You could have easily just posted the price too. I'm not clicking that. No offence. But i've clicked things before when the member has one post, and it can be a bad thing.

Too expensive, for what essentially is just a redesgned controller, that plays mainly PS3 games. (most titles will initially be cross-generational)

Sony has officially confirmed that their upcoming Next Gen console the Playstation 4 which has already started manufacturing and will cost the following (depending on your currency)

In Dollars the Playstation 4 will start at $428 Dollars
In Euros the console will start at 399€ Euros
In Japan the Playstation 4 will cost 40.000 Yen
This is the price of the most “Standard” edition, we expect the highest GB in storage and extra features edition of the Playstation 4 to cost over 600$
Don't have a clue where the information has come from this site (never heard of it before) is the only one I can find that's stated Sony's confirmed the price. Probably just some site desperate for hits, as I'm very sure more bigger sites like IGN,kotaku etc would of had it on there front page.

Correction it does not play PS3 games It plays PS4 games. The playstation 4 is sony's fourth generation console. A far more powerful,easy to develop for platform.

I think you missed the actual pricing from your post

US = $429
Europe = 399€ or £336 (At current conversion rates).

^If there's any truth in this I won't be rushing out to get one. I'd define that as pretty frigging expensive.

£350 - £360 IMHO

There is no way Sony want a repeat of the high price, rip off claims that followed the PS3 launch and with 360 having large market share in the UK I think it would be silly to overcharge us as a region (They could probably get away with it easier in Europe where PS3 is a bigger platform than the 360)

Even if it was £350 I think it's too expensive for a supposed lower end model, depending on how drastic the changes are to go from lower end to highest end model. I say £280-299 for lower end and high end model being £350-£379. Any higher and I think they will struggle to sell.

Considering that this information isn't on any of the big gaming websites i'd take it with a hefty pinch of salt. If Sony had really just announced their pricing you can bet it would be all over sites like IGN, Eurogamer, and Kotaku within minutes, so i'm calling BS on this for the time being (not to mention that the OP only has one post to their name).

Even if it wasn't the sites would report it, Kotaku does love it's bait headlines.

I agree with this entirely, and I totally call bu****it on the original post.

I paid £300 for a WiiU so £360 for a PS4 ain't bad ... I was expecting £400 tbh.

Here is the PR http://www.noshitshurlock.com/sony-c...ation-4-price/
That article is over 2 months old.

It was nonsense then, it's nonsense now.

Sony have confirmed nothing.

Thread = fail.

Love it.

The thread is misleading and incorrect. Should be closed in my opinion.

Thread is bollocks, started by someone making a first post going to a bollocks blog.

Advertising for a site me thinks?

Precisely, he's done the same sort of thing on the 360 pricing article comments linking to the same site.

I reported him there and will follow suit here too.

Errrm, no ... it's a completely new PlayStation console that won't have any backwards compatibility with the PS3, unless
they include a "system on a chip" PS3 hardware emulator ... something along those lines is rumoured for the next Xbox.
