Let's not forget that consoles have become significantly more expensive than the buying price when you consider the online access costs, which is mostly just a price hike.
Assuming the PS5 will launch end 2020, most people who bought PS4 at launch will have paid >800 dollars for their PS4.
This price hike will give Sony/MS some extra wiggle room to set a competitive launch price.
