Sony cuts PlayStation 4 price in the US & Canada

08 Oct 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony is getting ready for the big Holiday shopping season and has cut the price of PlayStation 4 by $50 dollars. Starting tomorrow, it will be available for $350, which is the same as Microsoft’s Xbox One.

A $50 dollar price cut

The launch price for PlayStation 4 was $399 in the US and 399 Euro in Europe. Sony cut the price in Japan last month and is now doing the same in the US and Canada (CAD429.99). No words on the European price.

The new price is effective tomorrow, October 9. By tomorrow, the 500GB version of PlayStation 4 will be available for $349, which is the same price as the 500GB version of Xbox One. Microsoft cut the price of its console earlier this year and removed Kinect from the standard package.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 has outsold Microsoft’s Xbox One in most regions and the two are heading into the important Holiday season hoping to lure gamers in with a line-up of new games and lower prices. Starting tomorrow, Sony will also offer a PS4 & Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection bundle for $350.

Meanwhile, other players such as Apple, Google and Amazon are trying to position their latest TV media players as game casual game consoles. Nvidia has launched its dedicated game console, Nvidia Shield, based on Android TV.
