Hardcore Gamer: It's not often we see successful consoles drop in price so soon after launch, but the PS4 is currently $349 at Sam's Club.
Wow, I wonder if this is signals a new incoming price point to compete with the $399 Xbox One?
Or its just a retailer providing a deal. Those do happen you know.
deals like this for ps4 have been rare or non existent. but way too early for official ps4 price cut.
Its a great deal.
700p is never a good deal.
Poor X1, this wasn't even necessary. Calm down Sony, you're just being mean now.
So does a lower price point you know.
Great deal for anyone looking to pick up a PS4.
'to compete with the $399 Xbox One' hahaha, wow, PS4 is already owning it without a price drop, so no, just no.
I was lead to the same conclusion.
Yeah makes sense? PS4 best selling next gen system even when Xbone drops in price gets a $50 price drop to remain competitive and make Sony lose money with each system sold despite the high demand and profit. I see if I don't use my brain it all adds up. Anyways Sam's Club is not your average retailer they are a wholesale store (primary purpose is to buy in bulk at lower prices) and to my knowledge is membership shoppers only. Correct me if I am wrong though not educated on the matter. So your average gamer would save no money unless of course they were an average Sam's club member taking advantage of their wholesale offers which is probably not the case for most unless you are a caterer or have a family of 5+. The membrship is $45 a year. If I was to come to a conclusion they are not exactly selling or there are simply to many in stock due to all these things I stated so $50 off deal
Why would they need to do that? It's already outselling the xbone.
To keep selling. Not that they need to but it might persuade SAMs shoppers. Sony is on a roll with the ps4.
I think for there to be a competition there has to be some adversity.
The PS4 isn't having any trouble competing at is current price point (made obvious by the lack of any real threat from the X1 in NPD or otherwise). It'r probably just a simple retailer discount.
According to ps4 fans, when deals this good come around they are trying to get rid of excess stock. Those ps4's must be stock piling in the back.
There's a difference with the ps4 though, they are actually selling.
The difference is even microsoft themselves were selling the titanfall and forza bundles for $450 along major retailers as well
Good deal. Hopefully x1 will do $349, I'll buy a second one.
Why Is your first one broken? Or do you want to be able to hook one up to the other so you can say "Xbox play Xbox"
in gamestop today : notice used ps4 selling at 349 so sams club must be selling used ps4 's at 349.00
A piece drop is welcomed by not needed to be competitive.
To compete against the 400$ XB1, you mean the same XB1 that it is destroying in sales? No I think this is one retailer who wants more people to come buy from them, so they offer a price cut on a popular product. Also I am pretty sure that prices is for members which membership coast money. So maybe they hope to attract more members
Crazy, picked up the PS4 for $359.00 from newegs Ebay Store, then Sams trumps them with this price.
If I can come up with the money and Sam's Club can come up with the stock I'll definitely hit it up on this. I've been waiting for a price drop to pick up a PS4 and this would do just fine :D
Just checked their website and it's listed as 399 and also out of stock?
Just went to Sam's Club. It's $449 for the Knack bundle. No other options. This deal might only be available at one store.
@Author "PS4 Drops to $349 at Sam's Club" Read these lines you wrote "The PS4 is currently $349 at Sam’s Club. The deal is on now until August 26." Next time try a title like PS4 on sale instead giving a summary of "It's not often we see successful consoles drop in price so soon after launch". Stop baiting and instead imply that this is nothing more then a sale price. Just saying.
Friend of mine that works for a Sam club, told me they was cutting the price to move the overstock systems, because there not selling.... The type store Sam is having to have a membership to shop, every day mom n dad don't go there..to buy games...that's the only reason.. I can see it now omg!!!! Sony dropping ps4 price they are making money...lol.... Not true SAMs just not selling them like they like to.. How to sell overstock items???? Discount it
That comment is not going to go over well, but it makes sense.
@Macdaddy Yeah you have to pay for a membership to shop at Sam's Club. Why pay for a membership when you can walk in Best Buy or Walmart for free. $350 PS4 is a great deal if you already have a Sam's membership card but if you don't you will have to pay I think $45 so you still gonna pay $400 for a PS4.
I hope it does get lowered so I can afford one. I am close to my goal and I cannot wait to have one in my living room, first games I'll probably get are the ones I saved up from Plsplus (got a year for free on my bday), then when I buy it, probably infamous second son...been dying to play that game!
...the entire point is to get things cheaper from Sam's Club, because you're paying them a subscription. Why was Ps4 EVER $400 at Sam's Club?
thats where i work! it cost money to even get in! haha some membership crap. but its alright i guess at my store all we sell is Xbox One but those like sit there for ages.
Has anyone tried price matching?
No need to rub MS's nose in it, sore winner .
