PlayStation 4 : Four Things to Worry About After the Event | FTG

Robert Beach of FTG writes, despite being excited, why the PS4 announcement left him worried about the future. He writes:

"The future of PlayStation is nigh with the arrival of the PlayStation 4 and Sony’s surprisingly accommodating New York Press Conference left us giddy and filled with hope for the new system. However, Wednesday’s showing was only a primer for what’s to come at E3, departing on a high, yet troublesome note for Sony and gamer." (PS3, Sony)

I'm not too worried about PS4 not having games. As next-gen (8th gen) approaches, publishers are going to move to PS4/720/WiiU.

I am worried about the price point especially after hearing about the PS4 specs and all the new features of PSN.

Of course, the only thing the price point will determine(for me) is whether I get it now, or a year after launch.

Im thinking that if the new ps eye comes with every console we wont see a price below $500. Maybe if they release a bundle without we might see a $400 version with less hdd and without online subscription...

Which takes me to my only other concern, with sony giving so many online features, i cant see how they wouldnt charge for online this time, and what are going to be the prices for game streaming? They have to recover those $380mill somewhere

Other than that, im very happy with what was shown, im sure i will get a ps4 though maybe not at launch. And now its up to MS to see if i will own all platforms this gen as well

They kinda are already with PS+. And plus has kinda shaken up the whole online service thing.

well yeah, but i mean more of a normal subscription fee like Live. I dont know how they could support all those online services without it. I would be thrilled if they stayed free, but i just dont see it happening, which means there is even less chance of MS dropping the charge as well
