However, SCEE (Sony’s European branch) have been in touch with TheSixthAxis this morning to point out that they don’t set pricing – or, at least, they haven’t set an RRP.
“With regards to price, we no longer set an RRP, instead, that will be dictated by individual retailers themselves,” says the statement. “In terms of the overall hardware offering, we’re adding value (referring to the boosted hard drive size), and via a large selection of individual hard & soft bundle packs, such as FIFA 13, Assassins Creed 3, and Wonderbook: Book of Spells etc. on the run up to Xmas and beyond.”
We had estimated the price to be £240 for the big 500 GB, and £185 for the 16GB flash version. These, then, will be subject to change as and when retailers set their prices.
The FIFA 13 / 500 GB bundle will be exclusive to GAME in the UK, available from September 28th.
