“NEO is coming this year, at 399$ 399€ and 349£”
That's what I thought it would be priced at. this isn't confirmation though so it could still be higher. I'd be surprised if it did go higher though.
For the rumoured specs thats a good price and id buy it first day. I cant wait but i have to unless i buy the matrix film. I do hope i can hear about the actual console soon and im hoping its able to run games in 4k 30fps.
Don't trust Tidux, he is full of it. Remember when he tweeted that Sony would reveal PSN name changes at PSX 2015? He had everyone from Colin & Greg to all GAF quoting him - look how that turned out!
this guy is just someone who guesses based on probability. he's like michael pachter but doesn't get paid for his predictions. i already said it will be $399 too, so where's my cookie?
I've been following Tidux for a long time on twitter. He isn't always right but he has seemed to get everything I care about right. He might just have some unreliable sources sometimes causing him to be wrong. It happens.
He just repeated what has already been said.
I'd much rather see them increase the specs to 4.5-5 TFLOPS and charge $449-499...
Great price.. That's a big win.
Based on market condition and rumored specs, PS4K/Neo will cost $499. There is no ifs and buts about it. Sony has to separate the PS4 and PS4K/Neo in the market. A $50 difference isn't likely, because that is like killing off the PS4.
It's gonna be £300, that's what I believe atleast. I don't remember any second model of a playstation console being a higher price than the original, why start now?
"why start now?" Because the parts in it are better than what's in it now. Andrew House said it's gonna cost more than the PS4.
Because its not a 'slim' and has new hardware ?
It's not a PS4 slim it's a PS4 Neo. That means upgraded internals. And $399 would be the same as the launch price PS4, which all things considered, would be a very fair price, especially if it comes with this rumored 'Pro' Dualshock 4.
I think it will cost around £400 in the UK. I would be surprised if it's any lower. Although I hope it is.
That's a great price and should keep the momentum going for them until they release the PS5 in two years.
didn't sony say that it will cost more than the PS4 launch price?
If they did then I was mistaken.
Just saw this on twitter, exciting news if true. I'll certainly be getting one alongside PSVR. I don't think it'll have issues selling to new PS4 consumers, but how often current consumers upgrade should be interesting.
Yea, sounds like $399 and focusing on 1080p60fps for games and 4K for movie and video playback. I'm cool with that. Day ONE.
There won't be a big difference from the OG PS4 so people aren't going to feel left out. Day one as well. Especially when thinking about the games that were shown at e3 releasing on it.
Me too. Leave 4k resolution for PS5.
Yeah....I see 4k streaming, but to be honest for 399 the Neo may not include a 4k blu ray player, and that would be a bummer. Hope I'm wrong, and 399 includes one though, that would be fantastic. I'm certainly hoping there will be a sku of the Neo that includes a 4k blu ray, even if it's priced higher.
The base PS4 can already stream 4K movies, the Neo will be able to also read Ultra HD Blu-Rays of course.
I'm in. Still haven't upgraded and this winter will be a good time.
@Medman- I'm sure it will include a 4k bluray drive. The base Xbox One (s) is $299 and it includes one.
@kingdomcome247 Does it? I didn't know that, thanks.... I stand corrected. I look forward to it.
It's Tidux though...
With that price tag it'll be 2013 all over again. They have to nail the unveil of it. I'm positive it'll do good in the market.
That's wrong Andrew house said it will be priced more than the ps4. Now that could of meant at the ps4 launch price or the price now well someone who got a interview with him off record said it will be priced more than what the ps4 launch price was so it will be more than $399 but it is to be expected it will have a 4k player plus a 4.4tf GPU card. My guess [email protected] or $499 2TB model
Never gonna happen, Sony knows first hand that a console at $499 will not sell good, even if niche product. They will announce the Neo as a Slim version of the PS4 with more power and a 1 TB HDD, but it's price will be $399. The OGPS4 will be $299 standard version. Maybe even $249 It's funny that a lot of you think Sony is gonna sell high, but MS is gonna sell low with their specs.
This is from Tidux "the insider" who couldn't tell you his ass from his elbow. This "info" means absolutely nothing at all you're better off just asking your nan to take a guess at it.
Wait, can we trust this Tidux? How many times was he right?
He was also wrong many times as well
The only time he has ever been right is if a developer has already accidently revealed it before hand or if it's ridiculously blatantly obvious. Otherwise he is completely off the mark without exception. The guy is not an insider & never has been. If you consider him to have insider information at any point then you clearly don't know anything about him or you're just an idiot who chooses to ignore the facts. There are many insiders that clearly are just that & do get things right. Tidux is most definitely not one of them though. I used to work at a job where I just used to sit through the night monitoring cameras & network links. So spent all of it bored, basically scouring deep in the internet & it was hilarious finding things out then the following day or day after or even week after having this Tidux suddenly reveal it as insider information & people lapping it up.
Well he was spot on with Sony conference 'Games, games, games, games' But then again I predicted the same so thats no feat. He did announce PS4 system updates accurately enough a few times many weeks in advance. Edit: many times 'insiders' just relay information available that anyone can find out if they look for it. Shinobi also does it. That doesnt mean they dont have sources on their own as well
Hopefully it is. I'll be getting one along side PSVR. Disagrees about my purchases? Anyone care to elaborate?
Nice, I hope the target is 1080p60 and not some halfway resolution to 4k with 30fps.
Hey Tidux, I've got an idea for you. Why don't you crawl under a rock and... Don't care for your info, I'd rather wait for sony. You and your crew are taking all the joy out of these announcements. Piss off.
Stop reading articles including these guys then.
I don't need to. Just the headline on the main page gives all the info needed. I look at N4G and just looking down the list of articles, and read in one line everything that tidux has leaked and annoyed me. Sorry if you like to have your news come from these tools, im mot here to offend you.
Not offended personally, just your disdain seemed heavy. You insinuated death.
Predicting what most likely going to happen not makes him an insider :)
To be the ps4 neo sounds as though it might just be a more powerful ps4 that runs 4K content not games. If it enters the 4K gaming marking first it will be good but not all 40 million ps4 owners will upgrade. 4k games will be limited as well as gaming consoles have not reached 1080 at 60 frames per second yet , it may just give a better power and effect to ps VR ... Seems an okay price though for the specs that have been suggested. I imagine it will be shown at games con in August since Sony have said they are attending this year
At some point, will it phase out the current model?
That's the point of both Xbox one s and Scorpio , it's like phones you keep the old model around for a few years then they stop selling it The costumer can pick when he wants to upgrade , ps4 and ps4neo will both be sold , in I reckon 3 years it will go ps4 neo and a newer console Xbox one , one s and Scorpio In 3 years it will go Xbox one s and Scorpio With all games runninging on all machines.
Guys, a birdie told me the Scorpio will be priced at $599, can I ve an insider too?
$399 is a perfect price point imo. The Scorpio will no way near be around this price point (than again it is a 'premium console')
I know a guy who has an uncle who has a distant cousin who is friends with someone that works for Sony, and I'm told the Neo will be priced at £400/$450. It'll be out in November too.
Tidux is right about 20% of the time...if this came from Shinobi I might believe it.
Definetely getting a Neo at launch for my 55inch 4k TV. Now I can bring my PS4 in my bedroom with the 1080p TV while having the Neo stationed with the 4k.
I hope not... 399 = jaguar cpu
Sorry, but my PS4 is good enough as it is. I don't need to spend another $400 for games to look prettier. Developers have proven they can do that with the current machine.
And now they can prove to me that with better hardware I can get even better visuals
Let me get this straight... We buy the PS4, then a few years down the cycle, they want to sell us their "upgraded" console, then they also tell us that VR is the next step in gaming evolution, which will most likely not work properly with the older PS4 model. Also, we need to pay $60 a year if we want to play the online portion of those $60 games we already paid for, which a lot of times happen to be online-only? Listen, people. Go and spend your money however you want, but if this is the kind of business model we can expect from console oriented gaming companies in the future, I don't want to be a part of it. At this point, I'm actually concerned that the future of console gaming might just be a series of cash grabbing attempts from our favorite companies. If I wanted to support pointless hardware upgrades and gimmicks, and "premium" online services, I'd be an Apple fanboy.
@Pygmelionhunter You have been mislead by something or just don't know any thing about the PS4, I would just listen to the statements made by Sony, not a friend. edit and reply, the ones about this only being a one time thing, . That "40 million PS4's are already PSVR capable".also just so you know PS Plus is 50$ but If you are that impaired that you can't remember what Sony said at its E3 event and what it stated following still at E3 i'm sorry but you shouldn't be afraid of something if you don't even have the intent of following the actual info given out.
"I would just listen to the statements made by Sony" Example?
Doubt it. Only $50 more compared to the current price? I don't think so.
The slim at 299 will be a game changer. The people who have a ps4 have no real reason to upgrade. Unless you just don't like Microsoft products...most people won't care though, 100 bucks is 100 bucks. The neo better bring something other than UHD bluray to win the people looking at slim or already own a ps4.
Us lot in the UK won't be paying that £349 price if we leave the EU lol price will skyrocket haha
Worth it dude. Don't let pricing on goods dictate your view on sovereignty. Please don't let Cameron's threatening of pensions and such scare you.
I'm from cornwall that part of the UK that is ignored by the rest of the country and is partially kept afloat by the EU by them funding businesses etc. Im all for the UK regaining it's sovereignty, but it needs to be done in such a way that is beneficial and not by riling up all the racists because of immigration. I think every country if it had the chance would like to be back at it's greatest but times have changed and so have the people so if your going to make a argument for leaving atleast tell the truth and not lies. It's not the 70's anymore where the everyday people couldn't do the research into it, we have the internet now and I guarantee within 5 mins most people will find that 9 out of 10 things the leave campaign says are lies. Anyway my previous comment was intended as abit of fun just for laughs like. Rant over now SONY RELEASE THE NEO FOR ME PLEASE I NEED IT NOW
Tidux is the new Thuway.
Tidux is never right. Can hardly call him an insider
People want native 4K for the NEO but do they even have a 4K tv lmao
If Shinobi said it I may believe it a bit more.
I'm going to leave this comment here for posterity: the actual revealed price is: _____
Either 400 or 450 no higher than that
Sony should price it at $250-300. Sony wants to keep gamers from jumping PC but right now PS4 specs are consider low-end pc specs in 2016 and this upgrade isn't as big as the X1Scorpio. The Scorpio is still considered low end to pc gamers. I don't see console matching PC anytime soon. Not even next gen.
