PS4 specifications – 500 GB hard drive, Dual Shock 4 costs $59

Tuesday, 11th June 2013 06:56 GMT By Brenna Hillier

In a press release marking today’s E3 press conference, Sony has given a number of new nitty-gritty details regarding the PlayStation 4′s hardware, pricing and accessories.

The PlayStation’s 4′s initial colour scheme is officially called “Jet Black” and launch models are known as the CUH-1000A series.

The console’s body has ben engineered to be slim and light, with linear flat form factors. The body is cosmetically divided into four sections, with buttons and disc slot between the four “blocks”.

The power indicator glows blue when on, and the sides of the console are slanted to allow easy access to control in either horizontal or vertical position but conceal cables.

At launch, peripherals will include a DualShock 4 Wireless Controller (RRP $59/€59/£54) and PlayStation Camera (US$59/€49/£44) in Jet Black.

While it did not confirm launch line up, Sony said there are 110 games in the works, and the number of developers with plans for the system has increased from 126 to 505. There are 30 titles in the work at 12 first-party studios. Of these, 20 will be available within one year of launch.

Although final specs are subject to change, the console apparently has a 500GV HDD as standard – although some of this will be reserved for system software.

Here’s a lovely table with some pertinent and impertinent facts:

    Dual Shock 3 in GAME is £49.99 so £5 more for a next gen controller isn’t a bad deal.

    @1 Yeah, it should be region free. Most of games I really enjoyed on PS3 never came out in Europe. And never will.
    Imported them ofc.

    @1 Is it region locked is a pretty big deal to me, as I’m sure it is to many others as well.

    We can only hope that Sony keeps the PS4 region free. I don’t see why they wouldn’t.

    That form factor is lousy. Why couldn’t they have made it like their line of new Blu-ray players? They look fantastic.

    PS I don’t want the goddamn camera so why make more landfill crap?

    Beginning to hate this coming generation.

    ^ The camera is an optional peripheral. I don’t want one either. I’ll take a new game instead.

    I don’t really care about the camera any which way, but I’ll probably keep it completely unhooked barring possibly performing a basic setup process in the very off chance I want/need to use it further down the road.
