PS4’s North American launch heralds the dawn of a new gaming generation, and today we’re upping the ante with an interactive event called First to Greatness. Using DualShock 4’s Share button, you’ll capture and upload videos of your conquests across 64 challenges detailed on the First to Greatness site (see the full list here). The challenges are spread across a who’s who of PS4 launch titles.
Today’s show is momentous! With PS4 in the wild in North America, we take a look back at the best of a generation.

With just hours to go until PS4’s debut in North America, it’s time to take a closer look at PS4’s new UI — it’s a slick little piece of work dubbed the Connected User Experience.

It won’t be long now! PS4 is is just hours from making its grand debut and lines are filling up at retailers nationwide.
