The PS4 should come out with a $400 bundle.

We see the xbox one just come out with a xbox one titanfall bundle that comes with xbox one, titanfall game and kinect camera for $450. Sony price advantage over xbox one has disappeared now.

I wouldn't mind seeing a PS4 bundle with the new batman game or infamous second son for $400. I would even pay $450 for a PS4, a real good game and the PS4 camera. Right now, it would cost me like $520 to put that together. Plus I think I will have to add a much larger hard drive so that is another expense.

ps4 is 400 dollars why would they release a bundle for the same price as the stand alone, ya i think we would be looking at 429 or something , a little higher much like they did last gen , even if they did whats the difference their already hard to find

With the way PS4's are selling, they have no need to whip up a money-saving bundle. It would be great for us and everything, but they really aren't that desperate.

That isn't an official $450 price, its just discounting by three major retailers. Sony and no company responds to temporary sales by retailers.

Just for the console.

No they shouldn't. With how popular it us they could increase the price and it would still sell like wildfire

They're hard enough to find as it is, if they drop the price any further they might as well do another midnight launch for the console it'll be that successful.

I know Sony PS4 doesn't need to make a $400 PS4 bundle because it is selling like hot cakes. I think xbox one did the right thing with their $450 bundle (if they keep that price). I remember PS4 being the clear winner when it came to value earlier. Now?

PS4 + camera + game = $520

Xbox One + kinect + Titanfall = $450

$70 price difference is huge..... I just wanna see PS4 bundle with infamous second son or new batman game and HOPEFULLY 1 TB HARD DRIVE but that would be wishful thinking! I would happily plop down $400 for it.

They won't lower the price or bundle for a while. No need to. You'll prob see retailers do specials around the holiday season, or maaaybe Sony will bundle a game or something in the holiday season.

PS4 is already selling at a loss for Sony while XB1 is/was selling at a profit for MS. With the way that PS4 has been selling, I don't expect there to be a price cut anytime soon except for a holiday bundle (which I don't consider that soon). It would be great for gamers if there is, but I just don't see it happening.

Right now, PS4 is making a little profit as it cost $381 to make a PS4. If Xbox One does the Titanfall bundle for $450, they would be taking a big loss considering the xbox one with kinect alone cost $471.

I'd still rather have PS4 for $400n than the Titanfall Bundle at $450 though. So nah I don't see the point and don't see that happening any time soon.

And right now I have both consoles. Thinking about sending back the XBOX but idk.

In terms of hardware build it's a slight profit but when factored in with shipping and fees I'm pretty sure it's a loss not a significant loss but maybe a slight loss. I honestly don't think they are making a profit on hardware sales of the PS4, break even at best imo.

@BH14: The PS4 is a reasonably priced computer. Second Son is computer quality graphics and Xbone is still pushing last gen visuals. PS4 could be priced at $600 reasonably. I can't stand people that want something for nothing. It's usually the people that are too lazy to get a job.

They aren't as desperate as MS and Nintendo are this generation. It's not going to happen this year dude

You are out of your mind if you think $600 for a ps4 is reasonable price. You said "Something for nothing"? When did $400 ever get the label as "nothing"? We are talking about a $400 game system. Add one game, another controller and eye camera...... $580 plus tax..... Only like $630...... That is "nothing"? Sorry but I would rather spend my money on more important things. I need to see a decent value before getting a ps4. Lets not forget adding a 1 tb hard drive because 500gb is way too small. Puts that entire package with 1 game to $700..... Nothing?!

XBOX One is failing miserably so that's why they have these sales. It is a failing system. Microsoft is a horrible gaming company. Wanted to end used games and make the Kinect mandatory but had a huge backlash. Still can't climb themselves out of the BS they dug themselves into. Now they're just treading water and trying to sell all these consoles and bundles at a significant discount.


They are failing and that's the bottom line. Sony is doing very well and doesn't need to sell a bundle like the hurting MS XBOX One.

No need for a bundle. It's selling well.

PS4 comes with free games from the PSN network and will continue to give free games each month...and don't give me the "for a fee" BS since you can't even play titanfall without live even if you buy a retail copy
