PlayStation 5

A couple of weeks ago, Sony, officially announced the specs of its upcoming gaming console – PlayStation 5. There have been numerous speculations with regard to the price of this console. While some believe that a $399 price tag will be ideal, others think that it would sell for as high as $800. This wide price range shows that the industry really has no idea about the cost of the PS5. Nevertheless, recent information from a Danish online store, føtex, shows that the PlayStation 5 will cost a massive 6989 Kr. ($1032).

This store is Denmark’s largest offline retailer and the PS5 landing page shows that it is already on pre-order. According to the information on the Danish online store landing page, the PS5 has a November 2020 expected launch date. Though it’s hard to believe, if the price is true, then the price is simply outrageous. This means that the PlayStation 5 will be three times more expensive than PS4’s $399 launch price. It will also be over twice the median predicted price limit ($ 450-499).

    Your math is way off. 1000$ isn’t three times more the original price of $400. You also have to calculate inflation, $400 in 2013 is roughly equivalent to $445 now. I know three times sounds more shocking and gets you extra clicks but this is poor writing.
