The more we’re closing towards the holiday season, the more fresh leaks we’re receiving on the much-awaited Sony PS5 and Xbox Series X gaming consoles. Since the beginning of this month, we have already witnessed numerous tidbits on the products. Although both the consoles are officially announced, potential buyers are still waiting for crucial information i.e. pricing. Well, we might have something for you in that particular aspect.
Sony PS5 will cost more than Xbox Series X: sources suggest!
According to a recent report by wccftech, Sony PS5 will cost more than its nemesis Xbox Series X. As per the report, an insider Dusk Golem has talked about this pricing information in a thread. According to him, Microsoft has a greater ability than Sony to offer cheaper products. Microsoft has enough resources to absorb the production costs to some extent in order to make its consoles a lucrative offer to gamers.
In fact, Microsoft is ready to lowball Sony in order to attract more potential buyers. If that’s the case, then we might see the company announcing its price a bit later than Sony. It’s no wonder that how well the PlayStation brand is established across the world and it might end up giving Sony some edge. In fact, some analysts believe that Sony will outsell Xbox Series X by 2:1.
Various reports claim that Microsoft has no presence in Japan and is also weak in most of Europe. In essence, it looks like Microsoft’s presence is not that strong in non-English speaking countries. With that said, Microsoft is also expected to launch its affordable and of course, less powerful Xbox console soon. With the cheaper console, Microsoft might be able to attract some potential buyers who are not willing to spend a premium. Furthermore, Sony PS5 is claimed to be weaker in terms of cross-platform games.
Sony to reveal PS5 price and release date soon
With reports flooding in talking about affordable Xbox console, we also saw numerous reports stating that we might soon see the official pricing of the PS5. Not only that – Sony is also expected to soon announce the release date of its consoles as well. It makes sense considering Sony might want to steal the thunder from Microsoft. It would be interesting to see which brand will take the lead this year.
