Source: Sony "Unlikely" To Reveal Exact Date And Price For PS4
It seems Sony might not be laying all their cards on the table tomorrow.
Although it has become an accepted fact that Sony will announce the PlayStation 4 at a special PlayStation Meeting tomorrow evening, The Times reports that the company probably won't specify an exact launch date or price.
This is because they expect Sony to wait for Microsoft's new Xbox announcement before solidifying that information. Basically, Sony just wants to see what the competition will do before making any decisions. However, that being said, The Times does say the PS4 will be priced at "about £300," which translates to around $464. For the record, that's much cheaper than the PS3, which launched in the UK for £425. Many are anticipating a retail cost of around $500, and a Japanese source found evidence to support an approximate $499 price tag. And I say that's more than reasonable.
At this rate, it does seem inevitable that the PS4 will be significantly cheaper than the PS3 out of the gate. Given nearly seven years of inflation and better technology, does that concern anyone...?
