The PlayStation 4 (officially abbreviated as PS4), is a video game console  from Sony Computer Entertainment. Announced as the successor to the PlayStation 3 during a press conference on February 20, 2013, it was launched on 15 November 2013, in North America, and 29 November 2013, in Europe and Australia. It competes with Nintendo’s WiiU and Microsoft’s Xbox1, as one of the 8th Generation of video game consoles. Its price is at the astronomical amount of 400-600 euros. However, in August 2013, Sony announced over a million preorders for the system were placed. On its North American launch date, one million PlayStation 4 consoles were sold. In the United Kingdom, the PlayStation 4 became the best-selling console at launch with 250,000 consoles sold in 48 hours, and in its first five weeks on the market in the UK, 530,000 units were sold. Worldwide, over 2.1 million consoles had been sold by 3 December 2013. On 7 January 2014, Andrew House announced in his CES keynote speech that the PS4 had sold 4.2 million units before the end of 2013, with over 9.7 million software sales. Like all the video games,PS4 has some problems. Some people have complained about these problems:
