At this year’s E3, Sony officially unveiled its next generation console – the PlayStation 4. Priced $100 less than its direct competitor, the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 will retail for $399.99 in the U.S., £349 in the UK and €399 across Europe and will be available this holiday season. Sony’s next generation console is built around a custom chip that contains eight x86-64 cores and a state-of-the-art 1.84 TFLOPS graphics processor with 8GB of GDDR5 unified system memory.

Perhaps the biggest announcement during Sony’s press conference is the company’s decisions to not impose restrictions on secondhand games – a move many consider a direct blow to the Xbox One’s controversial digital rights management.
