Just a rumour for now, but damn if proven true it would be a ginormous mistake.

Any price they chose is no problem for me.

I will be getting the PS4 from the USA, just like I did with the PS3 and NextBox on day 1!

Cannot wait!

Is including Windows 8 a good thing? Maybe the "always On" thing is just for that(PC-DRM), or maybe it's for another feature we haven't heard of yet(like cloud streaming, or something). Also, MS would be barking mad if they chose to launch at too high a price, other than a hardcore few, most of us have to watch what we spend, and a new console is not a priority... :|

If the pricing is correct then its a "back door" way of getting people hooked into subscriptions. Can't afford the stand alone price ? Here, have a contract. :D

Aside from this online thing, the number one concern I've gotten from people is 'what does it look like?' Who gives a s**t?"



If it looks like i piece of s**t, then i will give a s**t as i don't really want s**t sitting on my gaming shelve :D

A well priced subscription model may not be a bad idea, if Sony and Microsoft release at the same time then a lower priced model may swing a lot of buyers :|

Well at least with this the law of averages means the next rumour will surely be a positive one!
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

It is all rumour of course, but it just seems like Microsoft are building a console for which they think we should be grateful.

I hope I'm wrong. I love my Xbox 360.

Any why not be grateful? Their console features the best games ever made...

If you think the PS4 will be much cheaper, then clearly you are deluded.
