Best Buy is selling the console for just $349.99 in a trio of configurations, including the "glacier white" version of the console that includes a copy of Bungie's Destiny. That's $100 off the regular asking price for the white PS4 Destiny bundle.
Should I buy another one?
Damn thats a steal. Wish it was another game but still for that price. U cant go wrong.
You can also get the other bundle for that price.
Am I the only one annoyed PS4 and Xbone get awesome deals while the Wii U has barely any awesome deals. The only decent one I saw was $250 at Target. Right now if I did not have an Xbone I could get it for the same price as a Wii U with one of the biggest games this holiday, that is just ridiculous IMO. They always charge pretty much full price for games they could at least do a nice system deal...oh well will probably still pick one up this weekend maybe I will get lucky and find a deal then. PS4 will be the one for me too buy next year, probably when a limited edition console comes out. It has been a pretty crazy season with all these epic sales for games.
Nintendo is like Apple. Pay there price or get something else. There are no deals and no price reductions.
Since when does Nintendo decide at what price Best Buy, or any other retailer, sells their hardware? You think Sony had anything to do with this? Most likely it's because Best Buy has a shit ton of these in stock (my local store does - it's where I got my Destiny bundle last month) and they need to move them. Sony gets paid whether Best Buy sells these at $449.99 or $99.99.
nintendo cares about one thing mostly, being profitable. they also get less revenue from third party software than the ps4 and xbox one. plus when you take into consideration they dont get revenue from online multiplayer its obvious they are the last ones to give out deals. after all gaming is their only real source of revenue. its not like microsoft who can afford to take losses since they make billions from other sectors like windows. but yes, i am slightly annoyed because i would be more inclined to get a wii u if prices dropped more.
On the other hand, Nintendo has almost always had a profit on day one business model for selling their machines. Until this generation Sony and Microsoft were selling at a loss in the beginning. At over two years in Nintendo has room to cut the console price. Its just a matter of whether or not they are financially in a position to do so as a company.
Wii U needs a price cut desperately.. It's been on the market two years, it's not selling well, it's time.
It's been selling great this year and the price is more than perfect. Maybe you should get a job if you can't afford it or some common sense if you think that it's too expensive when both the other consoles are more expensive than it...
I have a job. The Wii U is not worth $300 when the other consoles can be had starting at only $50 more, and both are far more powerful, have bigger software libraries and active 3rd party support. It's the worst-selling console in Nintendo's history-- coming off the massive success of this Wii, this is just disastrous. No wonder they've already announced they are working on a successor.
They had to match MS i wonder why they didnt do it earlier
These are just individual stores promotions as it really has nothing to do with either Sony or MS just like you can get 2 free games of your choice with a PS4 or XB1 on Balck Friday from Walmart and Target and those Buy 2 get one Free game deals that pops up around the holidays. Stores use promotions like this on a daily or weekly basis to lure in customers to their sites and stores. I think MS also have one yesterday with the Assassin's Creed Bundle and a $50 gift card from Best Buy.
they dont have to do anything ps4 OWNS europe,asia,south america and australia xbox can have the U.S it wont change a thing
the stores want to clear out all their excess ps4s before Christmas thats why u see this sale so late
ohh desperate sony../s
This reaks of desperation!
Wish this was the price on BlackFriday. Right now I'm done with my Xmas shopping and I have no money left to make a big purchase. Maybe when I get my income tax.
nice but to bad i just get my third ps4 gta 5 + the last of us remastered bundle + 60 gift card from amazon all for $450 free next day shiping even when i already have gta5 i will use it as a gift and i was thinking to get the white ps4 for my girlfriend maybe i will get it but no matter if i cant get one for $350 i will get one for her. but i think the ps4 is selling well without reducing the price but is nice to see this kind of deals
