Release Date Announced For 1TB PlayStation 4 in Select Areas

| 22 Jun 2015 15:03

The 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition will launch on July 15 in "select Europe and PAL territories," Sony has revealed.

The 1TB PlayStation 4 will offer "twice the storage of the existing PS4," the blog post reads. "You'll be able to download more of the games you love to your PS4, extend your play with more great add-on content and save and share even more of your best gaming highlights."

Certification documents that were recently made public by the FCC confirmed that Sony had registered a pair of new "Computer Entertainment Systems," with one featuring the impressive 1TB hard drive. Earlier this month we reported that, in April, Sony filed a request to the FCC asking that they delay revealing details about the equipment to the public in order to avoid giving its competitors "an unfair advantage in the market."

The announcement comes two weeks after Microsoft revealed the Xbox One, which comes with a 1TB hard drive as well as a new controller design. Buyers in select regions also got a free copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection with their purchase.

There is currently no release date for the 1TB PS4 in other territories. As for the price, Sony recommends you speak with your local retailer.
