While Australian's wait until 29 November for the PlayStation 4 to grace our shores, the US and some other markets got their hands on the next-gen console on 15 November.
This review is the hardware component of the PS4 review from CNET. While we don't foresee a vastly significant difference between the software available in the US and that in Australia, we'll update this when we've spent time with the local retail version of the new PlayStation.
While we have given a score to the PS4, we acknowledge that a console is a "long game" and not something you can draw a line under so soon after launch. We anticipate that we will update this review — and possibly the score if required — in the days, weeks and maybe even months after the Australian launch.
