Sony Will Cut PS4 Price To $249 and PS4 Pro Price To $349 This Holiday, Says Michael Pachter

‘Sony will keep its price advantage this Holiday.’

Posted By | On 15th, Jul. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


Although Sony has had a great 2017 so far, the PS4 has no major AAA  exclusive games penned for release this Q4, except Gran Turismo Sport. In a way, Gran Turismo Sport has a huge responsibility of pushing the PS4 sales further for all the important Holiday season. Things become even more challenging if one puts Forza Motorsport 7 into the equation.

So the PS4 may not be getting as many Holiday exclusives as the Nintendo Switch or even the Xbox One this Holiday- but against the latter, at least, it should have no problem holding its own, according to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter. Pachter believes that despite having just one big exclusive, Sony will counter the Xbox One X and Switch by dropping the PS4 and PS4 Pro’s price.

‘I don’t think Microsoft is all that competitive,’ Pachter said. ‘Xbox One S is priced the same as the PS4, and I don’t think they are competitive at all with the Xbox One X, currently priced at $100 more than the PS4 Pro, and highly likely to be priced $150 more than the PS4 Pro by Holiday. My guess is, Sony will cut the everyday PS4 price to $249, and the PS4 Pro price to $349 this Holiday, and Microsoft will be too expensive, so Sony will keep its price advantage this Holiday.’

A price cut sounds like the simplest, easiest thing Sony can do to cushion the impact of the Xbox One X- plus, doing so will also make the differences between the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X less pronounced, since they will be priced appropriately, too. It would definitely be a smart move for Sony.

    Once again this yahoo is just repeating what others have said and claiming it as his own prediction.It’s same prediction every time,one system releases before another so the others price must come down when it does. Once again all Sony has to do is keep the price the same and let the retailers make the price cuts just like before. The only thing you’ll probably get from Sony are Pro bundles.

    Knack 2 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will sell great at launch and through out the holidays.

    • Fweds

      Uncharted lost legacy was just DLC which would of cost you about 15 dollars but of course they have now changed it to a ‘standalone’ title so you have the privilege of paying 30 dollars instead.

  • Mr Xrat

    Price cuts in the holidays? That’s a bold prediction.

    • Fweds

      Your posts are becoming more frequent and erratic the closer it get’s to the Xbox1X launch.

      You are also getting more obvious, look at your Upvote Bot it is giving the ‘same’ amount over time to all your posts here.
      I suggest you get it updated to random time on each vote.

    • Mr Xrat

      And you’ve crawled out of your pit when that mega-important E3 of yours flopped hard, Fweds. What a strange occurrence.

      I spotted yesterday that Xgimp scum like you and the Rooster loser were becoming more shrill and panicky as the full details of the Xbollox’s blunder becomes clearer. I look forward to more of your tears going forward. 🙂

    • Fweds

      10 self fake Upvotes and calling people names like “Scum” because they have a different console to you is not normal.(And both break the T&C of disqus)

      I suggest that whoever looks after you to not allow you access to the internet.

    • hvd hvd

      you need a break from trolling it helps you are running out of good trolls.

  • Mr Xrat

    You do know that includes a new game, right Kirky?
