Sony gives a hint on the price of PlayStation 5


Sony PS5

This year’s console battle is very interesting. Sony and Microsoft will certainly update their console product line. According to the latest media reports, Sony executives stated in a recent earnings conference call that the company is yet to decide on the price of the new PlayStation 5. However, it is currently making difficult choices because the cost of production is increasing as the performance increases. According to Sony, to sell for $399 is no longer realistic. This gives us the hint that the PlayStation 5 will certainly sell above $400.

Gizchina News of the week


According to previous reports, the manufacturing cost of the Sony PS5 is already at $450. If we include the cost of promotion, research, and development, the total cost is approaching $500. Recall that the total cost of production of the PS4 is $ 381, thus it was easy to sell for $399. However, the possibility of selling the PS5 for $400 is absolutely low.

Sony executives also hinted that the launch of the new console should be at the end of the year. However, if the epidemic situation in China gets worse, there could be some unforeseen adjustments.

Sony PS5 is struggling with DRAM supply

Other reports claim that Sony has some real difficulties in securing the supply of DRAM and flash memory for the PS5. This difficulty means that the price will probably be spiking. Analysts believe that one of the downsides of the PS5 could be its price. Reports claim that the final price of the PS5 may be close to $470 and this has to do with the choice of components for the console.

Sony will vigorously optimize the PS5’s cooling system, this is another feature that will spike the price. The new Sony PS5 will use AMD’s custom SoC. Its frequency will reach 3.2GHz, and the performance will be 4 times the original PS4. If the PlayStation 5 has a $450 – $500 price tag, will you buy this console?

    I have to see where my money is at that time I am already starting to save for it but I’m hoping I can. The fact that it can play all my old PlayStation one and PlayStation 2 and Playstation 3 games is a big selling feature to me.

    Yes. I would pay 600$. PlayStation doesn’t disappoint with the exclusive games so I know it won’t be sitting there like an Xbox.

    I just purchased the PS4 1TB bundle w/ two controllers on Black Friday for $249, I’ll wait until the hype is done and get the PS5. I’m sure pricing will drop dramatically a few months after the unveiling.

    I wish I could buy it for that amount when it launches and not have to pay the exchange rate amount in Rands. Ppl who complain about the dollar price are just spoiled by their currency. Right now 500 dollars is R7 496,65 in S.A, So wud u rather pay 7 496,65 in any currency or pay 500

    What I would like is that if Sony could make the ps5 with a rotating projector that would be great. A high quality life time projector right on the top of the system that will blow people’s mind it’s just a taught please Sony tell me what you think. My number 7954118 what’s app me you guys could sell that system for about $900.00us a system with the idea I hope I get a free one tho lol I can’t wait to see what’s there next step. Good luck Sony with the ps5 on ward.

    Yes, definitely worth the price being a quality product. (Judging from the published bill of materials)
