On the reveal I just heard they were posed for next gen. And if you knew the specs why were you asking?
Digital only just saves the money on the drive, 30USD by losing the drive doesn't seem exciting at all.
And yes being server based they can up the spec of their server as much and often as they want, but considering what we have been seeing on Netflix, Youtube, PSNow and internet infrastructure I don't think real experience on streaming will be better than regular console for next gen.
I only know certain specs, enough to know that it's significantly more powerful than the XBO X. I was musing on how it compares to the PS5 specifically, which isn't known. That's not hard to follow.
I don't know how much it would save, but if the box is going to be more expensive than last gen, and digital is overtaking physical, any attempt by Sony to cut the price will likely be appreciated; now more than ever.
I'm confused - have we been seeing something bad on Netflix, Youtube, PSNow and internet infrastructure?
We don't have much on PS5 to compare besides what is in the OP.
If the 14TF target it could mean 40% extra.
You can ask around here, the drive doesn't cost more than 30. MS discless X1 is MSRP 250 and MS promissed it will always be 50 cheaper than X1S, that considering margin and they pushing a new model, X1S had a 4K drive, etc.
Regarding the price of the PS5, Peter Rubin (the one who interviewed Cerny for WIRED) has tweeted that he asked about the price, and the response he got was "I believe that we will be able to release it at an SRP [suggested retail price] that will be appealing to gamers in light of its advanced feature set."
What that does mean is to anyone's guess.
That would mean 499, more than 399 but compensated by advanced feature. That considering Sony learnt from PS3.
