Just like they did when PS3 launched?
adorie  +   898d ago
I dropped over 700 bucks on PS3 launch. 1 game 2 controllers. 599.99 isn't much.
Bigkurz85  +   898d ago
It's pretty well accepted that sonys launch price (and really it's first few years) were a big fail.
thorstein  +   898d ago
It looks like $400.
MmaFan-Qc  +   898d ago

BrunoM  +   898d ago

I paid $1,000 for mine 2 days after release and I'm fine with it. Just shut up and pay!
cruxito  +   898d ago
helll yeah, i paid 600 for mine and 2 games and those were the bet 700 dllrs i spent. after 6 years and my console still running like a BEAST!!

It won't be that much though. Logically look at the reasons (the custom tech) the PS3 was priced so high, and then look at the [assumed] tech in the PS4. Still powerful, but much more standard and modern architecture.

I paid 350 pounds for a WiiU, why wouldn't I pay $600 for a next generation console?
I'll buy the first Next-Gen console for any price.

I agree with you. IM like that if I want something ill pay what ever the price is. I got a surface rt when it came out and the same as I got a 3ds psv and Wiiu to. Ill do the same with the ps4 and next Xbox if they look interesting but that said the more £ they put on the home consoles the less I see them selling to the none core market.

The biggest issue with the none core now is tablets. The none core want to pay less for there devices but if a device like a tablet is the same price as a console then they will look at this as it offers them more than gaming.

This is now the biggest issue Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft have. The core gamers are in a way easy to please. Give them the games they want and you have your console sold. The none core need a low price and also a wow factor like the Wii or Kinect.

Move was a flop as such with the none core because it looked just like a Wii but double the price.

I really do hope all 3 get the pricing right for the next gen and I think having a £250 to £350 price point for there next consoles could be the best way to get the none core interested and give the core the games they want to get them interested to.

With that logic why not go for something even more powerful, a pc?
fredolopez  +   898d ago
great video! i think it will be worth the $600 once we start seeing titles that are only accessible through the PS4.
Tzuno  +   898d ago

It will be around $400 from the source from Japan. Point being that once you see the launch titles you will forget about the price tag.
level 360  +   898d ago
I actually paid AU$2,500 during those times.. but the PS3 was bundled free with the Bravia LCD + 1 game title..

Will definitely get the one with the largest HDD and which retail outlets would offer the best bundle mix to entice me.

1st GamerFitNation Inc is incorporated, so yes I am a CEO. 2nd I'm always looking to improve the video content on our site. So if you want to show me a few pointers feel free to provide me a link to the successful website you own. Hopefully when I once again go to E3, CES, Pax, The VGA, CNN, ABC News, Comic con, Games Con, Sony Offices, Ubiisoft, EA, Microsoft, Google HQ, ETC... You'll bump into me and school me on how to make it in this game. Thank for the comment love bro I'm always trying to improve. :)

Do people really think Sony will pull this again? They've learned their lesson from the PlayStation 3 launch price, never again.
kingPoS  +   898d ago
I really like that controller design. It could use some more tweaking with the handles & shoulder buttons though.
jjank11  +   898d ago
I never bought a Sony or Xbox console at launch. I usually wait a year for those then grab them up. I always especially like Sony's slim resdesigns.

Although i'm seriously considering getting the PS4 depending on the tech and games at launch.
dee-ecks  +   898d ago
No, $300 or gtfo
RickHiggity  +   898d ago
Dropped $500 on the MGS4 bundle. Haven't regretted it.
m2stech  +   898d ago
Pretty sure it will cost 399 and 450 for basic and premium models, hardware wise its not so next gen this time.
Android  +   898d ago
I could care less if it was £500 (thats roughly $770) What i find very interesting regarding this console over pricing issue is that nobody seem to comment on mobile phone products which reach into the excess of $999 *cough-IPhone, lets not forget the life span of these devices which mainly range from 2-3 years. How about TV's, Laptop replacements? etc...consoles primarily have a life span of 5-10 years with countless hours of use and wonderful online and offline experiences. Not sure about you guys but i don't lose sleep over making an investment that is of extreme benefits to me, and i'm broke.
