I expect an insanely expensive high end machine with a weak library of games.

We’re supposed to learn “things” about the next Playstation today, but as the Playstation 3 has largely become the “exclusives box” the Gamecube once was in my house, Ni No Kuni has been teaching me plenty about the existing hardware that I’m ready to do away with.

Controllers that frequently lose their connections or lack removable batteries are not a “thing.”  Frequent updates without even a pretense of feature additions aren’t a “thing.”  I could pay them to update it for me, but the other option is that I could not do that, and that’s the one I’m gonna go with.  Hamstrung online services in game, limited chat and invite options, and nonexistent party functions aren’t 2013, let alone the previous years.  Outside of the prodigious and brilliant work of its wholly owned subsidiaries, the console never got any better.  It never had anything approaching “Xbox Live, but free.”  The Playstation Move didn’t.  Maybe now that we’re getting a successor, people can say true things about the existing system without hurting them fee-fees

I do love Tycho's wordsmithery at times! XD

Huh? I'm still watching. Right now they're talking about UStreaming whatever you're playing from your PS4.

I'm seeing some stuff regarding cloud and No Native PS3 BC.

But the sound keeps [tornado fang]ing leaving.

Okay, new Killzone game announcement, don't care, not my cup of tea but I know the series has fans. I just wish I knew more about what the [tornado fang] was going on regarding the BC because the sound was being an archdouche during that time and I missed out on most of that part of the announcement.

Okay, I'm still laughing at the FF guy's presentation, simply telling us to watch E3 for a new FF game. You know, just in case anyone watching this event actually forgot to watch E3.

I really hope the E3 announcement isn't FFXV or some iteration of XIV. Sqaure has been stalling with Versus XIII long enough, and I have a suspicion that it's been pushed to the PS4.

Noooooooooope. No system showing. Also, no price announcement, which essentially GUARANTEES it's $500 or more.

I dunno, from people I talked to I don't think anybody was expecting a price announcement already, so that doesn't guarantee $500 o.o

I hope it's not $500+, cause I think it'll reaaaaally hurt Sony. I honestly wasn't expecting a price announcement either, cause I don't have much faith in Sony's PR lately. For all I know they might not know the price of the thing yet. But it's still the most important and relevant thing for the PS4 after the PS3's opening price debacle. The only way I think they would've announced the price is if it was only $400, because it would've had everyone's gaming panties in a bunch.

With this powerful tech and Sony's greediness, I'm fully expecting AT LEAST $500. I mean, $400 for a system like this would seem like flushing money down the toilet. With games like
Deep Down
, the PS4 seems highly unlikely to be less than $500. Nintendo would probably go for $400, but not Sony.

We'll see.

I have no real insight on how these things, but I would assume they don't have a price for it yet.  They probably wanna feel it out first, I would have to guess that half of the price is made up to make a profit from making them and the other half is public opinion?  If it seems like the opinion is good they could go for more, and visa versa.  If I had to take a guess I think they'll try and get as close to $300-$400 as they can.  Wii U was what, $250?  They gotta stay close to that.
