During its pre-Tokyo Game Show press briefing at the Tokyo Hall in Roppongi, Sony Computer Entertainment announced a price drop of the PS4 for the Japanese market.

The new price will be 34,980 yen (plus taxes), that translates to about $292. It’s a definite mark down compared to the old price, which was 39,980 yen ($334).

The new price will become active starting on October 1st.

It’ll definitely be interesting to see if the price drop will be extended to the west, but for now it has been announced exclusively for the Japanese market.
