I am starting to think the PS5 might be more expensive than the Series X based on its Hard drive tech and controllers. I would be guessing they are both aiming for the $499 mark. I predict they will both be the same cost at launch.

Oh, I've never thought about that

I doubt the controller complexity adds more than 15$.
And the SSD part is smaller, so abit is saved there too (probably a near wash).

The size differnce between the APU chips (36 CU vs 52 CUs), is alone enough to warrent a ~50$ differnce imo.
Then the 10GB ram of the series X, are rated at much faster speeds = higher price.

Xbox series X will without a doubt be more expensive in terms of BoM, unless sony massively fail in the design department with their console.
