Price for Sony PS4A number of rumors have come out over the past several days, some of them more credible than others, and one even tied to a major Japanese newspaper, that peg the price of Sony’s next console release, the PS4, at somewhere north of $400.

Japan’s top daily, the Asahi News just published a story on the PS4, and included mentions that it believes the console├é┬áwill launch toward the end of the year in both Japan and the US, priced around 40,000 Yen, which translates to just under $430.

Now rumors are rumors, but Asahi News is about├é┬áequivalent├é┬áto the New York Times – not exactly the kind of journalism outfit to be running with bad tips and half-baked assertions. At this point, it is the most├é┬ábelievable├é┬áprinted piece on where the PS4 will land price-wise.

Some tech blogs in the U.S. are thinking that the numbers will actually shake lower, perhaps to a shelf price of $399. As with everything else surrounding Sony’s next big thing – we’ll just have to wait.
