Exciting things happen in the world of video games every single day. Everything happens so quickly that it can be tough for a parent to keep track of. Between work, carting the kids to everywhere under the sun, cooking, cleaning, and maybe (just maybe) getting a chance to sleep for a few hours parents just don’t have the time to keep up with everything happening in their child’s hobby.
If the above paragraph describes you, then we have an answer for you. Every Friday morning EFG will be publishing a digest of some of the biggest video game news that your family needs to know. So kick back with your morning coffee and enjoy!
PlayStation 4 Price Drop!
Sony announced a price drop on the PlayStation 4 in Japan a while back, so it was safe to assume that the price drop would be applied in the North America region at some point. But, we didn’t have confirmation until October 8th when Sony confirmed it all. Moving forward the PlayStation 4 will be $349.99 (a $50 price drop).
This is a significant announcement for them as the price of the PS4 has been stable since its launch. This does look like it will help the console compete with the Xbox One this holiday season.
