It's a strange one because it's going against one of the major selling points that consoles have always had over PC gaming but at the same time, we should have seen it coming really. Despite all the pre-release hype of the GDDR5 RAM and the Xbox One's cloud, these systems were woefully underpowered and are already really showing their age.
The sticking point is going to be price. That article says it's expected to launch at $399 which was the price of the original PS4 at launch, so you've got to assume it'll be £349 here. If I spend £400 Q4 this year on PSVR, PS Move and the PS Camera, I'm not going to be thrilled about spending abother £350 Q1 next year. That takes my total PS4 spend, without games, to £1000. Stick an extra controller and a wireless headset on top of that as well.
