    PS4 Gets First Price Drop at GameStop UK

    It's a small saving, but a saving none the less:

    The PS4 has received its first unofficial price drop in the UK, courtesy of GameStop.

    The online branch of the retailer is selling consoles for 329.97, which is 20 below the retail price seen elsewhere of 349.99. It's worth noting that this isn't an official price drop announced by Sony.

    The Standard Edition of the console is the one that's on offer, coming with just a console and DualShock 4 controller. This is the first time that the console has been available at a discount in the UK, though the Xbox One is available at a couple of retailers like Zavvi and GameStop for a similar discount.

    Interestingly Amazon, which is usually quick to match the discounts of its competitors, appears to still be sold out of PlayStation 4 consoles as only more expensive packages are on offer from third-party sellers.

    Last we heard, Sony has sold 4.2 million PS4 consoles globally. Previously, Sony announced that 2.1 million consoles had been sold globally as of early December, one million of which were sold in 24 hours. Following launch, PS4 became the fastest-selling console in UK history.

    Wow, I think I'm gonna recommend to al buddies that want a PS4 to import one from the UK. Even at 350 it's a 100 difference!

    just when you think it couldn't sell any faster. Good luck, once those suckers hit the shelves they will be gone in 2 seconds.

    All well and good and that but i'd much rather see more places doing better deals on games...

    Paying 50 each for games that are still a flat $60 in the States has meant i've MASSIVELY cut back on my preorders, I honestly thought before the launch that they were just place holder prices to shield themselves from underpricing them.

    Are they just as bad elsewhere in Europe? I'm almost positive it is...

    Don't go around believing that Great Wizards solve all your problems, because there aren't any and they don't and I should know because I'm not one...

    Wow man, do alot of people still buy video games at that price there? Because the only reason it's $60 here is because there is no way anyone nowadays would pay more, yet alone $20 dollars more lol.

    Americans have almost always got the better deals, nothing new under the sun. We (swedes) pay between 55 ($90) and 60 ($100) for new PS4 games here (most of the time). And the prices are about the same for PS3 games, just a little bit lower maybe. On top of that americans get more games and they get them earlier than us. And they have more services on their PSS.
