I think it's time we face ground reality on the subject surrounding PS5 Price. Bloomberg's initial reports suggested Sony's struggling to keep the manufacturing costs low due to exotic SSD and cooling solutions. PS5 is rumored to costs $450-$470 to manufacture. A $549 price point doesn't sound unreasonable. But unfortunately MS has made it clear they won't be beaten on the price/performance this time around. A $449/$549 for DE and Physical Edition seems highly plausible. If these are indeed revealed to be the actual price points, would that bode well for Sony? Can they see themselves selling those supposed 10 million first wave of production units? Sure at launch day/week the PS5 would be sold out, but in the long run wouldn't these prices hurt them?
Is the SSD that much more expensive to possibly bump this past $499? I’m guessing $499 but I don’t know about how much SSDs cost.
Ok first there is more that goes into cost than just the "power" of the main processing components. Other parts and material costs also factor in.Why do folks think a less powerful console will be more expensive?
PS4 Pro would simply be discontinued. It was always intended as a stop-gap. PS5 is simply the superior version of PS4 Pro.PS5 $500 PS5 DE $450. Any lower and they are gonna have drastically reduce the price of PS4 Pro which I believe is still $349 MRSP. Shows what a massive statement $299 Series S actually is. Imagine the mark down on inventory Sony will have to make to shift last gen
If "F You" is the only reason you can come up with for your position, then you don't really have a position.I think if the people who launched the PS4 were still in charge at Sony you'd have a system equal to or slightly more powerful than the Series X selling for the same price. But since they're not we're getting a weaker system that will cost more because fuck you we're Sony.

No. Because PS4pro and PS5 share the same group of customers, but the PS4 Slim and the future PS4 Superlsim are a completely separate group.Wouldn't it be better to discontinue the PS4 and have an entry level 4TF slim Pro? It's the same console in every way. Sony didn't even add a 4k bluray drive to the Pro presumably to reduce costs. At 7nm I doubt it would be as noisy and would be about the same size as ps4 now.
And i am sticking to 399 for normal version, 345 for digital. This is the plan.
