We predicted this earlier in the week, but Sony Australia has now officially announced that the PlayStation 4 will be receiving an official price drop.
“We are delighted to deliver the PS4 system at its best-ever value just in time for the holiday season, making it more accessible to a broader audience in Europe,” said Jim Ryan, SCEE president and CEO.
“With this year’s biggest blockbusters and next year’s best exclusives such as UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End set to thrill players, there has never been a better time to join the PS4 community. Also, watch out for an amazing range of Ultimate Player Edition Bundles including the 1TB PS4 and some of the biggest games of the year, offering even greater value.”
The RRP of the 500GB PlayStation 4 was $549.95. That has been reduced to $479.95.
Both Big W and Target let this cat out of the bag earlier this week when they revealed some incredibly low priced bundles in upcoming catalogues, so we suspected an official price drop was incoming.
Sony declined to comment on this when we approached them on Monday, but now they're making it official: the PlayStation 4 is suddenly $70 cheaper.
