EB Games Australia has opened pre-orders for the PlayStation 4 at $899, which is about £600/€700/¥86,000. Australian prices tend to be quite a bit higher than international price points after currency conversion. For comparison, the 60GB PlayStation 3 originally launched at $999 in Australia, which is now worth about £670/€780/¥96,000, but the PS3 actually retailed at £425/€599/¥59,980 in respective territories. In any case, it’s just an estimate at this stage.
