PS4 gets a price drop

Post by King Atem on Fri Oct 09, 2015 9:06 pm

In North America, you can now buy a PlayStation 4 starting at $350. The $50 price cut was announced yesterday and goes into effect today at retailers across the United States and Canada. With the price cut, the PS4 is now offered at the same starting price as the Xbox One going into the holiday season. source

About flipping time there was a price drop, seeing as the PS4 has sold a lot more then anyone thought it would. So getting a price drop was of course inevitable impo.

Face Palm!

Sony literally makes the worst business decisions. If people are going to be buying your console no matter the price, why would you bother dropping it? The console sucks enough as it is and yet people still bought it, the price really doesn't seem to play much of a factor.

Also when did the Xbox One get a price drop?!

It'll help me to get a PS4 all that more sooner. ;D

According to wikipedia, the price drop happened some time in November of last year; 2014.

...Wasn't that only last year? I thought they changed the price back to $400 after the holiday season ended last year.

It's still $350 and Sony did not want to lose any possible sells to Microsoft. So the price cut makes sense if you ask me.

Okay...well if the Xbox One really is still $350 I suppose this makes sense. I just thought it was only for the holidays last year, I really do remember them saying that.

Nope, the $350 price stuck around long after the holiday was over. I've seen it for that price for quite some time now.

I still can't wait to get a PS4, I have some saving still to do to get it but at least I can get it for cheaper then what it was selling for.
