Xbox boss expects PS4 price drop in US
Speaking with IGN, Xbox head Phil Spencer spoke about the recent price cut on the PlayStation 4 in Japan, expressing his confidence in the likelihood of it soon happening in the west.
“I fully expect they [PlayStation] will drop price. When I think about the playbook they’ve used in the past, we feel good about the plans we have in place going forward in the holiday. If history tells, then we’ll see a price drop from them coming.”
Spencer also mentioned Sony’s presence at Paris Games Week, suggesting perhaps an announcement could be made at that time. But, he doesn’t necessarily feel threatened by the possibility and even suggests it would be a good thing.
