At a very big cost and several corrections. And you do understand the point =p

May it launch at 599? Sure Sony can make mistakes, but the reasoning of OP and people agreeing is very off.

PS3 had the advantage of BD and being more powerful, plus it was loosing 200 per unit so it was as low as possible. With the PS5 BOM estimative 450, it would make zero sense to launch it at 599 and leave MS to smack them on price while also more powerful and with essentially the same features.

Can`t really blame you.

Oh don't worry, I get it... was just pointing out that the PS3 managed to cross 50m even with its awful launch, lol. I'm happy to pay a high price because I know I'll get my money's worth out of it, and there's already a minimum of a dozen games I'll be buying just from the first ever games reveal of it, lol. If they announce the price and it's cheaper though? Big win for me, the money will go on more games lol :P 



$599.99 won't sting near as much in 2020 as 2006. I understand there's been a global pandemic and other factors, but the PS5 has a lot going for it. Reminder that $599.99 in 2006 is about $763.06 today. PS5 won't fail at launch with a $599.99 price tag. Higher than that? It's going to be a big struggle for PS5.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

I don`t mind paying 599 for a console I`ll use for 6 years, but yes market wise it is still a little high. 499 is the maximum I see it being a massive launch period and first year sustained sales (without they making a big cut on second or third holiday). Something like PS4 is more likely, launch at 50 USD loss (so 399 discless and 449-499 with disc) and keep that price for 3 years already making profit on the second year, then cut like 100 and hover to the end of it.

On the game side I agree with you this have been one of the most loaded reveals I remember on games I want to buy today.

Why would the market be okay with $599?

Wow. I had no idea XB1 controllers still came with AA batteries. What's the price on a recharging kit new? 

$20 I think. It's alot cheaper than buying a whole new controller when your battery life starts to get bad after a couple of years, so I actually like that Xbox controllers have replaceable batteries. But I do wish they bundled a rechargeable battery with the console and separate controllers. 

I think you're maybe underselling the life-span of these batteries. Taken at it's most literal, a couple means 2, and after 14 years of using rechargeable controllers and 18 years for portable systems, I have never had a single one become noticeably compromised in 2 years. Having said that, the controllers usually need to be replaced after roughly 4 years for other reasons, so that is roughly, my battery ceiling for controllers. But again, the battery never showed signs of needing replacement after heavy use. That's across 2 full gens with no hint of battery degradation. I'll even toss in my grand champion of battery life, my launch Vita. I abandoned it in Dec 2018. Almost 7 years, and roughly 4-5 thousand hours, it still held a charge almost perfectly. The DS and DS Lite didn't get quite as much time, but they still never faltered. Furthermore to this, LI batteries are fairly easily replaceable.

And on a personal note. F*** "replaceable batteries". That's some 80's sh**.
