The controller profile linking sounds cool. Since I'm into e-sports I'd kill for that streaming feature, too.

I'm expecting the PS4 to pack a punch so paying $500+ isn't out of the question. I have the money for it, I have the passion for it, I didn't have a problem with the launch ps3 pricing. I'm looking to "invest" in an entertainment machine that will last me for the next 8 years so paying $600 is no problem at all.

What is a problem is that there are "gamers" in here that expect the PS4 to be high n mighty with a launch price of $300-$400. Sony (and M$ I suppose) are looking to be future proof and to cater to new standards of technology. So if you're looking to have Sony (dont know about M$) to provide 4k video output and 4k movie experience along with other high quality specs/features, expect to shed out some money... Especially at launch.

I'm prepared for my gaming fix ladies n gentlemen.

After ps4 is release all the 360 fangirls realize 720 will not be released til 2014 with no games but Gears,Halo,forza and maybe a few new Ip's they will re-join sony and all be normal again.

meantime "BACK TO THE FUTURE" playing with my PS12 hologram image gaming. im dueling on a yu-gi-oh game vs. SETO KAIBA

Likely NFC from console to controller to port your profile when say you take your controller to a friends house.

I'm not sure if you'll see it retail above $399.

Part of the reason that the PS3 struggled so much at launch was people found it to be to pricey at $499.I think you're right about there being two SKUs at launch, but I think they'll launch at $330 and $399 respectively.

Still, very excited for this announcement!

PrimeLantern1241d ago

I can see them playing it safe with a semi low price of $399. Then they'll charge a premium for the second SKU or a hundred more.

LOGICWINS1241d ago

Anything over $449 would be suicidal for Sony. I'm sure they understand that though. If the most expensive SKU with backwards compatibility at launch is $399, then that'd be incredible.

Wiiu is 350 basic and 400 with pro controller and a game. I can't see ps4 matching it in price, you know, being a next gen console and all.

450 base model is acceptable.

FarCryLover1821241d ago

I'm thinking $449.99 as well.

shahrukh3391241d ago

PS4 will be more pricey then the xbox720 because it will be more powerful just like ps3... I never bought ps3 because man it was pricey as hell. So if the strategy remains the same then people will pick up xbox720 more then ps4..

However if PS4 price is not so much different then XBOX720 is gonna get knocked out instantly because Play Station is for hard core gamers which are many as compared to Kincetians and other kids plus Play station has the best exclusives in the console market... I just cant wait to play Unchartered and the new ND last of us :D...

Not a fan boy... just a guy with logic (I GUESS)

FlyingFoxy1241d ago

How much ignorance in this post?, i respect MS and Sony but this time i'm more interested in PS4 just because i like Uncharted and other possible gaps it can fill with games similar to Banjo Kazooie or Conker, since Rare only make Kinect stuff now there is no chance of that on 720.

Besides if you were really a hardcore gamer you would own a gaming PC as well. That is the best.

If it features 8 Gb of GDDR5 RAM: HELLO PROCEDURALLY GENERATED WORLDS :D.

GiantFriendlyCrab1241d ago

8gb gddr5 do not exist yet for gaming

The_Infected1241d ago (Edited 1241d ago )

The developers said Sony is shooting for 8Gb DDR5 over the current 4Gb.

Tsar4ever011241d ago

I don't see it being another 4GB of GDDR5, but most likely 4GB DRR3 RAM instead. And being that the orbis's discreet GPU & APU's GPU will both based on the updated GPU UNIFIED architectural tech, I'm sure both GPU's will use both RAM chip-sets when ever needed. And also sony should change the OS memory from 512MB to 1.5GB, We'll never know how much NEW types of multimedia apps will be implemented into the console between 2013 & 2020.

I'm just EVER happy Sony's finally getting it together and pushing for more memory (*Like devs always wanted) to at least match nexbox. And they also need to change the memory bus speed from 256-bit to 384 for broader memory bandwidth which would help a great deal with graphic visuals.

just as Howard responded I'm impressed that any body can get paid $5453 in a few weeks on the computer. did you look at this site link
