    One of my friends were able to get PS4 Slim for 26k, with one free game and 2 dualshock controllers during flipkart diwali sales. That was pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

    I don't really think its all that sweet because PS4 Slim was going for $200 in usa during sales as well so 26k is too much.

    Satisfaction can never be achieved if we keep on comparing US prices wrt India lol. The price gap is always going to be there so at best we can just try to narrow it as much as possible. If buying stuff from US isn't an option, its better to compare Indian prices only.

    Ok if you compare Indian prices, then 5 years after launch PS3 was around 18k so i would expect PS4 to be not more than 20k considering depreciation in rupee. Atleast that's what i think the fair price is.
    Edit: Also PS3 had free online.

    I am coming from a different perspective. What I meant from "sweet deal" is that you get to buy something @ 26k which is normally priced @ 35k (extra controller bundle with a free game) in Indian market. I am not considering the fact that why it is still @ 35k at first place. We "must" find the best option from available options, at the end.
    Well surprisingly, 18k in 2011 values at appox. 26.5k in 2018, plus you are getting additional controller (which itself costs 4k min. if bought seperately). Also, PS4 has been a lot more successful than PS3. So it infact is a pretty sweet deal. lol

    I wouldn't call it sweet deal considering PS5 is on the horizon. Also i already have a PC backlog and eventually will get PS4 when it is at my desired price

    Not sure why playing games isn't precious to you anymore. :No pun intended:

    I am in front of a 14" laptop for 8 hours in the office.
    When I'm not in front of the laptop screen, I have a mobile screen in front of me. (breaks and travel time etc)
    When I reach home, I want to relax my mind and body so I lie down and either sleep or watch TV while I have my supper and go to sleep.

    This is my schedule for 5 days every week.
    On the weekends, I try to go out for a ride on my bike or do some other physical activity around the house.
    When I'm not riding, I try to catch up on some lost sleep and or try to some household work.
    I barely get 5 hours of sleep during the weekdays.

    Things were different when I was a student.
    I had lots of time away from any kind of Display. So I could easily sit for 8-9 hours in front of the PC and play games.
    I longed for a PS2 but could not afford one. A PS3 was a dream.

    Now I have the money to buy any game or console I want but no time to even take them out of the box.

    The last PS4 game disc that my wife gifted me is still sealed in its original box ;(

    https://kotaku.com/massive-lines-in-south-korea-for-the-playstation-4-1832045873

    This is the line after Sony announced limited time price cut in south korea which is a rich country. Why do you think so many people there lined up if the ps4 is already a good deal? Because it wasn't. And neither us it in India. I can think of so many people like me holding out for a reasonable price as well.
