Images surfaced last week of a Gold 1TB PS4 Slim Bundle at retail giant Wal-Mart for $249. The latest Target confirms that the Gold PS4 is arriving and SOON.
What's the occasion? To hype the console for E3? Not that I'm complaining
lol trying to figure it out myself.
That's a great deal for a 1TB.
Not complaining either. I hope the other half of the rumor is true. A new PS portable would make a lot of sense. I doubt Sony would just let Nintendo monopolize the handheld gaming market.
Wait, so does the Pro come down too -- $349....?
The signs seem to be pointing in that direction.
Would of been better if it was a ps4pro gold. And not a regular slim.
hmmmmm......MS press conference is also that date🤔
PS4 permanent price drop incoming,
Maybe its nearly the 15th anniversary of the gold PS2 Slim console or something?
Am I the only one who would love a rainbow colored console?
I gave you an agree, because you are, in fact, the only one who would love a rainbow colored console.
Woot! Loner's circle!
lol I like to think he is only the only person who down-voted you
They had one for some special event. It actually looked nice. Google it.
Gaystation 4 it was called. I'm not joking.
@Griveous That's horrible!
It was called "PS4 Gaystation Edition", but actually, it was a game store in Sweden that put it together for LGBT awareness, Sony really didn't had anything to do with it, physically it was just a custom skin over a standard black PS4. https://static.gamespot.com...
why shud they google it lol when the holy grail N4G shud have posted it for them to see. They not gonna believe you chris jus sayn....
Nope I'm right there with you!
lower it to $99 thing would sell 10+ million in 2 weeks but that would be a huge loss for Sony.
Selling hardware at a loss is nothing new. Sony can make that up using its attach rate, official accessories, Plus/Now subscriptions, etc. Don't get me wrong, I don't see why they should cut into their profits. If their success means more games and more heart into their next generation hardware, I'm all for it.
That'd be a pretty long burn to get that money back. Usually, the loss of a console sale is made up with 2-3 games sold, or with this gen, a yearly subscription charge in some cases. Typically, peripherals return the money when the system is sold though.
It will go down to $199.99 eventually.
if they keep selling at the pace they are currently at, $200 by next year's holiday season is looking very likely
Feels like last week Nintendo was selling the Wii for the same price. Time sure flies.
Decades dont fly by. That's the same price 3DS Vita launched at 6 years ago
Man still remember that, Ps360 vs Wii was crazy back then with Wii putting in ridiculous numbers. Time flies brothers.
I remember family members who don't even like gaming asking me about the Nintendo Wii. Lucky for them Sports was included - good times.
Just to let y'all know who took the gold trophey #winning
249 is an amazing price! I wouldn't guess the Pro will also be receiving a $50 price cut.
Yes , retailers here in NZ are selling them for nearly 100 cheaper, they always promote price cuts as savings first
Amazing for a 1TB.
I regret wasting my money on the Pro.
I don't - the games look great, shame you don't get enjoyment out of it. Buyers remorse is the worst.
I love my Pro, absolutely worth it to take advantage of my 4K tv and to get the most out of PSVR. Even if u don't have a 4K u still get some down sampling, high framerate mode, enhanced grfx modes, and of course boost mode. It has a 1TB and u can stream at higher quality, i just don't see the downside to owning it.
Thats the point. Theres not NEARLY enough games taking advantage of the extra power.
Looks kinda snazzy! And i don't usually like gold stuff.
"Save $50 Reg. $299.99" It's not calling a price cut but sale price
I know everything gets a story these days but I really can't stand new color articles. Nintendo, MS, Sony, it doesn't matter Oh, and imo, gold is good for controllers only
It's not just the color but that it will be on sale and possibly be a sign of an official price cut.
@Sm3000 http://www.journaldugamer.c... that's the PS3 that I have. tell me if that is not a nice looking console. I absolutely love mine
It's a 1TB for 249.99, that's the story, not the color.
Why does it have to be gold though? https://m.imgur.com/gallery...
That moment when the article author can't distinguish between "you're" and "your" (below 2nd image)....smh
Honestly, that thing is hideous and tacky...
Still looks miles better than the VCRbox one.
Bro, I have a PS4 Pro and an Xbox One S...both look worlds better than this atrocity...
It's pretty awesome actually. It's also a 1TB for 249.99 which is amazing.
The price is definitely right, better if it was a Pro, but tacky good coloring makes that thing look hideous in any adults tv stand... Must be marketed to kids...
So at what point can someone come in and say "Sony is being desperate"? Cause you know, fair is fair. Could it be that they feel they don't have much to offer at e3 ? Is it to hide the fact that their e3 showing will be lackluster and they'll spin the price drop to say "we have the cheapest blah, blah, blah on the market. And we provide a full entertainment system without breaking your bank." Obviously taking an indirect jab at the soon to be $500-600 Scorpio.... bookmark this comment and come back next weekend after Sony's briefing and see that I was right.😎
Looks like you're the one desperate to make Sony look bad.
You obviously haven't been here long enough to know that whenever there's a price drop on a Microsoft game or product people on n4g are quick to jump on it to say "Microsoft is being desperate"...hence, why I said fair is fair because as you can see, everyone, or mostly everyone is praising this price drop for the ps4 without even giving it a 2nd thought. Hypocrisy at it's finest.
Microsoft was getting smoked on all levels. They did multiple price drops. They extended price drops beyond and crap tons of offers. Sony is in complete control, so you'd have to couple in some other factors before you start throwing out desperation claims. If you can't see the difference, well I don't know what to tell you.
Microsoft's price cuts were a move of desperation and that's a fact. See you in a week 😜
I'll come back next week and find out you're still a salty doofus.
The ugliest console in history.
Correct. The original model anyway. The 1S at least righted some of those wrongs. And to be fair, that f****** monstrosity of a PS3 with the blu ray drive cover that you slid over ran the XBone close for the title.
That thing is hideous.
Taking the price and specs aside from this......... that Gold is Bleurrrghhh! Anyone who buys it in that colour will forever look like Goldmember in my eyes, full comb over and everything!
Where can I find switch for 300. Its 400+ in my country and even amazon!!
10/10 would buy... Probably will buy
that is a fantastic price....but really hoping I can find that same price with 1TB drive for white. I have no desire to buy a gold colored console.
Oh ya horizon zero here I come
Sooo if the scorpio comes out at 449 the pro will still be 100$ cheaper... And most likely come with a packed in game. I sold my pro for 350 because of school and i needed the $$ but i could def see myself picking it up again at 349. And god help nintendo if they stay at 299 vs a 349 ps4 with superior online and a pcked in game. Above: In all reality i think consoles should drop 50$ annually. Nintendo are the only ones that dont follow these practices.
