Great news, I wonder if they will price it better than PS3 launch I just want to be able to afford one at launch. First wave of PS3 went on eBay for crazy amount of $$$$$
Sony did say that they learnt from their mistakes from the PS3 launch so I could anticipate a much lower price than the PS3 at launch
Well they got rid of the cell, Blu-ray is MUCH cheaper now, and the parts are probably cheaper than they were 7 years ago. Then again, everything is updated, and it is a beast of a console... around $350-$400 is my guess.
Yeah, and there will be idiots sitting in line buying up entire stores stock to put them all straight on Ebay.... I hope GameStop and other major retailers have names listed and addresses in some major database so they can't store hop too. Keep it to one per person, two per household. That way these scammers can't have entire lines of people just to gobble up the inventory....If you want more than that, then wait for second shipment..... Was so annoying trying to find a system this generation only for employees to go "Yeah some guy came in and bought 20 of them so he could flip em on Ebay....."
Is it just me or the PS4 price is confirmed at 400 euros?
'Yeah some guy came in and bought 20 of them so he could flip em on Ebay.' this is an extreme case. most major retailers would not allow this. i guess if u have cash on hand u can go and buy 1 at a time. but that statement sounds more like 1 guy came and bought 20 in 1 transaction. even if its not launch, most major retailers puts a red flag when someone tries to buy that many of the same electronics on 1 transaction. retailers dont even like the chinese coming over and buying 20 coach bags in same transaction just to take it back to china and make a knock-off of it and sell it at mass production back to americans and other people for half the retail price. maybe it depends on the country ur at. but im talking USA.
Buy 2 PS4's then sell one for $$$ then buy all the launch games
Why are you able to pre-order in the U.K. what about the U.S.. I want to pre-order.... -I'm ready to order Mine now along with My -Day-One- Games.. BF4 Assassin Creed IV WatchDogs KillZone Second Son DriveClub Sony I'm ready, tell Amazon to start taking Pre-orders, I want to lock mine in... (I can't tell you right now in the U.S. it's going to be a feeding frenzy at launch, best way to avoid that is to lock in your pre-order) .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
dude why you support games with DRM?? EA ,Activision and UBISOFT supports DRM , i don't support these publishers because of DRM
Amazon UK been taking pre orders for few days now I ordered mine already :-)
@ twinspectre well we don't know for sure if it will have that on PS4 or not... if it is then I wont' buy those -so until we know for sure they are day one's.. -But E3 should answer these questions for us.. (So we shall see) .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
I'm agains the DRM movement, but I do find it useful in a way. Digitally downloaded games makes the console better meaning I can play oldschool games that I want to play, because PSN is going to reveal long time coming digital formatted video games. However I am also against it because I like the idea of backwards compatibility. That being said, it doesn't matter about it being DRM, because new consoles and games are coming. I want one at launch, but I doubt I can get it.
Good, they cannot miss out UK launch this fall. Xbox 360 has dominated the UK this gen. They cannot give Xbone any breathing space if they wanna reclaim this ex sony territory.
hate to rain on your troll parade but the PS3 is more dominate in the UK. In fact the UK has been Sony's LARGEST buyer and it always was and will be their territory Based on VGChartz, Sony sold 30.4 million in Europe and MS sold 24.1
Gamer i think he is talking about just the uk, not europe as a whole.
yes he means the UK not Europe. The UK is 360 territory. Most gaming adverts tend to be followed by an xbox logo over here. And the fact that 360 is the cheapest and thus easiest to get hold of console. So people buy one cheap to play COD and Fifa with their mates.
Duh I know he means UK. I couldn't find any chrts about only the UK so I did Europe instead which means that since the PS3 is stronger in Europe, I am assuming it is doing well in the UK. @ANIALATOR136 "And the fact that 360 is the cheapest and thus easiest to get hold of console" How?
The 360 definitely sold more than the PS3 in the UK, but sold a lot less in Europe as a whole. UK sales: 360: 9 million PS3: 6 million European sales: 360: 24 million PS3: 31 million
@gribble can we get a source? where are these numbers coming from? im sure the sales of the 360 is higher than ps3 in the UK but the general popularity seem to be shifted a bit where ps3 and the xbox is equally popular nowadays. anyone in the UK want to make a comment about the popularity of the consoles in the UK? other than fanboys?
Those Kaz gifs just get weirder and weirder. I love it!
KAZ the best! http://pic.twitter.com/Arou...
What killed me is last week when Blockbuster in the UK claimed record Xbox One pre-orders when they weren't offering any pre-orders of any other console. Kinda like going onto a car lot where they only have one model and having the salesman say "It's our best seller!" I see they're still not offering the PS4 for pre-sale in the UK which strikes me as odd. I guess Blockbuster isn't one of the "authorized retailers." It'd be interesting if these other guys game us a glimpse into what the pre-order demand was like comparatively, just out of curiosity. Probably not much chance of that happening though.
Maybe learn to read and comprehend. They said most pre-ordered in Blockbuster's 24 year history. So it was a tally of all past consoles not just this generation.
This includes Wii, Wii U, PS3, PS2, X360, the lot. So not including PS4 pre-orders isn't being inaccurate in the least.
We all know you wouldn't be pointing this out if it were the other way around. Your fanboy bits are dangling. Cover up.
Not sure why you're panties are in a bunch. I just pointed out the fact that the PS4 wasn't available for pre-order at Blockbuster. Nothing in your little rant does a damn thing to alter that fact. Nice try though. As for "the most pre-ordered console" in Blockbuster history...fantastic! How long have they been taking pre-orders? What kind of numbers are we talking here? Have they allowed pre-orders online in the past? If so, what consoles have been made available for pre-order previously? You say all those consoles have been available for pre-order through Blockbuster including the PS2? Interesting considering you can pull up a list of authorized PS3 retailers from around the time of launch and guess what....Blockbuster isn't on it. With launch consoles limited, you think Sony made a lot of consoles available for pre-order to a company that wasn't even authorized to sell it's hardware in the first place? What hardware has Blockbuster UK actually sold via pre-orders? Do you have any proof whatsoever to back up your claims? Use your head.
No you didn't JUST point out that ps4 wasn't available at Blockbusters. Your whole comment implied that in the whole history of Blockbusters, only Xbox One had ever been up for pre-order.
Here you go.
Are we done?
Hey sony psst over here remember us over here in da usa make a site 4 us too ok
check this one out http://i.minus.com/i15GGiH1...
Been and pre-ordered .
@soldierone one of my roomates in college did that with 3-4 wiis to help pay for his car. I couldnt believe people were willing to pay so much. why wouldnt they just preorder?
This was recently added and that link only exists for the UK. I've tried Netherlands, Finland and the US...it doesn't exist. I wonder what's going on, this is the main page it's found at: http://uk.playstation.com/p...
OMG u see that deep down is there as a game, like i had my doubts if was it, though was more a target demo, but if is in there is a real game #HappyGamerHere
CHerry SODA!! haha agree if you know what i mean
cant wait im from uk huge sony fan
U.k., Sony fan, android fan. We're a rarity son.
that we are! shopto 399, not to bad of a price, UK always seems to get ripped off aswell
Already pre-ordered from Game back in February!
Same! £20 well spent.
Yep im there with you, that deposit got thrown at the sales assistant quicker than a bullet lol Edit. Noticed people that said they preordered in feb from game are getting disagrees, its a fact i preordered mine in feb too, game were on the ball from the get go lol
same thing happened here in Australia, as soon as they did a ps4 reveal EB games where taking pre orders to guarantee you a ps4 at launch, i think i was first to get one in and im at $560 now.
So this is the price on the official sony website preorder link @ shopto an approved retailer for uk gaming. PS4 £400 PS4 Games £48 I sincerely hope they bundle in a game of my choice. I really want Killzone to be part of the bundle.
ShopTO removed those prices, as they are awaiting confirmation from Sony. Atm, it says TBC. I do think the games will be, min £45 though.
game is going to be 60 dollars guys come on you're geting used games and no drm
Amazon.co.uk has it for £599. I still preordered it, hoping the price lowers.
$600? These are just place holders, all sites do this until they get the official price. There's no way Sony is charging $600 for PS4 especially after they've said they want to make the hardware as affordable as possible. The sooner you pre-order the better chance you'll have of actually getting one this holiday season, so do it now! :)
$600?? if your refering to the guy who mentioned £599 above you thats probably nearer to $1000 usd
@pinch talkin' about merciless number. £399.85 = $607.05
@ Thechosenone, its phinch, also welcome to the UK.... its called tax and we get taxed 20% on most things so yes way to sony charging that much, ps3 is still about £249, thats $378, you get it easy guys!
ps3 price drop to £150 and ps4 two models one at £299 or £349 other at £399-both come wit the controller, camera, etc and a game I reckon.
Ok.. Preorder now or wait for E3 first? Decisions! It'd be nice to know there was a killer app at launch. Pretty sure I'll enjoy KZ:sf at least.
I might pick one up in 3 years after a price drop.
hmm i might pick up the xbox in 3 yrs after several price drops.
Well if Microsoft doesn't get rid of their DRM plan i will never buy an XBOX One.
I might pick xbox 3 years after it will be discontinued.
400 quid seems reasonable
Im guessing £350 standard, £400 bundle with a game and psn voucher. By guessing I mean "hoping for".
that would be sweet
Such old news we ordered ours in february from game!
pre order my PS4 from Grainger Games:)
It has begun...
48 quid for a game, let's hope it's a joke/placeholder
probably not a joke given the amount of £60 games on PS store
they usually go down after a month or 2. but you can always get them cheaper just by shopping around online.
I really cant wait, i pre-ordered from shopto.net just after the feb reveal.
USA is READY SONY!! My wallet is about to be left naked by the end of this month :-)
Waiting for confirmation of whether or not the rest of Europe will get it along with the rest of world holiday 2013. If not, im gonna pre-order on Amazon UK the minute after i know.
Retailers will open pre orders on june 10th E3. Retailers need to know the price and launch dates b4 anything. I will call gamestop on the day OF E3
