Update: According to new information, Sony is going to match the price of the Xbox Series X.www.gamereactor.eu
There was someone in this forum who argued that competition from xbox does nothing for playstation. It was really sad and pathetic to readIF true, which I don't believe, this is why we need competition folks.
However, Sony would be throwing money away if it is selling it at a loss. They simply don't need to.
I agree. And I think MS is in a position where they are losing money and don’t care.
Sony could price this higher and still sell better, imo.
I expect 399/499 by now. Anything less than that and I'd be really surprised. Would be a megaton.
Yeah and Apple scrambled to change its iPhone pricing next week in response to the Microsoft Surface Duo pricing.
This is not how it works folks.
I was thinking the PS5 would be $599 all day long but after MS announced the X at $499, there's no way Sony will give them that
much of a price gap. I think Sony matches the $499(physical media edition) or hits at $550 tops. A fifty dollar difference(especially
with a more solid line up of launch window games) is negligible IMO.
Because they are spending more on cooling, more on the memory used for the SSD, and in general more for the much larger mobo.I've said it before. Why do folks think PS5 would be more expensive then next gen Xbox. It's less powerful.
What makes folks think this piece of tech should be more expensive?
I was saying this as well. I guess its both hardware an license fees, but I'm pretty sure sony doesn't need to pay any
So almost the entire forum was saying they’re playing chicken with MS so they can adapt their pricing if MS undercut them, and now someone is saying that’s what’s happened and everyone’s calling it BS?
