PS4 Pricing: Leaked Documents Indicate $450
 

 
If the rumor mill is correct, we're only one day away from learning the details of Sony's PlayStation 3 successor. We already have a number of quasi-trustworthy reports regarding the console's hardware, and several convincing controller pictures were recently leaked. But the console's purchase price is still remains a relative mystery.

Yesterday, however, Murad Ahmed, a Technology Reporter from The Times, claims to have received a bit of insider information regarding the PlayStation 4's price point. Ahmed writes: “Industry sources and leaked internal documents suggest that Sony is considering pricing the new device at about £300, more than £100 cheaper than the starting cost of its predecessor, the PlayStation 3.”

£300 translates to about $465.63 if you live in America, which is significantly less expensive than the $600 price tag that was originally attached to the PlayStation 3. However, $465.63 isn't a very photogenic number, so we'll probably see Sony knock the price down to $450.00 for advertising purposes.

Earlier this month, though, a Japanese newspaper called Asahi Shimbun placed the PS4's purchase price at 40,000 yen, which is about 430 American Dollars. At the moment, there's no way to tell which number is more accurate. So, just to be safe, you should probably plan on $465.63.

Both Sony and Microsoft are reportedly planning to release their next-gen consoles in time for the 2013 holiday season, but if you're one of those people who’s been holding off on a PS3 for the last seven years, you might be cracking open your wallet very soon.

According to Michael Pachter, an industry analyst at Wedbush Securities, the PlayStation 3 could get a major price cut as early as this week. In an email interview with GamesIndustry International, Pachter indicated that the PS3 would drop to $199 by "February 21st." Even though Pachter's analysis may seem a little rash, it would be nice to see Sony's console fly off the shelves in its final days.

cant wait


no matter the price, there's always gonna be people complaining that it's too expensive..if it were up to these people, most companies would be taking a $200 loss on each console to suit their cheap needs

If i was a betting man these will be the launch models

$300-350 for basic model (125-250gb HDD and controller)
$450-500 for premium (500gb-1TB HDD, Vita and 1 year of PS+ or game)

The reason i believe they will have a higher Vita model is that they are really trying to push the remote play, i believe this is their "answer" to the wii-u. They will have a Vita/PS4 bundle marked as "premium" the "full" experience bundle.

I don't see them dropping below $400, it's a fair price when you think about it.

I would buy the PS4/Vita Bundle. Since they brought it up at the meeting, I'm totally expecting them to do that.

So would I. I've been holding off on buying the vita and if that combo ends up being true then I will finally get one.

What do you guys expect tho? Anything under 500 isn't that bad. I would see 400 being a solid deal.

for a system that is nothing but a smaller step up the graphics ladder?

It has taken me a long time but I am finally at the realization that gaming companies have ceased attempting to be innovative and just figure that beefing up the graphics will mean it makes for a good time.

Im ready to have some new sh*t be Incorporated into console gaming. sony and microsoft raping pockets with subpar standards and systems.

I don't think I am spending 400 for a new ps4 or a xbox720, and the name alone for xbox720 is gimmicks to tweak the psychology of gamers.

atleast with ps4, it is actually the 4th playstation. with xbox, it's only the 3rd which should make it 360, xbox360 should be xbox180, but I am getting off subject.

bottom line, sony & microsoft pushing weak gaming systems for outrageous prices.
