Electronics giant Sony has unveiled the latest version of its PlayStation games console.
The PlayStation 4 features a new “slim and light” body and includes WiFi and a Blu-ray player as well as a 500GB hard drive.
Peripherals include the stand-alone DualShock wireless controller and a PlayStation Camera.
The company says the device will be in stores by Christmas and will retail for￡349 in the UK, £80 cheaper than rival Microsoft’s new Xbox One.
Unlike rival Microsoft, Sony says it will not restrict the use of loaned, gifted or pre-used games on the new console.
Microsoft has faced large levels of online criticism for implementing the restrictions and Sony’s highlighting of this difference between the two next-generation consoles could allow it to attract former Xbox fans to its platform.
Sony says it’s working with leading developers to bring more than 100 new games to the platform, including Destiny, Assassin’s Creed IV, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Mad Max.
