$499 is not expensive for a new system in 2013/14.

Ffs guys "ps4 is better made and has better hardware" "lol ps3.5 has no games and **** exclusives" must you polute every comparison thread with stuff like this, its embarrassing.

TC I don't necessarily think people are put off by the price, or buying Sony because its cheaper, I think this early in the gen you either put aside the money needed knowing what you wanted, or neither console are worth the money knowing in a years time there will be software fixes, more games and a price drop. For me its the latter, I could spend the money if I wanted, but neither console is worth anything at the moment because neither offer anything I want or can't get elsewhere. Obviously some people simply cannot afford $500 due to their circumstances, those people likely can't afford $400 either, at least not without crippling their finances. People just argue price because its different, not much to worry about.

It is expensive when the other choice is 100$ cheaper with better hardware.

What about <$300 for a Wii U with better exclusives, more exclusives, backwards compatible with the previous system, better motion controls, cheaper games, off-TV gameplay via the tablet, and Virtual Console games?

I mean, hardware strength doesn't matter, right?

Yes, we do. We gave the PS3 a hard time back then as well, though in its defense it was a relatively cheap Blu-Ray player when it first came out.

It's still more than the direct competitor which is a $100 cheaper and more powerful to boot.


Who made the rule it has to be the same price. It's offering more hardware. My XBone just feels better made and more expensive.


Hey bozo, we're talking about facts here not your "feelings". And by all accounts the PS4 is much better designed with its smaller size, internal PSU, cooler temperatures and a lower failure rate.


Hey clown your hardware has no software and worse fps and no features and show a link to the lower failure rate....oh wait there is none.

Ps4 is for people too ignorant to get the same games on PC with better resolution and free online.


"My" hardware? Sorry but I don't own a PS4. Regardless neither console has any must-have games at the moment; it's all about the long run and the PS4 is undoubtedly going to come out on top.


Except you know when it comes to games because its obviously going to be a train wreck when infamous which got outsold by Dance Central goes up against Titanfall....

Also if you look at inflation the 360 released at pretty much the same price with less stuff.


What you on about? 360 was $399 at most.


Key word is INFLATION. Wait till you are old enough to take high school economics kiddo.

Sorry, didn't realize you were talking about inflation and the price of the 360 due to it, just thought you meant that the one is good price because of inflation.

I buy DLC. If that makes me a "sheep" then oh well. Don't like it? Oh well, get over it.

$500 isn't much. Just like 2/3rds of a month's rent. Rent typically being the largest monthly expenditure a person has.
