I was literally p*****g myself when they revealed the price, especially considering they totally gave Microsoft the D with the pre-owned games and always online bs.

It's strange. It seems like all SONY had to do was allow Microsoft to implement an immensely unpopular system for their upcoming console, then announce that they will not adopt it as well.

Also, the price being £350 is pretty good for the customer. If the reports of it having more clout under the hood are true then paying less for something more is definitely a winning situation.

Question is, what now Microsoft?

MS got massacred at E3. After it started quite well too.

Really beyond the new decent looking exclusives, everything else was a big negative, especially (considering the economic climate) price & DRM.

I think it'll be back to the drawing board for them now.

The only negative was PS+ for online play - if you're into that sort of thing. But given that you need Xbox Live Gold to do it, hey it's not too bad and there's loads of other benefits to PS= too.

£80 for the kinect basically

I'm cool with price on both tbh, its a launch price after all

MS will drop DRM thing, no way are they going to stand for EA slapping a price on trading when on the PS4 it will be same. Sony obvo saw the MS backlash and decided to pull the plug

As far as I was aware PS4 and the X1 both were running the DRM idea and then after X1 announced Sony just never mentioned it again. MS need to backtrack out of the DRM and the only way they can save the sales would be to scrap the kinect and offer up a cheaper X1 for £325 without kinect.

ERM NO, it's all about the games as the Sony fanboys tell us and MS killed Sony with their lineup, Sony couldn't manage hardly anything other than taking up all their time with multiformat titles.

You mean "THE HUGE NEGATIVE" for the PS4 is that you have to pay a sub to play a game online PSN is no longer free.(This will affect the decision of millions of potential PS4 customers)

So what games are going to be PS4 PSN+ compatible I bet it's 99.9% indie games.

As for price Sony hyped up their motion controller gamepad and forgot to tell you it's another £50 for the camera to be able to use it's capability.
