November 15. That's the day Sony unleashes the PlayStation 4, the long-awaited follow up to the company's PlayStation 3, a machine that debuted all the way back in 2006. The road leading up to launch has been tedious and bloodied by an intense rivalry with Microsoft's Xbox One, due exactly one week later.
Both new consoles arrive with their own marketing spin designed to claim the gaming throne: at $400, the PS4 is the “affordable” next-gen machine, whereas the $500 Xbox One promises an ambitious, always-on integration with live TV that aims to subsume your cable box.… Read more
The PlayStation 4 is scheduled to be released on November 15. Sony's latest console is sure to be a hit this holiday season, despite having a few drawbacks that could deter potential buyers. The biggest complaint is the lack of backward-compatibility with PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 games, a possible deal breaker for some.

Computer consoles, buttons, and LEDs with unclear purposes surround you. It looks like someone turned the lights off on the bridge of an alternate-universe Enterprise.… Read more
With the imminent release of the Sony PlayStation 4 console, we can now take a look inside the exact retail box that will be sitting on store shelves starting November 15 (if they're not all sold out, that is).

Two Russian cosmonauts carefully passed the Olympic torch Saturday morning -- in space.
Expedition 37 Flight Engineers Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazanskiy carried the unlit torch, which will be used to light the Olympic flame at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, with them at the start of a nearly 6-hour spacewalk outside the International Space Station.
After maneuvering to take some stunning photos of the torch floating above Earth, NASA said Kotov and Ryazanskiy stowed it safely back inside the airlock before continuing to perform maintenance on the space station as it orbited some 260 miles above Earth.… Read more
