PlayStation 4

It definitely doesn’t look like Sony is going to be taking any chances with their upcoming PlayStation 4 release – with the first price drop already appearing even before the console is released.

Amazon has dropped all their bundles prices by between R65 and R280 bringing you the opportunity to pick up a PlayStation 4 with a copy of Killzone: Shadow Fall, 2 dualshock controllers and a PlayStation eye for the exact same price as the Xbox One by itself.

The current bundles available according to videogamer.com are as follows

Bundle 1: PlayStation 4 + Killzone: Shadow Fall – £384.99 (Previously £389)
Bundle 2: PlayStation 4 + Watch Dogs – £384.99 (Previously £389)
Bundle 3: PlayStation 4 + Killzone: Shadow Fall + Battlefield 4 – £424.99 (Previously £429)
Bundle 4: PlayStation 4 + Killzone: Shadow Fall + Need For Speed: Rivals – £424.99 (Previously £429)
Bundle 5: PlayStation 4 + Killzone: Shadow Fall + 2 DualShock 4 controllers + PS4 Camera – £429.99 (Previously £449)
Bundle 6: PlayStation 4 + Killzone: Shadow Fall + FIFA 14 + 2 DualShock 4 controllers + PS4 Camera – £469.99 (Previously £489)

Now the cynics amongst you will point out that Sony may already be panicking and maybe pre-order sales are lower than expected hence the price drop. Personally (and quite obviously) I don’t think this is a PlayStation price drop but rather an Amazon price drop to take a lead in sales against their competitors.

    Wonder why they didn’t bundle Killzone & Watch Dogs.

      True… Could be a publisher clash. Would be a pretty shweet bundle if it did happen (hell, I’d buy it!).

      That would be an awesome deal man. I’d probably pause playing GTAV for a whole minute… How far are you now? *Runs

        You shut up! Even if it was released on PC today I wouldn’t buy it. I’ll wait a year or two for a good special & all the DLC.

        I’ve read a few people complaining about how the shooting mechanics in GTAV aren’t as good as Max Payne 3. I’m playing that now – the shooting mechanics SUUUUUUUUCK!

            They goddamn do! Try playing it without auto-aim – which is the only way allowed on hard difficulty.

            Every time you pop out of cover you first have to play “spot the barely visible little white dot that is laughably called a targeting reticule.” If you’re lucky the background isn’t white. Otherwise you have to wiggle your mouse around to spot it moving – THEN you can start aiming. Either way, it’s never where your screen was centered before you popped out of cover. And while all that’s going on you’ve got 4/5 guys shooting at you – and they only need 2/3 shots to kill you.

            It gets more frustrating that Dark Souls – at least then when I die it’s because I screwed up, not because I couldn’t see where I was aiming.

          It is not the same! Never will be… I got told but so many SR3 was a great game, sure it is a good game… But Gta V is GREAT! Don’t worry man it is coming out early next year on pc.

            I agree. Make no mistake. But at least I have a friend who’s in the same predicament as myself, so we online SR3 while waiting for GTA V

        Lol! 🙂

        I’m on about 45% now. Finally finishing ALOT of side quests and activities, which means I can get stuck into the main storyline again. But I still find myself inordinately distracted by the world around me in that game – just SO much to do!

        And you? How’s your game going?

    I think, more than likely, Sir Gavin (no genuflection!) is correct: Amazon is behind this. Else it would be across the board.

    Totally agree with you Gavin – the price drops are too small to be the manufacturer’s (usually, MS and Sony would drop the price by at least R500 or more… Minimum). Especially the whole “.99” for each price – smells like retailer pricing. 🙂

    But some of those bundles sound awesome! Wonder if we’ll see them on this side of the World?

    wtf wants a ps4 eye?
    stop trying to push the useless tech on us kinect is useless no games will be made for it, so stop trying to push the same crap on play station people. The reason xbox sucks is it comes bundled with this useless stuff and just adds $100 to the price

    Meanwhile in South Africa, colluding retailers (and a dodgy distributor) will only drop the price of the PS4 at launch…. when hell freezes over.

    Seems like a quick reaction to the UK retailer who recently predicted the One would outsell the PS4.
