After Japan got a price cut, gamers expected that this reduced price effect would favor other regions as well.

Lastly, the National Hockey League 16 PS4 Bundle (500GB HDD) will cost $429.99 CAD (MSRP); but that is only available in Canada. The new prices come into force tomorrow with the release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, as you’ll be able to pick up a PS4 bundled with the game.
