Are all of them made in china now? I think I saw an article before the ps4 launch that stated that it will be manufactured in china AND japan, wondering if any of you guys got one.

edit: well I learned that europeans get the made in japan ps4 and americans get the made in china....damn I really wanted the made in japan version, but europeans have to pay almost $200 more for it. oh well

Nice user name. Just a question, why would you want a ps4 if it has "No games"

@marcheegsr: because all the games I wanted got delayed and I was pissed off about not having anything to play.

Maybe that's why most of the failures of the PS4 have been in America, sucks to be in America for once, you don't get to say that often when it comes to gaming.

I'm hoping the only difference is that the japans factory makes the euro power cords and such, but from experience the japanese factory workers are better treated and they take much more pride in their work so they usually produce higher quality products. Maybe its just assembled in japan?

Wait, so the US gets "Made in China" while the rest of the world gets "Made in Japan", that's awesome lol, what about Canada? maybe that's the real reason as to why the PS4 is cheaper there, minimum wage is higher in Japan.

Was it the same with the PS3s? Like is there an actual way of checking to see where they were made, does it say it anywhere on the console?

@BattleSpectre: on the back or bottom of the console there is a small "Made in...."

Not all PS4's being sold in Europe are made in Japan.

What is the difference between PS4's made in Japan and those made anywhere else?
