PS4 Has Upgradeable 500GB Hard Drive, Dual Shock 4 Priced

More important details continue to arrive from E3 2013, and the PlayStation 4 continues to look better and better.

It has been confirmed that Sony's new console will ship with a 500GB hard drive and as boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed via Twitter, it will be upgradeable, just like it is in the PS3. That's good news.

Furthermore, we've learned that the PlayStation Eye will not be included with the PS4; it will be sold separately with a price tag of $60. Microsoft's Xbox One will sell for $100 more but it does come with Kinect, although the latter is basically a requirement. Next up is the price of the Dual Shock 4, which comes in at $60 as well. Considering that the current Dual Shock 3 for PS3 retails for $55, that really isn't a bad deal at all. You will want that second controller, too.

Personally, I still want to see a bundle option that includes the Eye, a second controller, one free year of Plus, and a game for like $550 or something. It just sucks that they never do bundles when a system first launches; it's always bare-bones.

Nice. ANd thank you Sony for not forcing us to buy something most gamers don't care for. Man, MS is so owned this gen it's sick. They have every negative in the book. More expensive. Less powerful. Horrible DRM+online connectivity requirements (did they not see user ratings on Amazon for EA's forced online DRM games? GAMERS HATE IT), and last but not least Kinect is forced upon so many gamers who just don't want it. This pretty much goes down in history as the worst console successor in history as far as I'm concerned. I don't think I've ever seen such a hated follow up to a popular platform.

As long as I can get a pink Dual Shock 4, I'll be just fine. :)

Preordered mine on Amazon as soon as Sony announced the price. I was getting it anyway, but, you can't preorder until Amazon has a price.
$399 was a very happy surprise.
And yes, preordered Xbox One as well, damn Forza.

Gamestop has bundles that can be preordered BUT they aren't actual deals. All they do is charge full price for every item and are selling it together. For instance, a PS4, game, and extra controller for $520

One of the most important things to me is warranty but so far only Amazon is offering a 2 year warranty. I'm going to hold off on my preorder until I see what BestBuy has to offer or Walmart.

Just a tad, but since it looked like it would run just fine on an old system I don't see how it can be a next gen game. Also I don't think kids these days have the chops for what it takes to make those 80 hit combos so it might not even sell well.

I still have my memories kicking ass with Fulgore and watching Orchid's hard plastic boobs bounce :)

also to add that I remember figuring out some of the characters ultra combos by myself.

Also, the fact that it's F2P with only 1 character almost makes me not care for it anymore. It did however also bring back some childhood memories.

I wish they would sell a sku with no hard drive. I have a brand new tera and 2 terabyte hard drive just waiting...

Wow.. Sony did EXACTLY what I wanted.. more powerful hardware... at a cheaper price.. last prong is to release sooner than the XB1! Unlikely but if they could it would be a perfect storm of competitiveness!

I would be surprised if they released sooner. I wish they would though. Sounds like Sony is going to have a huge amount of PS4s available at launch. I am guessing they will need more time than normal to manufacture the load.

Hopefully Sony allows over 9.5mm size HDD. 12.5mm 3.5" would nice as we could then get a 1-4TB drive installed.

I know I will be getting a huge HDD right out of the starting gates for my PS4. Right now the PS3 only allows 9.5mm 2.5" unless you remove the HDD carriage.

Also, it's important to remember that 7200rpm drives are the way to go. They offer faster installations and some noticeable differences in gameplay. Rage is a great example of this. Some of the 7200rpm drives give out less heat than the 5400rpm drives. You just have to find the right drive. I have also seen the Velociraptor 10000 gives out the least amount of heat if you can afford it. However, their size isn't big enough for my PS+ needs.

If you remove the HDD carriage, you can swap from the 2.5" pre-installed to 3.5" desktop size HDD's?

Sweet. When the PS4 is out, Sony should consider dropping the prices on the Dualshock 3's.

Well lets not forget about the PS+ requirement to play online. They will have to have better and more dedicated servers to justify that move. Lag issues and drop outs are more prevalent on the ps3 than the 360.

@PS3_Wizard,

Bring me some proof of your claim.

I haven't had lag or drop-out issues on PSN since 2007, with the rare exception of playing MAG, but servers hosting 256 players on a single map is an insane requirement to begin with.

And those problems on MAG were mostly right after launch, and I had little trouble thereafter.

I pre-ordered my PS4 as soon as Amazon started accepting orders. Last generation I ordered all consoles....I cant justify that same need this time around. every-time i turn around i find out something more that ups the value to the PS4

so once you level the playing field, the xbox one is actually cheaper here.
not surprised, $ony always rips us through the nose which is exactly why ill be importing mine!
as for the HDD, is that all?
i bought a 1TB HDD a few weeks ago for 60 bucks for f*cks sake!
most ps3 games are now what, 30GB?
ps4 games will be what, average 50?
so install 10 games and thats it, consoles full.
genius!
after paying 450 bucks for a console, you should be getting a dam side more than 500GBs!

That's all you are getting with the Xbone, genius.

And you can swap the hdd out for a bigger one in the PS4, but not the Xbone, so quit your b*tching.
