If you buy both, you get a cable box and a PS4 for under 800 dollars. Not bad.

But you still need to keep your old cable box so your new cable box can work, so dont get rid of it just yet.

So that way you can say , Kinect ps4 and it will switch the input for you... No need for remote .. MIND BLOWN

at most but if they are both $399 would be even better.

This years E3, I think that will be the hot topic. MS goes first but will they announce their price first?

If they do, it gives sony the chance to counter with a cheaper price (like they did with sega and the saturn years ago).

If MS holds off, and sony announces theirs, then it gives MS a chance to counter. Should be interesting to see where they both end up..price wise.

Will sony include the camera with every ps4? Seeing as the controller supports it i would guess, yes. But if they make it optional then it gives them more room on the price.

We know Ms is including it in every unit and while that may make the price not as flexible, it does provide a guaranteed level of developer support because they know each unit sold will have one.

Like how every ps3 has the hdd and devs knew that and supported it unlike the 360 and the option of the hdd.

Same here. 399. Im willing to pay a little higher. But not more then 500. Im a student :(

True_Samurai1795d ago

I agree with you on that I'm a student at University of South Alabama. I would love to get X1 for the least between $400-$500 dollars

fermcr1795d ago

At this moment (if i purchase a next gen console) more interested in PS4, if it's lower then 350€. If higher, then I'll wait.

If i don't like the features (still to many unknowns) of the PS4 and X1... then PC only gamer for me.

I'm thinking it will be hard for Microsoft to sell the xbox one console with the kinect sensor with the controller for a profit (assuming it is less than the $360 release price).

I bought the PS3 day 1 for $599.99, it's still working well many years later - worth the money. BUT I would like to see it at a lower launch price to get the largest consumer base possible.

DaThreats1795d ago

Lower than PS3 at $599 yes, lower than $299 of the 360 core edition, no!

Queasy1795d ago (Edited 1795d ago )

I'm thinking GameStop is probably not considering the 360 Core Edition in their comments.

mrmarx1795d ago

probably between 400-500 dollars. more in the range of 429-479

mrmarx1795d ago

things are different today than in 2005 and 2006 you now have to compete with tablets and cellphones today so they cant price the consoles be too much more than the price of a good 10 inch tablet.. tablets aren't for my gaming needs but they do well for a lot of people and also do more than what a cellphone or a console can do they also are cheaper to buy games for than consoles.

Hands Up For Games1795d ago

They expect the Xbox One to retail at less than £279.99 in the UK - Not a fucking hope in Hell!

They expect a PS4 to retail at less than £425 in the UK - Quite possibly.

It all depends on who wants to take a hit on the profit line, if either of them do and to be honest, I can see both retailing at close to £400 at launch. UK prices.

-GametimeUK-1795d ago

I was thinking this, so I started saving early. Putting away a cheeky £10 here and £20 there has left me with £200 up to now. It is basically money that I am not I'm not really missing. It will make it seem like less of a blow to my wallet.

extermin8or1795d ago

Probably looking at about £350 to really screw the Wii U over I think and ensure it's not got a chance of making any comebacks in the near future that might be a nuisance to them...
