It's interesting to see Sony take an extremely aggressive approach to the Indian market considering it is essentially PlayStation country thanks to Microsoft's continued absence at a large chunk of local retail and Nintendo lacking an official presence. Though the lack of a PS4 Pro price drop is disappointing if you've been waiting to buy it.
At the moment the PS4 Pro India price is Rs. 38,710 officially with warranty, while it goes for around Rs. 34,000 in the grey market without warranty. The promise of cheaper hardware abroad ensures more competitive rates for those willing to forsake warranty in the interim as its more likely for the US and Europe to receive price cuts first due to their market size. The moment Europe gets a price cut, India should see one as well as the country falls under the European region for Sony.
