Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) computer entertainment system with 500GB hard disk drive (HDD), originally priced at €399 will now be available in European region at the new recommended retail price of €349.
Demonstrating strong support from 3rd party developers and publishers, upcoming PS4 software titles this year in Europe include releases such as Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront, launching alongside special PS4 hardware bundles. Exclusives such as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Street Fighter V are also expected to join the PS4 software title portfolio in 2016.
In addition to the new price point, SCE will accelerate the expansion of the PS4 system by enhancing the PS4 ecosystem, which includes strengthening the PS4 software line-up, bolstering the network services available on PlayStation Network and introducing PlayStation VR, the virtual reality system that expands the world of PS4.
The recent PS4 system software update 3.00 includes a range of new features, from entirely new functions such as a new Events App and YouTube Live streaming direct from the PS4 system, as well as visual enhancements to the user interface.
