Playstation 4 Launches at Chelsea Best Buy
Almost nothing brings nerds throughout New York City together like a new video game console, and the release of Sony’s long-awaited Playstation 4 (PS4) is no exception. When the clock strikes midnight, gamers will finally be able to get their hands on a technological construct that is sure to suck up countless hours of their lives with its top notch graphics and, one hopes, quality games. Nice knowing you, PS3.
The new console costs a whopping $399, with games going for $60. The Playstation 4 boasts a varied array of launch titles, including first-party exclusives like Killzone: Shadowfall, Knack and Contrast, to name a few. The Playstation 4 will only have the next-gen market to itself for a week, whereupon Microsoft’s Xbox One will arrive, triggering another fanboy feeding frenzy and igniting the next round of the console wars.
For tonight, at least, the Playsation 4 gets the limelight all to itself. Sure enough, lines are already forming at Chelsea’s Best Buy location on 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue. For those without the interest or fanaticism to attend the launch themselves, allow Flatiron Hot! News the privilege of keeping you in the loop with audio and video from the epicenter of nerddom.
