Please present evidence for your statement. Consumers don't care about the insides of machines and they are the ones who decide what it's worth. $399 is already on the high end of what's acceptable for a video game system, $499 is too much. The mass market doesn't care how much of a profit or loss is made on each unit. Mark my words, ps5 and xsx sales will get slow starting january 2021 if they are priced at $499.

Well where was your evidence? You can't provide anything more sound than mine, so we're both just giving our opinion.

"Consumers don't care about the insides of machines"? You're telling me if PS5 is just a reskinned Pro that costs $399, that people will be ok with that, just because of the price? Then why would SNY or MS bother making newer more capable hardware?

Consumers are part of the formula, but if what they are willing to pay isn't enough, the product fails and/or ceases to exist. Either that or they have to wait for prices to fall. That's how it works.

Hystorical data says hello.

I'm ignoring the pointless example that followed. But do remember that one of the most successful consoles ever was a reskinned gamecube.

Inflation, progress, advancement, economic stability, are all pleased to me you. Where's worldwide recession?

Reskinned GCN? Exact same internals? Same stock peripherals? No new gimmicks? Same consumer audience?

Historical data based on what? The fact that the PS2/Wii/X360/DS/3DS was the most underpowered system and sold best? That was true once, but ever since then we need more and more power to get slightly better visuals, and let's face it, 500$ today is not 500$ in 2012. I think people will be fine to pay that premium at launch Also, they will have way more room to maneuver with the pricing, down the line.



I hear it's 47 Bibleflitsens! Also, with the ray shade x splicing, I am sure we'll see some beautiful games. This is also the first home console with graphical monolomy features which will push the limits to over 430 Yutaglops.

I'd say 700 USD at least, though it is worth 1300.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I don't pay for a console at a higher price than 399€.

Why though? Given it's a system you're more than likely to keep for a minimum of 5 years and have hours upon hours of enjoyment from, as far as entertainment goes... It's one of the more affordable options out there. Especially compared to the likes of Netflix, going to the cinema... etc.

You don't feel compelled to upgrade it every 2 years like a PC either, though that's more for moderate to heavy enthusiasts.

I have a great PC yes but that's the last time. Next PC I will buy will be when mine won't work anymore. And the next one will be a very cheap one.

Define expensive. The PS3 did mighty well, and the base price (499$) today would be 650$ if you take into account inflation. Look, I'm not saying that I or most consumers don't want a cheap product, but considering this gen, I would be more than OK to pay for the extra oomph, and I bet most Sony/MS fans would be willing to do the same, so they can have a competent system 5-6 years down the line.

The ps3 did horribly bad until sony stripped what it could to make the price $399 and even then it was an uphill battle.

A competent system doesn't need to be expensive and most fans didn't do that for the expensive ps3 and xbox one.



$600 would be a hard pill to swallow. Not for me personally, but convincing the wife. The Scorpio is only a few years old by then. $500 would be no big deal.

At this point I don't even need to see the PS5 specs or price. Just give me that XSX.



Day One for me. Same for PS5.

Next Gen will be amazing, and I cannot wait anymore.
