PS4 Price Drop Announced for North America
By Luke Karmali Sony has announced it's cutting the price of the PlayStation 4 in North America and Canada from tomorrow, October 9.
Starting first thing tomorrow, you can pick up the console from the new price of $349.99 USD / $429.99 CAD. Additionally, the company has confirmed the price drop will be reflected in all the hardware bundles coming out this Holiday season.
The $50 USD cut isn't hugely surprising, seeing as retailer Target accidentally leaked it earlier this week. Just last month, Sony announced a PS4 price drop for those in Japan at Tokyo Game Show, leading one to believe a similar discount for other territories was on the horizon.
In fact, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer said he fully expected Sony to cut the price, suggesting a formal announcement would be made later this month during Sony's press conference at Paris Games Week.
