Sony reduces PS4’s price in North America by $50, now starts at $349


Following the price cut in Japan, Sony has reduced the price of the Playstation 4 in North America as well. Similar to Japan, the PS4 in the USA is now $50 cheaper and will now start at $349 for the most basic bundle. This is the first price cut for Sony’s current generation console which launched at the $399 price point back in 2013. In Canada the price has gone from $449.99 CAD to $429.99 CAD.

Here’s what SCEA president and SEO Shawn Lauden had to saw about PS4’s latest price cut:

Our goal at PlayStation has always been to offer the best place to play at a compelling value to gamers,

We’re continuing to deliver on that commitment with this new price for PS4, making the console even more accessible to a broader audience this holiday. With highly anticipated games like Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront launching soon and blockbuster exclusives like  Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End on the horizon, there has never been a better time to join the PS4 community.
