Sony already had announced that the next-generation videogame console will be priced at $399. Microsoft’s rival Xbox One carries a $499 pricetag.

With the new PS4 out soon, Sony is cutting the price of the PS3 to $199 (for the 12GB version), and the Vita handheld to $199.

Microsoft has yet to reveal when exactly the Xbox One will be released.

Sony said it already has sold more than 1 million pre-orders for the PlayStation 4 around the world. That’s significant considering Sony sold less than 1 million units of the PlayStation 3 upon its launch in 2006.
