I won't TD but the price doesn't seem that good, especially from a eBay seller. On the other hand, it says over 5000 sold, so, someone must think it's an OK deal. (this might have been over many months or years, though.)

What's odd to me is that it's not one that's bundled with a game -- as far as I know all PS4 systems over the past 1-2 years have been a "something" bundle. It says "original packaging" but doesn't show a picture -- and as far as I can tell, it doesn't show the Sony model number (not just "PS4" but the CECH- number which identifies the specific model of console).

It raises a concern that these may be "launch" hardware, not the slightly smaller version that came out in 2015. The newer version is smaller, lighter, uses less power, and generates less heat. I would advise against getting a launch-generation one due to long-term heating/reliability issues.

It's pretty much the cheapest new PS4. But prices are dropping with the announcement of the new PS4 system coming out.

Which is what always happens when (any) new consoles are coming out. Nothing "slick" about this price or some eBay seller along with most people here probably waiting to see what the new console has to offer before deciding.

Which can be said about any product. A new version of whatever always comes out, that doesn't mean there isn't deals for either version. This is a Slickdeals for me since its the cheapest it's ever been for a new one. It may be some eBay seller but it's a top seller with thousands of sales. Prpbably got these wholesale too.

Yes, given "wholesaler" is also in their name. As for "Top Rated" they are not with a chunk of negative transactions.

Game consoles dont come out every year so comparing them with the rest of electronics is not valid. But in general this price has been available multiple times in Ebay. What doesnr makes it slick is that a revised console is going to be announced in 5 days and that will push prices down more than this. So waiting will be a more slick deal than this.

Except they really haven't. The MSRP dropped to $300 last year, but Sony rarely packaged PS4s on their own in favor of game bundles. As a result, retailers marked up the base model price, so any sale on a $350 bundle seemed like a "good" deal.

I guess some would say that paying near MSRP for a poorly stocked item is a "deal" but to each their own. Sony is just offloading their warehouses of outdated consoles and people are swarming to them like starved ants.

huh? this isn't an ebay reseller scum. it's a wholesaler who clearly got a huge lot of these base consoles, prob at a good discount before the new console released and now offloading them on ebay

pretty amazing they have 5000+

How did they get over 5000 PS4 if regular people have to go and find it?

They dropped them to $299 for a limited time. But the MSRP is still at $349.99 on any I've seen around.

Either way, check out the negative feedback on this seller. Lots of angry buyers.

New in original box but they have a stock photo of PS4 out of the box. Too much of the wrong kind of negative feedback. Stay away from this!
