Excited? Andrew House, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment and Jack Tretton, President and CEO Sony Computer Entertainment America, present 24-year-old Joey Chiu of Brooklyn with the first of 444 PS4s to be sold at the PlayStation 4 North Ame


Sony's next-generation console, the PlayStation 4, was launched last night in America.

With a special event hosted by Sony Entertainment Network at New York's The Standard, 444 consoles were sold as fans camped and queued to get their hands on the latest PS4.

The console has 8GB of system memory, 500GB of storage and a Blu-ray player.

It will be competing against Microsoft's Xbox One and Nintendo's Wii U.

Joey Chiu, 24, was the lucky man, and biggest fan to be first in line, to get the first console to be sold.
