At Gamescom 2013 event in Cologne, Germany last Tuesday, Sony announced that their much-awaited PlayStation 4 will be available in United States and Canada on November 15. It will also land in Latin America and Europe on November 29.

European countries set to get the upcoming game console before the year ends include United Kingdon, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Russia, Portugal, Poland, Norway, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland, Germany, France, Findland, Denmark, Belgium, and Austria. It’s the same for Australia and New Zealand.

In addition, PS4 will hit the shelves of the following Latin American countries:

  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
  • Mexico
  • Panama
  • Peru

What’s intriguing about Sony’s announcement, though, is that they did not mention a release for Japan. The country happens to be the company’s home country. Regardless, the long list of countries that the new console will land on is a thumb in the eye for their biggest rival, Microsoft, which recently scaled back the release plans for their Xbox One.

Meanwhile, Sony also unveiled the launch titles for their PlayStation 4:

  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Battlefield 4
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • #DRIVECLUB
  • FIFA 14
  • Just Dance 2014
  • Killzone: Shadow Fall
  • Knack
  • LEGO Marvel Superheroes
  • Madden 25
  • NBA 2K14
  • NBA Live
  • Need for Speed: Rivals
  • Skylanders Swap Force
  • Watch_Dogs

During the E3 2013 event last June, Sony announced that the PS4 will cost $399, 399 Euros, or 349 British Pounds.
