Since I only use my consoles for gaming I think 500GB should be alright. I also hope these are 100% user serviceable, non-proprietary drives. That would be the smart thing so that 5 years down the road we'd still be able to upgrade to something substantial (which might be 4-5Tb by that time).

I almost feel guilty at having to say that whilst I'm going to get a PS4, it probably won't be a day-one buy.
i'm doing the same. i'm buying a 3ds and a 3ds xl in October (for pokemon) which is going to set me back about $500 when every thing is said and done so i'll be tapped out for some time. plus i want to avoid any and all YLOD/RROD reincarnations. i'll likely be in the market come November '14 or sometime in '15.

I'm guessing this 500gb is just for the 'base model'; they'll want you to pay extra for the bundle pack with the larger HDD and two games included.
There is only one SKU, if you want a bigger HDD buy one and install it. This console is taking the PS3 approach in that if you want 4Tb you can remove the old drive and install a new one.
At this day and age, 500gb is quite small for what the unit intends to do.

Just to confirm, the PS4 is region free, yeah? Over here, they are taking pre-orders at $548 and $549 respectively. What a *bleep*ing joke.

WTF SONY!!!!

You said every PS4 will come bundled with a camera, I watched you say it back in February. That's a little un-fair now to go back on that.. Shame on you... First the PSplus requirement to play online & now this? The majority say you've won the console war, I'm not jumping on that bandwagon just yet... You're just drip feeding the info out to soften the blow... Well it ain't working.... :/

will there be something similar to The Xbox Live Party?

This would really swing my decision towards getting the PS4 as i love to chat to my mates when they are playing Minecraft and I'm on FIFA. This leads onto my new question.

Will there be Minecraft?


Cheers

They probably decided against it so they could make the console cheaper, no sense in making customers buy one if they don't want it.

Hell, they may have just said that to get Microsoft to bundle the Kinect, just so they could go back on their word and undercut them.

I'm surprised to find that a headset will come as standard in the box, and i'm not sure whether its a good thing or bad thing....Good because getting together with PSN friends will be fun, on the flipside its bad because absolutely everybody in any online game you play will be banging on about 'your mum', or playing music down the airwaves. That 'mute' button has never been as essential as it will be on the PS4.

Amazon has confirmed that Australians can buy from the US store and have it shipped for $15.

What. Stop.
Buy the camera yourself if you want it so badly, no need to make it required for everyone when they don't one and it'd just drop the price. <_

I have to admit, I think it's a far greater selling point not having the camera as part of the bundle, not just because the whole camera thing is freaking out gamers and, humans being humans, they'll take similar stuff on the PS4 badly, but that screams of a peripheral that should remain an optional peripheral.

For the mass majority of gamers, I would not be surprised if the camera is an unnecessary addition, and given it's general lack of import on the gaming 'verse as a whole, I'd find it hard to say that it is a deciding (or perhaps even relevant) factor in any console war.

Heck, just look at how many people complain about motion controls being tacked on. If you want to ensure people have the hardware to make certain games work then do a separate bundle. The only reason Nintendo gets any sort of pass is because their consoles are usually built for the games they want to make rather than the other way around, not defending them on this just saying that even the N64 was built with SM64 in mind.
