That's a good price. In my country, it'll be the equivalent of 633.73 US dollars.

The PS4 keeps the custom game-specific backgrounds when you highlight them? Fuck yeah, I love that on the current XMB!

Now if only Sony could launch with that price in other parts of Asia such as the Indian subcontinent, Southeast asia, etc they'll divert a lot of sales off black market. I know it also greatly depends on the countries import laws.

Do we have a definitive list of all the countries PS4 is launching in, within say...three months of US/CAN launch date? Must be nearly 40 countries by now.

As a person living in Taiwan, cool! Playstation is always dominate here. I don't even know if the Xbox one will be out here at all yet.

Over 40, I think it's launching in 32 in November(35 if you count UK as 4 countries). Probably 40 countries in 2013.

All in all, Sony launches in 38 countries by end of 2013.

And if you're extended it for three months then that'd obviously include Japan as well.

With that many countries, I think Sony has at least 2.5-3 million units in inventory.

Wonder if the playroom is permanently stuck to the front page, or if you can pin certain games from your library there?

Microsoft is going to have to dominate in North America to come close to Sony in worldwide sales.

I don't know why people thought this.

From the very beginning of the PS4 unveiling, a large part of the UI proposition was that the background changes into that game's background when you get into the game selection. And that was reiterated at Gamescom when the 'alpha UI' also had the dynamic background. ( if it couldn't make it at launch, they wouldn't demo it there with it )

The fact that it's not there, while dynamic game-specific background means that they either didn't bother at first, or they're looking at potential monetisation of themes for the future.

That'd require like... 70-80% domination in North America.

That is very interesting, even though I have no interest in buying any consoles anymore on launch day.

Also 12,000 NT is still out of my price range.

Great, after the suspend feature being delayed I was worried that we wouldn't be able to do it for other OS features.

Anybody else noticed that in the posted youtube vid, the person playing was hitting X for confirm and menu options have X for confirm as well?


I wonder if they were just using a US unit for the event, since Asian and Japan PlayStation stuff has had O as the confirm button for so long

I hope Sony is finally giving us the option to swap them as we please. It's huge PITA especially on Vita, where majority of western games support only X as confirm.

I bought a PS3 in Taiwan on launch day (with 3 games) for about US $600.

I still have the rain jacket I got with it though. ;)

The Taiwanese market is a lot closer to the Japanese market than the US market. Sony Taiwan been funding translation for Japanese RPGs in Chinese. They are just banking that Dynasty Warriors is enough to be a system seller.

I remember paying around NT$11,500 for the Uncharted Vita bundle near launch. This price is quite awesome in comparison.

One thing: you expected somewhere to be more expensive than Australia?
