Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 Price Will Likely Be Determined by Xbox Series X Price

I hope PS5 is $400



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

prepare yourself for the most epic undercut.



Rumors are that while MS will have the GPU TF benefit, Sony's console will have a faster and larger SSD and faster RAM. How that will work out exactly, I'm not sure, but raw TF numbers are becoming less significant.
I'm expecting that MS Series X will be mildly more expensive than PS5, while MS Series S (or whatever the cheap option will be called) will be mildly cheaper. MS seems rather conservative by not wanting to break compatibility with even the launch X1, while Sony seems to be a bit more daring by not guaranteeing that next gen games will be playable on PS4 models.

I'm really skeptical about the BC topic. MS says it's going to be there and Sony seems hesitant but they did say all their first party titles would be. It seems like Sony doesn't want to say it will be 100% BC because they could end up being responsible for patching various games that don't work out of the box. It makes me wonder if MS is just claiming 100% BC but can't really do that because they would have to play every single game ever released on the X1 and verify it works. MS is well known for saying things that are hyperbole or just flat out wrong. 



Dont think they want the same effect they got at e3 2013. I think what he means is that they want PS5 to be in between NS and XS. That middle ground is where the brand dies best.

I'll be honestly surprised if one of these two is under the 499$ tag. Unless of course, they'd be willing to sponge the loss.

With PS5 going for launch on November I wouldn't expect they to finish the price before July.

They are still refining the cost control and looking at their projections of sales and competition until the last minute.

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

All this is saying is that they want to be competitive. It doesnt mean they will undercut xbox... tbh it's not news. This is just companies make pricing decisions except Sony in 2006



Why is Sony being so beta, they are the market leaders they should be dictating.

They are being humble and avoid being arrogance. They know Microsoft are not messing around this time.
