Phil Spencer: Expect A PS4 Price Drop In America This Year

‘History says a price drop is coming.’

The PS4 has already seen its first official price drop in Japan and Asia at TGS, which was later confirmed for the UK as well; however, the head of the Xbox division at Microsoft, Phil Spencer, told IGN in a podcast interview that he believes that North America will see a PS4 price drop this year as well.

“I fully expect they [PlayStation] will drop price,” Xbox boss Phil Spencer told IGN. “When I think about the playbook they’ve used in the past, we feel good about the plans we have in place going forward in the holiday. If history tells, then we’ll see a price drop from them coming.”

I mean, it’s not rocket science, especially now that the price drop has been confirmed for the UK as well; that, plus the fact that this is the longest a PlayStation system has ever gone without a price drop, as well as the fact that the PS4 has a very weak lineup of exclusive games in the back half of this year, means that a price drop may be almost necessary for the PS4 to maintain its rate of sales this year.

If/when it is officially announced, we will let you know, so stay tuned.

    “the PS4 has a very weak lineup of exclusive games in the back half of this year”

    Phil just had to get that salty jab in. Guess you gotta shine your turd any way you can, when losing the console war to PS4 at 2:1 worldwide.
    I wonder how big a fire sale there’ll be this Black Friday on XboxOne?
    I’m gonna venture you’ll be able to grab a new Xbone this year for $249 (with a bunch of included games.) Maybe even see a $199 deal.
