Sony PlayStation 4 is x86 and ships in November

As anticipated, Sony introduced its new PlayStation 4 console. Most of the recent rumors were true, the console is in fact based on PC hardware and features an eight-core AMD Jaguar APU, a next-generation AMD Radeon graphics chip capable of 1.84 teraflops (a Radeon HD 7970 is rated at 3.5 teraflops), 8GB unified GDDR5 memory with 176GB/s of bandwidth, a built-in HDD (expected to be 160GB and 500GB), a Blu-ray drive, USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1.

Oddly enough, Sony did not reveal the actual console, and details about the console's pricing are also missing in action. Sony said shipments to the US should start in November, and rumors point to a $399 and $499 price tag for the two SKUs. Anonymous rumors also point out that the European launch may have to wait until early 2014.

The PlayStation 4 will sport a new controller, the Dual Shock 4. This new peripheral still looks very familiar, it has a pair of analog sticks and the usual buttons, and it also incorporates a touchpad as well as built-in motion-control technology, that is tracked via a Kinect-like camera.
