At first I was on the fence about whether or not to get the PS4... I can now gladly say I will be pre-ordering one as soon as I can.

PS4 = DAY 1 BUY damn what a steal for £349 and the fact it supports used games and dont need to connect online all the time. Microsoft go home your drunk and you are well and truly fucked.

€399 = $670NZD... I'll put a $100 bet on the fact that it'll be at least $1000NZD at release... Microsoft isn't the only one around here that gets boned on a regular basis by Sony

Can't believe insomniac jumped ship an went with xbox that sunset overdrive looked pretty good an would have bought it on ps4.

A great night for Sony. $399, a partnership with the hottest girl on the block in Destiny and no DRM. While we now have to pay to play online, you'll get all the perks of PS+ with it.

Game over, Microsoft.

did anyone else notice when he mention that ps plus was carrying over that you with enjoy online muiltplayer but when he mentioned if you dont have you will still enjoy a single player game, no mention of online. does this mean you need a plus member ship to play online?

I'm so excited for this!!! It's a good price point for me (a close-to-broke college student) and from what I've seen, has a lot of good games! I was so worried Sony might fuck it up since Microsoft had an amazing conference, but after what looked like a rough start, they pulled ahead with some indie games, great-looking exclusives, and finally telling their policies on used games! I think PS4 has won E3 (barely, honestly) and I'm excited for my future PS4!!!

wasn't 349 quid how much a PS3 cost on day of launch?

I'll probably be skint when PS4 comes out, and therefore won't be getting one... unless Sony realise that it should (and could) be backwards compitible, and when that happens I'll ride to Game on my flying pet pig to buy one on launch.

I buy PS+ anyway it is well worth it i think so that doesn't bother me, plus with the extra money the PSN will improve. I said the PS4 would be £349.99 in one of my posts, yahhh for Sony. Bye bye Microsoft you should not try and screw your customers.

This is good news! I'm so happy my broke ass can finally get a system on day 1 :) Why didn't they do this with the PS3 or Xbox 360 in the past? It seem like we are getting more stuff in these system which should equal more on the price tag.. Anyways, I'm glad !

Just signed up a few minutes ago and I must say, it feels good to be home :] I have been a microsoft gamer since day one of the original xbox and thanks to the xboner, I will be supporting sony and the ps4. I feel like a man who just got out of a relationship with a cheating wife. I am looking to something new, something better, and something satisfying. I'm not too crazy about the playstation analog sticks but if that is the worst i have to deal with, I will be a happy customer. Eat a bowl of balls ms, you suck. Welcome to the family sony, we missed you.

To be honest, when I saw the PS4 up for pre-order on Amazon for £599.99 it was still a Day 1 purchase for me. Just a bonus that the official price is way cheaper.

nice to see it's cheaper than the xbone, but i'm still most likely going to wait until the first price drop. I have quite a few games left to finish/try out on PS3 and although the PS4 isn't as expensive as the xbone £349 is still a huge chunk of money to put down for a console. A few months would also give sony time to iron out any problems that show up early on. :)

What's with the exchange rate. I know certain things cost more but $399 is £257. The Euro is £339. If it was that price the US I would buy one solely for myself and one for the kids. It always seems wrong that it works out cheaper for the US. God only knows how Oceania are going to get shafted. On the other hand, fantastic news all round. I was impressed with the £349 and it is what I hoped (easier to convince the wife now). Also preowned ftw.

I find it really strange that Microsoft would charge so much for the machine. Sony did that with the PS3 and it backfired big time, which is likely one of the reasons they decided to go way cheaper this time around. I´m really happy with the price of the PS4. At this point I can´t justify not buying a PS4 anymore haha

I am a fan of both Xbox and Playstation, but I am definitely feeling the Sony love here. Looks like I will be picking up a PS4 over a Xbox One when it releases. That is a great price for release.

Well, I have a 360 and will continue to do so because it is a good console, but MS have really shown their colours of late (Sony capitalised on it impressively) so I will head back to Sony for the next gen.
