PS4 rumored to launch in November, starting at $429

With less than 24 hours to go before Sony's press conference in New York City, more rumors have hit the Internet about what might be announced at the event. As we have reported, Sony is expected to officially reveal details about the PlayStation 4, the next version of its long running game console family.

The latest rumors come from Kotaku, who claims via unnamed but reliable sources that Sony is aiming to launch the PS4 in the US in November, with prices that could start at $429 for the lowest end console and $529 for the high end model. The article claims that the official pricing for the PS4 won't be revealed on Wednesday and that the final price could change between now and the PS4 launch.

The article adds that Sony will offer a way to give tablets and smartphones a way to control the PS4, including a way to buy downloadable games via those devices that are then sent to the console. Finally, the story says that the premium PlayStation Plus online service will get a name change to PlayStation World.

In related news, the Internet URL domain name investigator "superannunation" posted word on his Twitter page that Sony has secured several domain names related to the name "PlayStation Cloud". That would seem to be a big hint that the PS4 would have some kind of cloud-based file or game service.
