It looks as if Sony has confirmed the PS4 price drop that was rumoured in June.

Sony has confirmed to Eurogamer that its upcoming Uncharted Collection PS4 bundle will come in two flavours in the UK – 1TB and 500GB. The former, high-capacity SKU will cost 329.99 while the 500GB version will cost just 299.99.

Both come in at less than the machine's official RRP of 349.99.

It was thought this might be the case when the first listings for the freshly announced 1TB machine came in at 349.99 or less, which was at that time the list price of the existing 500GB SKU.

Sony last week cut the price of the console in both Japan and China. The price reduction brings Sony's entry-level PS4 in line with Xbox One's 500GB model.

Eurogamer adds that the Uncharted bundle machine also appears to include the newer C-series hardware design, which is quieter and more power efficient than the existing design.

Of course, many people will have grabbed themselves a PS4 for well below these new lower RRPsalready.

UPDATE: PlayStation has reached out to MCV to provide some clarity on this news.

A PlayStation spokesperson said:"We would like to clarify that the pricing of the Uncharted PlayStation 4 bundles is actually a promotional price that will be available across a selection of retailers for a limited time only."
