Figured the BO3 bundle would be premium priced. Will likely be $100 over standard MSRP by the time it releases. Not gonna have a big impact at that price ($50 more than the standard for about two years now).

The bundles are only $50 over the standard consoles, so if Sony does a pricedrop in the US then i'd expect them to drop the bundle prices as well. So they should drop to $400 if they do a $50 cut.

Then you are getting a brand new game plus double the HDD space and limited edition console + controller for $50 more. Not gonna happen.

The bundle will be $100 more just like it was for Xbox One.

I thought it was released late last week that the OG PS4 will get a price drop to $299. Did I dream this?

No, not with this bundle being $450.

Imo, this implies $350 500GB ps4. This does not in any way imply there will be a standalone 1TB console in the near future.

It's not unthinkable if he means standalone 500GB for $299 and 1TB for $350.

This bundle is $450 for a seemingly limited edition console, which Sony usually takes $50 extra for + Black Ops 3 for $50.

My current 2 TB PS4 says they took too long.

Exactly. This should really only appeal to new customers who aren't aware that you can slap a 2TB drive in for ~$70. I mean if you're already paying a premium over the 500GB model, why stop at only 1TB?

You could be right if the BO3 console has a special design. If it's a stock console with a bigger harddrive, then I could see it being $400 if there's a $50 pricecut. The stock consoles with a game are $400 right now. The bump in price only comes when there's a LE console involved.

I thought it was released late last week that the OG PS4 will get a price drop to $299. Did I dream this?

There was a pricecut in Asia and there will be one in the UK in October, but nothing official for the US at this point.

1TB COD BO3 LE same price as 500GB SW BF LE makes me think that COD console will be standard and the "LE" comes from the 1TB HDD.

that is what I meant.

although he does have a point - doesn't seem like there's an indication that there'll be a standalone 1TB release here.

Finally catching up to Europa.

Exactly. It's amazing how poor SCEA is at competing vs. SCEE. I still expect SCEA to be taken completely off-guard by Microsoft's holiday bundle, much like they were last year. Fortunately, SCEE will be killing it this holiday season.

i dont think sony cares that much. with the state the rest of the company is in, bottom line for them is profits. i dunno if a price drop right now actually makes them more money than staying at 399. no need to devalue the console if thats the case. at least not til the holidays.

I don't see what the point is though. In the end it'll be in your best interest to upgrade to 2TB.

If the 1TB PS4 is 50 dollars more expensive than the 500GB, then you're only spending 50 more dollars for 2TB.

I still don't understand why people don't just upgrade their hard drives. It takes 2 seconds. Granted these work out to be a bit cheaper, but to have waited THIS LONG to get a PS4 simply because of HDD space when it's such a quick and easy upgrade is mind boggling.

or get a cheap 500gb model, swap out the hdd for 2tb, and then party time.

What you and other people seem to be missing here is that this is probably a 1TB LE Call of Duty bundle not just a regular 1TB PS4, can a mod change the title?

This. Pickup one of those Seagate Backup Plus slim's (mouthful) with a 2TB samsung drive inside. Swap it with the one in your PS4 and done,2TB PS4 and a use for your 512GB in the form of a USB 3.0 portable HDD. An extra 1TB and a portable HDD for less than the difference between the 512GB and the 1TB models.

Because this PS4 might be a BO3 LE PS4.
