We have lift off

Japan may be the last major territory to net the PlayStation 4, but that doesn’t make the console’s release any less important. To celebrate the system’s imminent arrival in its home nation, the platform holder is putting on a launch livestream today direct from the Sony Building in Ginza, Tokyo. The show will play host to a number of SCE executives, in addition to a handful of game creators such as Hideo Kojima.

And you’ll be able to watch the broadcast in its entirety courtesy of the video box embedded below. The event’s set to start at 22:30PM JST (13:30PM GMT/08:30AM EST/05:30AM PST), and will run right through until the system’s official release at midnight. Are you planning to tune into the show?
