I expected $400 or $500, so it doesn't surprise me. Sony will be making some losses on the console for a while, that's pretty much a given. And no, I don't consider the Wii U overpriced, despite being that much weaker. In the end it's all about the games, and Nintendo is the only one I can trust about being able to deliver for certain in that aspect.

No why? I haven't bought a Wii U (yet). I planned from the start to wait and see how the PS4 turns out. And the Wii U has some stuff they need to sort out (more Pro controller support, rumble pro controller, accomplishment stored on the account, easier to transfer your downloads, cheaper price, interesting games)

Article says over 400,000 yen, so it could be as low as 40,001 yen, or as high as.....well, you get the idea. I'm not expecting as low as $400 to consumers to be honest, because Sony needs to try and make money to get themselves back in business.

$399.99 is a good price and in the range I am hoping the next gen consoles will be in. I agree it will likely be much more powerful than the Wii U it would be a good deal. Wii U at $275 or $250 would entice me to buy one if packaged with a good game or Nintendo land I suppose..

I don't see why anybody would say they feel ripped off by something's price. You don't have to buy it.

As for my answer, no, I wouldn't. I'd seriously question their logic at such a suicidal move. They already made the Vita "not profitable for three years" why would they also do that with a console?


I agree with the first part: no one's forcing anyone to buy anything.

I disagree that it will be a suicidal move, however. Based on the rumored specs Sony can manufacture each PS4 for around $400 and either sell at a small loss or, possibly even a profit out if the gate. Even if they take a loss it will be no where near what they lost on each PS3.

It will be 799 US dollars, feature a tablet controller which Jack Tretton will glorify as a revolution while dismiss Nintendo's as a baby's toy that no self-respecting adult would be seen playing.

Sony's been stuck in the 90s method of "We're the cool adults. You a baby? Play our stuff! Blast Processing! I mean Cell Processing!" style of advertising for years. PS1 and PSP are two of my favourite systems but I'm not gonna lie thy are too arrogant, mismanaged and clueless to reclaim the masses thy once had.

Ripped off by Sony, yes, because once again they'd be thinking they can charge whatever they want because it has their name on it. They really need to learn that they aren't Apple and can't get away with that s***.

PS3 is most likely going to outsell the Wii by the end of this generation. Sony made a long term investment, something Nintendo fanboys don't seem to understand for whatever reason.


Pathetic, really.
