Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced that it is cutting the price of its flagship games console, the PlayStation 4, by approximately $50 in North America.
As a result of the price reduction, the console will now retail for $349.99 in the U.S. In addition, the PS4’s price has also been slashed in Canada, bringing the MSRP to $429.99 CAD. Both price cuts will be effective as of tomorrow, October 9.
SCEA CEO and President, Shawn Layden, commented: “Our goal at PlayStation has always been to offer the best place to play at a compelling value to gamers. We’re continuing to deliver on that commitment with this new price for PS4, making the console even more accessible to a broader audience this holiday. With highly anticipated games like Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront launching soon and blockbuster exclusives like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End on the horizon, there has never been a better time to join the PS4 community.”
