ASUS ROG Ally price drops in Europe

ASUS has lowered the price for their ROG Ally console across several EU markets.

If there is something we love to report on that’s price cuts. ASUS has lowered the price for their console in Europe. The updated pricing has been implemented on the official ASUS online stores and major participating sellers. The ASUS ROG Ally, which utilizes AMD Ryzen Z1 series APUs, is available in two models: the top-tier Extreme edition and a less powerful one with fewer cores and a less capable GPU.

Formally, there is a price difference of $100 and €100 between these two systems, with the Extreme variant priced at €799 in Europe and the non-Extreme model at €699. Today, these prices have been reduced by €100, making them €699 and €599, respectively.

Official ASUS ROG Stores (Finland/France):

Examples from Retailers:

The price adjustment for the console comes just two days after the official launch of the Lenovo Legion Go handheld, which technically offers very similar specifications. However, the Lenovo console features a larger and higher-resolution screen, a bigger battery, support for non-proprietary external GPUs, and removable controllers. For many gamers who were considering purchasing the ROG Ally console but found the price too high, there’s now a new alternative.

It’s uncertain whether this is a permanent price reduction, as there are no such promotions listed in US stores at the moment. These promotions in the EU don’t seem to be related to “Black Friday” deals; it’s simply a simultaneous price adjustment across multiple markets.
