    PS4: Would you pay $1000?

    Well? Would you pay $1000 dollars for a playstation 4 from a store on release?

    For those of us in the UK, right now that's about 622.

    And for those peeps in the rest of Europe its approximately 727.

    I'd be interested to find out your thoughts, personally I would buy a playstation 4 for this price.

    Quite simply NO, and i highly doubt it would cost that much if Sony actually want a sizeable piece of the gaming market.

    No I'm not a tool, I find that quite offensive actually, all I did was post a thread stating a speculative price for the ps4 and that I would pay that for it. FYI I reserved MW3 for 5, went to a midnight release, queued up for an hour, payed 45 for it, got my 5 back, and I haven't really played it that much since skyrim came out.

    I agree, they would definetely make less revenue if they sold units that price. Ironically, less parents would be buying their young kids playstation 4s at that price, and therefore wouldn't buy games for them which are way out of their age range, which can only be a good thing.

    Nope, that's way too much. If I got my PS3 two years after the initial release, then I guess I can wait another two years after the PS4 came out. By then, me and my PS3 will probably be ready to part.

    Likelyhood is it will cost max $500 or equivalent. sony learnt their lesson with high start price and will have seen the 3ds price cut as a warning. i'd pay max 400 euro.

    I can get a PC that plays every game that can be found in the market for that price, so no.

    Well there have been other consoles that have sold for that price like the NEO GEO. It was $1000 back in the early to mid 90's... I think in today's money that would be $1500-$2000.

    True, and I'm sure it would be very depressing when we get to the checkout and actually fork out that amount. Although, I saved up for my playstation3 for a long time and it cost me 425 (with a few games) and looking back, I wouldn't have wanted to wait, I've had some great gaming experiences. I had a crappy job at the time too, so my finances took quite a blow, but it was worth it. I'm a little bit better off now, so I would gladly save up if it was gonna cost that much, provided that the technological leap from consoles was impressive enough.

    No, absolutely not. Sony figured out if they price too high, they won't sell well. They shouldn't make a PS4 that does 40gig & 80gig, they should come 250gig standard, and that should be priced at most $400. Any more than that, I wait for a major price drop.

    Nope, plenty of good games on various systems that I could cover with that money- not worth it for a system alone.

    Nope, I'd probably hold off on getting it until the price lowers, just like I did with the PS3.

    Sony isn't going to make the same mistake twice, they'll price their next home console at a reasonable price, and most like take quite a loss on it at first to establish themselves on the market. The likelihood of a home console even costing as much as the PlayStation 3 did at it's launch is slim to none.
