Hundreds of PlayStation fans lined up on Thursday outside New York's Standard High Line hotel for Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) launch. The next-generation console was launched at midnight, according to a report published by CNET.

Joey Chiu from Brooklyn was the first buyer of PS4 in North America. He said he had stood in the chilly weather for 20 hours before scoring his new console. Some of the fans were most likely disappointed because Sony only offered 444 consoles that night, CNET said.

Fans were also excited about the news that the PS4 would have Naughty Dog's cartography game Uncharted. Sony released a teaser video showing a map of America and Madagascar, said the report.

After PlayStation 3 debuted in 2006, fans have been waiting for a follow-up console in the form of PS4. Priced at USD400, the PS4 has 8GB of DDR5 RAM, graphics powered by a 1.84 AMD Radeon, and an x86-64 "Jaguar" eight-core chip. The PS4 is USD100 less than its rival Xbox One, the report said.
