New PS4 1TB price and launch date announced
Sony has released the launch date and price detailing for the new 1TB PS4, with the new console landing just next week.
The so-called 1TB Ultimate Player Edition PS4 will be available on July 15, which is only just over a week away.
What’s more the 1TB PS4 will actually retail for the same original RRP as the PS4 — £349.99.
For a limited time at launch, retailers will bundle the 1TB PS4 with the PS TV, which is the microconsole capable of streaming PS4 content to a second screen.
“The PS4 Ultimate Player Edition brings all the best that PlayStation has to offer, with massive space to download and master the best exclusives,” explained Sony in a statement. “The timing has never been better, with PS4’s game offering continuing to expand in 2015 with cutting edge games like the highly anticipated Until Dawn, Batman: Arkham Knight, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Destiny and God of War 3: Remastered all arriving soon.”
You can pre-order the 1TB PS4 now from GAME and Smyths, who are both offering the free PS TV bundle deal.

The 1TB PS4 comes with a low power eight-core x86-64 AMD Jaguar processor and a 1.84 teraflops AMD RAdeon based graphics engine. It comes with 8GB of GDDR5 memory and of course that 1TB hard drive.
There’s a slight change in the internal hardware from the original PS4, with the 16 memory modules down to eight for a more energy efficient console. There’s also a smaller motherboard and reconfigured GDDR5 memory too.
The processor stays the same though, which won’t mean any performance upgrades at this stage.
