PlayStation 4 PS4 Price Drop Asia

Do we still think that Sony's not going to drop the price of the PlayStation 4 globally before the holidays are over? Hot on the heels of Japan's recently revealed RRP reduction, the platform holder has announced that it will be cutting the cost of its new-gen system across Asia, with the likes of China, Hong Kong, and Korea all set to benefit from the strategy.

While the East has been the appliance's weakest region since launch, we reckon that this foreshadows a similar reveal for the West at Paris Games Week next month. The manufacturer will not want to see the momentum of its machine slow, and a small price drop – what's looking like $50 at the moment – would keep it at its record breaking best through the holidays.
