Report: PlayStation 4 Could Cost Less Than Xbox One in China

By   /   Dec 1, 2014

The PlayStation 4 has yet to release in China but several media sites are reporting that the console will be priced lower than that of the Xbox One in the region.

The Xbox One is already available in China for purchase and costs CNY 3,699 which roughly comes to about $600. The Kinect version on the other hand costs CNY 4,299 or $699.

According to reports by sites likes Sina.com and PCGames.com.cn, the PlayStation 4 will launch with a price of CNY 2,999 or $487. That’s $113 less than what the standard Xbox One version will set you back.

Sony has yet to confirm these reports. The company is expected to reveal the release date of the console in China sometime later this month. We could see that announcement happen at PlayStation Experience as well, which takes place in a week’s time.

At the moment it’s confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will launch with about fifty games in China, many of which are supposedly Chinese translated versions of previously released titles. However, actual launches seldom go as planned.

Microsoft had also promised a line of titles for launch but in the end most were delayed and have yet to be released.

An interesting point to know is that both consoles are distributed by the same company in China, Shanghai Media Group.
