Forums - Sony Discussion - [RUMOR] PS5 potential price are to be expected around 499 to 549 according to game developer and Sony will have limited PS5 supply on it's launch date, PS4 pro and PS4 price cut are imminent

Potentially over 2 million less units? If true that would be an absolutely huge blow to their momentum, and a massive win for Microsoft. Plenty of customers will pick up an Xbox if a PS5 is simply not available, to jump in to the next gen. Even with the higher price point, as long as there aren't any technical issues or PR disasters, the early adopters will likely clear out that inventory very quickly. So we could be looking at serious shortages. I'm going to have to preorder from multiple sources, I wanted 3 at launch.

Do you really believe that Sony is the only one affected by the Coronavirus?

Both game consoles  are assembled in China.



My prediction in 2021.

SW: 30m

PS5 16m

XBS: 7.5m

This article was written by Mochizuki and Furukawa.
Both have written a lot about Nintendo.
Mochizuki is notorious in Japan for his strong hate against Sony.

You should know who the reporter is, not Bloomberg.

They say to take rumors with a grain of salt, but when all we have to go off of is rumors, thats what we look to believe.

If what we are being told about the New Xbox and PS5 are true, then the PS5 is dead in the water. The New Xbox is looking to be the same price if not cheaper, AND have better reported performance, AND also come in a cheaper $300 model, then who the hell is buying the PS5?

Everyone in Europe and Asia because existing brand power >>>>>> literally anything wrong that can happen. So they have that cushion. 



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

I find it interesting how people find a $500 price outrageous yet we spend $1,000 in phones.

Everybody who likes games that are only on Sony consoles. Listen I hate that the PS5 isn't the strongest console but it's strong enough and MS just does not have the games I want. They don't even have simple games like DQXI and Nioh. How the hell did these games not go to Xbox it's weird as hell. Xbox 360 is the system where I played Tales of Vesperia and it became one of the best games I've ever played. Somehow MS just dropped the ball when it came to games somewhere during the 360 gen and until I see a change I'm not buying the console.

And most importantly, we use the same console for years and years. Still using my 2014 PS4. Cell phones we change every 2-3 years.

Not really, you don't need to believe in rumours because there isn't concrete information.

But yes we know there are some people that want to believe PS5 is more expensive, weaker, won't have games, overheat and is delayed by the single fact that Sony haven't showed the console.

Who cares about price. More rumors that SONY is not on top of it and I question the quality of the console that we will spending 500 bucks on

With the Series X tower fan improving airflow by 70% over the already quiet Xbox X and PS4 models having comparatively louder fans, my gut is telling me the PS5 console will either have poor airflow or copy the Series X design. Neither is particularly good for them. 

Yeasure. Copying an obvious design choice, a necessity as DigitalFoundry called it. Thats the same amount BC as claiming the DualSense is a carbon copy of the Xbox controller. Now MS has single handedly invented the tower form factor.



Hunting Season is done...
