Sony's improved next generation gaming console, PlayStation 4 is reportedly going to hit stores in on November 15 and 29 in North America and Europe respectively, potentially clashing with the launch of rival Microsoft's Xbox One console.

The PS4 priced from 400 dollars is an improved version of the current PS3 which is almost seven years old now.

According to ABC News, the PS4 consists of an eight-core x86 processor and its 8 GB of RAM helps provide an extreme level of detail in games like 'Killzone: Fall' and 'Call of Duty: Ghosts'.

The gaming console also comes with a new DualShock 4 controller, which is equipped with a new share button for social media integration and a new sensor that will allow the PS4's Kinect-like camera depth-and-motion sensor to read where the player is.

On the other hand, Microsoft's Xbox One, priced 100 dollars more than PS4, having new TV and media center features, is expected to be launched at the same time, though Microsoft hasn't set a specific launch date.

Sony said that it has received more than a million pre-orders on the console, the report added. (ANI)
