I've been a Playstation owner since the original PS1 (I also owned the original Xbox) but I've been also impressed with how the 360 has turned into such a great machine with good services. I was really on the fence once 2013 rolled around and was looking forward to seeing how the new consoles turned out. I'm not interested in always-online, but I can handle it. The whole idea of Kinect doesn't interest me - and I've been a very happy owner of a PS+ account for a while now. I can afford $399 AND $499 so the price isn't a huge deal to me personally - but after this E3 Sony has definitely won me over again. I DO trade in my used games, I DO hate the idea of DRM and I DO like the Dualshock over the Xbox controller. PS4 for me.

My favourite quote from a user watching the livestream:

"For $500 I can build a passable gaming rig that won't watch me masturbate on my couch."

@naru_joe93: well said. As someone whose never had a Kinect, I'm certainly not interested. I'm really intrigued about Sony's conference tonight.

THOSE EUROPEAN PRICES ARE INSANITY. $499 dollars is already imposing....but holy shit 429 GBP is ~670 dollars. That's CRAAAZY. They just completely priced themselves out of Europe...

It's funny - at first I thought $500 was REALLY high...then I realized it's basically the price of an iPad. So it's really not that high...

Still not buying it - but it's perspective.
