After the first samples of Xbox Series X, and with the presentation PS5 State Play just around the corner, the great unknown of the new generation of consoles has become its price. And is that in the absence of an official announcement, Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, explained in an interview that the company plans to offer “the best possible value proposition” for consumers.
However, the alarms have sounded with their following explanation: «I don’t necessarily mean the lowest price […] Courage is a combination of many things. In our area, it means games, it means number of games, depth of games, breadth of games, quality of games, price of games … all these things and how they take advantage of the platform’s set of features «.
As we have done on previous occasions, if we start to review the components that make up we see that only the cost of materials, already leads us to easily overcome a range between 400 and 450 euros. It makes sense, in fact I also think that the most reasonable thing would be for PS5 to hit the market with a maximum price of 499 eurosBut that is only a possibility and it does not have to be fulfilled.
And it is that these latest statements about the Sony console, added to the fact that Microsoft has already advanced the possibility of financing the purchase of its Xbox Series X, could meet the first expectations that PS5 arrives under a launch and limited number of units , and prices that could end up exceeding the 600 euro band.
A price that already seems higher than what many players have already been in favor of paying, could be further increased due to the current post-Covid situation, and the great supply and manufacturing problems experienced during the last months.
Despite this, industry analysts have said that Sony is waiting for Microsoft to reveal the price of its next generation before revealing the PS5’s own, so given the position of a cheaper console posed by the Xbox Series X We could still see an adjustment on both consoles before their arrival at Christmas.
At this point we have nothing more to wait, but in the meantime, from MC we want to ask you again: How much would you be willing to pay for the PS5?
