Countdown Timer:

I have also found a countown timer for the PS4 with instructions to display the PS4 Countdown code on your website.

Copy and paste the following code into the HTML of your webpage and you're done. Easy! Anytime the release date is updated the countdown will automatically update on your website.

You can also change the background color by changing the ?bg=FFFFFF to whichever hex value you want. For black you would set it to ?bg=000000. This needs to be changed in two places so just copy replace.
