PS4 to be made affordable at launch?
 

 

Sony’s PlayStation 4 will be more competitively priced out of the gate than its PS3 predecessor, insiders suggest, with the company reportedly aiming at knocking a quarter off the console’s original selling price. Leaked internal documents supposedly obtained by The Times [subscription required] indicate the PS4 will be sold at around £300 when it launches, £100 less than demanded for the PS3 at its launch back in 2006.

US pricing isn’t suggested by the newspaper, but a similarly trimmer cost is likely to follow. At its release, the PS3 was priced at $499 for the entry-level, 20GB model, which if the UK price whispers are true suggests a starting point more along the lines of $399.

That would leave the PS4 still more expensive than the Wii U, the only other next-gen console on the market today, though with what are tipped to be considerably more impressive specifications. The device – believed to be codenamed “Orbis” internally – is expected to be more powerful and more graphically capable than its Nintendo counterpart, with recent leaks suggesting Sony will include Gaikai-powered game streaming.

Arguably, the days when Sony could charge what it liked for a new PlayStation are behind it. Although the console was praised at launch, the Xbox 360 has comprehensively clung to the top sales spot for months on end, and Sony’s financial results in gaming have been left hurting as a result.

Meanwhile, more casual gaming systems, such as Kickstarter success OUYA, have opened the door to more affordable consoles, borrowing mainstream chips more commonly found in smartphones and tablets to keep prices low. Sony is expected to detail the PlayStation 4 more thoroughly at an event in New York on Wednesday.

next Xbox will be 99.99 with a 3 year subscription

The $99 subsidy wouldn't be for everyone, of course, but this would be a nice deal for those of us who keep our gold active 24/7. I wouldn't mind paying $99 up front and agreeing to a 3 year contract for Xbox Live as long as the pricing of the plan isn't TOO inflated. If they build the actual cost of the rest of the box and spread it out over the course of those 3 years then I don't have an issue, as long as Microsoft gives me an active warranty for the entire duration of the contract

That said, I will probably just buy standalone if they have that option because I enjoy getting those half-off xbox live deals. But yea, if you are tight on money and you make a point to keep your subscription active anyway then I don't see how it's a bad thing.

30 million people pay 500 bucks for iPads.....I think this can survive if it's for 400 basic and 500 for pro model.....remember people pay more for tech things in 2013 than 2006 so they have that going for themselves...besides it'll get announced on Wednesday and could launched in November of this year so n*ggas got time to save up money for it if that's it


But c'mon son...every video console I can think of has been in the 300-600 price range with majority in the 400-500 range
