    Sony head "hopes" PS4 won't cost $599

    Despite showing a variety of games running on the newly announced PlayStation 4, Sony PlayStation's US head Jack Tretton says the console's "still in development in terms of final specs and design." He told All Things D as much in an interview this morning; the PlayStation 4's specs were detailed in a press release by Sony last evening, which detail the internals as an 8-core 64-bit x86 "Jaguar" CPU built by AMD, a Radeon GPU comprised of 18 "compute units" which push out 1.84 TFLOPS, and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.

    Tretton also said he "hopes" that the PlayStation 4 won't cost $599 at launch (the PlayStation 3 launched in two models, at $499 and $599). "When I think about the console, you open it up, you look at it, you certainly look at it when you insert a disc, but for most people, it's behind a cabinet or on a shelf somewhere and you spend all your time looking at the screen," Tretton said.


    Sony's focus last night, however, was all games. As for when we'll see the elusive box? "There will be multiple opportunities to share the look of the console between now and launch," he said, "We just didn't choose this first event as the time to show it." In speaking with Sony president of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida this morning, we confirmed that we'll get to go hands-on with the PlayStation 4 "by E3," which goes from June 11th to the 13th.
    I am sure he isn't the only one....

    I hope it's not either. In this money strapped economy, this would be a deal breaker if the price is under $400. Maybe I'm wishing for too much?

    naw not at all. that would be the best move in my opinion for us and them.... if ps4 was under $400 i would bet it will sell out like in day 1 or less than a week of it's first shipments

    supply and demand. Theres no way in hell it breaks below $500. Yes, it will eventually be under $400, probably in a year of release, but no way it goes below that for holiday season 2013.

    Me buying this has less to do with the price (as long as they don't go over the top with it) then it does wih launch titles. Obviously Watch Dogs is being reported as a launch day title but that would not be enough for me. I want a couple games that will take me a bit to complete so other games can come out.

    I never buy them when they're released... I want a few models so they work out most of the kinks... unless it looks like the orb with the glass panel.. then its a first day buy for me... otherwise ill wait for the ugly "slim" model

    I'll be getting this at release even if it has a 599$ price tag. I pray that it wont be that high (349-399$ sounds reasonable), but I know I honestly can't sit here and say that I wont buy it at release. Hopefully they've learned from their mistakes.

    I'll be getting this on day 1 regardless of the price. Although saying that I would obviously rather not pay ridiculous money for it. I paid an absolute fortune on PS3 launch day
