Sony believes that its PS4 launch lineup is made up of the strongest day-one games in PlayStation history, but it’s not stopping there.

The company plans to unveil even more previously unannounced next-generation games on November 14, the eve of the PS4 launch in the US, according to Spike TV Host Geoff Keighley.

“Get ready for an epic night of PlayStation world premieres and announcements,” tweeted the video game journalist.

A follower asked if this included “New PS4 games?” to which Keighley succinctly responded “Definitely.” That certainly met the 140-character limit as well as gamers’ hype requirements.

Live from New York City

The mysterious new PS4 games are scheduled to be announced during a Spike TV PS4 All Access event taking place in New York City at 11 p.m. ET/4 a.m. GMT/6 p.m. AEST November 15.

The event will be shown on Spike TV and, according to Keighley, will be live streamed and viewable on a mobile device or computer. PS3 owners will also be able to tune into the action, he added.

The showtime is one hour before the first wave of PS4 midnight launches are set to take place on the US’ East Coast.

Everyone in Europe and Australia, meanwhile, has to wait a little bit longer between the Spike TV broadcast and the PS4 release date. It’s a painful two weeks later, November 29.

Speculation about one of the unconfirmed new games favors something from Sony-owned developer Naughty Dog.

The Santa Monica, Calif.-based studio has yet to announce a next-generation title, and the highly anticipated but officially unannounced Uncharted 4 would top most gamer’s lists. But that speculation may be more fans’ well-wishing than ring-of-truth.

The Last of Us: The Sights and Sounds

After actually playing The Last of Us, it’s not the beautiful graphics, the brutal violence, or the approachable crafting system that stands out to me. It’s the sound. The Last of Us isn’t Uncharted, with its happy score wafting over every moment of gameplay. It’s a slow, suspenseful crawl through a world that can kill you at any moment. As such, it’s quiet – eerily quiet. You have time to listen to the rain pitter patter on windows and each breath of the infected you’re creeping up on to shiv in the neck.

But that’s just part of the 20 minutes I played through. If you’re the visual sort, my quick fire impressions are available in a PlayStation Conversation below — as well as in theinterview with developer Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann — but if you like these here written words, let’s hit the highlights.

Xbox 720 release date, news and rumours

While gossip surrounding Microsoft’s next Xbox console has been churning around inside the rumour mill for a good few years now, there’s no doubt that we’re getting closer to learning some cold, hard facts.

We fully expect the Xbox 720 – if it is indeed to be called that – to launch in time for Christmas 2013. If it doesn’t we’ll be absolutely flabbergasted. And with the increasing frequency of new rumours, reports and leaks, an official reveal from Microsoft cannot be too far away.

So what can we expect from the Xbox 720 when it is finally revealed by Microsoft, and when will it finally hit the shelves?

Xbox 720 specs

The next Xbox is to be as popular and last as long as the Xbox 360 – without the frankly appalling hardware failures which blighted its early days – it’s going to need some reliable and powerful components.
