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 (twitter.com/oct0xor/status/299114635880189952) has developed a way to play all PS2 games on non-BC console.
