PlayStation 4 Price in Pakistan stunned Gamers and PS4 fans
My brother’s hiccups caught my attention towards PlayStation 4 price in Pakistan as compared to the price of PlayStation 4 in USA. I have heard PlayStation 4 price as $399 and I got surprised in real when my bro told me the price of PS4 in Pakistan which is between Rs 68,000 to 72,000 almost $700.
I don’t find it entirely good, if someone is able to buy PlayStation 4 in $399, and why someone else in other part of the world should buy in approx. $700.
I haven’t got a chance to personally check the price at Sony Sales center in Pakistan, but I’ll surely check with them and update readers and PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 gamers in Pakistan. Sony’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 have got huge popularity in Pakistan, and previous generation-gaming platforms had been seen quite amazing.
Media, Advertisement, Social media, Communication and Internet have opened the minds and markets in Pakistan just like other parts of Asia – Now you’ll find young and enthusiastic people quite crazy about Eastern and Western Music, Movies, Entertainment, Games and TV, that’s why I thought to go a bit deeper into the price issue of PlayStation 4.
High Prices and variation in the prices of PS4 have started creating a panic among gamers in Pakistan which is turning out to be fewer sales as a result. Sony has to take the notice of this issue, if Sony is just looking to sell PlayStation 4 through official retailers (Sony Centers), then the price should be the same as it is internationally.
You’ll find a lot of retailers selling PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and other PlayStation Accessories + Consoles in Pakistan, and they are selling at approx. $700, they are surely making some big profits, even they are getting fewer sales due to the high price of PlayStation 4 in Pakistan.
What Sony Should do?
Sony should take a look on the PlayStation 4 pricing issue in Pakistan; either Sony should select PlayStation 4 retailers for Pakistan, and then give them a selling price or if they just want to authorize Sony Centers (Sony Dealers) to sell PlayStation 4, then fix the price of PlayStation 4 similar to $399 which is approx. 42,000 in Pak Rupees.
