Sony has cut the price of its PlayStation 4 console down to €349.99/£299.99. The new price is good for Benelux, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain. Australia and Germany can now get the console for $349.95 while the new Australian price is $479.95; New Zealand is $569.95 and United Arab Emirates is AED1399.
The news follows a similar price drop in the US where Sony’s Playstation 4 will now be available at the reduced price of $349.99. The console comes along with a game, according to the Playstation Blog. Previously the base price of PlayStation 4 was $399.99. That’s a total cut of $50.
The new prices come into force tomorrow with the release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, as you’ll be able to pick up a PS4 bundled with the game.
After this, the next scheduled $349.99 bundle drops in mid-November with Star Wars Battlefront.
The cut also applies in Canada with prices starting from CAD429.99, as the chart below illustrates.
