As far as any new and modern gaming console is concerned, one of the factors which ultimately end up having a role to play in its success or failure is the price. Following this maxim, we can safely state that the Playstation 5 price will play a major role in determining whether the new console is a phenomenal success or a spectacular failure. What do we know of the price point of the upcoming Playstation 5 and what can we expect on this front? Let us see.
Playstation 5 Price: History Speaks
As far as the price of Playstation 5 is concerned, it will be interesting to note what the historical precedents have to say. When the original Playstation was released, way back in December of 1994, the price tag was a then-princely $299. That one console set up a revolution of sorts as far as the global gaming industry was concerned. It led to many competitors being born and many have since then perished. Only Microsoft, with its Xbox, and Sony, with its Playstation, have managed to survive the years.
Next came the Playstation 2, which was released 6 years later in 2000. When the PS2 released, it was a huge success, with thousands of units being sold out overnight from retail stores. It also led to a resurgence of gaming enthusiasm as a whole. The Playstation 2 came for a price of $299, the same price tag as its immediate predecessor.
Six years on, we came to the Playstation 3. The PS3, as it came to be known widely, was available for a whopping $599. This was a marked departure from previous pricing strategies, as Sony had trod with caution. Of course, the $599 price tag is not absolute. There were many models, of which the lowest or the base model came for $599. This means that Sony had opted to price its console higher even though it stood the chance of discouraging many customers.
The last release, in 2013, was the Playstation 4, which, once again, had a lower price point of $399. This meant that many customers now had direct access to modern technology so essential to the prevalence of modern gaming. This also meant that the gaming industry had enough customers to spread the enormous development costs around. In fact, we believe that this last part is also applicable to the Playstation 5 price tag as well.
Thanks to the prevalence of cloud computing and 4K TV consoles around the world, Sony need not take these into consideration when deciding upon the price of the PS5. We believe that the Sony Playstation 5 will come for around $499.

Tekken 8 is possibly one of the most speculated games now which is quite an enigma. Long being a cult favorite, the Tekken series has successfully hit its target garnering numerous game buffs in the process, ever since the game was introduced in 1994. 2017 will witness another mind-blowing Tekken game (touted to be the ninth installment).
After the arcade version in 2015, and the updated version in 2016, serious gaming gurus now cannot wait anymore for yet another version that is rolling out for PC and consoles. But here we are more concerned about whether fans will be capable of getting their hands on yet another main entry under the name Tekken 8!
Tekken 7: Gameplay
Tekken 7 has been a wild hit ever since the game was released in 2005, with the new version launched on June 2, 2017. For platforms, the game is playable on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It has been three years since the game was released in the Japanese arcade, so it logical for developers to balance the closure with perfection. In the graphics aspects, Tekken 7 looks perfect powering the Unreal Engine 4 offered by detailed characters as well as the dynamic environment. As for the devs, they are sure of the fact that the game consists of the most tightly integrated stories. But that’s not the ultimate reason for fans to get their hands on the game. With an inclusion of a traditional Arcade Mode, alongside Treasure Mode, the gameplay gives you an opportunity to pit against an endless gauntlet of opponents along with chances of unlocking the clothing with an addition of earning in-game currency. At the release, the game includes a roster of 36 fighters, including 10 entirely new in the franchise. The most surprising addition to Tekken 7 does not only make you a third person observer but also strips off most of the UI of the game for an essential training mode rather than the full-fledged game.
Tekken 8: When can we expect?
After Tekken 7, fans now want to move on with another full-fledged game under the Tekken series, perhaps Tekken 8? But as said earlier, Tekken 8 comes to us as an enigma; we cannot really expect the game to roll out anytime sooner. Thus, we take a stab for Tekken 8 release date at least not before 2018.
In conclusion, we can say that the developers will get a chance to explore yet another Tekken world with a new story arc if at all Tekken 8 happens.

Officially, Microsoft states this console to be the most powerful machine ever launched. On a serious note, fans would not be getting the GPU horsepower of the newest high-end cards from the Nvidia and AMD.

Xbox 2 Design- Exteriorly the design of Xbox 2 quite resembles with that of the Xbox One S with a similar design blueprint. As we know, One S was a breath of fresh, and fans are entirely content to Microsoft for creating the similar trends over and over again. On the basis of size, the upcoming console is a bit smaller than the old Xbox One S; but the game-changer here is the color variant being different from the previous version. Xbox One S sported a clean white color scheme; whereas Xbox One X is more of a space gray, color wise. It’d be quite unnatural if hardware too were identical to that of its predecessor, but it’s obviously different from One S in order to avoid confusion. On the front, One X has subtle slot-loading disc slot alongside a single USB port as well as Xbox logo designed as ‘on’ button.
Xbox 2 Release Date as scheduled by the developers, this upcoming gaming console is likely to release not before 2019. For more information on Xbox 2 stay glued to every possible news and rumors.

Ever since the gaming industry started booming, there arrived various games which took gamers by storm. Now that we have already witnessed an impressive number of gaming enthusiasts in the field of football-based games, FIFA games stand out to be the finest video gaming consoles when talked about the house of football gaming. And now that fans have already witnessed FIFA 17 and its success, serious gamers want to move on with yet another console of the FIFA games.
Ever since EA Sports released the game in the year 1993, it successfully yielded better consoles after every second year. Now according to rumors, fifa18gamer.com has already been in developmental process, and makers are trying hard to focus on some glitches which were seen in the previous edition. So gamers around the globe, you can be assured that you will be able to play FIFA 18, hopefully by the end of 2017. But if you are looking for the exact FIFA 18 release date then it is surely impossible to speculate, but if at all FIFA maintains its trends then we hope the makers to unveil the game by the end of September.
Coming to the glitches that developers are predicted to develop in the next installment of FIFA, there are few in the queue. First, we have the graphical glitches; which was really hilarious in FIFA 17. Players without heads, referee pulling the yellow card out of nowhere; these were some technical glitches that are predicted to get fixed in the next edition. However, one thing the developers are predicted to do, i.e. improving those penalty shootouts. It becomes tough at times for players to hit the ball and aim for the corner shots; we hope these glitches are resolved with the FIFA 18 console.
With FIFA we have witnessed Women’s League in FIFA 16. Unfortunately, while choosing to play the women’s football, fans had to select the international team for women. Thereby they wouldn’t be getting an option of playing club football. With FIFA 16, fans were highly amused, so we hope EA would look into this matter and also bring back the Women’s League as well.
With FIFA 18, Indian fans are also amused because rumor says, there would be Indian Super League getting to be a part of the game. But once the game is released, then only the revelation can be made.
