Obviously we all know the WiiU's price, but after this flood of rumors yesterday let's start to look at pricing for next gen.
Personally I think Microsoft will push the advanced tech. However, much like their tablets, will charge highly. I believe the lauch price of $500 that was rumored and I think they'll pay for it. Sony will launch at $400 at most after this gen's pricing fiasco and they will have a seperate attachment for BC (which I will buy in a heartbeat to avoid having 2 boxes and be able to sell my PS3 towards the PS4. They can afford to push hardware with this price (maybe not lose as much as Microsoft because of finances) and still keep the cost low because they can stick with the traditional controller and use cloud gaming to help them push graphics for those willing to pay. We will see Sony and Nintendo drastically outsell Microsoft as their arrogance in pricing will mimic that of Sony this gen. However they don't have the first party stable to make the recovery PS3 did and will only maintain a lead in NA while losing drastically in Europe.
