Yeah, my guess is that the best we could hope for might be a $50 price reduction to $349 by next Christmas 2014.

By next Christmas you will see value bundles. Ps4 with game for 399.
Ps4 camera included 399

You won't see a price drop for years, but value bundles will show up.
2015 1tb with infamous bundle 399 etc

Wrong. They're making $18 off of each PS4 sold.
