveal. And that's probably true, or at least, it's fair to say that the PS4 isn't any more obtrusive than the PS3 was. But it still looks a bit bulky at first glance, like an onyx coffee table book that you keep propped up by your television.

There are over 140 games in development currently for the PS4, including 40 that include "experiences" that are exclusive to PlayStation. But just to remind you all, that "experiences" don't mean the full game.

If you're watching the live stream  don't worry. They're better than that, easily. In fact, the graphics are definitely more impressive in person than any picture or stream of them you've seen so far.
