It was already leaked out by EB Games, but Sony has confirmed the pricing of the PlayStation 4. It will be sold at AU$549.00 in Australia. That is a massive markup from its US$399 pricetag in America – and you can place the blame largely on the feet of the Australian Tax.
“Sony Computer Entertainment Australia is pleased to confirm that the Australian pricing for the PlayStation 4 is RRP$549.00,” Sony said in a statement (via Gizmodo)
However, it still remains cheaper than the Xbox One – but only just $50. So while there is a price war over in America, we’re not getting that.
