The first pre-order page for the PlayStation 4 with a price is up and you may want to sit down for this. According to the page the PlayStation 4 is going to set you back R8300 on launch day.
But don’t panic too much right now, that price is from an Australian retailer and we have covered their excessive pricing on many occasions before. The Australian Dollar price they are listing is $899
But when the PlayStation 3 was released it was priced at $999 in Australia at first so this huge price may actually be a good sign for us locally.
If I recall correctly the PS3 was released at just over R6000 locally and as such we can expect a R1000 to R1500 cheaper launch price. Giving us a R4500 to R5000 launch which would be very hard to ignore in the run up to Christmas.
So what price would make it impossible for you to not buy a PlayStation 4 when it is released?
