That mockup looks great! God, I can't wait for the next gen consoles to get here already!

And the burning question everybody will surely want answering - Does it come in red? any other colour will throw my decor right off.
Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes.

price, will determine how much I am allowed to care right away.

If the system is in the 300 range. I can manage. Anything above 400 and I will have to wait until christmas

I'll wait and see on this one. With so little time to play games these days, all I'm worried about at the moment is getting my Wii U on Nov 30th.
On a little side note; if the dev kits have 8GB RAM, expect to see 4GB in the final machine. Still a decent amount as long as there's decent HDD or additional RAM disc caching (imagine how long it'll take to fill 4GB at 22.5MB/sec, for example. Installs could become mandatory, so will we see SATA3 support?)

If the specs in this article are accurate (and I believe they are) then I'm definitely expecting £300+

Or keep playing all the good games out now and coming out and wait until they both drop in price £100 after a year and get some better games out. It's a fair big investment so no point rushing in on brand loyalty.

I distrust patriotism; the reasonable man can find little in these days that is worth dying for. But dying against - there's enough iniquity in Europe to carry the most urbane or decadent into battle.

I usually hit launches up. I even hit it up for the 600 ps3. But if 2 systems come out next christmas at lets say 4-500 dollars each?

I might have to wait on one

The mockup looks kinda cool, although rather a lot like my printer. Just open the lid and start scanning your documents...

8GBs of RAM would be dreamy. "Only" 4 would of course still represent an almost tenfold increase over the current gen.
