Sony Computer Entertainment Australia have earlier today announced that the PlayStation 4 model which comes with a 500GB HDD is now available in Australia at a recommended retail price of $479.95 AUD including GST. This is a reduction of $70.00 from its initial RRP of $549.95. There is no indication however of a reduction being made to the 1TB model, which they released earlier this year.
With the holiday season coming up, and major mainstream titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront set to launch over the next couple of months, it seems like Sony Computer Entertainment Australia have begun readying themselves for Christmas.
Jim Ryan | Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and CEO
We are delighted to deliver the PS4 system at its best-ever value just in time for the holiday season, making it more accessible to a broader audience in Europe. With this year’s biggest blockbusters and next year’s best exclusives such as UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End set to thrill players, there has never been a better time to join the PS4 community. Also, watch out for an amazing range of Ultimate Player Edition Bundles including the 1TB PS4 and some of the biggest games of the year, offering even greater value.
