AU Shippin' Out November 25-30: PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4 hits Australia this week with console-exclusive launch titles Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall.

by

The next-generation console wave continues with this week's Australian release of Sony's PlayStation 4. The console comes with a recommended retail pricing of A$549.

PS4-exclusive games Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall will be available at retail upon launch. Action 3D platformer Knack sees players take the role of titular character Knack, a creature who has the power to incorporate ice, metal and other matter into his body. This skill grants new abilities as he shifts and changes in each level.

First-person shooter Killzone: Shadow Fall is the sixth entry into the PlayStation-exclusive Killzone series. The game's story picks up where 2011's Killzone 3 left off and takes place in the year 2390.

Game director Steven Ter Heide described the length of the campaign as "well over 10 hours for most gamers". The game's multiplayer mode will also feature dedicated servers.

Retailer Dick Smith will be hosting a PS4 midnight launch event for Aussie gamers wishing to pick up a console once the clock ticks over to November 29. Participants are required to pre-register their attendance at the event and can go into the draw to purchase one of 300 consoles on the night. Additional details, including how to pre-register, are available at the event's Facebook page.

The PlayStation 4 will launch in Australia on November 29. For more details on games out this week, check out the list below.

X1 > PS4. That is all. Although I do wish Killzone was not a PS exclusive.

I lay-by'd my PS4 on August 20 at EB they have told me I will definitely NOT get mine till next year some time.. I rang EB head office to confirm those jerks indeed confirmed my inner most fears.. I had 200 dollars owing on my Xbox one on launch day now mind I did lay-by this only 4 - 5 weeks ago under the assumption I would receive a day one copy of the console and the FIFI 14 game as said everywhere on the net.. well because they said look mate we will transfer some of your ps4 money over so you can take your Xbox one today I said well since I will most definitely NOT get my ps4 till next year.. well ok.. well at the stroke of a few keystrokes they had changed my ps4 pre order date from august to November throwing me even further down the line.. also said to me that I had missed the cut off date for my Xbox one Fifa 14 game.. man I hate #EB pfft I also traded like 100+ Xbox 360 and ps3 games in one a level 2 card.. still only getting no more than $10 for the odd game and sadly 2 - 3 dollars on most others.. EB sucks ass

Do I have my location set as Australia or something? Because why in the world would this be on the front page feed if I didn't have my location set as Australia...

@kane6911 That's cos the minimum wage in Aus/NZ is a lot higher than the US

@kane6911 Both the Aussies and us here in New Zealand are actually quite lucky this time around. The price isn't as high as it would have been if the Aussie dollar wasn't so strong right now.

@neowarrior121 I see that the article was written by Zorine, and because she works for GS Australia the article was likely skewed towards that audience.

@hadlee73 @RicanV The interface is great, the graphics are superb and I find myself wanting to share more content than I thought I would. 

They make it real easy to share everything.
