Yep, but to be honest I bet it's gonna be pretty expensive. At least $750 if I have to guess.

Whelp. If true, it's almost as ****Ing ridiculous as the PS3's $999 price tag here when it was launched. And the irony is most of those TV TV TV TV TV features will be useless here.

It sucks, but there's reason for it. Shipping expenses, low population and high average wage. Some stuff is better priced here, some stuff is outrageous.

Im expecting M$ to hide the price the price of the system behind some contracts and such. I wouldnt blame them tho, looking at XboxJuan and the QUAD, they look like they'll be $600. So it would be wise for both M$ and SONY to have contract and subsidization to hide the prices to try to keep people from being putt off by the hefty launch prices. IDK why people thing the'll be $400, thats doesnt seem realistic.

what the dick are you on about. Aus tends to pay more based on shipping, economic and population factors.Although because you say "cuz" instead of because i doubt you will be older than 15 so those factors will just go woosh over the head on the shoulders you own.

I don't see it selling that well outside of US without TV features unless it has one hell of a launch lineup, which most consoles don't.

stating facts that you are essentially a complete and utter tool that acts like an idiot shut in teenager equates to me being butthurt? ok but sure keep posting like that and you still further prove my point that you are an idiot that has nothing of worth to add to any arguement except idiotic gifs and pictures not to mention the fact you cant even say because god...are people learning anything at school now.

Yep, but to be honest I bet it's gonna be pretty expensive. At least $750 if I have to guess.

Not going to cost that much. At that price, they'd be competing with gaming PCs, which would make the console irrelevant.

Both the Ps4 and Xbox One have a placeholder value of $1000 in New Zealand, if the ps3 was anything to go by, they will cost that much if not more here as well. Minimum wage is $13.75, better go back to live with my parents.

gaming pcs do not cost $750 in australia...more around the $1500-2000 mark.

You just pull that number out of your ass? You can get a PC with an FX-6300 and 7870 for just over $800. $1,000 will have you a 3570K and 7950.
