    Starting from February 12th through February 25th, Sony is dropping the prices of select PS4 Slim bundles in the US to $249. You can get the Uncharted 4 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare bundles with the updated Dualshock 4 and 500GB HDD at that price. No info so far on a price reduction in Europe.

    The Nintendo Switch launches on March 3rd in the US for a suggested retail price of $299.

    Pfff good job. They aren't even running the discount through the Switch launch, where it would have made the most sense competition-wise

    No, they want impatient people to spend their savings before the Switch is even out but too soon to save up for Switch launch day.

    You'd have to have an IQ of -4 to even consider doing that.

    We are proud of PS3 and PS4 owner (Sorry Wii U). Anyway.. Nice try, Sony and it is still ugly than we have for PS4 2 years ago. So ugly slim looking, sorry.

    Some places will price match rather than make you do a full return if the price on something drops like that. Check the store policy.

    I can kind of understand that, but from a marketing/competition perspective wouldn't it be best for them to have a PS4 sitting on a shelf next to the Switch at $50 less? That way they could at least do the marketing bs of "Ooo we have the most powerful system on the market* and our console is cheaper than the newest ones**"

    I'm surprised they end the promotion before the Switch launches. It seems like if Sony really wanted to hurt Nintendo here, they'd have the promotion last another week or so.

    I'll pick up a pro when those prices go down, but not before.

    Most retail chains will let you come in within 2 weeks after you bought your product with your receipt, point them to the new promotional price and they'll pay you back the difference so you wouldn't have to return it and buy it again. Target definitely does this, and I'm pretty sure plenty of other bigger chains do as well.

    They should definitely have a very similar policy. Give them a call if you're unsure though.
