PS4 will likely be cheaper than PS3 launch

by William Schwartz


Sony’s PS4 is set to arrive this holiday season, and it could come in cheaper than expected. Recent comments from Sony suggest that the new hardware will be more competitively priced than the PS3 was at launch.

Speaking with EDGE, Sony’s Michael Denny explained that the company may have learned a serious lesson with the PlayStation 3 launch.

“We listen and learn and take the judgement from every console launch we ever have and we have to be in formed by what the strengths of our PlayStation 3 system have been, but also the challenges… We want a system that can reach as broad a gaming audience as possible but whilst being a system that’s deep, connected, rich and immersive and is going to give a very focused and differentiated experience than anything else that’s out there.”

Sony has yet to reveal the pricing of the PlayStation 4 or what it looks like. However, the company is rumored to be holding a second reveal of the new hardware, after a February announcement of the PlayStation 4 targeted holiday 2013 for the launch of their fourth console.
