Everybody is expecting Sony to announce the PS4 on February 20th that it's a forgone conclusion at this point. Now rumors are coming out about the price of the next generation system. Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun is reporting that the PS4 will retail for over $400. Expensive? Specifically, the Asahi Shimbun reported a 40,000 yen price which translates to $428 in ol' greenbacks....

The Japanese paper also references a controller that has the same shape as the Dual Shock 3 with the addition of some sort of touchpad. We'll find out what's what on February 20th.

Too bad because I'm not getting one.

EDIT: I'd rather spend $400 on a good graphics card like a GTX670/HD7970 than a console that doesn't let you play used games.

First generation of the newest consoles always are the most expensive. Hopefully the PS4 doesn't block used games otherwise I don't think I'll buy it.

I wonder what it'll be here in aus... if I remember correctly the ps3 was near the $1000 mark for the 60gb when it first came out. $400-500AUD would be a guaranteed purchase form me.

I would say 499.99 for any entry level PS4.

If the used game blocking thingy is true, I don't think I'll be picking one up. I hardly use mine as it is. Might as well put money towards a wifi TV for netflix and my p90x

inflames, I love your avatar, it makes me laugh biggrin.gif
