84w 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."

In related PlayStation 4 news today, [Register or Login to view links] reports that PS4 supports PS Move, but not the DualShock 3 controller.

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.”

Update: [Register or Login to view links] has also discovered (pictured below) within the Ubisoft Web site source code that the special editions for the next-generation versions of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will fall in line with the pricing of the current-generation versions, £119.99, with the PC version getting the mandatory £10 reduction as is standard with PC titles.

I'm sorry, but If there is anything this last gen has taught us is to stay away from launch model... Or you're forgetting about those random YLOD or RSOD? Not sure, but you're referring to PS3 Fat with BC? The PS2 emulation was poorly done, the YLOD risk just isn't worth It.

I'll be getting a launch model, because usually those models are the ones that get the bells and whistles, and are first to have working hacks/exploits.

I know how you fell, I had exactly the same thoughts with the last generation until I bought a PS3 two years ago and got into it again, but now I want a PS4 so badly since Sony is focusing on Software again (or so it seems due to the mass presence of developers in the conference and the X86 architecture).

BTW, I also owned every console since VCS 2600 and Intellivision! Unfortunately, my daughter have no interest in games if they aren't for IOS. Ahhh maybe I'm too much of "Old School" to know when give up!

Stan, which Wii U games?

Anyway, It's a mistake to rush into consoles, specially after all those YLOD and RLOD before. Also, If you want to buy something from Sony, It's always better to wait for the inevitable Slim version. I actually plan on giving It a year or two before buying It.
