Talking Point: Will the PS4 Get a Price Drop at E3 2014?

Push Square: "No convention is complete without some speculation regarding hardware prices. It’s hard to believe that this time last year, the PlayStation 4’s recommended retail price was very much still up in the air, with many expecting Sony to plump up for a more costly figure than its nearest competitor. As it happens, the Japanese giant actually undercut Microsoft, announcing that its next-gen system would sell for $100 less than the Xbox One. Seeing its system slip behind in global sales, the Redmond-based firm has since adjusted the asking fee for its format, announcing a $399.99 model that ships without the Kinect camera included.

No, it doesn't need one. It would be smart from Sony to include either a code for a digital game (Knack, Resogun, etc.) or the PSEye camera into the package though ...the latter would be very helpful to sell PS Move & Morpheus in the near future.

It doesn't need one, the prize is just amazing already, but if it was to get a prize drop, then that's just mind blowing!

I agree. Sony would still be in the same position now if they launched the PS4 with a price point of $499.

Unlikely. A lot of people seem to forget that the PlayStation 4 is only 6 or so months old and early price drops are typically done to try and capture more sales. Considering the PlayStation 4 is selling well and I doubt they would do a massive price drop (if anything I would expect $370 max), there will probably be no announcement of a bundle / price drop with black friday / the holidays getting some sort of deal max.

If the PS4 gets a price drop and GT6 or GT7 Prologue is announced then I am sold.

The price wont drop but there will be your usual bundles for 399€.
