Yeah you're right. PS2 games were $50, PS3 games $60-70 & sometimes more. Now PS4 games $80-90 and the collector edition probably more than $200 lol.

i wish ps3 games were only $60us in aus. they are like $90 in aus and thats like $95 to $100 us atm. i hope they cost the same all around the world. its ridiculous i can buy a game shipped from england or usa to my door for up to half price of me getting it from psn store or local shop.

and whats even stupider is i can make a us acc on my ps3 and buy the same psn game for half price in us store than eu store. sony has got to be the biggest dog act around.

nothing like knowing youre being ripped off. mmm thanks sony... more please but anyways i heard the ps4 may cost $1000 in aus at launch. i'll still buy it 1st day (or new xbox) but it really annoys me thinking aus are stupid or whatever excuse they give.

$428 in USD? Yeah I'm pretty sure that's not the final price for the USA version. It will cost more than that here in the USA. I payed $600 for the PS3 when it came out. So.. yeah.

Now, PS2 games were like $50, PS3 games $60-70 and sometimes more lol. If PS4 games go higher than $70 I'm not going to bother with it at all and just build my self a gaming pc. At least i hope that they continue with the playstation plus features. Hoping that Sony also puts out something to stop the kiddos from playing matures games. Seriously...

Will the controllers stay the same? I really hope they do.

I'm sure they will be expensive at first. Then like all consoles and games they will drop. You know the price of the game depends on how much work went into creating it. I would not be shocked if they make 3D TV games. I could see them costing $60 per title

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.

To quote from (linked above): "The publication writes today that the PS4 will feature Gaikai cloud tech and will offer special social elements in which you can discuss things with friends while playing games.

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.

40,000 yen may not mean much to consumers overseas. Converting between currencies, that would be about $428 in USD and roughly 317 Euros.

Two things to keep in mind: 1) Asahi says Sony’s new home console will cost more than 40,000 yen and 2) prices tend to see adjustments in different territories rather than straight conversions.

And of course, Asahi’s report should only be treated as speculation for now."
