I think a price tag of $1,000

I think a price tag of $1,000 will outprice some of their target market. As the world goes through a financial crisis I think any new console will need to be cost effective for the average family. You can find the latest speculation surrounding the PS4 at the PS4 Forums.

NO Way

i would probably only pay $1000 if it had the characters pop out of the system and have me (fight, etc.) in my own home
Or if it was encased in Gold

OR IF IT PLAYED EVERYTHING KNOWN TO MAN

IM TALKIN A MEGASYSTEM THAT PLAYED XBOX PC PS3,2 and 1, videotapes,dvds bluray AND especially SEGA, nintendo 64, snes
THAT would be worth $1000 and then some

hmmm I got one more

Don't forget, it should play cassettes too, lol

Yup Yup

Not to mention if everytime you power it on a holographic dancing midget pops out on your living room floor and does the "tootsie roll" for 30 seconds.

Hell yeah!!! I'd pay 2000 for all of that!!!

would be cool

it would be cool for the ps4 played xbox games but if it even did its not like any ps fans will play it. beside sony knows thay got xbox cornered. and i know for sure its not going to cost $1000 if really is il still get it. its not like the xbox 720 or whatever its called going to beat the beast ps EVER.

I WANT MY ORANGE JUICE!!!!

I wonder when Ps5 is going to come out, and how much its going to cost.

I WANT MY ORANGE JUICE!!!!

hell yeah, that would be

hell yeah, that would be nice, ain't no way in hell that I'm going to pay for a game console thats $1000. Hell, I like my ps3 but damn, they must be out of their rabbit ass mind to think common people are going to pay this much....

you all soo stupid

this is the future,there no this is kid playing we all grow up soo ps4 is very good idea

It would have to be soooo bad

It would have to be soooo bad ass. so crazy good like a hooker jumps out and S***s and F***s me.lol.

maybe as long as most of the

maybe as long as most of the games were under 20 bucks or close to free and it would have to play at the very least all ps games including psp maybe throw a dvd/cd/bluray burner in there with it

PS3 for 1 grand...

people would pay over 1000 for a computer or a T.V so y not a PS3

dumb arss

we are talking about ps4 4 a grand not ps3

dont cus at people

dont cus at people calling the a dumb a**

PS4 ..if it is 1000 bucks

the question in itself seems to be being interpreted to most people that said no as, 'Would you buy a video game system for 1,000 bucks' and this answer is registering a lot of NO or HELL no...lol...However, think about what the latest video game systems offer (more than just playing a 'cartridge') ..Live streaming sports, HD movies to rent/ buy, chat rooms, downloadable content to include movies and video games...some video game systems are actually blu- ray players and computers as well. SO...the question with the PS 4 should logically be answered...MAYBE but I will need to have more details...well..because..if the PS4 offers a bunch of amazing technologies that you would end up buying separately in the next few years...well maybe 1,000 bucks is a wise and frugal investment...cheers! Here's to thinking before speaking...again cheers and thanks for listening.

Live streaming sports?

Have you actually used the ps3 browser? Maybe thats something you read about but never really tried. It does sound awesome when you read the details but experience has been something else. Streaming anything usually ends ups with the message that your system is not supported, and when you do find something that plays, its choppy as hell. If you open more then one window it usually crashes.

I thought the $600 I paid for my PS3 was enough money spent to play games and watch anime shows online from my PS3, and it wasn't. If sony won't do it with a $600 dollar system, what make's you think they would choose to do it with a $1000 system.

ps4 prices

The technology is good but the economy is so bad that not a lot of people will pay 1k for a console.....so i also say HELL NOOOOOOOO.........

about the ps4

just shut up about the ps4 it is going to be something like 1000 pounds and does still not come out for a year

Technology is messed UP!!!!!!!

I got my Ps3 in 2010 now Ps4 on 2012 November.... Sony stop making more Playstation consoles. $1000 F*****************************************************CK

HAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!!1!!

Such a hell NOOOOO!!! WTF, that $1000 I could have spend on clothes, games for another console, bills, and girls!!!!! F*ck NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

wow

wow how selfish and spoiled

i agree

i fully understand you. If sony is greedy for money that is just not right. If the president of sony decides the price of ps4 and charges 1000 bucks. Does he know how long it will take me to get 999.99 a.k.a. 1000 dollars.I'll have to get a bigger allouence i have to go to the baltimore harbor and play an instument lastly i have to weather pick pocket people or find a bank card

hell naw

where tha hell they do that at.... i got shit to do wit my grand and thats not spendin it on a damn PS4

Hell noooo!!!!!!!!!!! why??? i tell you why!!!

The reason why i would not pay 1000$ for the ps4 is because simple this people buy you off by saying a cumple of lies and on 7 to 6 months the console will start giving you problems like for example we have the PS3 AND xbox 360 comun problem yellow light of death or it wont read games when you call this people for see what they can do for fix it the charge you like 200$ just for the repair and lol lets don't talk on how long it will take lol yea i like the gaming but i just don't like the people who make this stuff all of them bouch theft if i would pay for 1000$ thing at least i will like to get a good service like free repair and good services cuz i like playing videos games alot

Of course!

PS3 started at a price of 600$ brings problems too alout of customers and another thing there are many people that dont buy PS3 for 300$ so Sony needs to be aware of the price

YOU SO CRAZY

YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR MIND. 1000 BUCKS IS A FURTUNE TO ME. SO THINK IT THRU ABOUT THE THING FOR PAYING FOR THE PS4 FOR A GRAND

I agree with you

I AGREE WITH YA. ONLY WEATHER RICH PEOPLE OR EIHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE A LOT OF MONEY WOULD BUY A P.S.4.AND PLUS ITS NOT GOING TO BE SELLING VERY WELL THEY CAN SELL IT FOR $299.99 A.K.A. 300 BUCKS OR JUST BE A DANG FREAKEN FOOL AND SELL IT FOR 1 GRAND. AINT NO BODY GOING TO BE WASTEN THEIR MONEY.

hell no

helll naw i want buy that shit what the hell wrong with yall just just thinking of a suggetion of that shit that one of the stupidest things i have ever heard of dunbasses

Maybe...

Only if you can play the ps2 and ps3 games on it cause i could sell them and try to get it for the thousand.

ps4

wtf who on earth would pay #1000 4 a damn console?

WTF sony

Why in the he'll would anybody pay a 1000 bucks just to play a damn video game? Just buy a ps3 for 200$ or so! All Sony is gonna do is make a different looking system, and a different looking controller, and slap a thousand dollar price tag on it.

I agree, no way would I pay a

I agree, no way would I pay a $1000.

I wouldn't pay a $1000 if PS4 could play PS1,2,3 games. (though I would love full BC)

$499 maybe. It shouldn't be priced above that.

keep in mind

ya,guys but remember 3/4years from now the ps4 is gonna be so old it may be 1000 now but later it will be 300 to 400 so trust me save your money for another time and besides 3/4years time there will be a much better gaming system like a vertual reality thing

Reason Why Charging So Much.

I believe the reason for the price being this high is so they can take some that money and recover some of the Tsunami Affected Area's. Oh well their Loss.

Slant Eye's

Damn Gooks, always trying to F*ck Over Everyone Else, Just Like In Pearl Harbor. Hiroshima. Nagasaki.

PS4

why would i spend 1000 dollars on a ps4 a ps3 is perfectly good you guys should lower the price. thats insane and if i buy a ps4 later on a ps5 would come out cmon and i will regret wasting 1000 dollars so you guys should lower the price because im not buying a ps4

wow

you realize this is just a fan page, not the official sony website, and this is just a poll asking to see how much people would spend on the ps4. Learn some facts before you start bagging please.

Sony PS4 $1000 thats £600

I love my gameing but there is now way i would pay more then £450 for a new PS4 and thats still $750.

WTF! Why? $1000!

Sony is taking it too f***ing far. All their doing is making a different console and a different controller and pricing it as $1000. And most likely it won't play ps1,ps2 and maybe even ps3 games in the future. I think it should be priced as $400-$700 at the most. They think that everyone is dumb enough to buy one because it looks shiny and sh**. I won't buy one if it's over $700. It would be cheaper and better for everyone just to keep or buy a ps3 and continue to buy ps3 games. All prices will go down and therefore much cheaper and easier for everyone. You don't really need anything better than a ps3. So just think about it.

you must be a 7 yo

you always drop the E when adding ing to words its gaming not gameing forget buying a ps4 go back to school

$1000 JUST TOO MUCH!

$1000 is too much for a ps4. Its just too much. Not many parents will buy their kids a ps4 if its $1000. If its over $600 i just wouldn't get one. Not everyone can afford to pay that much. Especially not 12-15 year old kids.
