To prove it isn't sold out... haven't you seem him in every Switch sold out thread proving ebay had it available?

You dont make any sense. Available means to have console at official price point, scalpers that have $100-150 higher price point compared to ofical of course don't count. In any case this is totally different situation, $199 is Black Friday deal and that's actually $100-150 lower price point from official price point, and that price is not available any more, but that doesnt mean that PS4 is generally sold out like some people assume here.

ismt it funny that when it's convenient to you you remember that the PS4 official price is $299/$350?

weren't you just saying in another thread how it's been being sold for $250 for a while now with bundles and bigger HDD?

anyways. I don't get why you are so triggered by it being generally sold out or not. if Sony shipped 1M $199 PS4s to NA for this promotion and all of them are sold out? then it means in addition to however many PS4s were sold at a higher price or pS4pro were sold.... Sony has still managed to sell well over 1M consoles for November. 

The real take away here, is just how well the PS4 still stands to sell at a $199 price tag. 4 years later. just goes to show that this year may not even be its peak year after all

The $199 price (normally $299) is the MSRP for at least 4 more days (today, Sat, Sunday, and Cyber Monday). Wouldn't surprise me if it becomes a new standard price, but it does technically say limited time, but it is the current MSRP for all retailers.

Sony's web site points to 4 online retailers, and 3 out of 4 are out of stock, but best buy is currently in stock. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-playstation4-1tb-console-black/5850905.p for anyone looking for it.



Well I got my black Friday PS4 Pro. $100 off plus Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

Not true...  The $199 is the new MSRP.  It's not just a Black Friday deal except at gamestop where that includes a $50 gift card for $199.

You are saying that $199 is new official price for 1TB model!? Pls link for such a claims.

In a discussion that is about BF and that the deal for BF is unavailable all other can be considered above MSRP. Unless you also want to consider in a 300M country if a single Switch was being sold at MSRP it wouldn't be sold out everywhere....

BF is just a current deal, it's not official price point. And actually some people here think that PS4 is generally sold out, not only $199 version.

In any case, headline of this thread is fixed and now is more accurate.

Yes, I was saying that PS4 1TB and 1TB bundles were regulary selling at $300 and lower price point despite higher regular price point, but I dont see how this is conflicted with this $199 deal that is just for Black Friday.

I am not triggered, I just bringing a clear fact, and that is that PS4 is not generally sold out like some people thinking, and that point is that just $199 BF price tag is not any more available.

In any case, headline of this thread is fixed and now is more accurate.

Could PS4 price drop as low as 150 or 100 during its last years? Then it could maybe reach PS2 numbers if the support is good.

I think in 2020, you might see a 150$ price tag.

By then a new 400$ machine will be out  (~_*) *wink*

Edit: Just refreshed the page, again, and now it's in stock.  Weird.

$200 for the 1TB model is a crazy good deal. That's the kind of deal I would wait for, if I hadn't picked mine up last year.

And now, Best Buy says "Find a Store." That didn't take long.

Edit: Lol, the closest one to me with stock is 75 miles away.
