RUMOUR: PS4 Price Cut Coming In Europe (CONFIRMED)
As predicted by AGB on Monday, Sony has indeed announced a price cut for the PlayStation 4 in the SCEE region. The 500GB version of the console will now be available at an RRP of €349.99 in the Republic of Ireland and £299.99 in the UK.
Here’s the announcement post from the PlayStation Blog Europe:

If you haven’t made the jump to next-gen yet then we have some good news for you. We are pleased to announce that from today the 500GB PS4 will be available across the SCEE region* from the new low price of €349.99/£299.99 (RRP).
We have some some fantastic bundle offers for the holiday season – check out the list. From limited edition consoles to some of the best games of the year – there’s something for everyone!
*New RRP in the following markets (new price is not limited to these countries): Benelux, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain €349.99. Australia $479.95. New Zealand $569.95. UK £299.99. Austria and Germany €349.95. United Arab Emirates AED1399.
Following hot on the heels of a PlayStation 4 price cut in Japan, China and North America, there are now fresh rumours that we will get a similar price in Europe and the announcement could come as soon as this Wednesday.
AGB (All Games Beta) have reported on Twitter that the price cut will happen at Paris Games Week, which kicks off on the 21st. The price cut is expected to knock €50 off the cost of a new PS4, bringing it down to €349.

We always say take every rumour with a grain of salt but, if you are thinking of buying a PS4, maybe waiting an extra few days would be a good idea.
