PlayStation 4 ‘unofficially’ arrives in Pakistan for $900, games and accessories cost $100+

PlayStation 4 just launched in United States but this didn’t stop people/retailers in different parts of the world from importing the PlayStation 4 and its games to their country. Interestingly enough, the cost is pretty high as compared to the official cost. Gaming enthusiasts exist everywhere and Pakistan is no exception here.

The PlayStation 4 can be yours in Pakistan for a premium price of 96,750 PKR($900) and its accessories and games are also on sale for more than 10,750 PKR ($100). You can check it out in images below.

While the price might seem high to most of the people, this is one of the many perks of owning a console so close to launch. What matters here though is that the console is not a defective one – because if it ends up as defective, they can’t really get their refund or claim their warranty – since there is none.

The price at launch might seem a lot but it will soon go down as more units are imported in Pakistan or once the console launches officially in middle east. The PlayStation 3, for example, was being sold at approximately $1162(not counting the inflation), when it originally launched.

What do you think of this price? Do you think paying a premium price for getting a console at launch is worth it or not? Let us know in the comments below.

Stay tuned to GearNuke for latest news and info on PlayStation 4.

    @Dave I do like your enthusiasm when commenting but the figures u took out are from the Internet and those are old and value or dollar is different now then it was then
    In the cities of Pakistan people can afford it like everyone or most people here can afford a good laptop but in the rural areas they cannot that is true.
    But other than it its not good say things like no one can afford it here and every one is dirt poor that sir is a mistake, if you come here you will see the shops packed all the time so if you dont have that much first hand knowledge then you shouldn’t comment.

      in america you don’t have to be really rich for owning a pc, laptop, ps3, xbox or even a fucking smartphone. Everyone owns an iphone in the U.S or a Samsung S3 or some other high end phone. While In your country Iphones and shit are out of everyone’s leagues. I mean even 3g is not available in you shitty country yet and you actually have the nerve to talk about India where 4g is out and widely available?! I belong to a middle class family. And it took me 2 years to finally be able to afford a mid range pc. Consoles have never been affordable for me. I have never been able to afford a nice phone. A fucking used 2004 model toyota passo here costs around 9 to 13 lakhs while in america you can buy a 2008 model for 2500$+. So fuck your country. I live in it. And i won’t leave the slightest chance of getting out from this shit hole slip away from my hands.

      • Dr. Wajahat Shah

        In your country half of your population cannot afford medical. The most expensive op in pakistan costs around 70000 usd. The same would cost 400k+ in your country :).
        P.s if you cant even earn enough to get out of this country how lame are you. My maids husband just left for a 6month work visa to malaysia. Lol.
        Yes i have 4 maids 3 drivers 4 cars a bunglow. And earn less than 2000 usd a month. Thank you very much

        • Samqam

          ahh your country? What do you mean by that ‘Dr’ Wajahat Shah? I am from Pakistan myself. So you don’t have to tell me whats wrong and what is not. Tell me in america all unemployed people are taken care of by the Govt. with being paid by the Govt. if you are well educated. Does that happen in your country? . At least in america people don’t have to go to the extend of selling dog and donkey meat just cause they are poor and have a family to feed. And as far as being concerned about medical and health bill it is not even that much of a big issue. People stay healthy in america cause they are provided with much hygienic food unlike the type of food that we are provided here, and you got 4 maids 3 drivers 4 cars and a banglow while you are earning less than 2000$ a month..lmao! keep the bullshit back in your pocket so called Doc. My dad earned almost 2500$ a month back when he was not retired in NBP. And even with the facility like not having to pay medical bill and letting the bank covering that we were not able to save money up to buy a banglow or even an extra car. And this was back when your general fucking musharraf was ruling the shithole so yeh back then prices weren’t even that high. So next time when you throw bullshit like you got 4 iphones and shit..Think about what you’re saying. Cause just the price of those phones that you stated exceed 2000$.

      • Dr. Wajahat Shah

        Oh yes and my in my family we hAve 2 iphone 4s one iphone 4 one s3… All paid for full without any dataplan my friend. Lets not use bad language and insult people. I am a doctor. One golden rule is no matter how big u are or how good your life was. Everybody dies. Dirt is good. It makes us remember what our ultimate destination is

  • GUEST

    Dave you dirty Indian SOB. Get your ugly Ghandi ass out of here and drink some cow ****.

  • Asad Malik

    You guys are seriously misguided.Stop bitching sitting in your couches in the USA.Pakistan is home to financially strong lower/upper middle class as well as the rich.It is not Pakistan’s fault that consoles havent been launched officially here but we can easily afford buying ps4 for 800 dollars( its a waste though ).But i dont consider this inflated premium to be worth buying so i will wait till the prices settle and till then rock my games on r9 290.People calling us dirt poor lolz,please get a life and stop nagging once in your life.USA is using drones,we are complying cuz we considered you as an ally but what an ally US is i.e droning its own allies.We are amongst the top 15 countries in defense and warfare,you dont dare invade without taking into account the consequences

    • Samqam

      yeh we are such a high end country. In U.S.A a person can’t even escape crossing from a red signal light. It is chased down no matter how much he tries to escape or resist. while in your shitty top 15 categorized country in defense and warfare has got multiple bombs going off in a single city killing 30+ people, civilians being targeted and shot dead, people getting slaughtered in one of your own countries by your own army.and still no one knows about it, no one is questioned and no one gets caught lol. Still you have the nerve to think so high about this shithole of a country?! shut yo dumbass up. Your country was sold way back in 1947 when indian’s migrated here. Your shitty atom bomb can only go as far as Indian. So keep your speech of bullshit back in your pocket friend. We live in one of the worst counties ever. Deal with it. Your country is only good enough to slaughter civilians in its own state and silenece those who stand up against your Govt.

      • Dr. Wajahat Shah

        why are you so angry … ? And at what.. Enjoy your life. Leave those whom you cant help, and help those whom you can.

      • Your daddy

        Yeah I would run my mouth from so far away bitch so suck your bosses cock as you daily do
        And enjoy your zombie life capitalist bitch

        • Samqam

          i am not far away mr fuck stain. I am from Pakistan living in Karachi right now in D.H.A. And a zombie life? lmao Its you who is living a zombie life you blind piece of shit. Grab your fucking brain out of your ass and put it back in your head. Pledging allegiance to a govt. who fucks you deep your turd every day with increasing prices by every fucking minute and you have the nerve to say shit about other countries. Look at the fucking mirror before you talk shit about other people or their countries SON <==that is what your nick should actually be.

    • Ben A

      that’s where all the playstation and its fanboys belong.

  • Guiseppe Mario Mazzola

    That’s a lot of money if u ask me for them thats a dirt poor country.

    • Sikandar

      u dont know anything about our country…

      • Dave

        what he meant to say was, “that’s a lot of money that a few wealthy paki’s are paying when they should be developing their country and helping the vast majority of their countrymen who are dirt poor.”

      • Dave

        he obviously doesn’t, otherwise he’d know that no one can even afford dirt in Pakistan.

      • dave

        There is a small elite of very very rich Pakistanis who will buy the PS4 and can easily afford it even at $1000, all these elite families come over to the UK and US to get educated, so love the rich western luxuries we enjoy like console gaming…

        but for 95% of the rest of the Pakistan, they are very poor and earn an average of $1200 per year according to my internet searching.

        • Dr. Wajahat Shah

          Agreed. So what ? Can you help us… Please donate to USAid program for the betterment of the poor in this country 🙂

    • Usman Khan

      lol. our government might be poor but most of people here are very rich too. but ye 900$= 90k pkr ths just too much, wish i have money to buy at launch :(. well i’ll be buying when its available @ 350-400$

      • Dave

        your government is so poor, it let’s other countries invade it for grant money

        • Usman Khan

          well ofc, its better thn selling USA to Israel 🙂

          • Dave

            it’s better to be invaded and have your citizens droned to death than to sell property on the open market? No, it is not. Besides, it is impossible for Israel to buy the US when Israel’s GDP isn’t even 2% of the US’s GDP, and it is insane to think otherwise. You are anti-Semitic and inhumanly callous to the plight of the innocent people killed by the drone strikes.

          • Abdullah Shah

            Most of the Pakis are dumb bitches Dave, they think like this just because some Jews are Billionaires and live in ‘Murica. P.S the conditions in 3rd world countries can never be good.

          • Samqam

            finally someone who is muslim, maybe from pakistan and is wide awake of how much of a shitty country pakistan is.!

    • KuchikiSentou

      You know so little; if you haven’t been, stfu

      • Dave

        Pakistan’s Human Development Index states that about 60% of its population lives on less than 2USD a day. source: Wikipedia, bitch! who needs to visit a horrible country when they can research it on the internet and decide not to go based on scientific data?

        • KuchikiSentou

          Nothing scientific about that. Just because you read numbers off a page doesn’t make it “scientific”.
          Who designed this HDI? Did YOU verify its claims before mouthing off some random numbers?

          • Dave

            The HDI is recorded by the United Nations Development Program. Anyone can verify its data on their public webpage, which this website does not let me link. any more questions?

          • KuchikiSentou

            “Verification” is simply reading the arbitrary numbers some neo-conservative group trumped up.

          • Dave

            Pakistan is a member of the Security Council. Are you accusing Pakistan of misrepresenting data to its own’s detriment?

          • KuchikiSentou

            SC membership is ephemeral and irrelevant.

          • Dave

            as is your reply

        • KuchikiSentou

          Plus, that’s 200 rupees.
          You can’t use your arbitrary standards to gauge another person’s. It’s equivalent not equal.

          • Dave

            the price of the ps4 (96000 rupees) is more than most Pakistanis have to spend in 480 days. your logic fails you.

          • KuchikiSentou

            You’re the one gauging the wealth of a country by measuring how many people can buy a PlayStation that is NOT officially released in the country.
            Don’t talk of logic if you can’t apply it yourself.

          • Dave

            Why are you changing the debate’s point of contention? 96000 rupees is too much to pay for a playstation when the majority of Pakistan’s population couldn’t afford it if they spent their entire year’s wages on it.
            And if you want to gauge the wealth of a country, you can simply compare it’s GDP. But what I think you want to gauge is Pakistan’s standard of living, which is recorded by the UNDP in the HDI and ranks Pakistan 125th out of 170 countries.

          • KuchikiSentou

            There is no debate here. Especially when the subject matter is not officially in the country. It’s clearly an exaggerated price so your conjecture is irrelevant.
            It’s always a smaller population that purchase premium products; especially in other countries with extensive credit systems.

          • Dave

            900USD is not an exaggerated price. That is close to the price that many PS4s are being resold for in the US because it is sold out. When the console does come to Pakistan, what difference does it make when it sells for 40000 rupees instead of 90000? It is still well out of the reach of anyone except the “smaller population that purchases premium products.” And that credit system is an expression and resource of a higher standard of living.

          • KuchikiSentou

            And the credit system that leads to a credit crunch and evictions forclosures and prolonged unemployment.
            Buying something on credit means you can’t afford the actual value. Don’t fool yourself.

          • Asad Malik

            You are an ignorant fool.People buy PCs worth a grand here,PS4 is dirt cheap for them once it is launched officially.Half or the population can easily buy this product and quarter can afford it.We don’t normally buy stuff on installments like your impoverished credit system.The buying power in Pakistan is good here.Even if someone earns 7000 dollars a year here he can even save some money.Thats not happening in USA.You guys spend 50k dollar/year on you living expenses we spend less than a quarter of that.We live in houses not apartments your avg rent is $ 600(2 bed hutch) here its $ 150.You do the math.Dumbo as you are.You haven’t even steped in this country and are claiming grossly absurd statements.

          • Samqam

            ..150$ a portion? lmao Don’t fucking lie dude. I am in karachi and i was paying fucking 21 k for an apartment in a really shitty area near Korangi road in karachi 3 months back. And it was just a 2 bed apartment. Had fucking water issues. and no elevator service or car parking or anything. and you are saying you spend less then 50$ on living expenses. Bitch shut the fuck up..Having a lame thing called an Air conditioning is considered as a fucking luxury in your country. And soon buying chicken meat will also turn into a luxury cause the prices are raising by every minute, yeh minute that is how it feels like. I fucking bought chicken for 220Rs. per kg a week ago and now its for 373Rs So shut the fuck up you liar. Your country isn’t cheap at all. If you can’t be an honest citizen then at least try to be an honest Muslim.

          • Dave

            Who the hell said that the majority will buy it? Wow you conformist piece of shit.

  • dave

    Some ‘rich boy’ Pakistanis are for a real treat!
