Exactly. So the ps4 owner who's already happy like me can continue about their merry way. For those who care about a few improvements feel free to shell out another $400. Personally I'll spend that money buying a shit load of games for my current ps4.
Then there's the possibility of buying PSVR so no chance I'll be getting an upgrade.
The only good thing I can see is for those who haven't got a ps4 yet. Sure why not, give them a premium option.
Or give your old ps4 in trade in, similar to when the ps3 and xb360 slim launched. A lot of people wanted trade in their old hardware for the slims.
