Were you planning to get a PS4 in India this new year? Thanks to a GST rate cut announced by the Indian Government, Sony India has slashed prices of PS4 Slim, PS4 Pro, PSVR and PlayStation accessories. Popular Indian e-tailers selling the gaming console have changed the prices already.
You might be interested in learning why I think PS4 Slim is a better option in India than PS4 Pro. Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 have had price cuts during the festive seasons earlier. But, the PS4 and related accessories have been greatly discounted.
This move by Sony India comes after the GST council of India announced tax reduction on 23 items including TVs, monitors, power banks, gaming consoles, and other electronic items. We hope Microsoft and others will follow.
Both online and offline sellers will sell at the discounted prices from now on.
UPDATE (3rd January, 2019): PS4 prices have further dropped down! Check the new prices below.
UPDATE (7th January, 2019): The prices of PS4 have changed again. Most prices have reverted back to those on 2nd Jan, 2019. Thanks to Ram Mohan for tipping us off.

Apart from those, other accessories including the Vertical Stand, DualShock 4, Wireless Headsets have all received price cuts. The prices of some products haven’t yet been updated on major e-tailers. I suggest you bookmark this article as I will be updating this with newer items and their prices.
With games like Spider-Man and Red Dead Redemption 2, this is a great time to get a PS4. These prices are pretty great given we haven’t such a huge cut in India before. But, expect slightly better prices on these consoles when Amazon and Flipkart have sales. We are still waiting on Microsoft to slash the prices on the Xbox One. Let’s see if that happens.
