Post what ya think the price will be. I'm going on higher on XBone solely because of Kinect 2.0. Original Kinect still retails for $109 new by itself.

  • XBone: $599 or $299 with a 3-year contract to subscription service at $19.99 a month
  • PS4: $499 (not gonna guess a contract plan even though they did one with the Vita with att)

Hah, I'm getting €499 on that website. Even placeholder prices are shitty for the EU.

I don't see the PS4 being cheaper at the counter, unless you are adding the Xbox Live subscription fee (which don't even know how it is going to be yet).

#5 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19387 posts) -

Xbox One = $399.99

PS4 = $449.99 or $499.99

#6 Posted by Lumley (964 posts) -

Xbox One: $450 and £350 (we'll surely get fucked over on the price conversion)

If they go for a subscription model then that's great. I've had constant Xbox LIVE for 8 years so I can't see me unsubbing any time soon.

PS4: $500 and £400

#7 Edited by oraknabo (1514 posts) -

At least one PS4 SKU will be @ $430-$450.

It would be nice if MS tries to keep it similar or cheaper, but their strategy seems so anti-consumer this time around that I wouldn't even want to guess.

Also, they will probably do some kind of subscription combo thing.

#8 Edited by Winternet (8052 posts) -

Both between the range of $399-$499 and €399-€499 and £399-£499.

Sounds about right.

I cannot see Sony making the same mistake twice. PS4 $399

Approximately 2 1/4 Wii U's.

#12 Posted by fazzle (308 posts) -

$499.99 each

#13 Edited by Hunter5024 (5959 posts) -

Not including sales tax, I believe that if I walk into a store around november with $500 I will be capable of purchasing either system.

#14 Posted by kishinfoulux (2506 posts) -

PS4 will be the more expensive of the two. You'd think they learned their lesson, but I can see $599 U.S. dollars happening all over again. I'd hope none of them go over $499.

#15 Edited by Brendan (8124 posts) -

Both will be 500 Canadian, before tax. Sorry, "$499".

#16 Posted by jakob187 (21755 posts) -

Both will offer at least a $400 model. PS4 supposedly has two SKUs, and I would be willing to bet that the other SKU is $500.

Either company releasing a console for more than $400 right now would be fucking stupid.

#17 Edited by paulwade1984 (479 posts) -

Zavvi sent me an e-mail to pre-order the x-box one for only £399. I sent a nice reply telling them to fuck off. I really hope the ps4 comes in at £299 and its just the useless bloody kinect dragging the xbox up to £399

#18 Posted by Alekss (327 posts) -

so Xbone is gonna be the abreviation after all. Well, Microsoft is Xboning us all anyway, so i guess it fits...

#19 Posted by TromboneTony (162 posts) -

I don't see the Xbox being any cheaper than $500, especially with Kinect included in every box.

#20 Posted by djou (878 posts) -

@kishinfoulux: I can see the PS4 being cheaper if they don't include the camera, move, or any bells and whistles. Like $399 for a the base model with smaller HDD, then a $599 version with the accessories and 500 GB HDD.

#21 Posted by Gruebacca (570 posts) -

Both companies are shoving similar systems and peripherals into their systems. Whatever the prices will be, it'd be crazy if they weren't similar to each other. I'm guessing both will be between $400 and $550 for all SKUs. Don't expect something cheap, but don't expect 599 USD.

#22 Posted by SeanFoster (889 posts) -

Xbox One $499

PS4 $450

#23 Posted by rachelepithet (1392 posts) -

PS4 $499

MXO $499 or $299 + $24.99/month Xbox Live Platinum which includes the "used fee" (a.k.a. universal online pass) and things like EA's old cross-game Season Pass for virtual trading cards & fantasy sports.

#24 Edited by ajamafalous (12147 posts) -

PS4 Barebones $399
PS4 High-End $499

Xbox $499
Xbox $299 + subscription that's either $15 or $20 a month

I doubt the Xbox One will be cheaper. I bet they both will be around $499.99.

Edit: But then again, the ps4 will have 8 GB of GDDR5. Though I still doubt they'll go over $500.

Agreed. I would bet my left nut that both consoles will be $399. There may be some tiered pricing, but you'll be able to get one in your hands for $399.

#29 Edited by RE_Player1 (7526 posts) -

$399 base model and $449-499 for the premium sku. No system will go over $500 ever again.

#30 Edited by Nictel (2434 posts) -

$399 for ps4 (base model), $430 for xboxone.

Playstation is going to be cheaper as they are using more standard components. Where microsoft made they're own custom cpu it seems. Also that kinect is mad expensive.

#31 Posted by Zelyre (1275 posts) -

Subsidized VHXBox $249 which will require a service contract. They'll take a loss on these out the gate, but make big bucks on those monthly XBox Platinum Sports Package Sponsored by Dorittos, Do the Dew packages. $399 stock P'Xone.

$399 base PS4. $499 premium SKU.

#32 Edited by Kidavenger (3626 posts) -

Seeing how the 360 + kinect bundle is still $399, I think that the next gen consoles would have to go for more than that, I'd expect them to be $499 each, likely they will come with some form of bonus like a year of Live/PS+ and/or a game included.

#33 Edited by benpicko (2005 posts) -

For some reason I feel as though the PS4 will be cheaper

#34 Edited by Little_Socrates (5711 posts) -

$499 for both. Maybe a $399 model for PS4, maybe a $599 model for PS4.

#35 Posted by Minos (157 posts) -

$8000 mexican pesos for any console.... Jeez!!!

#36 Posted by Enigma777 (6058 posts) -

PS4 is going to be $499. Xbone is going to be a subsidized $250 or even $199.

#37 Posted by Jimbo (9983 posts) -

$450 each. ~£350-£400 in the UK.

I don't think either can afford to be 'the expensive one' this time. Now I'm not saying they'll price fix in order to avoid a mutually damaging price war, but well yeah that's probably what will happen.

#38 Edited by Bollard (5836 posts) -

Please stop saying XBone, that's awful. The capitalisation is all wrong.

#39 Posted by Oscar__Explosion (2402 posts) -

If any go higher than $499 it's going to be a tough sale.

#40 Edited by TheHBK (5563 posts) -

I am going with $499 for both.

Please stop saying XBone, that's awful. The capitalisation is all wrong.

I have an Xboner for these new systems :)

#41 Posted by Reisz (1527 posts) -

I'm going to be an outlier on this. Microsoft will only have one sku, they won't launch with a subsidised model and it will be $459.99

#42 Edited by Fredddi43 (358 posts) -

I'm thinking 399€ each, so about $450-499. And +1 on Microsoft offering a subsidised model.

#43 Posted by colorbrandon (166 posts) -

600 USD for either. All of you guys are optimistic as hell.

#44 Posted by nosebleed (15 posts) -

I think $499 for both is probably about right. While the specs on the PS4 might be slightly higher the Xbox One is coming packaged with an upgraded version of the Kinect. That camera can't be cheap.

#45 Edited by Morello (85 posts) -

The Xbox One is being advertised in the UK for preorder for £399.99 from The Hut Group (Zavvi / thehut.com).

#46 Posted by Strife777 (1612 posts) -

My question is: Do they come out the same week?

I sure hope so. It would be the most interesting.

#47 Edited by audioBusting (1672 posts) -

$700-800 for a PS4, $500-600 for an Xbox in Australia. Currently the placeholder price for both is $900.

(Guessing from the market. The Xbox is probably going to end up more or as expensive).

#48 Posted by Time_Lord (723 posts) -

Xbox One $299 I think if microsoft wants to be competitive with its glorified DVR its going to need to seriously undercut Sony in the price department. And with all the positive press Sony has I think they blink first and announce the price and date.

Playstation 4 $399 This price just seems right they could go either higher or lower depending on what they want to bundle with the box but for the base console it should not be higher than $400 and I expect them to announce it at E3.

#49 Posted by thebunnyhunter (1481 posts) -

PS4: 444.44r dollars

Xone: $399.97

I dont see them being more than $50 apart, if even that

#50 Edited by Tom_Scherschel (137 posts) -

It seems like the Xbox One will only have one SKU right? There is no way they go with the PS3's disastrous $599.99 price point, but I think that for all that hardware, with Kinect bundled in, $499 doesn't seem unreasonable. How much lower could they go if these consoles are going to be sold at a loss? Also: is the subsidized Xbox rumor definitely dead? I thought I heard that.

Sony will not fuck themselves with their pricing again. I'm betting that they wait until Microsoft announces price first, and then announce the PS4 will be the exact same price, which is exactly what they did with the Vita/3DS. Maybe if Sony has two SKUs they can get one down under $499.99, but what would they cut out? If there is a Sony Eye in one box it has to be in both, otherwise it negates the guarantee to developers that "everybody has one" and then why include it in either? If they can't take that out then what can they remove without changing what the SKUs can do? Hard drive size seems like the obvious answer but that will be more important than ever this gen (moreso if Sony follows Microsoft and doesn't let you swap them out). So, for "the good one"

Xbox One: $499.99

PlayStation 4: $499.99

I firmly believe they cannot cost more than that. Maybe with subsidizing or reduced features either one could offer a second model at less than that.


Not that this is very scientific or anything, but the original Xbox launched at $299.99 and the Xbox 360 launched at $399.99 so the Xbox One launching at $499.99 would fall into a pattern. The PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 (lower-end SKU) fits the same pattern. Also, that pricing increase just about keeps up with inflation; what cost $399.99 in 2005 would cost $465.11 in 2012 (the inflation calculator only runs up to 2012).
