Starting today the 500GB PS4 will be available in the SCEE region for €349.99/£299.99. With the exchange rate right now, that would make the PS4 the equivalent of $397 and some change in the US. New pricing is available in Benelux, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.

In Australia, the PS4 will start at $479.95 while it will cost $569.95 in New Zealand. Austria and Germany get a slightly different price of €349.95, a €0.04 discount on the new price in the UK and elsewhere.

PS4 gamers in the UAE will get the PS4 console for AED1399.These countries will also have access to bundles for the holiday season as well with the Uncharted bundle, Destiny bundle, Metal Gear Solid V bundle, and a Batman: Arkham Knight bundle. The coolest bundle is that Star Wars Battlefront edition with Vader's mug on the side of the machine.
