Sony and Microsoft lowered the price of its gaming consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Russia. It is directly connected with the strengthening of the ruble, which, however, was very fleeting, so should hurry with the purchase of a console until prices rose again.
At the time of the release of the Sony PlayStation 4 in late 2013, the console was worth 19000 rubles for the version with the hard drive to 500 GB, but the stability of the economy that occurred a year later, and increased the cost to as much as 28,000 rubles, which could not affect its sales. Now, new Sony PlayStation 4 can be bought for 17,000 rubles, which is a very good deal. But let’s face the truth — the main reason for the dumping is not the strengthening of the ruble, and the output of the compact and Pro versions of the console, plus it has its age — original PS4 for nearly four years.
The situation is similar with Microsoft Xbox One: the console went on sale simultaneously with the fourth “Sonya” and cost at the time of 23000 rubles without Kinect included, but with the Winchester on 500 GB. Currently, this console can be bought for 17,500 rubles. But here we should be careful, because many retailers sell consoles imported into the country without proper documents. This means that they are not warranted, although they will work without any limitations of functionality.
