I'd Pay $1,000 For A PS4 With MGS5, GT6, And Uncharted 4
The cost of a new piece of hardware is critical. The $600 PlayStation 3 was a mistake according to many.
So a friend and I were talking today, and we were wondering what the PS4 might debut at; will we be looking at $500? And how much will the games be? Then came the question- "What would make you pay $1,000 on launch day?" Well, I decided that although it might be a stretch, I might fork over that amount for Sony's new console and a ridiculous Godly launch lineup of epic proportions that consisted of Metal Gear Solid 5, Gran Turismo 6, and Uncharted 4.
It's just a fun conversation; I'm not even sure I'd pay a grand for that, but I would definitely consider it. Right now, the interesting part about the PS4 isn't so much the machine, but the potential software that might arrive with it. The timing seems about right to see some amazing new franchise entries, like the ones mentioned above along with Killzone 4, LittleBigPlanet 3, and...uh...Final Fantasy XV. Okay, the latter wouldn't be exclusive to the PS4 and I've been at odds with Square Enix this entire generation, but the name "Final Fantasy" still has this sick hold on me.
So what would you pay $1,000 for when the PS4 arrives? What would have to come with it? Oh, that reminds me- They'd have to throw in an extra controller and an HDMI cable. The fact that the latter doesn't come with the PS3 is completely absurd.
