    I've been on the fence for a long time about buying a PS4 for a while. I've got a PC and a bunch of other consoles so having as PS4 wasn't a necessity but more of my friends are playing PS4 online plus our old PS3 just blew up.
    I was wondering if you think a price drop for the PS4 will happen this year? Right now a 500g PS4 is retailing around $400.

    It won't go below 200 during holiday sales for the slim. they need to keep making profit until end of life.

    Holiday season and price matching there were ample opportunities at target for a ps4 slim 1TB below $160, and for PS4 Pro you could get one for about $300 if you had a Meijer in your state or from target about $320.

    If you're looking for cheap PS4s, I see original PS4s going for $100-150 used all the time, though that's just here in the US.
