Default PS4 - otherwise known as "Fuck you Microsoft"

PlayStation 4 is £349 this Christmas ? ?no restrictions on used games? | Metro News

Details revealed at e3 include:

- Price - 349 pounds (cheaper than Xbox 1)
- Christmas release apparently
- Not online only (nor does it need to be connected every 24 hours to work)
- Sony doesn't put any restrictions on resale of games (no saying that producers won't though).

Fucking hell I might actually buy this rather than waiting 4 years like every other console because the price is actually affordable.

Well given how Microsoft managed to one up Sony last time, this was bound to happen I suppose.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

This isn't just a one up for Sony. This is a complete slaughter of the Xbox

Microsoft, you had "One" job!

Abso-fucking-lutely glorious. Microsoft just got caught in its own Red Wedding.

$100 cheaper, no "cut off your games if you haven't checked in online in 24 hours," no DRM, massive indie support—this is practically a coup de grace against Microsoft. I look forward to seeing this week's scrambling damage control. In the meanwhile, it looks like the Xbone... Is Xboned.

(YEAAAAAAAAH)

I wouldn't call it a slam dunk until the consoles actually hit the market. Right now this is like politicians on the campaign trail promising the moon to be elected.

Good thing they focused their entire first showing of the box on it's prime function; Watching TV!

Because you know, you couldn't do that before.... On your TV...

my wife watched the announcement live from E3(my wife is gamer), she was very impressed with what sony had to say, plus they announced two of her favorite games getting ps4 exclusivity in Kingdom hearts 3 and final fantsy 14, plus shes hoping for alot of integration with smart phones and the vita.
But best of all was the price, £350 in the UK from the off is great, dont need to start searching for the best deal just to afford it at launch, im perfectly happy to buy it at full RRP and buy an extra controller and still come in under £400.Not too bothered about the trade in and passing on games stuff to be honest, we dont tend to buy second hand or trade(unless the game was utter shite), but its nice to have the option to do with what i want with the thing i have bought.

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON
