Japanese media sources Asahi Shimbun and the nikkei are claiming price and cloud gaming news for Sony's forthcoming PS4 today.
It seems from the former
that Sony is eschewing notions of worldwide economic depression (and also its own recent horrible gaming earnings decline
) and pricing the new unit at 40,000 yen (around $426, which is terrifyingly similar to the launch cost of the PS3.) We'd expect to see this in the UK as a $=£ cost rather than the £270 that a direct yen-to-pound should be.
has done some translation and also points out that the Nikkei
states: " the PS4 will apparently use cloud technology from Gaikai, the gaming service that Sony bought for $380 million last year."
£425? Too much? Tell us in the Forum
