PlayStation 4 is out now in the UK and Europe, and PlayStation’s European boss Jim Ryan has penned a blog to discuss the big day and what lies in store for PS4 in years to come.

We covered the PS4’s UK and European launch in pictures, along with console essentials. Hit the link to see what went down.

The blog was posted on PS Blog EU, during which he wrote, “Today, in 20 countries across Europe and the wider PAL region, PlayStation 4 goes on sale. It’s a huge day for everyone here at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and, more importantly, it’s a huge day for gamers. After years of hard work from our brilliant hardware teams, the most powerful gaming console ever created is now in your hands and you can finally experience our vision for the next-generation of gaming.

“Since PS4 was first introduced to gamers at our New York event back in February, we’ve been happy to see our decision to create a sophisticated, connected and gamer-focussed console resonate with both our community of players and the media alike. Critics have hailed it as “a pure gaming thoroughbred” and “an exceptionally well-crafted console”, and we’re confident you’ll agree.”

He then championed launch day titles Killzone Shadow Fall, Battlefield 4, Resogun, FIFA 14, Call of Duty Ghosts, Knack, and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, before flagging up such future releases as Destiny, inFAMOUS Second Son, DRIVECLUB, The Order: 1886 and, “a brand new Uncharted adventure.”

Ryan added, “Our journey has only just begun.”
