Earlier this month Microsoft announced their 1TB Xbox One console, it was only a matter of time before Sony followed suit. A few hours ago via the PlayStation Blog Sony unveiled the 1TB Ultimate Player PlayStation 4.


Best news first, Ster Kinekor Entertainment confirmed that the 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition will also launch in South Africa! Let's take a look at the press release.

The PlayStation®4 Ultimate Player Edition has been confirmed for South Africa. The release date and pricing will be communicated at a later stage. Minor modifications will be made to the PlayStation®4 Ultimate Player Edition later this year in alignment with the recently announced 500GB PS4™ system.

The PlayStation®4 Ultimate Player Edition brings all the best that PlayStation® has to offer, with massive space to download and master the best games. The timing has never been better, with PS4’s game offering continuing to expand in 2015 with cutting edge games like the highly anticipated Until Dawn™, Batman: Arkham Knight™, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Destiny: The Taken King and God of War™III: Remastered all arriving soon.  

Players can take advantage of double the storage capacity to download their favourite new release titles from the PlayStation®Store (PS Store). With PS Store anyone can make sure they get their hands on the biggest games as soon as they’re released by pre-ordering; the auto-download feature ensures that pre-ordered games will automatically download to your PS4 so you can play the second they launch. With the PlayStation®4 Ultimate Player Edition, that means even more space to instantly download the best games available. Additionally the increased storage lets players take full advantage of the PlayStation®Plus Instant Game Collection™ with maximum space on the new system to download games.  

With more than 20.2 million units sold through worldwide*, PS4 continues to demonstrate the fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation® hardware history. With the launch of PlayStation®4 Ultimate Player Edition, there has never been a better time to play the best games on the most powerful system for an exceptional gaming and entertainment experience.
