PS4 cheaper than expected?

I got my PS2 Christmas of that year. It was still very hard to get. My mom told me the story and she happened to go into the Wiz I think it was, and she ended up getting the last one. The guy said they were all out and he said he was going to check the back to see if there were any more and there was one sitting in the back. You know, now that I thin k about it; how fucking funny would it be if some guy who worked there stashed it back there and the guy went back and found it and sold it to my mom.

Either way, when I opened it, I  hugged the box, took the 2 games I got (SSX was one of them I think), ran into my room, hooked it up and played all day and night until I had to go back to school 10 days later. Even though it broke, I still have that PS2 :)

I think Juslight and another buddy of ours pulled an all-nighter. I ended up getting mine as one of those stupid bundle deals, where I paid way more than I should have.

I think I need to see the price and the lineup of games first before I decide to pull and all nighter. I\'m not too stoked for the games currently in the lineup for launch. Though if Destiny launches, maybe :shy:

if a tablet is 600 or more I don\'t see how the ps4 can be so cheap unless sony wants to lose even more money off this thing. I am expecting a 499.99 price tag and I consider that to be damn good.

i doubt it will be $500 but might be $300 to $400.

look at the xbox360 when it first launched back in Nov 2005, it has that $300 and $400 price tag for 2 models.

the ps3 have similar specs and performance of the xbox360, well maybe the ps3 is slightly more powerful than the 360 a tiny bit, but because the blu-ray was recently launched that year of 2006 which makes it $200 more expensive on the ps3.

nowadays, the blu-ray drive are very cheap compare to when it first came out over 6 1/2 years ago.

And using PC components this time around definitely will keep the price down. One problem Sony had was they tried to jam pack it with tech. Not only did they launch with blu-ray which jacked up the cost they also put the Cell processor in which also drove up the cost which was expensive to develop and difficult to develop games for. Microsoft stuck more with PC components so the price point was cheaper. Good to see Sony learned from their mistakes and put in PC components to keep cost and ease of development in check. Really seems they took the components and figured out how to squeeze every ounce of power out of them as well as make them efficient. Or so it seems on how they frame their architecture.

I\'ll never be an early adopter because of the problems they tend to have. But some of the games have looked really good. Curious how theyre going to handle it though since I could see a LOT of people sticking with their ps3 for longer than people that stuck with their ps2.

But killzone 4 looked really good
