By now, we’re getting ready for a next generation where we can finally be accused of being Playstation fanboys for a change. Ha! Progress. I’ve got a credit card and I’m not afraid to use it, but even if this turns out to be RRP, then the Playstation 4 is going to be more expensive than I imagined.
Phoenix-Tech has what we can guesstimate is a very, very presumptive price on the Playstation 4, or Playsation 4 as they call it. Purchase it from them, and you’ll be parting with 6599 Randelas ($691/ £457) .
That’s a ton of cash, and pretty close to what the original Playstation 3 cost when it was launched several years ago on this side of globe. Of course, this could also be a case of jumping on the bandwagon and snagging in some easy first-time adopters.
It’s unclear yet if Sony plans to launch the PS4 in line with other market trends, much like Microsoft did with the premium and core Xbox 360 models, or Nintendo and the Deluxe and standard Wii U versions that were on offer last year.
It’s also uncertain if the Playstation 4 will launch with a tube of complimentary Vaseline, but until we hear from the suppliers, take this with a pinch of salt. Thanks to Uberutang for the links.
