A price drop won't happen until sales of the console begin to taper off and I don't see that happening until next year, summer 2016 at the earliest.

The PS4 chief - Fergal Gara, PlayStation UK's MD

Have Sony learned any lessons for the future?
"First of all, on the positive, we've learned how important it is to get your positioning right in the first place. Adopting a very gamer-focused perspective from the outset served us extremely well. I think what we also learned is that it's really important to keep innovating to keep interest in the sector. We have innovation coming through this year and plenty more on the agenda for years to come.

This year sees the introduction of Share Play, the introduction of PlayStation TV and as we look forward there's plenty more to come - PlayStation Now and Project Morpheus looming in the background as a potential new project to take to market. It's a great start but we can't rest easy, we must keep exciting and delighting gamers - and of course broadening the audience as we go."

What next for PS4...
"I'd like it to continue with the innovation stream I just talked about, but also what we want to see in the next year or two is a bigger mass market play, shall we say. So in order to broaden and perhaps fill the void that's being left latent by, say, the Wii - which is a shadow of its former self. We need to have the kind of product that will engage that more casual consumer. I think that's a big opportunity for us, and that's not yet clear on the horizon, but something we should and I'm sure will be focused on as we look forward into year two, three and four."

So these is your answers.

PS4's goal is to multiply the PlayStation Nation.

PS4 is going to take responsibility on every sector of the console gaming ecosystem-the core hobby gamers and the general gaming public.

Right now its the only platform which has the chops to take on such a great responsibility with its great power.

There is no need. in the latest sales week it sold 300K, 3 times the xbox one. So until those numbers start decreasing, there is no reason for a price drop
