PS4’s Price Dropping as Low as £299 This Week on GameSeek Via Co-Buy Operation

on May 9, 2014 6:37 AM

If you live in the UK and you’re in the market for a PS4, you may want to wait a couple days, because the British retailer GameSeek posted a notice announcing that as a result of a popular vote the  PS4 will receive a “whopping price drop” this week on its online storefront.

And it has the potential to be indeed a quite sizable one, as the console will be put for sale for as low as £299.99. This is actually a co-buy scheme, which is a way to collaboratively purchase discounted items that has gained traction lately in Europe. If you’re interested in how it works, there’s a rather detailed FAQ here. Basically the more people purchase the item the lower it drops up to the target of £299.99.

Considering the demand for the PS4 it’s very likely that the price will drop all the way to the target, but it’s a caveat you have to keep in mind before making your purchase.

It’s worth mentioning that GameSeek already had a similar sale for the Xbox One, but according to the notice there will be ten times as many PS4 consoles available for sale this time around. apparently GameSeek expects a full house.

While the sale isn’t available yet, you can check out the retailer’s listing for an update on when it will be.

Update: according to GameSeek’s Twitter accoung it’s actually happening today.
