    It'll probably bump down to $399 for everywhere else (which is a reasonable launch price).

    I believe this is appropriate

    If it's more than $400, then I'm definitely getting a WiiU first. Ugh. Why must my wallet suffer so..? Guess we'll see on the 20th..

    It can be anywhere from $399-$499, most likely $449 IMO. Not $599 US Dollars, but still a substantial amount.

    $428 = $599?

    Oh right, I forgot about the exchange rates from USD to stupidity.

    It's "over $400" converted from yen but it'll probably go down to $399. That was the launch price of the Xbox 360 last time I checked and it's a reasonable launch price if the hardware is truly next gen.

    Oh lord, will this turn out to be another Guild vs soulx thread?

    TBH, I thought that "$599 US DOLLARS!" line was a joke. It probably will go from $399-$499 though, like I said before.

    While $599 was just a joke, that was pretty funny.

    I couldn't get it for that price anyway. Maybe in 3 years.
    I hope it as has stable backwards capability and that these rumors aren't true.

    But it was a reasonable price for the hardware at launch. It's certainly not "$599".

    This is not too surprising considering the cost of the PS3 when that launched.

    I'm keen to see what this baby can do tho.

    Might seem like a reasonable price but it was filled with hidden costs.

    And $599 was a joke. Don't be so pissy.

    Heh, and I made a Nintendo joke a few threads back and everyone reported it. Gotta love GBAtemp.

    But yeah, $599, old joke, let's move on.

    I would totally pay $599 for a PS4.

    $400 is not that bad, it's $50 more than a Wii U Deluxe.
    It certainly beats paying $599.

    400 for a base system, 500 for deluxe with game and new move, then because of next gen dev enviorment 6-9 month wait for new software worth buying, so for me im going to keep playing ps3/wiiU until metal gear is brought to ps4 just like i did with ps3

    If it gets bumped down to the $399 price range, that'll be pretty good. The price will be higher than the Wii U, sure, but not by an unreasonable amount, especially if the hardware it's packing is more advanced.

    Well, look on the bright side - the "$599 US Dollars" bit may be left behind, but there's still time yet for Sony to tell us about GIANT ENEMY CRABS and RIIIIIIIDGE RACER!
