Appearing on CNBC to discuss their newly announced PlayStation 4, Sony Computer Entertainment America President Jack Tretton addressed a couple of things about the system, from pricing to what the PS4 actually looks like, to when we can expect to get more information.
The big thing we can probably take from this, because pricing for the system and what the PS4 looks like always come later, is the pricing of the individual games themselves; which Jack Tretton stated would range from $0.99 to the $60 we’re all familiar with.
“…people are willing to pay if they see the value there; I think there’s more choice for consumers than ever before. We’re gonna welcome free-to-play models, games from $0.99 up to those $60 games…”
Moving on to what the PlayStation 4 looks like and why their meeting Wednesday neglected to show it:
“Ironically, we thought the most important thing is what comes out of the box, not what it looks like. I can promise you that it will be plastic, it won’t be triangle shaped or round, probably be some type of rectangle, but you’ll see the box in due time.”
Tretton also stated that between now and the system’s launch this holiday season, there are several key events where more information will be given; saying that ‘9-10 months is a really a long time.’
