Japanese newspaper Asahi has speculated the price of Sony’s upcoming Playstation 4 console. Of course this is just a rumor and a guess, but it’s coming from the Japanese press, so maybe it’s sources and reasoning are bit closer to home.
Check out the translation of the article we found on Gematsu….
“Yesterday (on February 6), it became clear that Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) will reveal it’s new game system, PlayStation 4, which will release within the year. This is the first new model since PS3 was released in 2006, and it’s expected that there will be a rush to meet year-end sales demands between Japan and America. The price is expected to exceed 40,000 yen.”
According to Google, 40,000 Japanese Yen is equivalent to about $427 USD. So, if they’re predicting that it will be more, then it could be in the $450 to $500 USD range. Rumors also lead to the PS4 release date being some time towards the end of 2013.
