    I find it funny how some people will get a gaming console on day one but gives no care about the charity. Anything higher then $250 is a waste of money.

    But it is charity. Our purchases ensure that no Sony executive will ever have to face the horrors of downgrading from $100 bills to $50 bills when it comes to wiping their asses. Come on people! Show that you care about the well being of those assholes!!!!

    There's no way it will launch at $900 in Aus. Based on PS3 and Vita pricing, we're probably looking at $6-700. Granted, that's still too much, but at least it won't be $900-1000.

    Our government is currently taking the big 3 software providers (Apple, Microsoft, and Adobe) to task for their outrageous and inexcusable pricing down-under, so here's hoping Sony takes notice.

    The Aussie dollar has been at parity with the US for almost 2 years now, so there's really no excuse.

    It's $900 to pre-order a PS4 from EB. Yeah no matter the price it will be too much.

    Yeah we can hope lol.

    Exactly mate.

    As long as it's $600-700 I'm happy with it. That would be comparable to the PS3 launch price considering how the market has been going recently. Any more than that and Sony is asking for too much, considering what the specs are for the next console. It's not even in the relatively high-end range of hardware, unlike what the PS3 was.

    I read the article and there is no way $299 or 200 will be the price , the Vita was more expensive on launch , if its as good as it sounds then 400 or $599 would be a fair price

The easier coding for developers is also a sign that Sony is listening and wants to support third party developers.

    Thank you for this response - most people will just go overboard and slam me for what I said. But I totally agree with the whole "lose interest thing" but for me I just don't see me losing interest for another 3-4 years.

    As for graphics, there already fucking amazing - how they could be any better on 1080p HDTV's is beyond me.

    Also am I the the only one who thinks it's stupid that the PS4 won't be running on 4K resolution? Why invest the money and power into a brand new TV ecosystem but not have YOUR OWN product run on it at full power? Just seems like a waste.

    First, games currently run at a maximum resolution of 720p, so when you ask "how could they be any better on a 1080p HDTV?", the answer is exactly two times as many betters.

    4K resolution is a long way off. This current console generation has been a bit of an abboration, in that it has lasted this long. My bet is that the PS5 will be out in about 5 years, and it will fully support 4K. To clarify, the PS4 does actually support 4k output, but only for Video and Picture. Full HD is only just being adopted by many even now.

    As for commercial viability, consumer-grade 4k displays begin at $15k USD. Begin. They're going to be very pricey for the next few years, at least. Besides, in terms of games, consoles are only just making the jump from 720p to 1080p (and if you're Microsoft, you're jumping from an average of 540p). There are no 4k Blu-rays, either. Currentlly the only way to access 4k content is through Sony's store, although they are going to start releasing Blu-rays that upscale better to 4k.

    The closest available thing to 4k is a triple-monitor setup for your PC, which, to run games at maximum resolution, at 60fps, requires either a monster of a GPU (easily $1000), or a dual/triple-SLI setup ($1000+) - neither of which are viable options for console manufacturers.

    wait, wait. i have a lot of games that have a 1080p resolution (granted most of them are 720p). all the games that i have that do support 1080p are games released prior to 2011 (2010 and down) with 2 exceptions.

    can, uh, someone explain why 2+2 does not equal 4 here?

    If it includes a Vita at that price, it'll be less of a deal breaker.

    Having to laugh at people complaining about $500 for the system. PS3 in NZ was about $1200 at launch and we will probably be looking at the same price or more for PS4

    Well according to this link some people might be upset ( including me ), EB games ( Gamestop ) pre-order price is $899.00 Australian, $933.00 American and 599 in UK . These prices are not confirmed but I would bet with anybody they are not off by $333 American .
