A year and a half after the official release of both the Xbox One and the PS4, we've seen the Xbox One already slash it's price $50. Could the PS4 be far behind? As of February 2015, Sony has stated that NO price cut is planned for the PlayStation 4. If you want it, better get the $400 together.

To figure out the price based on hardware, we can compare it to what it would be like if someone were to build a computer with similar specifications as the console is essentially made up of computer components. We know that the PlayStation 4 will feature an AMD 8-core processor with a 1.84 TFLOPS Radeon-based graphics engine. In addition, it will sport 8 GB GDDR5 memory, a built-in hard drive and a Blu-ray/DVD drive running at 6x and 8x speed, respectively.

Let's start with the processor; AMD sells an 8-core processor on its own website for $160. It also sells the 2 TFLOPS Radeon HD 6870 for another $145, which also has 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. Though it is more powerful than the PlayStation 4 with 2 TFLOPS, it has a quarter of the memory expected for the console, so we can even out the difference in price. Hard drives for the PlayStation 3 ranged in a number of sizes, but the PS4 will come with a 500GB hard drive. This can cost anywhere between $100 and $150, depending on the brand name and speed. Finally, a Blu-ray/DVD drive for a computer would run about another $50 on average.

Playstation 4 Price and Cost DetailsWith these basic components, a similarly-equipped computer would cost about $450 to $505, depending on the website or store you buy each item from. This kind of price is actually within the confines of what Asahi, a well-known Japanese publication, guessed the cost of the PlayStation 4 would be.

When you look back at the PlayStation 3, which released for about $600, it makes sense that Sony would not want to repeat this mistake; with such a high price, sales suffered as gamers were too hesitant to spend such a fee on a console. $399 was a smart move on their part, that's for sure.

In terms of the lower price this time around, Sony Worldwide Studios vice president Michael Denny has been quoted as saying "We want a system that can reach as broad a gaming audience as possible. We have created a console absolutely focused on gamers – and we want that to be gamers in the broadest sense as well."

What this means is that Sony realizes the pricing mistakes it made on the PlayStation 3 by originally pricing the console not only out of reach for casual gamers but hardcore gamers as well. It's nice to see that they haven't made the same mistake twice. Another smart move on Sony's part was keeping games at the same price and not restricting the use of pre-owned games. Since the PS4 comes with a decently sized hard drive, an HDMI cable, and the controller, there won't be any required accessory purchase out of the box.

It's been over a year now since the console released and we've seen no price drops. That being said, various bundles have surfaced during the holiday season. The announcement of a 20th Anniversary PS4 has also brought a new stylized design into the fold. While Xbox has since lowered their price and made the Kinect optional, PS4 still continues to sell strong. It's all thanks to Sony's wise decision to keep the system priced at something far more reasonable than PS3's launch price.

PS4 will have to cost more than $300

Right now even in America where prices are cheaper than here in the UK a PS3 320GB is very close to $300 and that's 2006 technology. Wii U will cost around $300 for the 32GB model and that console is built on what are now some pretty economically priced parts, while a bit of a jump up in power over 360 and PS3 the system isn't a quantum leap over those machines and developers have been saying that PS4 and Xbox 720 will be a quantum leap over their predecessors. If PS4 was to cost $300 then it will not be a very big jump in power over PS3. $300 is just not a realistic expectation for a truly next gen console. All of the latest rumours are pointing towards Sony going with AMD for their CPU and GPU. Games developers like Epic have been saying their game engines will require about 10 times the power of PS3 (so about 2.5 TFlops) to achieve their next gen results, the closest AMD graphics card to that is the 7870, this retails for about $255 in America, though the majority of rumours are actually saying Sony will go with a GPU chipset based on the 7970. If people bare in mind that Sony used a GPU chip based on the 7800 GT for PS3 and the full retail GPU retailed for $300 then the $399 may be a bit expensive, although the price of parts like Bluray and a cpu could be kept cheap then maybe a $100 chipset from the 7970 isn't all that unlikely, not when Bluray costs close to the price of a cell in PS3, which was about $80. If we said $100 for the GPU, $50 for a 4.2GHz FX-4170 then this would be a bargain of a system. Expecting a machine with this kind of a spec to cost $300 is just not realistic and this is similar what developers are saying will be in PS4. If you're not willing to spend more than $300 then go for a Wii U, as this system will bring a step-up in performance over current gen, with some good innovations with the new tablet controller, for the price bracket you're willing to dip into. If you're not willing to shell out more than $300 then you won't be able to get the bargain of a machine that PS4 will end up being. I say PS4 will be a bargain because even if it costs $450-$550 it would still cost you far less than it would to build a similarly specced gaming PC. Hell even the CPU and GPU together would cost you more than $500, put RAM on top of that (another $40 for 8GB of DDR3, PS4 would probably have 2-4GB of a fast unified ram, so wouldn't need both 3GB of VRAM in the GPU and 4+GB of a system RAM), basically you'd be lucky to build a pc with this spec for much less than $800. Also please remember that PS4 will be able to use the vast majority of it's hardware's power to play games, where as the gaming PC with a similar spec will be using it's power on operating system and other background tasks.

Ummmm, what the hell are you talking about?!??!!??

This is almost all totally whack, I am assuming you thought of all of this on your own. -_-" But anyway, look at Sony's NEW PS3 slim, it went down in cost $50 for a more compact and lighter console (which is usually much more expensive to make)... And on a Side note, the PS3 still isn't all that outdated. Do some MORE research about what this machine would cost to make, (Not trying to be rude) but all of this i am assuming has been researched off of U.K. sites. I dont know if you've noticed but the U.K. isn't exactly the least expensive, from what i've seen, the least expensive places to buy this stuff is the U.S. where to build that rig, it would cost.... 200-400 dollars to build, depending where Sony will purchase these Units from. On a side note, If sony decided to put 32 gb of ram in the damn thing it wouldn't cost that much. And keep in mind that The PS4 is supposed to be coming out early 2014 to late 2015. All of this stuff is going to be dirt cheap if trends continue...

Research yourself before calling BS

Rumours for 8000 series AMD GPUs have come from leaked papers regarding the 8850 and 8870, they're all over the internet, so you're assumptions were wrong there, no I didn't think of that on my own. The models in the 8000 series are due for release early 2013, if 9000 series features are going into PS4 and XBox 720 (or whatever their names are) then that would work with the GPU release cycles and a late 2013, maybe early 2014 release and likely allow for more efficiency gains in the graphics hardware of Sony and MS's new machines. All of this is researched by numerous users on multiple technology sites, very few people disagree with the specs for 8850 or 8870. Prices are based on US markets, so learn to read, again your assumptions were wrong there also. Extensive research has been done on possible parts that actually exist and could be the basis for next gen consoles. BTW multiple developers have said they are developing games for both the next Xbox and Playstation, with plans to release titles in line with the new machines before 1st of Jan 2014, so it's not likely to be late 2015. If you argue something like "how can they develop games for systems that aren't fully finished yet" devs have scallable development kits now, that make it easy to port their games to different hardware, as long as the overall archetecture is similar porting to different formats is relatively quick, it's also likely that Sony and MS would be using similar archecture to fit such requirements, while the actual power of each system can be different to allow them to develop the systems for their relative budgets, this makes sense given different console makers would still want the 3rd party titles that help to keep them competitive within the industry. DDR4 stacked is likely to be what will be in next gen consoles, not DDR3, so the cost of DDR3 has nothing to do with what will be in next gen consoles, your point is made moot there. DDR4 is more efficient, stacked with a large enough bus is can be made 2 times faster than GDDR5, which was one of the RAM types originally rumoured to be in PS4, it's also apparently far cooler when stacked in similar volumes to GDDR5, not forgetting cheaper when made for either 2.5/3D stacked units. If you'd read the post you replied to properly you'd have seen that it clearly points to relatively cheap costs for next gen consoles, with significantly higher compute performance over PS3 easily possible in a console package with pretty low production costs, even using existing GPUs, RAM and CPUs. As for your comment on the PS3 not being all that outdated, it can barely handle 720p in a game like Black Ops 2, with 30FPS, same goes for Assasin's Creed 3, with minimal if any effects like AA or AF let alone particle effects and other features of more modern hardware, where as a system like Wii U (which is made using a GPU with about 3 times the compute performance of the whole PS3) can manage 1080p, 60FPS (confirmed by developers) on the main monitor, along with rendering graphics on the tablet at a lower resolution, that thing's hardware is 2012 based stuff, but it's pretty low end and it's at least 3 times the power of PS3, as well as being a far more efficient system overall, featuring graphical effects older systems like PS3 and Xbox 360 can't do. PS3 is 6 year old hardware, it can't manage complex graphics, physics etc at the same level as even basic modern technology so yes it's outdated, do some actual research on the subjects you're talking about before making a tonne of unstubstantiated claims other people have actually researched about. Sites I've used are Neogaf, IGN and a number of others whilst trawling the internet, if I recall their names I'll post here again. My post was far less whack than what this site actually claims will be could be in PS4, like the 6670 and A8-3850, which while a step up from PS3 it wouldn't be any more powerful than Wii U.

You're talking about having a

You're talking about having a console such as PS4 to a PC budget cost? You do realize that the PC will always be more cost effective than the console simily because 70% of those games that comes out in PS4/xbox720 will be in PC as well. Lets not forget that for us hardcore gamers with decent pc builds can get these so called games for free....yes piracy. All the popular FPS games that america loves are also on PC. So if you're arguing about cost of building a PC vs PS4, think about the money you are saving by not buying the $60 games... Some people dont realize the freebies the PC world has over console.

Cost issues

Right now to build a PC with something like the originally rumoured 7950, that GPU alone costs more than $300 on Amazon, Sony can build the GPU themselves for a fraction of that, same goes for any Quad core processor (an FX-4170 is about $105) or they can buy the parts they need from AMD for far less than retail, thus the idea that PCs are more cost effective is not right. Sony can make a PS4 with that tech for probably less than $300, yet it would cost more than $500 to build that PC, with Bluray, HDD and everything else needed to make a decent working PC, lets not also forget that the console is a closed system and will get more power for games because devs can optimize for that hardware. Not all games are cheaper on PC, something like Black Ops 2 is actually the same price on PC as it is on PS3. Pirated games aren't legal, pirating is theft and unless you buy those games you're not supporting the industry, if the industry doesn't make money then developers will lose their budgets and eventually there won't be a games industry to steal from. Anyway games still get pirated on the Bluray format, which is what's likely to be in PS4. PS4 will still be cheaper than the similarly specced PC it will be based on, because Sony buy or make parts for a fraction they'd cost a PC builder to buy.

PS4 - cost

I think the price will be between 500$ and 700$. I would pay up to 800$ it if the specs will beat the average high end pc hardware at the releae time

so would i

so would i

adil faisal

ps 4 is goods

I want I want

every thing that it brings is peace to my mind all playstation offers are like dreams come true for me i want the new playstation 4 i would like to be part of sony playstation co.

Not more than 500$

I have heard that the playstation 4 wont cost more then 500$ If thats true, i will buy it! =)


i only buy the ps4 if the price is gonna be min.450 euro and max 550.. but i will wait a few months after the release so they can fix some issues...and hoply the price gonna be 400 then :D

I won't pay more than $500 maybe $600. If its more then that I can wait until they lower their price. I'll say $400 to $500 is a good price. Also, I think the controllers shouldn't be more than $60.


love sony!!!

playstation of to get a better network too much lagg and drop

Drop signal we as PlayStation customers spend too much money on PlayStation games and accessories for us to not have a proper internet connection Xbox the competition does not have a lot of lags thats a fact check it out I have been with PlayStation for a very long time and if this console come out and it is high in price I'm switching to xbox

talk of ps4

They should set a limit for different ones like if it has more data compacticy and such and let playstation figure the witch price is rite but that me.


I think the price should be between 200-400 dollars because you would want the buyers to buy the ps4 for a reasonable price the lower the price the more it sells


im guessing it will be in the 800 range we are in a new day and age games are getting pricey so will the new systems i say 800 to 1000.

No way it will be $800

They will need to stay under $500 with the PS4. Simple reason for this is that great gaming PCs can be bought for $500 and allow for upgrading. If consoles want to stay relevant they are going to need to stay around the $500 mark.

Under $500?

Do you even fathom what it cost to get those parts? A great gaming pc for $500 really? Where? The price for the Operating System alone is more than a hundred dollars. CPU another hundred, Motherboard, another hundred, then there is the power supply and ram which together is about another. Then the case, mouse, keyboard and monitor. Another 2 hundred bucks right there. So that's what about $650 and that's not even including the Graphics card which in order to get a decent one you'll need about $250. Freaking stupid none-pc gamer dweebs. You know nothing about how expensive high end PC's are


Yea basic gaming pc's are easily $1,000+


No one BUYS an OS what is this 1992? Go to Tigerdirect and get a bare bones AMD FX kit and a GTX 650 for under 500 and bam a perfect gaming system. For a grand you can get an i7 with water cooling and stupid high specs. I could build the development kit for under 500 easy, sorry Sony no one will pay over 350.

hope not to much...

The most i.ll be able to afford is probaly about 450, 500 at the most...guess I could wait a while though...cant wait til TESVI!!!

I Say

I say the ps4 should not cost anymore than $500 that is fair to sony and to us as the customers I just hope that they don't screw us on the design n the prices for the games or that they screw us by not allowing us to use used games on the ps4 if they do then they just screwed themselves royally

Backwards Compatible?

How bout some backwards compatibility for coughing up all that cash? I never threw away any of the ps2 classics.

this is my take on things

do guys not notice that nintendo has set out an entire new system for 300$ and 350$ (wii U)? do you know what that means for sony and microsoft? they have no choice but to make their new devices 300-499$ dollar range max. people are going to buy the Wii U for its low price and they know its nintendo's newest technology that will be supported for 5+ years. their not going to buy ps3's and xbox's because to the average consumer the newer the device the better (even tho the wii u is not much powerful then current gen tech). To a consumer if theirs a device out their thats a next gen device and the same price as a current gen their going to buy it no matter what specs. The ps3 and xbox 360 are like 7 and 6 years old. sony and microsoft are going to be a year late with their next gen's compared to the wii u and their not going to give nintento the upper hand by making their devices 600-1000$ because no one is going to buy them! i know you guys are taking under consideration all the specs that goes into the new systems but if i were sony i would make 2 or 3 of the same system but with diffrent specs. ex-hardrives, memory, etc. so what do you guys think?

I Agree Kinda

I truly doubt Sony will make their new gen 300-400 because then they will no longer make a profit on the ps3 but they also can't make it more than 500 since no one will want to spend that much on a system except for a fanboy. sry if this don't make to much sense but I'm on my phone n its going left n right n stuff so Havering a hard time keeping up with what I'm typeing

Re; this is my take on things

Sony and Microsoft don't have to bundle a tablet with their next gen consoles, this is a component of Wii U that supposedly costs around $60 to make, so Sony and Microsoft can actually use this to their advantage. Because of this very fact Sony and Microsoft won't have to charge much more than Wii U to release significantly more powerful machines. Current PS4 dev kit rumours put Sony as using AMD's A10, I can buy everything mentioned in that dev kit rumour for less than a Wii U's retail price. A10-5800K, 8GB DDR3 1600MHz, 8x LG Bluray Drive, Asus Motherboard with onboard soundcard, Case with 500Watt PSU, all of that for under £300, an extra 8GB of DDR3 can be bought for another £17. Sony would be buying all of those parts for far less than I can, with massive bulk deals, same goes for microsoft and that's a system easily on par or slightly more powerful than the Wii U. If MS and Sony wanted to chuck another £100 at it they can definitely afford to buy the GPU chip from the 7870 plus it's RAM, which would could all easily fit into something the size of a 360 or PS3. Straight up this would be a machine with over 3Tflops of performance and plenty of RAM for 1080p gaming. Of course there would be differences with the consoles over the straight PC parts, because they'd be optimized to work at their best together. The major selling points over the Wii U would be their overall performance easily being around 5 times that console, with a built-in hard drive, with the ability to play blurays. If those parts are used Sony & Microsoft can easily release for around or even under the Wii U's release price. Sony seems to love android with their tablets and smart phones, so it's highly possible they will allow some connection between their next gen console and those devices for Wii U style functionality, which if built in from day one provides similar possibilities to Wii U, same goes for Microsoft with smartglass, etc. When it comes to selling different models having different quantities of RAM isn't the best idea, mainly because developers plan for one layout of the core hardware and optimize for that in closed systems like a console, but different SKUs for things like HDD size is pretty much a given IMO, there are rumours that subscription deals could be on the cards, with consumers paying a smaller fee up front and a monthly fee to pay off the console over time, with some added features like Xbox Live gold, PSN+, possibly providing access to free games. For microsoft they may include Kinect in some models, but not in others to keep the price within some people's reach (seems obvious that some may want to use their old Kinect with the new console), I think it may be a similar thing for Sony too with move or whatever new gadgets they come up with. I personally wouldn't mind if Sony packaged an updated Vita with PS4, Sony could play on the fact that you can play on the move, which you can't do with Wii U, MS could do a similar thing with their Windows Tablet. Ultimately though console manufacturers all need to focus on making good games, Sony's IPs this gen have been very good, MS has lacked a bit on releasing new ones, with nintendo I think they also need to release some newer game franchises (though ZombiU does look good) and really use the Wii U's capabilities to show how good a decent Zelda and Metroid could really be. It's about time MS and Sony showed their next gen consoles, 6 & 7 years is a very long time to go without releasing new machines.

You should know that it

You should know that it doesn't matter, there are always the people who really don't care and don't need to care about the price of the console. So the price is not relevant the price will drop eventually and sales will rise.

do guys not notice that nintendo has set out an entire new syste

If you Havnt noticed the controllers on these games are ALOT EASIER TO USE with that being said Xbox and Sony can easily raise there prices. they both do so much more then nintendo. and are alot easier to figure ou Not to mention graphics are 1000x times better then nintendos the new consoles will easily be priced @$700.00 or more.

If you hadn't noticed

I wouldn't personally say that there's any difference in how easy it is to use these modern consoles comparing Wii to PS3 & Xbox 360, they're all easy to get the hang of and pretty intuitive in their own ways. Saying the graphics on Sony & Microsoft's current systems were 1000 times better than Wii is a bit of an overstatement, while they have been an improvement they weren't the proper HD generation they were meant to be. A large portion of titles on the PS3 & 360 were upscaled to 720p from sub HD resolutions, while Wii performs well at 480p. This is coming from someone that has a Wii, better never uses it, I game mainly on PS3 & 360. In terms of Wii U vs PS3/360, Wii U edges out in a lot of the released multiplatform games, though 1st party games and exclusives don't really show what the console is capable of yet. The performance of Wii U isn't surprising considering it has more modern hardware, where 360 and PS3 are built around 7 and 6 year old parts. BTW PS4 and the next Xbox won't have to easily cost $700, they can be released for not much more than Wii U, if they don't have their own tablet controllers they can have a decent jump in performance over the Wii U, even just having something built around an AMD Quad Core APU like the current A10, with a slightly souped up GPU (think something around the HD7770 in performance). A GPU around the HD 7870 mark, with 2GB of GDDR5 RAM would be plenty for graphics and will be pushing more than 12 times the compute performance of a PS3. Wii U's around a 600-700GFlop console, PS3 produces about 200GFlops, a HD 7870 is around 2500GFlops, can be run on 175 watts, which combined with a low powered quad core CPU and 4+ GB of decent DDR3 for system RAM, could be used to make a console with a similar power draw under it's highest load as a PS3 draws from the wall, but cost no more than $500, with little loss to Sony at release. Parts to the consumer to make a gaming PC based around that would probably cost around $700, Sony would probably pay less than half that for everything including a far faster Bluray Drive (than the one in PS3), motherboard, HDD, PSU, Case, internal connectors & Cooling, separate Audio processing. Unless Sony wants to include a more modern version of Vita, as a tablet screen to put in the box, along with an updated Move I doubt the console would be priced anywhere near $700 and if they did that tablet would probably be a HD one, with it's own in built CPU & GPU to not use the resources of the main console's hardware. People need to understand just how much technology has moved on from the 2005-2006 stuff we have in our Xbox 360s and PS3s, how cheap things like Bluray, RAM, CPUs and GPUs have become for the level of performance they're capable of compared to current gen consoles. Even Wii U should have been more powerful than it is, but Nintendo went with the most power efficient stuff that can fit in the tiniest box possible right now without developing heat problems. I hope Sony & MS don't gimp out their systems, rather make them power efficient when just using the basic OS, but when it comes to games stick within a similar TDP as current gen. I honestly couldn't care about having some tiny box that could have been capable of much more if only it didn't have to occupy a smaller area than a laptop does.

Too expensive

I can understand that the ps4 will have alot of awesome new technology put into it but in the economy and job markets current state no one will be able to afford $700 no matter how reasonable the price is. Yes some will be able to get it but I think that they would make more money if it were set at $500. Because since the price is reduced more people will be able to afford it. Do the math. And then there would also be a higher increase in ps4 game and accessory sales. So in my opinion $500 is a good price for such a system. And if there is something wrong with my calculations fell free to comment on my math. :)

Re: Too Expensive

The tech to make a console capable of running something like Samaritan, Star Wars 1313 & all the most current levels of graphics at full 1080p 60 FPS isn't really that expensive now. A basic, but modern quad core processor & something around a HD 7870 can probably do it, with a lot of the effects turned on, especially when developers optimize well for specific hardware. As long as Sony & MS chuck in a minimum of 2GB of GDDR5 (though more is better) & maybe around 4GB of DDR3 with some eDram they'll have plenty of tech to play with. From a cost and wattage point of view something with that level of specs good be released for maybe $50 more than Wii U, a console with a 7970 equivalent GPU chipset could easily be put into a console for $500 & would have plenty of power for the next 6 years of console gaming. 7970 levels of performance would provide almost 20 times the power of PS3, which would be insane. People have put those in alienware x51's so I see no reason why a console specifically built to fit a similar sized case, with cooling designed for that specific hardware couldn't have something similar. Very little in the way of a loss would be made at that price, especially considering Sony would pay far less for the chips and stuff than consumers do for full size GPUs, with RAM already built into the price.

No more than $400

In my opinion, what really held Sony back this generation (and what kept me from getting a PS3 until last year) was the ridiculous price on its release, and still taking years to get down to a more affordable level. $400 is pushing it considering that once again it looks like Nintendo will have the lowest starting price, but anything higher will just lead to them having another slow start next gen, and I'd really hate to see that happen.

No More than $400

If i would pay more than $400, i would save to buy something else instead of a game system. A game system can't save my life, i would rather buy other things cost that much like a car per. month or food or even other technology that can help my lives.

in the Fisrt Week on Ps3 Sales

First week all around the world Ps3 sold around to more than 3,242,000 systems and the prices ranged from Hong Kong being the cheapest with 20Gb selling at $408 and 40Gb selling at $344, 60Gb at $485 and the 80Gb looks to have been only sold in the USA here is the wiki site


im only going to get it if its under $350


You should not have to pay that much if you trade In a newly ps3


I got a wii u. it is cool. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.I like to eat apples drink Gatorade cause water sucks, just like you crazy angry people arguing over a stupid selling price. A better idea is to wait til it comes out than complain.

I think I'm gonna buy a

I think I'm gonna buy a gaming desktop and hold on to my ps3' especially if the look at a $600+ price tag again on release.


I think I'm gonna buy a gaming desktop and hold on to my ps3' especially if they look at a $600+ price tag again on release. At least then I can just upgrade GPU etc.. And save a bunch

will try to hold out

gonna hold out as long as I can, but If Jak 4 comes out, well then I will have to fold and buy the system, i will probaly buy an xbox first, and will just have to wait for the amazing ps3 exclusives

PS4 Vs A Gaming Computer

Sony has to also think about the gaming computers systems... some will can top Sony's PS4 and leave PS4 in the dust... So some I think would just go out and get Gaming computer then a PS4 if the prices is to high... plus now a days, just about anyone can make or build a gaming computer and upgrade it when they have time to make it even better... that's all I have say! I will not get the PS4 if the price is too high!! I would rather have a gaming computer then a PS4 and the only way I will get it is when the price drops, for my children... they can wait until it then and play there PS3, Xbox until it happens.

Well i agree but...

The problem is that most good games would be on PS4/Xbox. Also you can play it on your big TV. (You can do the same with a PC/Mac though. Also you disregarding the spec of the PS4. If it is more powerful than a gaming computer would you buy it?

No matter how powerful the

No matter how powerful the console is, you can buy or build a gaming computer more powerful. And if the game's actually good, it will be on pc. There's a lot bigger game base for pc users as well, even though console is probably more popular at the moment. I have a mid range gaming laptop and it definitely looks better on an HDTV than an xbox.
