$599.99 won't sting near as much in 2020 as 2006. I understand there's been a global pandemic and other factors, but the PS5 has a lot going for it. Reminder that $599.99 in 2006 is about $763.06 today. PS5 won't fail at launch with a $599.99 price tag. Higher than that? It's going to be a big struggle for PS5.
