Sony has finally confirmed that it will launch the 1TB version of its PlayStation 4 Ultimate Player Edition in selected European and PAL territories. The 1TB PS4 will hit the stores starting 15 July this year.
According to the PlayStation blog post the new 1TB PS4 edition will be available in PAL friendly territories. PAL is basically a video standard used across most of the countries globally, but North and South America use a standard known as NTSC.
However, Sony has not revealed when, the 1TB PlayStation 4 will be released in the U.S. or non-PAL regions.
"Offering twice the storage of the existing PS4, you'll be able to download more of the games you love to your PS4, extend your play with more great add-on content and save and share even more of your best gaming highlights," says the blog post.
The storage upgrade came just after Microsoft announced a new 1TB Xbox One at E3 2015 event. The 1TB version of Xbox One is priced at $399, while the current 500GB PS4 is available for $399 in U.S.
Sony has not revealed the pricing of the 1TB version of PlayStation 4 in the blog post, but mentioned to check pricing information with your local retailer. Certainly the price will be higher than the current PS4 model.
