That's 2 MUCH, expected 450$ maxx,meh...

FriedGoat1532d ago

Hmm, That conference was better than I expected. I still don't like the DRM shizz, but the lineup looks good.

loulou1532d ago

agreed great conference. 50 more than i thought it would cost but i am onboard day one... my girlfriend is going to go berserk when i buy both consoles before christmas..

and titanfall looks a fooking beast

AntoineDcoolette1532d ago

Mmmm $499 console. Your move, Sony, your move. Please don't repeat PS3 launch.

Thatguy-3101532d ago

Yea i agree. Not going to purchase one but the conference was pretty good. A lot of games were shown which was a relieve. Ryse was the IP that got my most interest from the whole conference.

stage881532d ago

Thanks MS, now Sony can swoop in a lower price and kill the bone.

DeanSanchez1532d ago

No company should follow the PS3's launch price models. Lol

Bad decision Microsoft.

mikeslemonade1532d ago

If there were enough games then I wouldn't mind paying $499. However Titanfall was the only game that looked impressive gameplay wise. Their best looking exclusive was Ryse which didn't play well. Other then that there were lots of "real time" trailers.

THE-COMMANDER1532d ago (Edited 1532d ago )

Yea better conference than the first, but that doesn't mean it's a great conference, no great games was shown that makes you buy a console for $499 , the most game that i liked is Ryse as an Xbox exclusive.

But the best game shown was MGS, Man that was awesome.

sunnygrg1532d ago

Even if the PS4 is as cheap as $399, I can't buy both consoles now. I will have to take into account the money I need to spend on games as well. I have to go with the console with free online.

abzdine1532d ago

looks like people only base their buy on the price. DRM is a deal breaker, no matter if they showed Versus XIII exclusive day one release.

Sony, your turn!
Naughty Dog, Square Enix on stage!

Blacktric1532d ago

>"great conference"


Rainstorm811532d ago

Project Spark was another game that looked Amazing....OOO the possibilites

499 is a bit higher than i wanted to pay but i planned on waiting a while to see how this DRM works out

badz1491532d ago

they redesigned the ""already good looking" 360 into the XBone design! talk about dumb decision LOL!

MAJ0R1532d ago

Too high, for that price you could build a good gaming PC.

tehpees31532d ago

This is nearly the exact same price Sony asked for PS3 when it launched. If they couldn't get away with it what makes MS think they can?

raytraceme1532d ago

Project Spark and Black Tusk game only games that caught my attention. Project spark is on Windows 8 so no loss there :D Otherwise I am glad I only need to buy the PS4 and I now got money leftover for a new gpu for my pc.

thechosenone1532d ago (Edited 1532d ago )

You have to remember that doesn't include taxes! My take on the price...hahhahahhahahhahahhahh aahahahahahahhahahahahahaaaaaa a aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa a aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Mr_Nuts1532d ago

Good conference but thats how they get you

You go "Wow this looked amazing, I'm going to get an Xbox One....I don't mind the DRM and giving away my rights if this is what I'm getting"

Then once it's out and most of the games E3 will be crap

decrypt1532d ago

Dam 499usd is too high, werent consoles supposed to be cheap. I could easily build a PC with that money with much better specs and have BC with last 25 years.

egidem1532d ago

The ball is now in Sony's court. I'd have to admit that the press conference was better than I expected it to be. For $499 however, it's too expensive for me. I'll see what happens in the future.

Only thing that remains is to see what Sony will do. They already have several advantages, one of them being that they haven't even shown the console yet!

3-4-51532d ago

Yea they showed some games I actually want to play...

* A Good amount of Open world games too, which are always welcome.

* That Spark game looked good and the other Open world game. They almost all looked good but I'm still not 100% sold on Xbox.

They did help themselves but we still have more E3 so my opinion is still open.

JokesOnYou1532d ago

Hell yeah, I'm in....micro showed me exactly what I wanted to see= CORE GAMES. F-ing day One!

3-4-51532d ago

If sony was going to to launch at $400...they could bump it up to $450 before their live conference and nobody would know the difference and they would still have a console $50 cheaper/less expensive than XB1.

Boody-Bandit1532d ago (Edited 1532d ago )

I was shocked when they announced $499 MSRP and the crowd gave an underwhelming response. Already the general census on the net are mostly saying that's too much.

I didn't see anything that really impressed me graphically. Nor did I see anything that made me say, "ah the hell with it, I'm a gamer, yeah they are sticking it to me but I just gotta have this new console."

Although TitanFall looked like it will fun. Not graphically impressive but definitely looks like there is fun to be had with some mechs.

The announcement I was most anticipating was will they FINALLY revive Killer Instinct. YES they are BUT it looks like Street Fighter IV (cell shading and could be done on current hardware) and has the same engine KI did on the N64 (not fluid 60fps frame rates but the old school engine). Very disappointing.

bangshi1532d ago

More expensive in the UK than the PS3 was at launch!


NatureOfLogic1532d ago

So we'll get the superior hardware with the PS4 at a cheaper price. MS is doomed to fail miserable if Sony under cuts.

gaffyh1532d ago

PS3 was £425 at launch, this is MORE expensive and a lot worse in many many ways. They showed some great games, as I expected, but they didn't even mention the DRM issues and had the gall to say "We Listened" when they announced Killer Instinct. The best thing at this event was TitanFall (I would bet this is a timed exclusive, if I was a betting man), but that is nowhere near enough for me to buy this console at such a high price.

MORE EXPENSIVE THAN A PS3 AT LAUNCH. Microsoft really must be smoking something.

Enemy1532d ago

Timed exclusives out the ass and overpriced console. Good going, Microsoft.

TotalHitman1532d ago

£430 = $670, what are Microsoft thinking?!We're used to getting ripped off in the UK, but this is just ridiculous when the US and Europe are paying $499/€499.

fr0sty1532d ago

Great games shown, but you can't polish a turd. I refuse to buy a $499 box that doesn't even let me own my games.

mikeslemonade1532d ago

I think it's a good price. I don't like it when it's too affordable for everybody because then it loses that new and fad appeal. Right now no one gets excited about PS3 and 360 because everyone has one already. PS3 and 360 are obsolete. It's just the nature the beast. Stop complaining about the price you poor children.

darthawesome901532d ago

I agree the lineup looks very good. I am concerned about the overabundance of FPS though...

Now lets see how the PS4 compares for better or worse.
