(Of course We haven't seen the actual game perfomance.)

So what's the price ? 

Will the two be the same price ?
Is the PS5 cheaper ?

Let me know what you think.

My expectation.

PS5 $450
XSX $500
Ps5's die will be smaller, but the cooling and SSD will be higher.
But Overall, i expect the PS5 to be a little cheaper.

Exact same price, even if Microsoft takes a loss on each console.

I think the PS5 controller will increase a bit the price of the console, so I'd say 450 $/€ for the PS5 and 500 $/€ for the XBsX.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

I'm expecting both at $450 or $500 now. Phil indicated recently that he has the support of Satya Nadella to be flexible with the price based on Sony pricing, which sounds like they plan to price match. Meanwhile, I really don't think that the bill of materials difference is all that big, while XSX clearly has the larger and more expensive AMD chipset, PS5 has a more expensive custom SSD and a more expensive controller that is chock full of tech not in the XSX controller, like an internal battery, a touchpad, voice coil actuators in the triggers, haptic feedback grips, and an omni-direction noise cancelling microphone, the SSD and controller will minimize the BOM difference between the two.

I am starting to think the PS5 might be more expensive than the Series X based on its Hard drive tech and controllers. I would be guessing they are both aiming for the $499 mark. I predict they will both be the same cost at launch.



too much vs too much +50$



PS5 will be ~499$
Xbox series X will be ~599$

Is my guess so far.
Xbox will launch a Series Y, for 299$ or so a year down the line.

Oh, I've never thought about that

Yeah, with all of the money Microsoft is willing to lose on Gamepass publisher deals and discounts, this is a very credible take to have I believe.

Although, I also wouldn't be surprised if either was just $50 lower than the other (though I'd expect Sony would be the one lower in that relationship).
