Evidence Of A U.S. PS4 Price Drop?
Last month during the Tokyo Game Conference, Sony announced a PlayStation 4 price cut for Japan.
Not long after, Microsoft boss Phil Spencer said he expects Sony to cut the price of the system in the U.S. as well, presumably for the holiday season.
Now, have we seen the first indication that Spencer might be right? As spotted by GameSpot, it seems Target has updated its Video Games hub and that's where we find a $349 PS4 system. The retailer is also running a limited-time promotion where they're giving away a $50 gift card with the purchase of certain PS4 bundles. The wording in the image in question does hint at a permanent price drop but it's also using the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection bundle. Perhaps it only refers to that package...? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Previously, we ran a poll asking the community if they thought PS4's price would indeed fall this holiday season, and the results were clear.
