Sony has announced their plan to drop the official price of PS4 in Japan from 39,980 yen to 34,980 yen. This essentially translates to a drop from 333.9793 USD to 292.21 USD. It is unknown whether this price drop will be announced for any other region or if it is exclusive to the Japanese market.
PlayStation 4 hasn’t received the same success as its predecessors in Japan. The console has been struggling to reach the sales of PlayStation 3 during similar time frame. Hopefully this price drop can help in increasing the sales of the consoles in Japan.
