I'd say two years. That's how long most other consoles take before receiving any form of price drop

Both the PS3 and PS2 had price drops 1 year after launch. 

The PS3 had a $100 price drop just in time for November on its anniversay of its launch.

The PS2 had a $50 price drop the following year from its March launch

For the PS3, its been having price drops of $50 nearly every year following its launch and the debut of hardware revisions with larger drives.

Remember, we came from a $599 price tag, to a $199 price tag

Realistically, can anyone see a piece of hardware like the PS4 for $299 one year later. At the very earliest holiday 2015 and that's pushing it.

I think the first price cut will probably be 2 years or less after launch but it's probably going to be a small one like $50. The first major price cut will come whenever the PS4 Slim comes out.

Alright, I realize the console hasn't even came out yet but, I do wonder something... How long till the PS4 has a price drop?

 

Personally I'm thinking not for another 4 years but, that's just me.


If you cannot afford $399 then something is wrong with you.. I am absolutely poor and I still could afford a PS4 with 3 games just takes time and money saving. The price value is set and won't go any lower thank goodness
