ShopTo Price The PlayStation 4 And Games

Start saving.

Shop.To has become the first retailer to list PlayStation 4 games for sale and the Recommended Retail Price (RRP) for the titles seems to be £10 higher than PS3 titles, meaning new releases will cost £59.99 rather £49.99.

Of course most UK retailers discount games by around £10 which is why we are used to a £39.99 price point for PS3 games. ShopTo are discounting PS4 releases by 19% which means Diablo III, Second Son and Drive Club can be pre-ordered for £48.85.

Judging by the preview we have seen, the PS4 games are extremely detailed – doubtless costing more to produce – so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the games cost more to purchase.

We will have to wait and see if Activision stay in line with everyone else as they moved the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call Of Duty: Black Ops II up to the £59.99 RRP.

The online retailer has also listed the PS4 console with a wallet numbing £399 price tag, pricey but still £25 less than the cost of a PS3 at launch. ShopTo list the RRP for the console as £449.

Obviously, this is all subject to change but it gives us a good starting point for discussion.

    Well I asked Dennis from the kebab shop last night and he said £399 and that blokes like the Oracle! He correctly predicts football results, the scorers and all sorts. Why he isn’t a professional gambler I don’t know. In fact I’m surprised he hasn’t been arrested for match fixing. Hell… he even predicted what salad I was gonna have with my chicken kebab. Dennis has spoken… End.

        I’ll ask him in a bit as I am getting a bit peckish. Failing that Ill give Paul Daniels a call – He should know being a wizard and so forth.

    Too expensive, not enough merit. No sale.

    Pre-ordered as soon as I knew it was available. Will keep my eye on all the deals and see what Sony do as an employee deal (often isn’t better than what the shops offer)

    Pre-ordered this as soon as caught Cam mentioning it early hours. The missus giving permission to drop a bomb on it providing I take her to Cornwall in August (that was already a given but she non the wiser). “Ahh go on then” :-)

    I reckon the £399 price tag sounds about right. Still cheaper than PS3 was on launch day.

    I think this is Shopto covering their based, but if it’s not… can the market bare this cost of £450 for console and a game in a recession?

      For everyone who says it’s cheaper than the PS3 on launchday have to remember the PS3 WAS backwards compatible (to a degree), the PS4 isn’t (so far). So at least back then you could play Ps2 games until you got paid again.
