It is no white one but that is a good price. Amazon being aggressive. To be honest I don't get the appeal of the white console. It looks tacky (like most white electronic products)

Summons753558d ago

It's a nice treat for the eyes and break from everything being black, black, black, black. So much black, reminds me when everyone went through the emo/goth fad, wore nothing but black and hung out at the mall doing literally nothing or sat home playing Halo 2...

LAWSON723558d ago

Goths played Halo 2, lol

Volkama3558d ago

Agree on the white. It is no coincidence that both platform holders chose "doesn't look stupid on the TV cabinet" black for their respective consoles. Still, I'm sure white fits some homes so the option is good.

As for the Amazon bundle, that's a tempting deal. If my friends weren't buying the XBox version I probably would have picked this pack up.

Stapleface3558d ago

Wish they would drop the price here in the US. I'd grab that instead of the Glacier White for my sons birth day present. I doubt he would care about the color. lol

This is as cheap as they come in the UK. I'm seriously considering picking one up. A PS4 purchase is inevitable either way.

Jag-T10003558d ago

They need to lower it down to $399. The madden Xbox one combo is $399 and the sunset overdrive combo is $399 also.

Jag-T10003558d ago

You probably already pre-ordered it, that's why you disagreed.

SoapShoes3558d ago

But this is still a better value than those Xbox bundles.

Poor Microsoft can't catch a break....at least they got the power of the cloud...right....right?!?

If this is true, it will crush everything for the price.

VenomUK1d 11h ago (Edited 1d 11h ago )

Needs to be a PS5 portable.

Cacabunga1d 10h ago

PS4 native with PS5 remote play capabilities. Would be sweet.

And let PS Portal support cloud streaming for all PS+ games.

anast1d 9h ago

Going off all the pricing behavior of Sony to this point. I'm willing to bet it will be cheaper than the Steam Deck. And when the price is revealed and I am right, send me a message.

Cacabunga1d 9h ago

Could be an attempt to counter switch 2 which will have PS4 power.
Imagine all the PS4 third party re releases switch 2 is going to get.. “PS4 portable” could get the exact same games once again and publishers can resell software ..

If this portable has provides PS5 remote play on top then it will have a nice argument and exclusive feature.

DarXyde15h ago(Edited 15h ago)

Cacabunga,

Possibly, though I think any attempt to win against Nintendo in the handheld space is hopeless.

I loved the PSP and I still enjoy my Vita, but there's something about a full scale Mario and Zelda in your hands that makes it clear Sony should share the space, but never dream of taking it.

It's a very safe bet from Sony to have it run PS4 games too because then neither you nor developers are on the hook to make dedicated games for it.

Time will tell. I hope it's real. I'm willing to bet that it is—this is an inevitable strategy for Nintendo and the Surface team is allegedly handling Microsoft's next hardware stint. Sony wouldn't be the only one without portable hardware.

$199 for a dedicated handheld when they are trying to sell that piece of shit streaming screen for the same price. Hilarious.

It would be a niche product like Portal. Not bad, but not mainstream. It's legacy PS4 right?

Kneetos1d 10h ago

The switch 2 and next steam deck will be out by then and will likely be way more popular

anast1d 9h ago

The switch 2 will be a handheld Series S for kids and the next steam deck will be ridiculously over priced for a bunch of aging CRPGS and F2P mobile style games.

Kneetos1d 1h ago (Edited 1d 1h ago )

@Anast the switch 2 will Fortnite dance on the new Sony handhelds grave
Playstation can't compete with Nintendo there

With playstation porting all it's games to pc and by extension steam deck it pretty much makes the new pshandheld system irrelevant

Especially since all I ever hear from the Sony crowd is "I NEED graphics or I can't enjoy the game" a handheld PS4 is going the same way as Sony's handheld ps3

Hypertension1401d ago (Edited 1d ago )

If the switch 2 isn't backwards compatible, it will fail.

If this is true, then it will already have a large of games to play from the start, add ps1,ps2,psp,vita games to the mix, and it can be massively popular.

anast13h ago(Edited 13h ago)

The switch is a Mario machine and for kids, they have their own space. Tell me where I am wrong here.

The problem is that Sony isn't porting all of the games to the Steam Deck specifically. The Steam Deck can't play every game. It even has a verified category with games that run the best and a "playable" category that can barely run games. So, the best option to play would obviously be a Sony product.

The last point is inane. I can't respond to comments that use caps. the point should be able to stand on it's own

NotoriousWhiz12h ago

It doesn't matter hiw popular the Playstation handheld is if it shares the same library as the PS5. It just brings more people into the ecosystem and provides them with more ways to play their games.

Kneetos12h ago

@anast Nintendo is competing with Sony and no amount of backpedaling will change that
They were competing during the GameCube era and the Wii u era, coincidentally the 2 gens they lost to Sony, but we're suddenly not competing during the ds, Wii and 3ds era because they beat playstation, but of course we can't have that can we so "Nintendo isn't competition Sony auto wins"

The switch is more then a mario and even a first party machine these days as there are plenty of games, specifically Japanese and indi games that are doing better on switch then their ps counterpart
It's irrelevant that Sony isn't specifically porting to steam deck, the games will end up on there and people will wait for a pc port just like how playstation fans wait for a playstation port of games, you aren't unique

Playstation fans constantly brag on graphics, so a handheld that only plays PS4 games isn't going to entice a lot of them, like the vita before it, and Sony has a history of just dropping unsuccessful projects, the vita psvr and it looks like the portal isn't doing too hot either
