    You guys are forgetting tax. 499+Canadian HST makes it around $570. Still, the UK is too expensive. The UK price translates to about 650-700 bucks. Insane.

    In other words, MS thinks we are a bunch of avid gamers who will jump on his console. No thanks.

      Hopefully it will go to the other platforms. Personally, I want to play it on the PC, or the PS4 or Wii U at least, but I'll be dam^ed if I'll buy an Xbone for it.

      It will also probably be $600-$700 here as well, which is probably going to lose a lot of pre-orders.

      Yeah, it's scary how many polls have been in favor of the Xbone, especially considering most of the outcry against it.

        None from the X-Box One launch line-up has impressed me, besides Killer Instinct.

        $500 for a set? No thanks. DRM? HELL to the NO. It's funny they decided to sweep it under the rug.

        I don't care about the pre-order stats currently because they mean nothing. Microsoft went first, so it is certain they have more people going for the xbox one.
        I bet after the Sony conference, you will have the PS4 getting more pre-orders, on average, then the xbox one at the time.

        Just how it works. Wait and see in a month or two and see who is actually ahead.

        I'll never be able to afford these game consoles TT.TT And Valve isn't doing anything for E3 2013 TT.TT I'll be excited for Assassin's Creed, Company of Heroes 2, and more on the story for COD: Ghosts. Go PC Gaming!

            LOL Sony is flag-waving their Non-XBOX restrictions on used games.

            Sony killed at E3.

            No used game restrictions? No online requirements?

            Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts freaking three?!

            I'm buying a PS4. No questions asked.

            Well, that was entertaining. I am sold on the PS4. Sounds like you have to pay for online gaming, which sucks, but a £349 price ($399) and the games and features easily covers that up for me.

            Sorry Microsoft, but you lost.

              Microsoft just lost that so hard. FF versus was epic. KH epic. The way they handled the whole used games and online thing made me laugh.

              And then to kick it off with the price... Just killed it.

              Do you think the PS4 will get a price drop in the first year or so or is $399 as good as it's gonna get for a while? Sorry, speculating on price drops already, I'm cheap, I know, I'm not going to buy any gaming system full price

              It's not too bad paying of PS+ considering how much better it is than xbox gold.


              Also the Australian price for the PS4 is $550, while the Xbox One is $600. I didn't think the price difference here would be so close to each other.

                So far, Sony has won E3 with Versus XIII/XV/whatever and the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts 3. It's gonna take Nintendo a lot of hype to exceed the same levels of Square's game for the PS4 (maybe revealing Ridley for the SSB4 trailer should do?).

                  Microsoft got told.

                  I'm pumped. Can't wait for Nintendo Direct too (SSB trailer especially).

                  Hyped for the Nintendo Direct stream. Mainly for that SSB4 and maybe some X/Y? I know there's a round table about it but yeah

                  The PS4 looks way better than Xbox One.


                  Sony just put the finally nail in Microsoft's coffin. With FF XV and KH3 , they won.

                  Can't wait to see what Nintendo has to offer, maybe they can beat Sony, but who knows. I'll probably still sleeping when the Nintendo Direct happens here (even if it at 9am here, I usually don't wake up till 11am or 12pm) but I'll probably catch the info on Facebook newsfeed on all the Pokemon and Nintendo- related pages I've liked lol. Pokemon Direct on the other hand, I hope I'll be awake and on my computer as the Twitter updates are happening. (And refreshing Twitter constantly. XD) Can't wait for more X and Y info mostly.

                  Well, I wasn't able to follow the coverage during the day, but it looks like Sony won out big time over Microsoft and the Xbox One. The only real downside that I've heard is that you have to pay $5 a month for PS+ if you want to play online, but with the 360 having done that for the past couple years, it isn't that big of a concern to me.

                  And while I was already leaning towards getting the PS4, it easily sounds like the better system, and starting $100 cheaper is a huge plus in my book. I still can't see myself getting it at launch (I'll wait to see the public's opinion on it before I jump in), but it would take something huge for me to want to jump ship to the Xbox at this point.

                  I'm also interested in what Nintendo has to offer in their presentations. I've been on the fence about hearing any X/Y info, since I'd like to avoid spoilers as much as humanly possible, but just logging onto PC everyday makes it hard to stay away, so I might just end up tuning in. And while I don't really care about the Wii U, I'd love to hear what they have in store for the 3DS over the next couple of months.
