This is same as the PS4, but with one critical difference — Sony's console launched in the US and Canada, while the Xbox One launched into 13 markets, including Australia.

The PS4 will be available in Australia on 29 November, two weeks after its US launch.

Both consoles have had some hiccoughs at launch, with some PS4 users reportedly experiencing a Blue Light of Death, while a number of Xbox One owners are apparently suffering from a drive error that makes it impossible to read discs.
