A few weeks ago Sony released a statement telling gamers that the PS4 is capable of being turned on remotely when users use the Playstation app to purchase games. Upon purchasing the game the PS4 will turn on remotely and begin your download in order to allow the gamer to play their new purchase when they arrive home. This news was released by Sony President Shuhei Yoshida via Twitter. In addition to this news Sony also confirmed the upcoming consoles ability to support cross platform party chat between the PS4 and the Playstation Vita which is also exciting. Hope that you guys are as excited as I am for all the new features that we will gain access to upon the release of the new generation of consoles. Until then keep on gaming, winning, and having fun!

First Xbox One Ships from Factory

In addition to learning the actual release date for the console and that more units are now available for purchase than we had originally believed Major Nelson revealed to the gaming community that the first shipment of Xbox One consoles has been sent out of the factory. In the Major Nelson reveal he showed a pallet of consoles in the process of delivery with special instructions included not to sell or display the consoles until their release date on the 22nd of November. The initial price for a unit is marked at $500 which the company believes to be a fair price compared to the PS4 which they have said is worth $100 less than their asked price for the Xbox One. I hope this is as exciting for you as it was for me, we are growing closer and closer to getting our hands on the new generation of consoles!
