Everyone seems to be happy about the PlayStation 4, but what if the price turns out to be steeper than expected? Will all the hype start to wane...?
No. The PS3 outsold it's competitor at twice the price at $600.
DSL 163,785 Wii 52,544 PSP 34,433 PS2 10,414 PS3 8,839 http://forums.sega.com/show... Media create 2007.....Sales of Sony are below of Nintendo. Anyway, I don't think Sony will release PS4 at a lower price in Japan.
So, that's worldwide sales for all systems for the year? No? Then what the hell are you on about? That's not even monthly sales, but weekly. What type of information can be gleaned from that? What type of point were you trying to make? Whatever it was, you failed, miserably.
i´m willing to pay up to 500 euro, hope sony listen to us
No, because Sony has learn from its mistakes with the PS3 launch. The PS4 will most likely launch starting at $399.
Think about what you are saying.What exactly is too expensive? There is no way it could be the original price of the PS3 with new cheaper components and third parties wouldn't be on board if it turned out that Sony was selling it for a high price.So I doubt it will be too expensive as you put it. However I know what ever price they say people will claim it should be lower. If they said $199.00 people will ask 'Why not $99.00?'
I don't know, you tell me.
the fact AMD got the deal with PS4 and not Nvidia already make the PS4 not expensive as PS3
Yosp says Sony are 'flexible' on pricing.
Well since all signs point to a cheaper console at launch compared to the ps3, this article is kind of irrelevant.
One person's "too expensive" is another's "worth every penny". If Sony pulls another $599 price tag out of their... ummm... pocket, and tells people to get another job to afford a PS4, sure they will kill some positive vibes, but I seriously doubt that will happen again.
"AMD "Jaguar" Micro-architecture Takes the Fight to Atom with AVX, SSE4, Quad-Cor" AMD hedged its low-power CPU bets on the "Bobcat" micro-architecture for the past two years now. Intel's Atom line of low-power chips caught up in power-efficiency, CPU performance, to an extant iGPU performance, and recent models even feature out-of-order execution. AMD unveiled its next-generation "Jaguar" low-power CPU micro-architecture for APUs in the 5W - 25W TDP range, targeting everything from tablets to entry-level notebooks, and nettops. http://www.techpowerup.com/... So think about this: This is a Tweaked MOBILE! "entry-level" Chipset going to be in Tablets and netbooks without the Screen! and this PS4 is using a Modded 8 core ver' of a Tablet, Netbook SOC shipset. Even with 8GB or SYSTEM RAM this thing will be far cheaper to produce than many I think are thinking! The very fact that the PS4 is using a Mobile chipset, and this very same chipset that's going into the PS4 will also be a stripped out ver going into mainstream other devices and this is an AMD "entry-level" SOC with tweaks How expensive do people think this is going to be? we may in fact be looking @ a $349.00 launch price for the PS4!
a user forgets GPU, network adapters, controller (1 included with every console of course), and other multimedia parts including BR drive. A man would expect $400 for low memory and $500 for higher memory and 3 months of plus and/or a game (most likely KZ).
$530 is about what I would expect to pay. Note that half of the "good" features will be dropped within thrre months to allow a price of $350. Forgot to mention pay to play for Sony, not just MS.
