Sony has announced the PS4 launch date, and it's not very far away. It'll go on sale in the US on November 15, and reach the UK, Europe and Australia two weeks later on November 29.
Sony barely paused for breath to confirm the price - $399, £349 UK, €399 - before firing more rounds from its announcement cannon. Remote Play streaming, the inclusion of Twitch gameplay and an expanded list of launch titles all made the news. Microsoft had some news too. It revealed the Xbox One launch list and promised to bundle FIFA 14 with pre-orders. Hurrah for that, says Patrick Goss.
Next up, Facebook announced the Internet.org project to make friends with the billions of people who don't have internet access. But columnist Gary Marshall reckons "This isn't about making the world a nicer place. It's about playing nice for Wall Street."
