Woah. First instance of a US retailer thinking they might have a little too much excess PS4 stock? It's the retailer that eats the loss with this stuff.
I don't think you usual gamer thinks of going to Sam's club to buy video games. Don't you need a membership just to shop her like Costco?

Unofficial price drops like this are common before official ones. I imagine Sony has to react to MS's Kinectless bundle fast if they don't want to give up another console generation.
they gotta do whatever they can to get to 10 million units sold first

Solid deal, but if you can get one from a seller that doesn't charge tax in your state, the frequent $360 options on ebay end up better.

LOL. Love the "Please take one" on the tag.

Reads like "Please, we can't get rid of these things..."

Tempting deal though. Still going to try to wait until Black Friday. Should be able to pick up a sweet bundle then, or at least match this deal.

I believe that's because the price tag must be taken to the register, in order to claim one.

err they are telling you to only take one because they are only supposed to put out slips for the amount of stock they have...

Hope this is a joke post :p
There won't be an official pricedrop in the upcoming months.
Maybe after E3 2015.
Now? Nope! Absolutely no reason for it.

I know the idea is that places like Sam's and Costco sell stuff wholesale, and only make money on memberships.

Is that actually how it works?
Nah, but they do have lower margins that are made up through larger orders and going after a higher income bracket. Megan McArdle did a good writeup on how Wal-Mart and Costco have radically different business models despite their ostensible similarities a few years ago.
