PlayStation 5 is the machine that will bring to life most of our dreams of the gaming world. The next-generation console will be vastly superior to its predecessor PlayStation 4, as it will bring haptic controllers, more hardware power, and more.
As so many people are wondering how much a unit will cost, some relevant info is now emerging into the spotlight.
PS5 won’t be cheap
Sony Interactive Entertainment’s president and CEO Jim Ryan said some compelling and reasonable things:
“I think the best way that we can address this (the economic issues for consumers) is by providing the best possible value proposition that we can. I don’t necessarily mean lowest price,”
“Value is a combination of many things. In our area it means games, it means number of games, depth of games, breadth of games, quality of games, price of games… all of these things and how they avail themselves of the feature set of the platform.”
Therefore, the best scenario is that PS5 won’t be sold for a price lower or equal to the one of the PS4 console. The price won’t be the lowest possible, but either too high.
