Tretton: Cheaper PlayStation 4 Retail Price Does Not Ensure Success

Posted on August 23, 2013 AT 06:03am

SCEA CEO Jack Tretton has acknowledged the fact that a cheaper retail price for the PlayStation 4 is not a guaranteed victory over Xbox One.

“I think ultimately the gamer looks at ten-year product lifecycles: they look at the software offerings and they look at the value proposition,” he told Bloomberg. ”The lowest priced system isn’t always the most successful, but being cheaper than your competition is never a bad thing.”

The PlayStation 4 is set to release November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe for $399.
