Kojima at the Japanese PlayStation 4 launch

PlayStation 4 just came out in Japan. To celebrate this, Sony organized a launch event during which a few Japanese developers appeared on stage, and to count down to midnight. Hideo Kojima was there as well.

Kojima also showed the limited edition PlayStation 4, the so called ‘FOX Edition’, as seen on this amusing GIF from NeoGAF.

This special edition console has been decorated with a laser cut Fox logo and the title of the game.
