Exactly what I said months ago, if Sony would make it 450dollars it would have to be sold at a big loss.
SSD is very expensive
The new controller is also more expensive than dualshock
The new GPU and processor and Ram all more expensive
The ps4 pro launched at 400dollars with much cheaper specs, cheaper controller, no BluRay 4k drive and no ssd, the xbox X was 500 dollars without SSD and cheaper controller, therefore there is no way the ps5 could ever be less than 450dollars at a loss, but Sony said they wouldn't take a loss so 500dollars is bare minimum.
