Unbelievable price tag: USD150!!
This is a model with only 16GB internal storage (rumored), and one have to take into consideration that online or offline, installation is required for EVERY game to run, unlike Xbox (recently it was announced that Halo 4 will required installation at the size of 8GB, but that is actually required for multiplayer only). But hey this perfectly suits my gaming habit. I am not a greedy gamer. I always focus on not more than two games, and usually one for one given period.
And I dont think Sony will offer cloud saving. Even if it does, it wont take it seriously. Japanese are known for their suspicious attitude towards Internet.
But of course, I rather not play naive and face the truth that this generation of game consoles are all almost at the end of their own product life. If the remaining life is only for 1 to 2 years, USD150 is rather pricy for me. If it would last for another 3 to 4 years (very probable, given the current economic outlook), I would then consider this price tag to justify itself.
I still hope Sony will bring warranty coverage to Chinese buyers though.
