Sony just announced that it will begin selling its PlayStation 4 console on Nov. 15 and disclosed that more than 1 million systems have already been pre-ordered.
The news was delivered at the Gamescom conference in Germany.
Microsoft used the event to announce the launch lineup for its Xbox One console, show off PopCap’s upcoming “Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare” console game and detail a new program for independent game developers to produce Xbox One titles.
But Microsoft hasn’t disclosed exactly when the Xbox One will go on sale, saying only that it will arrive in November. Perhaps it was waiting for a cue from Sony and will now launch the system on Nov. 14.
Here’s an image of “Garden Warfare,” which follows the “Plants vs. Zombies 2” mobile game released last week for Apple devices:
