Today’s the day, November 15 is the launch day for the PlayStation 4 in America, players will start lining up at their game shops for their day 1 purchase. We have some info on what’s in store for you, from the GUI, to the software line up up to the PS Plus subscription.

The PlayStation 4 will be having a brand new user interface (called the PlayStation Dynamic Interface) replacing the old Xross Media Bar or XMB, let’s see if there is a dramatic improvement on the interface. The video demonstration was conducted at IGN showcasing the new user interface.


One of the cool feature of the PS4 is the Remote play function, where your PS$ will stream to your PlayStation Vita where can play PS4 games on it as long as your Vita is still connected to the PS4 via WiFi, so you can play your PS4 games in your bedroom with your Vita while your PS4 is just sitting in the living room.
