3w ago - Sony President & CEO Jack Tretton cordially announced today that the PS4 videogaming and entertainment system is now available in North America alongside a PS4 Launch Games List below!
To quote: Today is a historic day for PlayStation - and gamers everywhere - as we usher in a new era of gaming with the North American launch of PlayStation 4.
We have poured an incredible amount of power and innovation into PS4 to bring you the most immersive, jaw-dropping gaming and entertainment experiences imaginable. Now you get to see for yourself why PlayStation is the best place to play.
This past week we celebrated the launch of PS4 with bi-coastal events taking place in New York City and San Francisco. I can't imagine a better way to introduce a new platform into the growing world of PlayStation than being in two of the biggest cities in the U.S. and live streaming all of the action to you.
Since we introduced PlayStation 4 earlier this year, feedback from the gaming community has been phenomenal. With media reviews saying that the PS4 is "just shy of perfection" and that it is "an impressive package for gamers," it's clear that PS4′s horsepower, deep social capabilities, network features, and amazing gameplay have struck a chord.
3w ago - Following up on the previous PS4 RLOD and PS4 Freezing & Overheating reports, today a new batch of PlayStation 4 bricking (such as THIS one) and failures has surfaced alongside a PS4 Launch Errors List and Fixes below.
To quote: Here's a list of issues plaguing the PlayStation 4 at launch, and how to fix them.
Astro A50s: Cannot Hear Other People Speaking
Everything appears to be hunky-dory with the Astro A50s, with the sound coming through the headphones just as you would expect, except for received chat audio. You can talk through the headset, but you can't hear others speaking.
A possible fix for this issue is to do the following:
1. Hold Home Button
2. Adjust Devices
3. Output to headphones -> All Audio
DualShock 4 R1 Button Sticking
There are several reports that units of the DualShock 4 appear to sport defective R1 buttons. After just a few hours of play, the R1 button seems to stick.
3w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman officially announced today that the PS4 launch has begun, and has shared some new PlayStation 4 videos below!

Meanwhile, the PlayStation team is holed up at The Standard, High Line, a luxury hotel in downtown New York City in preparation for one of the most dynamic launch events in gaming history (and psst: You're invited!).
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the week's buildup, including a dazzling interactive light show and live PS4 gameplay projected on surrounding buildings. If you're in the NYC area, this is one console launch you won't want to miss. And yep, we've even got a special order of PS4s on sale just for you.
In other launch-related news, I had a chance to speak with Sony Computer Entertainment President and CEO Jack Tretton about PS4′s unique place in PlayStation history.
3w ago - Guerrilla Games Director Steven Ter Heide invites fans to watch the Killzone Shadow Fall PlayStation 4 launch trailer below today!
To quote: The wait is almost over - Killzone Shadow Fall comes out November 15th in North America, with the UK and Europe to follow on November 29th!
We're thrilled to be able to show you the launch trailer for Killzone Shadow Fall. It's been an amazing journey getting here, and we're proud of what we were able to accomplish on the new PlayStation 4 hardware. Killzone Shadow Fall represents another big leap forward for us, both in terms of gameplay as well as technology.
When we began working on Killzone Shadow Fall, we set out to redefine the Killzone FPS experience. It had to cater to a new, more resourceful playing style, requiring the use of tactics and intelligence to outmaneuver and outsmart enemies. At the same time, we wanted the game to remain true to its roots as a highly visceral shooter.
As excited as we are to talk about where we've taken the story and gameplay in the Killzone universe with Shadow Fall, we're just as eager to showcase the numerous ways in which we've leveraged the raw horsepower of the PS4 to push the tech in our engine to jaw-dropping new...
