That said, in case we don’t get some shiny new hardware from Sony, at least we’ll finally be able to get an upgraded version of last year’s PlayStation 4 Slim later this month – and we’ll get it without having to spend extra.
Sony announced today that it would begin shipping 1TB versions of the PlayStation 4 Slim for $299 – the exact price of what a 500GB system cost yesterday. Also, not one to waste a prime price-cutting opportunity, Sony’s dropping the price of the old 500GB systems to $249.
The price change looks like it went into effect today with 1TB models to receive stock and the price drop on Thursday, but don’t be surprised if it takes a few days for retailers to catch on and price their wares appropriately.
Does that mean other territories like Australia and the UK are likely to get a price drop of their own? Chances are good that there may be one in the future but, for now, prices for the 1TB model are staying strong at £279 and AU$459.
