Its seems Sony is not letting Microsoft have any room for success as they have lowered the price of the PS4 console for Black Friday to $299 to match the Xbox One. This was an announcement made by John Koller, Vice President of PlayStation Brand Marketing at SCEA. in his statement he said the following.
“Thanksgiving is a time for family, a lot of turkey, a ton of football, hours of gaming, and amazing Black Friday offers. Well, Thanksgiving is only days away and we know that many of you are thinking of buying a PS4 for yourself or someone special this holiday season. If you were watching football yesterday, you probably saw our commercial featuring the games that demonstrate how PlayStation is the best place to play this holiday. It also featured the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection PS4 Bundle, which will be available at $299.99 in the U.S. for Black Friday weekend only, starting Thursday and extending through Cyber Monday.”
The bundle includes a 500GB PS4 system and the single-player campaigns for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. This is a great way to promote the Uncharted series right before the release of the highly anticipated Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End on March 18, 2016.
As the console war continues for Sony and Microsoft the real winners are us the gamers. This tug of war should be something fun to watch.
