In the US, the PlayStation 4 will be cheaper from October 9. Sony’s console will cost you $350 (Rs. 22,800) and come with a copy of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
“If you haven’t made the jump yet, and you’re starting early on your holiday wish list, I have good news – we’re dropping the price of the PlayStation 4 system in the U.S. and Canada,” said John Koller, VP of Platforms Marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) on the US PlayStationblog.”Starting tomorrow, October 9, you’ll be able to pick up PS4 starting at the new price of $349.99 USD / $429.99 CAD (MSRP).”

Limited edition consoles such as the Star Wars Battlefront and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 PS4s have also received a price drop of $50 (around Rs. 3,300). Here’s a full list of the new prices.
A few weeks back Sony had announced a price drop for Japan and a US price cut is the biggest indicator that the company will soon roll out a new discounted price the world over. It comes as no surprise as the PS4 is almost two-years old and has not seen a revised price since its release in 2013.
As for India? A couple of weeks ago we reported that India would be receiving a price drop on the PlayStation 4 mid-October. While Sony India has yet to officially announce this, its retail partners were more than willing to confirm it. It’s just a matter of time before it is made official.
