remember the 20GB ps3 cost sony more money than the 60GB, they only offered it to hit the $499 pricepoint.
As I stated earlier, we won;t know for sure till it launches, but there is no feasible way they can do $399 with that hardware an not lose a significant amount of money on each console sold.
Me and a friend at work had a bet, I said the PS4 was gonna be under $800 he said it would be over and whom ever wins has to pay the difference. Rrp is looking like $550au so I just made $250. :)
This simply has to be sarcasm. I watched both conferences closely and cannot imagine anyone appreciating the MS show more unless they are a big BIG fan of ... sports cars.Quote:
Sorry dude but MS actual conference was much better. Anyone can see that. Yes, the price and no DRM are pluses but I expected more from sony in the games department. And now we have the paywall that I warned all of you was coming.
Does the no drm apply to sony games or third party as well?
That was undoubtedly the most epic ass kicking I've ever seen in a conference.
Sony played it coy with the games, but I guess you gotta save some stuff for Gamescom. But the new footage of Killzone and InFamous was more than enough to blow the rest of the competition away anyway.
Santa Monica's new game looked gorgeous as fuck...but I'm not sure I'm excited about the theme. Victorian Era future sci-fi? Umm...we'll see...
* on a sidenote, looking at the official ps4 pictures, O don't see any kind of bay for a removable HDD. Though there is a weird slot on the bottom running most of the depth of the console
With a whole bunch of kids at home, the USED GAMES won the show for me!!!
We don't know if the multiplayer being talked about is all forms or specific items/services of some sort. I think the PSN+ doesn't need to required for online MP, nothing has been talked about this!! i'm hoping they'll knock it straight out an say its free to sign in an play MP with no PSN+ needed
So... about this pay to play thing... are we to assume that it is only the PS4 that requires PSPlus for online play? So we could still play our PS3 games online for free? If that's the case, what about Diablo III which will be on both systems?
Guess this is my swan song... :sad:
Online play paywall.
