I imagine in a year you'll be able to find a good deal for one at 299, or 350, it won't be a price drop but a really limited sale.

depends on how good sales are..... PS3 took about a full year after launch before it got its first price drop.... from $599 to $499 on thanksgiving.

IMO, the PS4 is priced right where it should be. I doubt any price drop will happen in the first year if pre-orders are any indication.

If there are more people who are willing to pay the price, then there is little motiviation to lower it anytime soon.

I get you so horked up

This launch is a little different than PS3.

I would say within a year we will see a new 1TB model and alot of bundling.

I can't see any price cut for 3 years unless sales get ugly. Even if Xbone gets a price cut I would say Sony will compensate with bundles.

I know that speculation is a gamers favorite pastime, but can we please at least wait until the PS4 is actually in people's hands and in stores, before anyone starts guessing when there will be a price cut?

Umm...  Honestly you probably won't see a true price drop until 2015-2016

 

Maybe next year if you're lucky next year for Christmas they will do a price dropped bundle?

Not worth waiting, and even then you would be lucky to see it cheaper 2 years in... Maybe a $50 difference with a bundle.

 

I don't know if you guys realized this or not... Console makers do not want to lower prices. They'd rather pack in a larger Hard Drive, a camera, or games and keep the price near the same. 

 

Almost 8 years in and a 360 with Kinect is $300 = Only $100 less than the launch price in 8 YEARS!
