Rumor: PlayStation 4 Will Launch in November

With Sony's PlayStation announcement just a few hours away, you'd think the rumor mill would wind down and make way for the real announcement. This morning brings a fresh round of rumors regarding Sony's PS4 plans. According to Kotaku, we can expect a November launch for the console.

Kotaku cites a regular source as saying the PS4 will be available in November and will come in two different versions. Current pricing for the consoles is $429 and $529 for each of the two models, but don't expect Sony to announce that pricing today. According to Kotaku's source, pricing could change and Sony isn't announcing anything regarding price until later in the year.

Pricing and release date aside, this source also revealed that every unit will ship with a PlayStation Eye (similar to how every Xbox 720 will apparently ship with Kinect). Users will be able to control the device with their cell phone as well as buy games and interact with their PlayStation 4 friends.

Sony is expected to unveil the next generation of PlayStation at 6 p.m. ET today. Stay tuned!

    I'm just really interested in what the internal hardware specs are. Does it really use AMD hardware?

    I have 3 PS3's. 2 from release and 1 after the slim came out. I have bought and played maybe 5 games on them. My kids, maybe 10 or so. However, all 3 of them have had heavy use with literally tens of thousand of hours of streaming and movies. So in short, I could care less about games as much as it being even more integrated into the home network especially for home theater use. The ps3 still goes down as one of the best home theater devices ever...

    As both a PC and a console gamer, I'm excited for the new consoles, on both fronts.
