The PlayStation 4 launched in Europe today, but players will have to wait until current PlayStation Network demand stabilizes before they are able to access some of the service's features.
In response to the influx of new PSN users, Sony has temporarily disabled
the PS4's "What's New" and "Content Information Screen" features. SCEE blog manager Fred Dutton notes that the features are slated to be switched on in a few days, "once the intensity of launch day calms down."
Sony also revealed that two of Europe's planned launch games, flOw
and Blacklight: Retribution
, have been pushed back from their original release dates, and are now slated to premiere next week. "Both flOw
have been subject to brief delays," Dutton told PlayStation LifeStyle. "They should be with you next week."
