Rumor has it that the next-generation PlayStation will be priced somewhere in the ballpark of $400.
According to Japanese newspaper, Asahi Shimbun (translated by The Verge), the device will bear a price tag of 40,000 Yen, which converts to approximately $430. Back when the PS3 first launched, it was priced at 60,000 Yen in Japan, and $600 in the United States, so if history (and this report) prove to be true, then Sony will likely price the device at an even $400.
