[Gizmodo] The PlayStation 4 Will Cost Over $400 - Page 7

post #61 of 407
Could we avoid turning this thread into another(pointless) PC vs console battle please? It's honestly a tireless argument. In the end, you get what you pay for...just to sum up the whole argument. Now, let's get back on track shall we? This is about the cost of the ps3.

What does the ps4 bring to the table that makes it so much? What will sway the consumers to go to the system? I see less and less focus on the games, which is what the playstation name was built on previously...

On top of that:

"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. "

Really? Hmmm, a touchpad/screen on a controller.... where did they ever get that idea? It couldn't possibly be from a next gen console already out could it? Same with the move, awfully familiar to a console that was out at the time too...

Add to this with the rumors hat used games are more than likely out of the picture, and potential always online model for it... what does it really bring to the table?

Again, I repeat, Sony doesn't learn.

Just a few points. The touchpad they speak of would most likely go on the back of the controller, just like the one they have on the vita. It won't include any sort of screen. The idea would therefore be taken from themselves since they were the first to use it with the Vita.

Nothing you said there is exclusive to Sony btw.

I wonder what resellers like gamestop think about this new policy of not being able to sell used games on that platform. They do a lot of business with used games.

They can also refuse to sell the consoles in their stores. It won't cripple Sony and Microsoft, but it will definitely hit them in their wallet. I am interested to see how Gamestop respond if Sony and Microsoft do block used games. Reselling games is such a huge part of Gamestop's business model. I am also curious to see how much consumer backlash would occur, and how sneaky MS and Sony are going to be about blocking used games. It's probably in their best interest to keep the focus off it for as long as possible.

i don't think sony and MS will be affected at all if gamestop won't sell their consoles, a consumer that wants an xbox or PS will simply go to another place if the first place they they went to doesn't sell those,

you won't simply buy a wii because gamestop doesn't have PS or xbox
