February 7, 2013 // 12:42 am - Following up on the previous Sony PlayStation 4 rumors, today a well-known Japanese newspaper is reporting that the PS4 (Orbis) is rumored to cost 40,000 Yen (around $430 / £300) and arrive in Japan and North America this year alongside some additional rumors from Nikkei below.

Asahi, a well-known newspaper in Japan, is reporting that the next PlayStation will cost more than 40,000 yen. The publication also adds to previous speculation that the console will be made available this year in North America and Japan.

According to a recently uncovered Sony patent, it appears they are planning to implement a new form of interactive advertising in their next-generation PS4 / PlayStation 4 gaming console.

Below are the details from (linked above), to quote: "SCEA is going next gen even with advertisements. Discovered just before PS4's imminent announcement, this new Sony patent shows new motion tech which allows you to interact with the advertisement.

This new form of marketing allows users to speed up the time of the ad by collaborating with it to complete virtual food orders; think Burger King.

The patent also seem to have a ton of social inter-connectivity as rumored that PS4 would sport large amounts of integration with the social networking universe. Check it out for yourself."

Every indication I've seen - including the value of the parts they're using - puts the PS4 at cheaper than these predictions. If it's more than $400 in America I will be greatly suprised.

The price will be highter Only Sony's phone will be able to control the PS4. It will be a flop, people don't have money to waste in this shit while PS3 is perfectly fine.

They talk to add "cloud gaming" on PS4 like it requires a new hardware to work. ID DOESN'T. They will probably force you to always connect ps4 to internet as anti piracy measure
They still insist that PS2 games are not compatible with PS3 hardware, Flatz ( has developed a way to play all PS2 games on non-BC console.
