A JB Hi-Fi staff member has claimed that Australia's largest home entertainment retailer will be competing with Target and Big W sales. The staff member said that JB Hi-Fi would be offering the 500 GB model of PS4 Slim for $299 on Friday, Nov. 25. Currently, the price can be viewed on their sales system but the catalogue will be released shortly. 

According to OzBargain, the staff said that there are no extra controllers and additional games offered along with the PS4 Slim sale. However, PS4 and Xbox One fans can now purchase the  number of titles that has been discounted, including Call of Duty, Final Fantasy XV, Watch Dogs 2 and NBA2K17. The games cost $69 and $79 each.The staff member also clarified the misprint on the 1TB slim model advertisement as it was advertised under $300. He said that there was a price correction based on the mail from the company’s head office.

The details on JB Hi-Fi sales can be considered as unconfirmed until a catalogue or website offer is available. However, fans should check the website as there will be a chance that JB Hi-Fi will follow suit on offering sale for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
