The PS3 launched at $499 and $599, so I can't imagine the new one will be $299. Hell, a new PS3 is about that. I have read that the expected price point for the PS4 is about $400.

This. So much this. Just can't stand paying extra money to play portions of games I already paid for.

I have both systems, and honestly the comparisons between online gaming of ps3 and Xbox are miles apart. The quality and quantity of players is far superior on Xbox. Don't get me wrong, there are some great players on ps3. However, there is a gigantic gap compared to Xbox. Servers for games on ps3 are rarely full where they're not on Xbox. I personally love xbl and prefer it over psn. To each their own.

I know I will be buying an Xbox at launch. The only thing that would deter me would be if they make it so you can't play used/rented games. But that would be monumentally stupid of either system to do that.
Oh btw, Destiny and watchdogs will be on both platforms.

I guess paying for xbl doesn't bother me as much as some. Having played many pc games with a sub fee, the xbl equivalent just makes sense. Not everything should be free.
As for the PS4, I watched the conference as well and felt it was introduced a little premature. No real titles to watch and the system is rumored to come out before Xmas. The share feature is pretty cool, but NHL13 and fraps kinda made this not such a new thing. The ease of pushing a button is convenient, but not next-gen IMO.
As for the future, lets hope E3 has something.

Considering I currently have 36 titles across four systems to get to, I won't be joining the next gen anytime soon. Honestly, there are too many amazing games across the current gen to worry about moving up; in addition to all the games I own there are dozens more on my "wish list". If you are a primarily offline gamer like I am, being on the "current" game and system doesn't matter... so I'll just join the party in a few years when prices drop.
I have always been loyal to Sony due to my affinity towards JRPGs. I wonder if the PS4 will remain loyal to this genre or disregard it? The next-gen system w/ the most exclusive JRPGs will definitely be the one that earns my business.

It will cost $400 upon release. Sony ****ing killed it at E3! I've never considered myself a fanboy...but I'm excited and impressed as hell. Used games will work without paying a fee (so it's just like it was before,) the console/games don't require you to be "always on," the games look great...and they announced Kingdom Hearts 3! :D

Holy crap. The PS4 press conference was awesome.
They started with the VITA crap where they were begging people to buy it. But after that, I'm blown away. While I still need to gather all the information and wait for more details as this E3 event continues... PS4 easily has me won over if I had to choose today.
$400 bucks instead of $500. Don't have to be online or check in once every 24 hours.
Of course, to play online on PS4, you NEED PS+. But most of us are used to paying for Xbox Live anyway, so this will be no big deal at all. Plus, you never have to pay retail price anyway for the yearly subscription. Just buy it on Amazon or Ebay for 20 bucks less.

From what I saw from E3, Sony definitely won me over. They took a giant **** on Microsuck and made them look like clowns. Well deserved. Good job, Sony. I'm looking forward in the days to come to hear more.

PS4 all the way. Easy, easy choice.
