A bazillion games with all different prices seems less likely than just paying by the month.

Industry sources and leaked internal documents suggest that Sony is considering pricing the new device at about £300, more than £100 cheaper than the starting cost of its predecessor, the PlayStation 3.

Japanese national newspaper Asahi Shimbun claimed earlier this month that Sony has internally set the PS4 price above 40,000 yen (£278 / $430 at current exchange rates).

Our source—the same reliable source who back in early 2012 told us the codename for Sony's next console and the codename for Microsoft's next console—tells us that there are two models planned for the new machine, and that pricing won't be announced until later this year, possibly around E3. The current plan, our source says, is to release them at $429 and $529, but that could change.
Baird Equity Research says the new console hardware will be sold for $350-$400 in autumn, right in time for the Christmas shopping season that's sure to bring a slew of sales to each company. The research firm's sources have spent CES "with a number of companies involved in video game development and distribution" for the basis of its report.

Why would they completely rewrite the design of the game for PS4? Stands to reason it would still be linked with the Blizzard servers. Happy to be proven wrong [...]

Nor do I unless they seriously crank up the "Australia Tax"... which did happen for the PS3, mind you. :/
