    @Popzeus - I feel the same. I'm disappointed already and nothing has been announced! :D

    I think I'm more interested in the discussion. Hopefully one of them will offer more than upgraded visuals.
    Like pizza and 7up? Would be nice.

    I would be surprised if it came in over 300, to be honest. All the technology that is going into it is mature and surely there is someone at sony with the brain cells to realise this is going to be the most price sensitive console they have ever released.

    If it was up to them, Nintendo would give it away with a complementary puppy, but those bastard retailers...

    In fact, the only way it would break the 300 barrier is if they did something idiotic like put a touch screen into the joypads.

    I'm sure it'll have a tablet controller of some sort. It's too useful a feature not to.

    weren't both the PS1 and PS2 299 at launch? The PS3 was stupidly overpriced at 425. I'd expect this to come in around 350 i reckon although it maybe higher as i don't see Sony subsidising the cost of hardware much this time round.

    They've always sold their consoles at a loss, the PS3 is still selling at a loss for that matter.

    I think only Nintendo have sold their hardware at a profit.

    Or from wiki: On September 17, 2007 the Financial Times reported that the direct profit per Wii sold may vary, from $13 in Japan to $49 in the United States and $79 in Europe.

    $79!

    I think Sony will show the hardware and give some details at this first event, and games and pricing comes at E3. Microsoft will probably turn to Jimmy Fallon for it, like they did Kinect, and go either late Feb or early March, also announcing price at E3 and showing games.

    Basically, I think the best we get is maybe a look at hardware and a release window.

    I've tried looking, and the suggestion is the new machine may be making money per sale finally. But bloody hell is it impossible to find an article more up to date than 2010!

    You can bet your bottom dollar that the unveil will will be a massive disappointment. There's no way the info you really want will be released this early in the hype schedule.

    Ahh that was a bit disingenuous of them.

    The PS3 not-so-slim brought them near break even (6 cent loss on the dollar as of Feb 2010), so I'd hazard a guess that the recent PS3 slimmer improved that position even further. If I cared more I'd look, but whatever.

    I'm praying it'll be a souless, gaudy affair with horrific toe curling hip yoof focus.

    Hmm. I think if my console could do all the things my smart phone can I'd consider it pretty useful. A virtual keyboard would certainly make a browser more appealing.

    That's the thing! People seem to bemoan Nintendo's technology standpoint, but they always go about things in the perspective of actually making money from their product. Which isn't that much of a barmy business proposition.

    Don't know if this has already been posted. A bit more info here. Looks as though Europe get it in early 2014.

    If they're not making a profit on the super slim they've done something horribly wrong. That thing is manufactured out of sticks, cereal boxes and old chewing gum.

    It's not that bad, fresh chewing gum that's been on the floor.

    A timely reminder of Sony's habit of launching in Europe months behind Japan and North America. I remember their infamous "pack of lies" E3 PS3 reveal where they touted a simultaneous worldwide launch. Which, along with most of the other claims from that conference, never happened.
