  1. Seems like a reasonable price give that this system is supposedly more powerful than PS3 and 360. Speaking of which, when do you think we’ll hear about the successors of those two consoles?


    • Has to be E3 next year, with all the big games coming out so early next year, they have to be aiming for a possibly Holiday 2013 release.


    • I saw a few on MyIGN saying it was a hefty price over there, don’t think I have seen any official details personally. Yeah expensive stuff.
