Exciting news has surfaced for gaming enthusiasts as the PlayStation 5 (PS5) is reportedly set to receive a temporary price cut. According to Internet super sleuth Billbil-Kun, via VGC, the popular gaming console is slated to become more affordable in several major markets worldwide.
Billbil-Kun, known for his reliable track record in reporting on unannounced developments, disclosed that the PS5 price cut will be implemented in the United States, Germany, and Great Britain. The reported price adjustments are as follows:
- United States: A temporary price reduction of $50, bringing the standard disc-based PS5 system down from $500 to $450.
- Germany: A €75 price drop, bringing the PS5 system down to €480.
- Great Britain: The system is expected to receive a price cut to £405, down from £480.
The temporary price cuts are expected to be effective on the official PlayStation Direct store as well as local retailers. However, the exact date of implementation remains undisclosed at this time, leaving eager gamers awaiting further details from Sony.
It is worth noting that Sony had previously offered an official (temporary) price cut on the PS5 God of War Ragnarok bundle earlier in the year, making this recent development in line with the company’s past pricing strategies. It is yet to be seen whether similar price cuts will be extended to the all-digital PS5 model or bundled packages.
The gaming community eagerly anticipates official confirmation from PlayStation regarding the reported price cuts, and GameSpot has reached out to Sony in an attempt to obtain further details. As the gaming landscape evolves, temporary price reductions present an enticing opportunity for gamers to acquire the coveted PS5 console at more accessible prices.
For PlayStation enthusiasts, it’s worth noting that the PlayStation Store Summer Sale is currently underway, offering deals on thousands of PS5 and PS4 games. Gaming enthusiasts can explore the vast selection of discounted titles to enrich their gaming libraries.
