PS4, where every price cut is Black Friday.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Is this a holiday in South Korea, or just a random promotion?

This makes no sense. This is a temporary promotion and not even as good as the BF PS4 deal. Japan and many EU countries had temporary promotions already. These Asian counties like Taiwan and SK didn't get their promotions yet and there getting them now. And the response has been mega. 



If they don't want to be massively down year over year they need to do a price cut.



This is crazy to see. Big price reductions, but we're now in the 6th year of the platform being out. I would expect price cuts to help, but not create a craze like this.

They're going to start to be massively down regardless of that. The thing is going to b e 6-years-old this year. Can't stay up forever.



                                                                                                                                            

That being said, the install base of consoles that are not handheld have been VERY bad in SK ever since they actually started coming over around 2003.
And the PS4 hasn't drawn this much interest in South Korea at LAUNCH DAY. So... Good.
