So I just talked with a friend who works at Gamestop.
Here in Italy they have preorder for PS4 at...800€.
Yes, 800€, pretty much the double of the price heard on rumors (it was around 450-550 $).
They have also Destiny on preorder for 80€, not special edition or collector, the "vanilla" one.

hey - the thing is not made yet, the designers are not even sure how it will look yet.. Roll on unfunded rumours and wild speculations.
I'll be surprised if it costs less than $500.

ahh game stop where rip off prices are the norm...
Yes, the price isn't the "real" one yet, it isn't official.
But it's very high and is faaaar away from 500 $ of rumors :l
This is nothing new, gamestop always overprices pre-orders when a new product is just announced, so of course this will not be the real price

My bets are on a 400 Dollar version and a 500 Dollar version (more HDD space or something like that)

I thought this was "standard" price for pre-orders without a set price, since a customer isn't required to pay more than the price at the time of (pre)ordering.
So if Gamestop (or Amazon, or Game) were to advertise a pricetag of $500, and then the PS4 costs $550, the customers that have pre-ordered will only have to pay $500.

So, set a high price, and when the price is revealed, lower the pre-order price to that, along with what the customer has to pay.
If that is/was true that would be one big LOL not because of the price itself but because of people's expectations xD
After Diablo 3's announcement, I saw Diablo 3 for preorder for 999.99€ in one store. The stores make wild estimates sometimes.

/edit: fixed the time to be more vague since I can't actually remember when I saw it :p
Anyway, I wouldn't put too much weight on a guesstimate price.

Well could it be, that they don't even know the actual price yet? I'd assume they put the pre-order price quit high in order to tone it back, as that's much easier to explain to peopl that sellin pre-order with 400€ just to notice, that you have to tell peopl that the actial price is a bit higher.

£399.85
Apogee weekend bundle, $14 USD.
SS2 $9.99 USD.

Why are we even having this thread!? :P
I think it will be at the 350 pound mark but I think it won't have a disk drive (it will be 100% downloads)
Wasn't the release price of the PS3 in the 500-600 euro range for Europe?
