Sony’s PS4 will be released in October and cost £300. Or at least that’s what a reporter for The Sun believes.
Both statements are dropped into the paper’s interview with Sony’s Andrew House, although neither are attributed to the exec. Indeed, The Sun simply says PS4 is “believed to be coming out in October” and that “experts believe [PS4] could retail for about £300”.
Both statements could be true. Or just one of them. Or neither of them. Indeed, is there even such a thing as empirical truth, as Hume once asked?
We’re going a bit off track here I think.
Anyhow, elsewhere in the interview House reiterates that while Sony is obviously looking to service the hardcore gaming community with its new machine, it isn’t forgetting about the wider market.
“We are not going down the route of making the console pink of course,” he stated. “I think the key is to have people — and increasingly women — with different sensibilities creating different games. It is not all about shoot ’em up games. The key is getting games developers — who are going to make the next Angry Birds — excited about the PS4. And they are.”
£5 on Sony releasing a pink PS4 by 2015, anyone?
