Would You Spend $400 on a Playstation 4?

Forbes - Another rumor about the Playstation 4 is making the rounds on the internet today, except this one has nothing to do with hardware

The story is too old to be commented.

Yes, I would spend up to $499.99 for a ps4.

nrvalleytime1655d ago

That's too much. $499.98 at most.

blitz06231655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

Yup, willing to spend $400 tops. $450+ I would, depending on how awesome the console is - launch games, new features, etc. Just got a new PS3, so I wanna tell myself don't get a PS4 too early and spend another crapload.

Peppino71655d ago

In a second! I bought the original 60gb. 600 plus tax would prob be my max.

nrvalleytime1655d ago

^ I was kidding, by the way. I never actually purchased a PS3, but I'm far more excited for the PS4 than other potential new console from Microsoft. Not hating on the 360 or 720, but I'm ready for a change.

guitarded771655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

I spent more than that on a PS3, so yeah... I'd spend $400 on a PS4.

Redrum0591655d ago

My first born...

Naw jk LOL
I'd pay 600 no problem

Anon19741655d ago

I spent $600 on my PS3 ($500 on my 360) but I'm not in a hurry to replace either. That said, a $400 PS4 price tag would probably entice me to pick one up earlier than I was planning. Any more than that and I can wait. It's not like I have a shortage of games to play.

Saigon1655d ago

400$ is the perfect price point. I will be willing to go higher, but that $400 looks sooooo much better.

Sarcasm1655d ago

I'd spend $499.97 at most. Anything pass that is a no no.

TheGamerDood1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

I thnk $399 is the sweet spot.

Also if they want to get the jump on MS then they better price it aggressively.

I have the cash to buy it right now plus a couple of game so I'm f**king ready to do this.

Ju1655d ago

Well, $399 would be awesome, $499 probably, too. But I'm in no rush...depends on my urge I might get weak and get it early; but realistically I won't be getting it before spring 14...

deno1655d ago

No that's still to much. $499.97 for me.

DERKADER1655d ago

What price would you pay for a device you know nothing about? I am going to use common sense and wait till we get actual facts before blindly pledging elegance to any device at any price.

SilentNegotiator1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

I paid $400 for my Ps3, so yeah, probably.

badz1491655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

so yeah...why not

thorstein1655d ago

$400 no problem. $450 with an extra controller and/ or launch title.

sobekflakmonkey1655d ago (Edited 1655d ago )

I'd pay $499 easily, not a problem, considering I bought a PS3 when it first came out for like $600 with like 3 games as well and an extra controller, so it was probably like over $700, I go big, that's how I do. lol

ChrisW1655d ago

I'm pretty certain that it'll be a super stripped basic version.

Yi-Long1655d ago

... will it have backwards compatibility!? Will it require game-activation? Will it be region-locked? Will it demand 'always online', what are they going to do with the new controllers and will the be as ridiculously expensive as those WiiU tablets (hell, even normal dual-shock 3's cost 60 euro here in Holland(!) )

... and most importantly, it will depend on the games.

400 dollars/euros sounds like a great price though, so I'll certainly be interested, but like I said, it will depend on a number of things for me. Not just that attractive price.

I do have to say that the last 2-3 years Sony has made some very positive steps to winning me over, with PSN+ probably being their biggest achievement this gen. I'm am pretty confident that Sony is focussed on GAMES, which is what I'm looking for first and foremost with a GAMES console.

andibandit1655d ago

In order to persuade my wife, it would have to have some serious COOP games at that price and none of that Horde/Zombies/Tacked on seperate coop campaign, crap.

morganfell1655d ago

The real question is why wouldn't I spend $400 for a PS4.

Looking at what I spent for a launch 60GB PS3 and all of the enjoyment and enthralling experiences it has brought why would I not want to take that to the next level and beyond for a mere $400.

007Bond1654d ago

HAHAHA We got mommy buying this for you? Trust me if any of you worked instead of playing video games all day you would understand how tough it is to earn money on your own.

500 for a video game console HA!

HappyGaming1654d ago (Edited 1654d ago )

I seriously doubt it would be $400.
I would love it if it was but my gut is telling be $500 minimum. Remember this will be a console that will have 6-7 years of price drops before the PS5 comes out.

Edit: They have to squeeze the markets pockets like a toothpaste. At first ask for a lot of money slowly bring the price down and get people to push their limits and pay as much as possible for the console.

I spent 600$ on the ps3 so yes.

DrRichtofen1655d ago

Me too! And that was in 2007 a year after it first came out

dalibor1655d ago

Why yes I fall into this category as well. That makes us all cousins in the gaming world. People who have bought the PS3 when it was $600. Would I do it again? Most likely. Probably. Oh what the heck you bet I would. It was all worth it in the end even though so many people ahem journalists wanted the PS3 to suffocate and die never to rise out of the grave ever again.

BattleTorn1655d ago

I spent $400 on WII U!!!


MmaFan-Qc1655d ago

pretty much, im buying it day one whatever what the price will be, even my pc graphic card is probably more costly than the ps4 so its not really a big deal for me.

T21655d ago

Exactly plus I liked the added benefit of excluding trash whenever possible. The first time I played on xbl I was stunned at the sheer number of idiots yelling, singing, wannabe gangsters .... I almost never use a headset on xbl

deno1655d ago

Same here. It was worth every penny.

I would especially if it lasts almost 10 years like this gen.
