The video also shows a 500GB hard disk drive; 8GB of GDDR5 memory (eight on each side of the main processor for a total of 8GB); a secondary processor for network processing with low power consumption; two heat pipes for the heat sink; an 85-mm-diameter centrifugal fan, and ports for USB 3.0, Ethernet, HDMI, optical audio output and an AUX connector for the camera.
The PlayStation 4 is set to release November 15 in the U.S. and November 29 in Europe. It'll be priced at $399.
