The PlayStation 4 has gone on sale in the US, with eager gamers queuing for hours to get their hands on the highly- anticipated console.
Long queues formed outside stores across the country throughout Thursday, and many shops opened at midnight to cope with demand.
Sony’s latest release comes just at the right time ahead of Christmas, and crucially one week before Microsoft’s Xbox One hits the shelves.
Gamers in Britain have a while longer to wait for the PS4, with its release here planned on November 29.
The console is Sony’s first new home system in seven years, and it has already sold more than one million to retailers and hopes to sell more than five million globally by the end of March.
