Leaked document suggests a PS4 price drop is coming later this year

If you’ve been holding out for a PlayStation 4 price drop, you might be in luck. On Wednesday, WholesomeGamer was tipped off that Sony’s official retail loyalty site, intended to reward verified video game retail employees, is currently running a promotion which gives members the chance to win a PS4, PS Vita and other prizes.

Bloomberg News first reported last year that Google might be planning to spin off its photo sharing and storage features from Google+, and now people familiar with the plans tell Bloomberg that the new service will be revealed soon. More →
