Consumers who have questions about Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4 should find most of them answered in a hefty FAQ posted by the company.

Dubbed "PS4: The Ultimate FAQ - North America," the page breaks down its information into categories, such as System Details, Game Lineup, Used Games, Peripherals & Accessories, and Digital Entertainment. Each category offers answers to numerous questions in an attempt by Sony to clear up any lingering mysteries.

The FAQ discusses which games will be available for the PS4, how the console will support used games, how you can tap into online multiplayer gaming, and how you can download games from Sony's PS Store. It's difficult to think of a question that Sony hasn't answered, so the FAQ is definitely worth a read for any prospective PS4 buyers.

Priced at $399, the PlayStation 4 is due to land in North America on November 15 and in Europe on November 29.
