PS4 launching Nov. 15 in North America; PS Vita price cut to $199
In other news, the struggling PS Vita is finally getting a price cut to $199, and those expensive memory cards it requires will be dropping in price as well. This should boost sales, but it's still up against tough competition in smartphones and Nintendo's 3DS, which has seen a resurgence since its launch struggles. Sony highlighted several indie games it hopes will get the PS Vita back in the spotlight like the crazy-looking Murasaki Baby. Borderlands 2 will also come to the handheld, so hopefully that does well.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, N++, The Binding of Issac: Rebirth, Volume, Fez, Wasteland Kings, and Rogue Legacy will launch first on the PS4 and PS Vita. Other games highlighted include Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, from the developers of Dear Esther, and Shadow of the Beast. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag got some love, and Minecraft is making its way to Sony, too. That game is everywhere these days.
In other news, Twitch streaming is coming to PS4, and Gran Turismo 6 will launch on PS3 on Dec. 6.
This should be a fun holiday season for gamers everywhere.
