If the OP is accurate about there being models at $430 and $530, I would assume it would be the size of the HDD making the difference.
At $100 difference, it BETTER be like a 160-250GB in the cheaper model and a 1-2TB in the more expensive one. The cost difference between a 500GB and a 1TB right now is pretty negligible, especially for OEMs. I can totally see the PS4 accepting a 15mm high HDD, meaning the largest HDD that would fit would currently be 2TB. If they go with a full size 3.5 inch drive bay, even better, but it is unlikely.
Of course, Sony hasn't even stated whether the HDD in the PS4 would be user-upgradable, so there's still that. I'd be shocked if it wasn't. That is one HUGE selling point with the PS3 over the 360.
To answer the question... about $500. I'd probably go higher for a Black Flag or Second Son bundle, since I'd be buying one of the two games (probably both) along with the PS4, anyway.
Keeping my PS3 to go along side it, so backward compatibility is not an issue.
im all for a video game system that can play movies, but in all seriousness, who puts their pictures/music on their ps3's, or uses the internet on the ps3? i will use my computer or smartphone thank you.

I put music on the PS3....
I've got my PS3 playing a couple solid playlists when I'm cleaning or playing a game that I don't want to alt tab out of. Then on the flipside, my computer plays music when I'm playing on my PS3. Both pretty much switch regularly between feeding into my speakers, speakers + headset, or both through headset, depending on how much noise I wanna make.
Pictures/Internet - I'll pass. The internet would have been useful if the browser didn't suck so badly but I've already moved on. Unfortunately, my brief encounter with browsing the internet on the Vita shows that Sony didn't learn anything with the PS3.
good point. but i have an ihome and computer literally right next to my ps3...
and i thought most games you cant play your music through? (only game that i know of that i have is SSX)
$399.99. Because IMO that's reasonable. And pricing it at $499 or $599 is not a good idea. Because that's why sales for the PS3 were so bad for so long. I also paid $599 for my PS3, I don't want to pay the same price for the PS4.
If the price is over $500, I may not buy a PS4 until a price drop and just stick to PC gaming. With Durango being rumored at $499 or $299, though, Sony needs to set their prices lower or at the same level.
Also, Durango is rumored to have video sharing, similar to the PS4, but it will act like a DVR, allowing end users to record however much they want. Remember: only a rumor
The price point doesn't really matter to me. I willingly paid $499 for my PS 3 6 years ago and never once regretted the purchase. To be honest even if the next XBox is $100 out the gate and the PS 4 is $1000 I wouldn't buy the Xbox system. I might not pay a grand for the PS 4, but I would pay up to $600 for it, as Sony has provided me with more games that I have enjoyed that any other system so far.
That does not mean I will blindly pay any price, but as long the experience is what I'm looking for, then I'll stick to my personal price point for the games I want to play.
