This Black Friday will be interesting, with the month of October halfway though it’s completion. It’s almost head scratching that Sony hasn’t released any word of any particular bundles for this holiday let alone not marketing the PS4 Pro very much. With that being said a small bit of information has been recently rumored. Sources allege that eBay, among other stores, will be offering the PS4 for $249.99 this Black Friday. Even better, the bundle will include a copy of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
With this in mind, it is likely that the Xbox One will match this offer with a $249.99 bundle of its own, especially given that you can buy one from Amazon for $256 right now. The primary Black Friday bundle will possible include Gears of War 4 or Madden NFL 17.
These drastic price reductions are the product of not only manufacturing optimization, but the introduction of slim SKUs. The PS4 Slim and Xbox One S have reduced component pricing that has provided both Microsoft and Sony a big opportunity this holiday season. Interestingly enough, both consoles are priced similarly to the nearly four year old Wii U.
