PS4 release date beats Xbox One to the line

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.

Away from games, we learned a bit more about Samsung's smartwatch, the Apple-pipping Galaxy Gear, expected to ship in late September.

Next up, Facebook announced the 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."

Where do you go next once you've made the world's best phone? If you're HTC, you make it smaller, shave off a few added extras and a few quid.

Based on the HTC One, the One Mini comes with the same great design, a high-res screen and a lovely Android experience for a mini price-tag.

Microsoft Surface Pro 128 GB

After a lightweight Windows 8 PC that runs all your apps, has a touchscreen and a stylus? Then the Surface Pro is for you.

As well as all that, there's an excellent Touch cover-cum-keyboard that essentially transforms the tablet into a notebook PC. A great machine at a reasonable price.

Google Nexus 7

The Nexus 7 is a remarkably solid all-rounder with impressive specs. With the latest version of Android on board, it comes with great battery life to boot.

While it might not tread much new tablet ground, the Google Nexus 7 is a well thought-out tablet and astounding value for money.

bundling FIFA 14 with the Xbox One
@daunorubicin to be honest FIFA actually puts me off buying an Xbox One.
@SameerAFC I am not going to go to bed with the devil because of some 40 quid incentive
