80w ago - In a recent interview with CNBC (linked above), Sony CEO Jack Tretton has confirmed PS4 / PlayStation 4 video game pricing as ranging from $0.99 to $60 with demos available as well.

Below are the details, to quote: "On pricing, Tretton said that the PS4 is "designed with the game developer in mind and the consumer in mind," and will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range with the ability for players to sample games before they buy.

"I think people are willing to pay if they see the value there," he said. "The heat for the true gamer is on the console."

He said that games on mobile devices are "additive experiences" and that gamers won't "migrate down the food chain" for their primary gaming experience."

To quote: Today during a roundtable discussion with the president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, news about the role of PlayStation 3’s two controllers – DualShock 3 and PlayStation Move – were revealed in terms of their functionality with PlayStation 4.

In short: DualShock 3 won’t work with PlayStation 4, but PlayStation Move will. “No, [PS4] doesn’t support DualShock 3,” noted Yoshida, “but it does support PS Move.”

I agree with staying away from launch model...besides i dont see anything really too groundbreaking in this new model other than the controller changes...it will be interesting to see how the games are in comparison. Right now i love my PS3 and that it is an "All in one" type of unit.

Is it not having old CD compatibility really that bad? You can pretty much buy some antique to rip'em for like 10 bucks, why would someone spend 300+ on a CONSOLE to rip cds?...

So basically Sony is going to make you have to pay just to rip your own audio CD's on your PS4. Now I'm really concerned upon what the full picture will be for PS4 by the time this system reaches release.

This may not be a big deal to others but it is to me since its a feature I've always appreciated. So far the way its looking, players will be still using their PS3's during the PS4's lifecycle just for features that were taken away or charged a certain fee to utilize on the new console.
