Poll: If Sony launches the PS4 at a price of $500+, they will finish last again

As stupid as Sony is, I really do see them releasing PS4 at $500, and failing yet again.

There's enough evidence to suggest that Sony might not even finish last THIS generation, so don't assume price makes THAT much of a difference. While important, it's not everything. Prices always come down.

However if they was cheaper from the get go maybe they wouldn't be in last now. $300 - $350 would be nice to start at. $400+ is high, $500+ is like "pfft, I'll wait 3 or 4 years, $500 to play a game, what kind of bull is that".

We're not going out buying high end PC or such, and we don't expect to pay that price for a video game console. And no matter how much Sony or MS tries to pass it as a media hub, while some of us may use it as such, there is no doubt most of us are gamers.

Sure, it would be nice, but the problem is, the specs would have been awful. Either that, or they would have had to wait 3 years or so to put it out, and by then most of their fanbase would have moved to 360. Sure Sony could have made a few adjustments, but the bulk of the PS3's cost came with Blu-ray, which is clear now was absolutely necessary. With new hardware, it's going to be expensive at first if you want hardware that will last graphically.

I think if MS's console is the same price it won't matter. Otherwise it will matter, Saturn vs. PS1 matter. We all saw how that turned out.

Is this even an argument? Anything over $399 would be suicide.

Wrong. PS3 - $599. Still going strong.

I'll play 1k for it if they release 30 great jrpgs with it at the same time.

Most likely PS4 will be released last again giving Microsoft and Nintendo a head start, but until I get some of the sales profits I couldn't care less.
