29w ago - Today GamingBolt.com (linked above) reports that Sony India's Web site has apparently leaked the rumored PlayStation 4 / PS4 250 GB SKU retail pricing with details below.
To quote: "Sony India apparently updated (now removed) their Web site to reveal the pricing for the upcoming next generation PlayStation 4 console. It listed the console along with a 250 GB hard disk drive as retailing for 399 Euros.
Of course, a while later, they realized their slip up and proceeded to delete the information. Not before other sites could latch on to the info however (thanks NeoGAF), and report on it.
As it stands, this would validate rumours that the PlayStation 4 would be retailing for $400 to $500 dollars (with 399 Euros roughly translating into $513). While we doubt that the price in the United States would be that much, we'd be surprised if Sony priced the console lower than $400.
Of course, this hasn't been officially announced by Sony worldwide - and they would at least use a platform like E3 2013 to announce the price of the device. So remain skeptical. It could very well have been a complete slip-up or just something completely wrong that couldn't be removed quick enough."
311w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) has announced its itention to capitlize on the growing popularity of gaming in India.
A Sony spokesperson commented that the Indian games market is expected to grow by 78 percent by 2010 and barely one percent of its gaming potential has been reached. Therefore Sony is aiming to increase its penetration in the top 20 cities of India.
To quote: "The Indian gaming market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 78 per cent by 2010, and barely one per cent of the country's gaming potential has been tapped," said Atindriya Bose, country manager (PlayStation) for Sony Computer Entertainment. " However, we are still at a very nascent stage, even though there is a lot of potential for the industry," he added.
The vendor is aiming to increase its penetration in the top 20 cities of the country by selecting partners on the basis of their sales potential as well as their capability of selling entertainment products. " We are looking forward to have a phase wise distribution pattern, and hence aiming to have around 3-4 quality product centers in these cities," said Bose.
