It's finally here. Sony's PlayStation 4 arrives this week, and brings along a bountiful lineup of launch titles. Killzone: Shadow Fall, Resogun, Warframe and many more (you can already find some of the 22 titles and accessories on shelves) are arriving as we jump into next-gen gaming. On TV, JJ Abrams' new series Almost Human debuts on Fox Sunday night, adding a robot and some Blade Runner / I, Robot -style futuristic flair to the traditional buddy cop show format. Hulu and Amazon also have new series hitting streams this week with The Wrong Mans and Alpha House popping on their respective services. Finally, on Blu-ray we've got Akira (25th Anniversary Edition) -- with the original 192Khz Japanese audio -- CNN's Blackfish documentary, and Man of Steel.
