Sony PS5 & Xbox Series X to cost more than you think

According to recent reports, the Sony PS5 and Xbox Series X will cost more than $ 600. This is more expensive than what many people expect. Recently on the NeoGaf game forum, a user who claimed to have “reviewed the new consoles of the two companies privately with NeoGaf employees” broke the news: “The news I have is that both companies (referring to Sony and Microsoft) will launch two game console versions. The mid-range configuration will be released simultaneously and will have a 7-year cycle. “

According to some developers, the overall performance of the two new consoles is comparable, and some games perform unexpectedly. For example, you want the game to continue running at a frame rate of 60fps, but the result is refreshed by the native 4K resolution @ 90Hz.

Both Sony and Microsoft have talked about how much raw capacity their next-generation computers will have. The Sony family alone said that the PS5 will have near-instant load times, support for 8K video, ray tracing, and a Ryzen-based CPU. Its status is equivalent to a low-end gaming PC, which is about $ 500 cheaper than twice the price of a desktop computer.

Microsoft’s pricing of the Xbox series X is quite aggressive. Sony will either match it or sell its console for a lower price. However, it’s worth noting that many consoles are sold at cost or with only a small profit.

What do you think about the latest “above $600” price tag speculation of the PS5 and Xbox Series X? Will you get any of these consoles for $600 – $800? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    600-800 for a game console is too much. Might as well make the jump to PC gaming.

    Over 600 is at a point I’ll have trouble justifying. It’s not jist 600 either. Ill want an extra controller and one of the new games. Then it will all have 10% tax added to it. So 792 or so lowballing it. Sorry, but I will have a hard time doing that.

    I’m ready for it, even if they start at $800. Although, I doubt they will cap $550 each.

    “Might as well go to PC” …you can’t afford a 600-800 console but you can afford a PC!?

    How TF is that too expensive for a console but go buy a $1500 PC….

    Ok you guys have to realize that if either does go for 600-800 that they need to start making money to continue their business. Otherwise they will end up losing all areas of development bc they won’t be able to pay for employees or research further to make the gaming experience a whole lot better than 4k or 8k. So yeah I would be willing to pay that just to start getting better gaming and up/download to a better place instead of waiting forever for the games to come up or to broadcast without glitches.

    I don’t understand why they’re trying to charge so much when PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S and the Xbox One X came out at $300 each so I don’t understand why they’re wanting to charge $600 to $800 for there new out coming consoles but like usual I’ll wait a year for the price to come down to where I can afford it and then I’ll get me one play that one for a year and then get the newest one that they bring out after the price drops on it cuz it’ll probably be right around the same 600 $800 maybe even more maybe a thousand to 1500

    I’m guessing they will be in the 5 to 600$ range at release, they are just manipulating expectations leaking those high prices.

    It’s really steep, but the technology seems so amazing. Plus the backwards compatibility with all X-Box games entices me more. I’m just setting aside a little money each month to purchase the the new X-Box series X when it is released. Our X-Box One is our total entertainment system. So, I think the upgrade will be great.

    Im pre-ordering the console when the time comes regardless of the price xbox is going to be epic!!! ….jumping to PC for a decent computer to just play games is going to cost and if your not being cheap 1500 to 3000 and thats on the low end so there isnt any lag with the gaming. Il

    I’m already in the process to build a computer. If I got to spend that much I may as well build a nice computer for $1800
