PS4 Available Now in North America

Jack Tretton's Avatar Posted by President & CEO

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. With 23 launch titles, including Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack, and Resogun, you have no shortage of games that enable you to fully explore PS4’s capabilities and the expansive worlds being created by the industry’s best developers.

True to our heritage, PlayStation 4 also delivers all of your favorite digital entertainment. We have thirteen digital entertainment apps available today in the U.S., including Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Music Unlimited, NBA Game Time, Netflix, and NHL GameCenter Live. With PS4, you have the best games, movies, TV shows,and sports at your fingertips.

Killzone: Shadow Fall

Of course, the PS4 journey has just begun. There are more than 180 games in development, including Destiny and inFAMOUS Second Son, and we have many more surprises to announce soon. In fact, we gave you a sneak peek of things to come last night with the announcement that the amazing team at Naughty Dog is bringing a new Uncharted game to PS4.

Thank you, PlayStation Nation, for your passion and continued support. You’re the reason we continue to innovate, explore new entertainment possibilities, and push the boundaries of play.

:( I wished EU had it today too. So sad we have to wait two more weeks. :( Congrats to all the lucky gamers that have it already


November 15th, 6:27 am

yeah you bet dude waiting 2 more weeks will be a pain, its already a pain for me to see US citizens playing it already and we have to wait 14 more days grrrrrrrrrr.

MP3 support or I wont buy… I know its a small reason not to buy one, but come on… this can easily be patched though… and I have a ton of PS1 and 2 games… Id like to continue playing them but I dont have a working ps2 and only have a slim ps3… this is nonsense

NoGodsOnlyMan said:

November 15th, 6:34 am

yeah… just ummm, make the time go faster so that my PS4+Killzone from amazon arrive quicker!!!

PS brand really brought a lot to this launch and that is the main reason i decided to take the early adopter risk and support what can only be described as the console gamers want AND deserve

You all at Sony PS know we love the PlayStation, so game on and hello greatness

Sony, please.. came back to be the Sony of PS1 and PS2 era. Learn about your wrong moves with PS3.

You have powerful franchises to win this generation, you just need to use them:

God of War
Syphon Filter
Heavenly Sword
The Last of Us
Twisted Metal
Ratchet & Clank
Sly Cooper
Jak & Daxter
Ape Escape
Gran Turismo

The are franchises people know and love, and are the face of PlayStation. Some of them never saw the light of day on PS3, so many gamers are asking for them to come strong on PS4.

And, of course, come up with new IP. You need to invest in these classics IP listed and creating new ones.

Sony need to listen more to the gamers. I wish you all of luck. I had a PS1, a PS2, PS3, PSP and Vita, and will have a PS4 soon. Please.. no more arrongance, no more untruth promises. More games, more classic IP and more new IP, better online infraestructure, better support.

Sony has EVERYTHING in hands to win this generation that starts today, you just need to manage your powerful weapons, which I listed above.

Thank you.

Meh, wake me up when the Japanese games finally come out. Worst PlayStation launch ever. Virtually NOTHING to play.

I hope you guys realize that Mexico is actually part of North America and yet we are getting the Europe release date

Always enjoy your words of wisdom after a major announcement/launch, Jack! Now, back to waiting patiently for my Amazon order, playing games Guacamelee on my Vita.

iceboy9020 said:

November 15th, 7:16 am

Mr. Tretton. When will the guys who couldn’t get it today be able to buy one?

Zionine said:

November 15th, 7:26 am

Lol @Musikheals… Dude. It’s the PS4 launch time frame.. of course they’re going to hype it.. but they even included PS3 content in their launch announcement: TLOU DLC. Rofl

I want the PS4… but whenever they’re available to the public… and not just the overly dedicated.

The PS4 looks great next to my TV. Too bad it’s just a big, shiny black brick right now since I’ve been stuck on the “Please wait…” screen for the past hour while trying to sign into PSN.

Thank you for bringing in this next generation with the power and performance to back it up! Much desired success for Sony, as only that will bring us better games! Thank you!

Now Available but not one store has it anymore here…..smh

Superstone said:

MP3 support, 3D blu ray support and Backwards compatible. I have spent thousands of dollars on PSN title and want to continue to play them in the next gen.

TwinDad said:

November 15th, 7:53 am

Whomever on Amazon got notified that their pre-order got upgrade to Launch day, enjoy what was to be my console.

I’m not buying one until I can play a RPG game on it. I looked at the launch window games and there was not one RPG to find, and far too many shooters.

It sure is a nice looking system, I just wish the internet traffic was as state of the art. Trying to log in has been nothing but a headache. I would really like to play something on this new machine. Thanks guys.

Superstone said:

November 15th, 8:16 am

And some sort of reverse remote play so I can play my Vita games on a large screen, if it doesn’t already do so

Great to see the PS4 is finally here.

Also, you can keep your PS3 if you want. Just sayin’. :)


November 15th, 9:41 am

@34 you have to keep your PS3 because Sony made a stupid decision not to make the PS4 backwards compatible.

Dark Cloud 3 coming to PS4?


November 15th, 10:06 am

My system keeps freezing. 6 hours and still can’t play. Not impressed. COD Ghosts says “installing content. Please wait.” So annoyed.

No Blu-Ray 3D support? Nice Sony, nice that you dropped support for the Sony 3D television I bought.

D-Squad3 said:

November 15th, 11:52 am

Mr. Jack Tretton himself, would love to meet you one day.

DecadanceFantasy said:

November 15th, 11:56 am

I’m excited for the PS4 though I am going to wait until FFXV comes to the US for one. That is the game I really want to play. Other RPG’s can apply too.
I’m bad at shooters, racers, candy pop makers. Wait I might be good at the last game.

Good luck to all you PS4 users out there!
