    THINK PPL

    THINK ABOUT IT when the ps3 FIRST came out it was like 800$ so a ps4 will definitely be more then that even for the lowest GB it will probably be around 900$ which is stupid , and all new games are 60$ so ps4 games will probably be around 70 or 80. eventually game systems will only for the rich an thats makes me mad cuz we are already waiting for it to be released an then have to wait even longer for the price to drop :( . i think it will be released in december 2012 cuz they always release around christmas time , they did with the ps3 in 06 same with the 360

    Seriously you need to think.

    PS3 was a lot more expensive to make than it would be now. TBH a higher specced machine with newer parts would cost much less than PS3 cost to make back in 2005/2006. A more powerful CPU than the cell like an FX series Quad core could be bought by Sony for about £40, a GPU based on something like the HD 7870 would probably cost them less than £100. Bluray was an expensive, new piece of tech when PS3 came out, it's dirt cheap now and would probably only cost Sony about £20 to put a 12x BD Rom in PS4. All in it would cost Sony about £350 to manufacture and package a PS4 with the above spec, 2GB of VRAM and another 4GB of standard but fast DDR3 for system RAM would likely be major overkill in a console, but Sony could use GDDR5 as the RAM for everything, either that or DDR4, 2GB would probably be plenty of RAM, but 4GB to future proof the system more and we'd all be gaming at 1080p+ resolutions, with 60FPS and high to ultra levels of effects compared to PC in games, even in complex and highly detailed environments. Being that consoles are closed systems developers can use more of the system's power for the performance of games next to what a similarly specced gaming PC could achieve. Overall we'd be looking at a console with more than 12 times the power of PS3, just look at what Naughty Dog could do in a game like The Last Of Us or Quantic Dreams Kara Tech Demo, then imagine what they would be capable of with even more power and ram, we'd be seeing the graphical sealing reached at 1080p, so Avatar levels of graphics are quite possible. Something like a poorly optimized Crysis, with all of the best textures and graphical effects even the most modded versions of that game can have would be easily doable on this hardware, especially when a game is made for such a system, this system would likely have more than enough power for games like that. PS4 manufactured at that price, will likely make a loss for Sony at release (but likely not as much as PS3 did), just like PS3 did, so a release price of about £300 is likely or just under $500, maybe close to $450 with the cost of parts in different countries. Even if PS4 was a higher specced machine it will likely not go above £400/$650 for the release cost to consumers. BTW PS4 isn't coming out this year, if it was then it would've been shown at this year's E3, if PS4 was ready then it would easily take the wind out of Wii U's release, but nothing's been shown yet, so 2013-2014 is likely the release time.

    Don't Be Dumb, Save!

    Hey guys! What's the worry?! Look, Christmas 2013 is FAR AWAY. If you guys really honestly think it will be $800 (trust me it won't be), start saving now. All you need to save is $53/month starting RIGHT NOW. That's mega easy, sure you might have to give up a friday night each month, but for most of us, we can continue living our lives saving for this PS3 without giving up anything. $53 is simply pocket change. C'mon guys, don't complain! And about the "no used games" don't get mad at sony and microsoft, get mad at the people who STEAL STUFF ONLINE. I do it too, but honestly, we're the problem, not them.

    Speculation ONLY (Join in!)

    1947.95 hours in 4 years at 6 hours per day (the US works the longest hours, so this is plausible) (about how long PS4 has probably been in the making). Probably what.. 200-250 people to design and make the game? I'd give them an average hourly wage of $16.00 give or take $3.00 (of course this would be in yen). So the total cost just to pay the employees? $6,233,440 - $7,791,800 and it probably cost, what.. well, they probably just have "profit percentage contracts" with the companies that they deal with, other wise it would cost around $200 to make a PS4 even with big discounts. Let's just put initial total production cost at around $35 Million. If Playstation were to sell for $800 per console, it would take 43,750 to pay off the work that had been done. 3 years ago, PS3 had 33 million consoles sold. I'd estimate it at 50 million now. So let's say that they sold 10 million the first year (remember that the first day PS3 came out, it sold 81,639 units in 24 hours in Japan alone), that would be $8 BILLION the first year. So.. these are just small numbers, obviously, the manufacturing costs will greatly differ, I wouldn't be surprised if it cost 100's of millions of dollars to build the ps4 AND ship it all over the world. With that being said, do you really still think that it will cost $800? Keep in mind that in the 2nd quarter of 2012, Sony had already had revenues of $81,683,335,000. That's 81 billion, 683 million, 335 thousand dollars. So these numbers that shelling out are probably close to correct, all but the manufacturing costs. I say $599.

    ps4 is going to be awsome

    because no telling what ps4 can do probably take gaming into a whole new world

    yah

    yah, most certainly

    hey guys

    Ps4 will be very expesive and some people cant even afford one

    gv

    you think?

    It will be about £250 without

    It will be about £250 without VAT, according to the sony websites. It might vary in different countries though. Fingers crossed. Eitherways, they are trying to keep it low-cost, meaning it shouldn't be as expensive as a PS3.

    mmmmm just a thought

    i wish they would have thought of a custom game console idea that would fully revolution the gaming (console) industry and dont say that would turn them into computers and its not fair to customize your console if you have the money to waste why not. make it compatible or make an upgrade compatible to the next sytem it wouldn't be that hard to do and more economical to the companies stand point to customize the guts of the console to the users preference to further support my case i say this you could make people pay money for backwards compatibility and so on im sure everyone would be willing to pay a little extra to go back to ps1 or ps2 or ps3 games at say 50-100 dollars and the customization process could be based on games etc that you love to play or gaming styles and customizing the inside to support an upgrade doesnt even mean making a compatible control medium that could be done simply by a software upgrade it would be incredible advantageous and a new way to experience gaming that has never been tired with consoles before and it would set sony apart from every other gaming console which would provided it was done correctly make it the best console in the world simply get there acts together and be a revolutionary for the players sake 10000100100100001X100011000001110000011000-oooo1 system config.error

    Better for consumers but not Sony...

    If you make a console upgradeable, you effectively extend the life of the console. If the console has too long of a life then people will not buy the PS5, PS6, PS7 and so on and therefore this will mean less money for Sony. However, I think your idea would actually work very well and be awesome IF... Sony was the only place that you could buy the upgradeable parts from. This way Sony still gets their money and the consumer gets more options. But if Sony is trying to compete with a whole crap load of other companies when it comes to buying parts then I think they will lose money in the long run because of competition.

    You clearly do not understand

    You clearly do not understand why they are making it a "closed system". You can actually get more from your hardware if you design the hardware to work for one purpose. You are referring to a PC having the ability to change out hardware. This is not as efficient and you are actually spending more money to get something less effective. Your point is not valid.

    Punctuation? I bet no one

    Punctuation? I bet no one ever reads anything you type. I certainly couldn't be bothered...

    Cant wait for the new and

    Cant wait for the new and improved. Always wanting to get that excitement of experiencing new technology just to know what the future may bring.

    NOPE

    i REFUSE TO BUY 1

    how much will it be!!!!!!!!!!! wat it to cheppp plz make it lessssssss afordablr!!!!(: thank u m43z1e789

    cost

    It will be roughly £400-£500

    Ps4 pre-order

    EB games in Australia have been advertising pre-orders for ps4 for wait for it....... $899Aus which I think was about what the ps3 sold for when it was first released in Australia. That will make it the $599 no one was happy about last time. Very disappointing Sony. Check out the EB games Aussie web site and have a look for yourself. ebgames.com.au

    Please, learn to spell.

    You basically said to make it more expensive, Learn to spell please for the benefit of everyone.

    Ps4

    It looks awesome

    everything about PS 3 or 4

    I had PS2 it was great SOCOM US NAVY SEALS was a great game then is was killed but if the don't make SOCOM again the way it was with out the cheaters and coders I will not buy this one I sold my PS3 and got an XBOX ps4 will not be so good the games on PS3 sucked they don't even have that many games look how long it took for some games to come out if I could talk to these guys I would be able to make there PS4 so good XBOX fans would sell there XBOX and come over to PS4 and I could all so make there games ten times better trust me on that these old guys don't know what there doing half the time I'm 36 and played the first video games that came out and i think out side the box in more then 3D but they will never know what it takes to make a REALY GREAT GAME because they will know me it sad.

    Right on

    The ps2 Socom games, ALL of them, ruled...period.

    Um Really?

    Dude, use a period will you? Considering your talking of how you know the industries inside out.Game Developers didn't want to even work with Sony on any games, because the ps3 had so complicated gaming software and coding that was so complicated,that most game Companies couldn't make games that were compatible with the system in able to play the games.The companies didn't even know where to start. So they went to Xbox because Microsoft had simpler components and had simpler coding to make games for so that's why the Sony released so few games for the ps3. Also if i remember correctly at the time it was cheaper to make Xbox games.

    Hay Dude

    I am having a period thinking about IT....

    Yeah, Ibeleive this individual...

    is studying Grammar as a second language LOL. Have a good one. Sorry, I couldn't, resist. Cheers, Dave

    MONEY

    PS4 should cost 1000'000'000 :D

    Why?

    That is the only question.

    THE PS4

    It looks awesome because it's like a big computer and her price is exebtible

    PS3 VS PS4

    If Sony states that developers have not truelly exposed the qualities of the PS3 and what it can do that shows that developers are way behind in game design. look at Gran Turismo5 its truelly 1 of the most immersive driving simulators and it was design by sony and gran Turismo6 was held back to be made for PS4

    the new system

    now that it is coming out in a while people are getting look at what could be for it and for me to say i am very disappointed than what i hoped for and wanted

    new ps4 games to come should or shouldn't

    i agree with my cousins post i saw somewhere? any ways they should take some older like games and make them cooler scarier emotional what ever and better graphics and sound to them that would be cool and maybe some other fetchers that would be awesome!!! for example Legend of the D. i loved that game when i was younger. if they did that even better DAM that had so great ratings already it even beat some of ps3 games if did it for ps4 in 1 or 2 disc instead of four that would be badass and i would be seriously impressed.

    Ps4 preorder

    I pre ordered a ps4 from the GameStop store the day it was announced and paid them in full. I think I was the second one to preorder. Am I gaurenteed one at launch day even if I don't go to the midnight launch at the store? Can I go in the morning to pick it up and they would still have it for me?

    yes

    they order just enough dont worrie you have 48 hours to pick it up

    thanks

    thanks

    Mouth Full

    Dont be gay, just play

    Target

    Do I have to pay target in full if I pre-order thru them?

    pre-ordering

    So i just conviced my folkes to pre-order the PS4 for me. Only problem is I cant find any place that still has them. Is there any way I could still pre-order one? And if not what are my chances of geting one at the midnight release?
