PS4 to come in three flavours, priced up to $599 – rumour

Monday, 10th June 2013 21:50 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ahead of Sony’s press conference late today, whispers suggest the PlayStation 4 will launch with three different models, and the most expensive of these will be $599.

The rumour comes via GamesIndustry, which cited an anonymous source and said it expects confirmation at the Sony presser.

The source did not give details on what the difference between the three models will be, but said Sony is going to push 4K resolution as a stepping stone on the way to glasses free 3D>

As for the other models, the lowest may be as cheap as $399.

Microsoft priced the Xbox One at $499 during its E3 press conference today. We’re interested in what you think of that.

The PlayStation 3′s $599 launch price is considered a misstep historically, and Sony has gone on record multiple times saying its has learned from that mistake. Keep your eyes locked here during Sony’s presser at 6:00 PM PST.

    $599. i edited but for some reason VG didn’t updated for me…

    @4, 399 is acceptable for me, just, let say 160GB harddive, all i need..
    No need to buy a 599 with 2TB hardrive, if that thing have a YLOD, all ya saves you can kiss that goodbye, i rather hooked up 2TB with partitions Externe harddrive and put all the junk on that drive, at least not lost… even the save games are “SAFE”…. for less that 100 bucks at wally world…

    Guessing the $599 will be a Vita bundle, in which case it won’t be so bad.

    @2 You didn’t read the whole article did you? It says 599 it’s the most expensive version, the cheapest is 399. Also, rumour.

    I suppose if true it would depend on the package.
    IE bigger hd I suppose or maybe some other features.
    Seems a bit pricey.

    I’m guessing the extra option will be the Vita.

    Considering how much they’re trying to push the Vita/PS4 interconnectivity AND how they’ve been kinda lax on the Vita, that’d be a great deal for them to try to pull off.

    Now, the regular vanilla, no-Vita PS4, though, should cost no more than $400.

    The 599 vita bundle would be some good skills right there…

    No harm in doing it, especially if there’s a cheaper option available too!

    599 is not that much. 8 years ago sure. My shit Windows phone cost more :/ I do hope it comes with a big drive though.

    Hopefully that will equate to being a hundred pounds cheaper than Xbox one. Then it will be a no brainer.

    I hope there is a way to insert a new harddrive instead that bulky 2TB, 5200RPM FAT32, and re-install with a WD Raptor 150GB 10.000RPM, and cut the loading time in half….

    The only way I see Sony hitting $400, is without the PS Eye bundled, and/or reveal a system with slightly less features.

    Well, it won’t be much longer before we know for sure.

    399 is a good price, and if the 599 one is really a comes with vita bundle, then that it NOT expensive and I can see it pushing vita numbers up considerably.

    for 599 I expect (PS4+Vita+a game) or (Ps4+vita+PS sub for 1 month).
