Fears over high pricing of the Xbox One and PS4 may be over, with GameStop claiming that both consoles will launch at cheaper prices than their predecessors.

During the firm's post-earnings financial call, GameStop chief financial officer Rob Lloyd stated that he thinks the new consoles will have a "lower opening price point than they did last cycle."

In the US market the Xbox 360 launched with two skus ($300/$400) and the PlayStation 3 was available at $500 or $600.

UK gamers will be hoping the cheaper launch prices apply here too, where the Xbox 360 Premium retailed for £279 and the PlayStation 3 40GB £425.

I've done some research and zavvi.com offers PS4 for the cheapest price of £379.99, with savings of £220 compared to amazon.co.uk!!! You need a promo referrers code ZV16127166 to get 5% OFF, though. It works for everything they have in the store (inc. preorders) on your first purchase when opening a new account. No deposits, no money charged before item is actually shipped.

The zavvi price is a placeholder. None of the retailers have been given a guide price yet in the UK.

I hope they are cheaper I would be happy to pay £250 each for both cant imagine they would be any cheaper though but would be great if I could buy both for £400, gonna be some good price wars between them hopefully with them supposably realising at the same time or there abouts.
