PlayStation 4 is said to cost over 40,000 yen as seen from major Japanese news publishers like Asahi Shimbun and Nikkei. According to Asahi the PS4 will be released with a price tag of over 40,000 yen in Japan, which is lower than the original price of the PS3 (50,000 yen) for the 20GB model.
In addition to the report, both publications also mention that the new console’s controller is going to retain the same shape as its PlayStation 3 counterpart, but will have a touchpad built into it as well.
The PS4 is said to be available in Japan and the U.S. before the end of the year. We will know this February 20!
40,000 yen seems pretty costly. This means the new PS4 model will probably cost as expensive as the old PS3 model… Current PS3 models are so cheap that its like half of what I bought initially T_T.
