If you were excited for the PlayStation $50 price cut, wait until you find out what Sony’s plans might be for Black Friday. It feels like, on Black Friday, the PlayStation 4 price could drop by $100. There is nothing official in in, but judging from the way Sony are promoting the price drop at the moment, we might be in for a massive treat from the world’s number one console.
We want to look at the facts and see if this is going in the right direction. It took Sony almost two years to drop their PS 4 price by $50 and this is a huge step forward because it enables players to access the world renowned console. But this announcement was made in October, one month before the Black Friday event. This is already making buyers question their decision to buy a PS 4, but if they see another $50 drop on Black Friday, they will totally go for the buy. And Sony makes good cash out of it.
There are extra reasons that push players forward when it comes to buying a PS 4. Those are the games that are coming up: Star Wars: Battlefront and the Uncharted collection. The PS 4 bundles that incorporate these games have also witnessed impressive price drops and they surely look tempting to the gamer’s eye.
A PS 4 cost $400 until now. It is going down to $350, but you can buy some bundles for $400 during this period as well, so why would you say not to a free game? It’s the perfect deal and it is the right time to do it, too, especially with the sort of confusion it creates regarding prices. In the buyer’s head, he realizes that he is in an awkward pricing situation, so he might rush into buying something than wait for it.
As mentioned before, there is not official news about the PS4 Black Friday price, but we should have this information by the end of October. We still expect that the PlayStation 4 price could drop by $100, but we still need to see how events unfold. Usually, there is one major store that will establish a price point and everyone else will follow up with almost similar prices to heat up the competition.
