Sony showcased the PlayStation 4 big time at Gamescom in Germany last week, using the event to announce the PlayStation 4 launch date (just as we predicted they would, back in April), and to reveal several new PlayStation 4 games as well.
And the console was well received among gamers and the press at Gamescom, as the PlayStation 4 has officially won the “Best hardware” award at the show. In addition, the “Best console game” was given to Destiny for the PlayStation 4 as well.
Overall, Gamescom saw attendees rise to over 300,000 this year, with all the big console makers and game publishers present. On the first day of the event, Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 launch date: November 15, 2013. They also revealed 15 new games for the console, most of them indie titles.
