With Sony’s big PlayStation event happening tonight, there are sure to be leaks all around the web. Times Magazine recently came across a few leaked documents that suggest that the PlayStation 4, codenamed Orbis, will launch at a flat price point of $399.99. This word goes against previous reports of $429.99 with a higher model priced at $529.99. If this is to be believed, the PlayStation 4 will cost 30% less than the launch price of the PlayStation 3, which suffered from slow sales at when it first was first made available in 2006.

At only $400, the PlayStation 4 could see a lot of units pushed right out the door, and if it’s powerful enough, the price alone could be the deciding factor in who wins this generation’s console war. Now we just need to wait and see what Microsoft has up their sleeves.

Our Verdict

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
