Sony had other cash cows back in the day and wanted to promote their optical media with PlayStation. Very different situation.

Maaaybe the digital will be $399 if they're feeling specially generous, anything lower seems just unrealistic.

Well, even with the PS4 they undercut Microsoft. But I maintain that I feel Sony wants a 400 dollar system to remain on the market while PS4 Pro drops from $399. I think we're seeing Sony wanting to branch out into more homes, and I don't think more expensive is how you do that. They've been down that route before. $399 is that sweet spot for Sony and one way or another I think they're going to hit it. 

Sony doesn't want to undercut anymore, because they want people to think PS5 has value. If PS5 is cheaper than the XBSX, than they are telling the consumers that the PS5 is weaker and less valuable than the XBSX. The high price will also lead to higher profits.

Nintendo hasn't price cut the Switch yet and pretty much never price cuts their software and they get high profits and consumers think their SW is more valuable.
