(beats me to creating a thread)... ;)

Like the new 360 - hopefully a price drop in the fall to $149 for the basic no-harddrive system... :)

HUNDREDS of 360 games coming out? How long does that console have left? Are they mostly just downloadable small games?

"I can't wait to get that for my PS4!" is what went through my head the whole time. DRM has put me well and truly off the Xbox One.

Also some mini lols at Sony squeezing in a 5 minute announcement before Microsoft - everyone expecting it to be something huge. It's a F2P card battling game...

The new Xbox 360. Let's take the Xbox 360 and make it look like the Xbox One because thing whole thing isn't confusing enough as it is.

$500 for the One.


If Sony come out with a $399 price tag and no DRM nonsense, this battle may be over before it starts!!

Hey, I can dream, right? :D

Unfortunately, Sony can now come in at the same price point and still make out not having DRM.

There were rumors that it may come in around $430 for one with a lower capacity drive (won't really need it if it runs the games off of the physical game discs).

thats 200 more than what i was hoping for
Supposedly it will be $299 if you subscribe to XBox Live on a contract...

With the way people are reacting to Xbox One ( myself included ) ... a couple right decisions by Sony and the PS4 is going to blow it out of the water.

Xbox keynote was boring, really hoping Sony brings some good stuff.

FREE COPY OF "THE LAST OF US" FOR PS3 IF YOU PREORDER YOUR PS4 BEFORE AUGUST!!

Now that would be a good move! ;)

Couple that with a $399 price tag, and Microsoft can pack up and go home! :p

New Zealand
In case any kiwis are reading, NZ price is $749 (that's $50 less than the 360's launch price and equates to about US$515 before tax).

Edit: And PS4 is $649.

That Killer Instinct casual-rape joke was a bit crazy!

Though you'll get Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 for free if you're a Xbox Live Gold member.
I think we all expected Microsoft would come up with something to add value to Gold to get it up to PS+, but 2 games a month (and currently they've only announced a 4 and 6 year old game, Plus is getting 4-month old AAA games and some indie games when they launch!) seems a bit tight.

My Gold account ends next month, unless more incentives are announced I won't be renewing.

Yes! Very very excited about Mirror's Edge 2! Absolutely loved the first one.

Kingdoms Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV ( Versus XIII ) for PS4!!! So glad KHIII is finally in development. FFXV looked pretty awesome.

This is all so good. No DRM on PS4. What are Microsoft going to do now? They're the only ones with it!

Cheaper than Xbox One, no DRM, loads of great looking games, indies can self-publish, stream PS3 games to Vita. Very happy I stayed up for this. Can't believe it's launching at £349 here and Driveclub will be free with Plus.
All I wanted was more Vita talk!
