French retailers have also started advertising the PS4 with a lower starting price, as can be seen in the image below.Sony announced an official US & Canadian price-cut a few weeks ago. Through the price drop, Sony is probably looking to increase sales the coming holidays. Although the PS4 has been selling extremely well over the past year, Sony’s 1st party line-up is a little thin this year. Even Sony’s Yoshida called the PS4 sales “ironic in a sense”.
According to Sony, their goal at Playstation has always been to provide the best gameplay experiences at the best value, and they feel the new compelling price will open the doors to even more gamers that have yet to purchase a system.
