PlayStation 4 now available in India carrying a price tag of Rs. 39,990
Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 in India last month saying that the console will be available in retail and online stores starting January 6. The company has lived up to its word, as PS4 is now listed as 'in-stock' at leading online retailers, with most offering immediate shipping, indicating there's sufficient supply even after pre-orders have been shipped.

Sony PlayStation 4 carries a price tag of Rs. 39,990 with additional controller and the PlayStation Camera priced at an identical Rs 4,990. First-party gaming titles have been priced at Rs. 3,999 while third-party titles will range between Rs. 2,499 and Rs. 4,499.

The PlayStation 4 was launched in the US on November 15. Sony revealed it had sold more than 2.1 million PlayStation 4 consoles after less than three weeks on the market. This follows Sony's statistic that it had sold 1 million consoles on launch day.

The Sony PS4 is powered by an integrated CPU-GPU design, featuring a 8-core low power x86-64 AMD "Jaguar" CPU, coupled with a 1.84 TFLOPS AMD Radeon GPU. It also features a secondary processor that does the network processing tasks in standby mode, in order to optimise power consumption.

The PS4 features 8GB of GDDR5 RAM for memory, coupled with a 500GB hard disk drive. Also onboard is a Blu-ray disc and DVD drive. Connectivity options include 2 USB 3.0 ports, one AUX port, an Ethernet port, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 (EDR), an HDMI out port, and an optical-out port.

Microsoft's next-generation console, the Xbox One (Review), is the only real competition for the Sony PS4, especially in India, where the Nintendo Wii U has yet to make an appearance. Microsoft only gave a tentative India launch date for the Xbox One during the E3 2013 event, saying it would arrive by late 2014. Since then of course, reports have indicated a slightly earlier launch, by mid-2014
