Sure, it will probably get more noticeable as time goes on but for the average consumer will it be a big enough leap to pay an extra $200? I feel like the price gap needs to be narrower for the premium model to seem like the better value.

Take Switch for example, the OLED model has become the dominant model because $50 more for a bigger, higher quality screen seems like a good trade off.

Keep in mind the price of the digital PS5, the value proposition of the Series S is quite weak when the price gap is that small. Throw in negative PR from the Baldur's Gate 3 debacle and I expect that 2022 will end up being when the appeal of the Series S peaked with it notably boosting Xbox Series sales that year due to the stock issues. It'll keep selling but the average gamer won't wanna play the worst version of games like GTA 6 so most will get them on either the Series X, PS5 or a good PC.

I’ve never heard about the Baldur’s Gate debacle so can’t really comment on that but weren’t the Xbox One S & PS4 Slim more popular than the X & Pro? I think you’re overestimating how much the average consumer cares about or can even tell the difference between 1440p & 4K or 30fps vs 60fps.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
