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

The scalping on these things is about to be stupid.

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.

Ah I see the pre spin emerging. Can’t deny the Series X design is a big departure from traditional console boxes and angular flat rectangles.

Plus it speaks to MSs clear PC roots with the tower look. But to top it off they are first and revealed in December. If Sony unveils the same design...might as well say their entire RnD department just looks to MS for inspiration. It wouldn’t be original and it would scream imitative rather then innovative.

Didn't you know? Before the XBOX Series X reveal, all PC cases were spherical. SPHERICAL!

I think they will make it $499 even if they have a small loss.

As credible as sony reacting to MS reveal, even when show evidence that Sony reveal was know by news people for like over a week and the video was recorded even earlier to be shown on GDC.

Sony completely redesigned their console to look like XSX because the internet loved the look of it right? Shall put together with the rumour of PS5 overheating and thus they aren't showing the console. Not to forget it is overheating because of arrogance kkkk, that was a great rumour and even had one site putting their credibility to say the insider was thrustyworthy.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

This isn’t a spec reveal, this is a console reveal. Nobody going to remember the spec reveal years from now. But everybody will certainly remember the consoles if they happen to share the same design. Especially given how the design is in itself a departure from tradition. And this isn’t something that insiders knew about for a week...this is 4 months and counting. 

Cmon, let’s be real. Wouldn’t you want the PS5 to have a unique design? 

Edit: Xbox gamers loved it for sure but it’s not about liking it...it’s about practicality. That it is by far the most effective way to vent heat then a flat box. The Sony rumor that they are finding this out the hard way, even I’m skeptical. But the more time goes by the more I’m curious.

Don't really see the point of buying at launch.

Most games are going to be cross-gen for a long while and the PS5 specs aren't even that great (10 TF is nothing special).

Waiting outside and lining up and doing all that other stupid stuff is just a waste of time. Better off waiting until 2021 or the first price drop for either PS5 or XSX.

In theory, if the internals were agreed upon a long time ago and just had to reshape the dimensions of the outer plastic box encasing it....how much time could that possibly take? I wouldn’t say it would take years. 

For any technical minded gamers who read this feel free to jump in. I’m legit curious to know how a theoretical outer box redesign would take from conception to factory changes necessary.

enough time to be behind on schedule and have supply constraints
