There have been rumours rumbling about a potential price drop in both Europe and Australia in the past week. Now, it’s confirmed – well, in Australia at least. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced today that they will drop the price of the 500GB PlayStation 4 from $549.95 to $479.95.
“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,” Jim Ryan, SCEE president and CEO, said in a statement. “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.”
His comments also hint at new bundles coming out in the year.
“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,” Ryan said.
