Thread Details

Just announced at Tokyo Game Show, the PS4 will be getting an official price drop in Japan starting 10/1, pushing its price to around $300. It's difficult to say how this will affect US/Europe pricing. Currently the PS4 seems to be doing well against the XB1, despite the price gap. While the PS3 saw similar time frame price cuts across regions last gen, it had a much more storied launch and more pressure to quickly cut prices. I believe in Japan console gaming seems to be flagging, which is why they may be dropping the price there, despite little home console competition from either Nintendo or Microsoft. Either way something to keep in mind if you are waiting for a price drop to purchase a PS4.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm really cheap so the $200-300 price point is my sweet spot for most consoles. I'll still probably wait until I can grab it on a black friday some year for $199 ish

I'm on the fence - i dont think they'll drop the price here until after holidays....esp with that Darth Vader console....i really want that console but going to be hard not to pull the trigger early if the BF deals are good.
