A leaked Walmart ad is circulating the internet, and it features holiday prices for the Switch Lite and PS4 Pro.
The ad also states that items are only available, “while supplies last.” If the rumors are true, supplies probably won’t last very long. You might want to get your Black Friday shopping done early this year.
The Black Friday ad was shared on Cheapassgamer.com earlier this week. Its authenticity has yet to be validated, but the individual who posted the leaked image writes, “I have faith in my source.” Since we all know that people on anonymous forums never lie, there’s no reason not to believe him.
$299 is certainly an incredible price for a machine like the PS4 Pro, which is widely regarded as the best console on the market. If you currently own a PS4, this is an outstanding opportunity to upgrade your console for a relatively small cost. The PS5 is also slated for release in May of 2020. So, if you can wait until then, you might want to hold out.
PlayStation has hinted that the next generation of Sony consoles will be light years beyond anything currently on the market. In fact, the PS5 will outperform many gaming PCs in terms of processing power and graphics capability.
As for the Switch Lite, $149 is a fair price for the latest edition of Nintendo’s most popular console. The Lite has underperformed in terms of sales thus far, so maybe a holiday discount like this will help. The Lite really offers no new advantages when compared to the standard Switch. It’s more for individuals who champion portability and are looking for a cheaper option. Perhaps a new pricing model will make it even more of an attractive choice for those who are looking to save some money.
With Black Friday just around the corner, more deals are certainly going to surface. The holiday season is also bringing a long list of new releases this year. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Luigi's Mansion 3, and Death Stranding are all releasing within the next month. Whether there’s truth to this Walmart ad or not, gamers have plenty to be excited about.
