If you were present at the Tokyo Game Show, you might be familiar with the fact that Sony officially announced a PS4 price cut in Japan. You know what this means, right? We westerners are probably going to get the same special treat as well. This is fantastic news for every console lover or anybody who wants to get a console, especially because the PlayStation 4 is dominating the console market right now.
But there is a big question on everybody’s lips. Now that we know that there is a PS4 price cut, we also want to know when. Because the faster we get it, the better. Imagine how a few dollars can change the entire experience! If the PS 4 would even be $50 cheaper, you could get one very good game with it or two decent games. It’s quite a deal.
And the good news is? That this seems to be the exact sum that is going to be cut from the initial price. Better get your wallets ready everyone. It’s time to show Steam that PS users are more dedicated that the PC ones! Well, that might not happen anytime soon, but there is nothing bad in being positive right?
Also, what would be very interesting to see is how Microsoft would deal with this price cut, since the PlayStation 4 would go down to the same price as the Xbox One. Competition is still in Sony’s favor after we have seen countless times that, despite having a cheaper console, Microsoft’s Xbox demand is way, way under PlayStations, even if they cost $50 more.
A lot of people are wondering when this announcement is going to be made and speculations have already risen. According to the console believers, we should expect the big news somewhere around Black Friday. Not only does Sony benefit from Black Friday anyway, but making this announcement before such a big event would definitely turn the massive console tide towards them and they are a company that can deal with the big wave.
Microsoft should take this move into account. If they don’t, they would be at a serious disadvantage. Some say that it would be a good idea to drop the Xbox One’s price for $50 as well, but this would bring Microsoft almost no benefit apart from attracting a few customers on the market who are not exactly the PlayStation type.
We just have to wait and see how things unfold, but from our point of view, Sony is playing quite hard.
