Microsoft believes that since they are over delivering in value by such an extent that gamers are going to be flocking to the job centre to earn enough money to buy the most expensive console on the market.
By now, we’re getting ready for a next generation where we can finally be accused of being Playstation fanboys for a change. Ha! Progress. I’ve got a credit card and I’m not afraid to use it, but even if this turns out to be RRP, then the Playstation 4 is going to be more expensive than I imagined.
After eight years of current-generationing, Microsoft is finally ready to move on and look towards the future. With Nintendo having fired the first shot in the next-gen war with the Wii U, Sony hit back with the Playstation 4 earlier this year. And from the rear, comes the Xbox . We’ll be updating as news arrives, so stay awhile, and listen!
Time for some fresh Xbox 720 rumours! We’ve got a date, we’ve got a plan and our damn dashboard won’t stop hyping the event now. So what do the latest rumours point to for the future of the Microsoft console? Subscriptions, selling price, operating systems and more!
Well, technically speaking, the Xi3 Piston isn’t the official Steam Box that Valve is supposedly tinkering away on, but it sure does fill many of the requirements for said vapour-PC-console. The Piston has just been announced as having a launch date towards the end of the year, and that pint-sized box is going to arrive with a hefty price tag.
I don’t envy the Skylanders team right now. They’ve hit on a great gap in the market, and it’s one that appeals to the demographic with the most cash to spend: Kids. And by money to spend, I mean the funds belonging to their parents. Still, Skylanders isn’t that bad financially speaking, and you know what you’re getting when you buy a new ally for your team. Disney plans to move into that territory though, and they’re bringing with them franchises that range from Pixar to Marvel. But it’s going to cost ya.
The first pre-order page for the PlayStation 4 with a price is up and you may want to sit down for this. According to the page the PlayStation 4 is going to set you back R8300 on launch day.
Who had the most games? Whose games cost the most? Who had the best looking console in previous generations? These are questions that most of you will only be asking now, but they’re still interesting questions nonetheless. The majority of us grew up with at least one console in our homes, entertainment devices that went from catridges to DVDs, from wired controllers to power-gloves. Here’s a mathematical run down of some of the powerhouses from previous generations of gaming, how much they cost in their homebase of US of A, and how much a complete run of games would have set you back.
I’ve got a tin in my bachelor pad (Ladies…), that I’ve been shoving silver coins into. It’s pretty much my next-gen savings fund, and I’m hoping to see that fund GROOOOW throughout the year! Make no mistake, the next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft are going to cost several very pretty pennies. And according to one analyst, quite a few Randelas as well.
The Wii U is something that has stirred up technolust within me once again. The hardware is there, the idea is solid and the launch games look pretty damn good. But all that techno-wizadry comes at a price, at the end of the day. So how much does the Wii U cost then? Well, cover your monitor in plastic and grab a cup of coffee, because you’re looking at paying…
Since the first Wii U press conference was mostly Japanese, it’s time for a western touch from Nintendo for their next-gen device. Here’s all the highlights and details from that New York press conference.
We’ve been teased for months now as to when exactly the Wii U will be arriving. Will it be in time for Christmas, so that Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber can once again assault our ear-drums with a horrid jingle for consumerism? Will it be next year when we’re flat broke? Who knows? Except we do know, as Nintendo has just unveiled the pricing and release date for their next-gen console.
Gamescom has renewed my interest in the PS Vita again. My technolust is rising, thanks in part to the new Cross-Play feature and the slate of upcoming games arriving on the system. Thing is, the Vita isn’t cheap, and it isn’t going to be receiving a price cut any time soon, as Sony Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida says that the standalone device will still cost you a pretty penny.
The price of the upcoming Nintendo Wii-U is still a closely guarded secret with retailers all over the world putting up placeholder prices ranging from the insane $450 to the sublime $100. However it now sounds like we are more likely to see a $299 price tag slapped on the device at launch.
