Sony is expected to reveal the Playstation 4 on 20 February, and it’s been reported that “industry sources” have leaked the yet-to-be-announced console’s price.

“Industry sources and leaked internal documents suggest that Sony is considering pricing the new device at about £300, more than £100 cheaper than the starting cost of its predecessor,” said British newspaper The Times.

The Times’ article also adds that Sony won’t announce this price at the event, along with the release date, as Sony will wait to see what Microsoft has up their sleeve.

“Because company executives want to see Microsoft’s updated Xbox before PS4′s release, Sony is unlikely to reveal exact prices or dates for the new PlayStation at next week’s event,” adds the newspaper.

£300 then equates to under R4,200, which is a significant amount lower than the PS3′s SA launch price. However this guesstimate doesn’t take into account the channel costs of getting the product onto SA shores.
