This is kinda off topic, but rather than starting a new thread I'd thought I'd ask it here.
I was listening to a podcast today, and they were talking about how the new super slim PS3 is actually having an increase in it's price. I guess the regular PS3 slim is $249, and the new slim is in some special bundle that is $269.99 or something like that. The guys on the podcast seemed to agree that the price of this super slim pretty much guarantees that there won't be a PS4 in 2013. The thinking, being that normally any time a new console is about to come out, the previous console is selling for $199 or even less. The fact that the new super slim isn't $199, and is in fact priced higher than the previous slim, is confirmation (at least to them), that the PS4 is farther away than first anticipated.
I haven't really been keeping up with things, so I have no idea how valid or off-base that line of thinking is. Do you guys think there is zero chance of a PS4 in 2013 in the USA ? That's the way these guys made it seem.
