What do you think the next-gen consoles will cost?

PS5 - $500 / XSX - $500 18 60.00%
 
PS5 - $500 / XSX - $450 1 3.33%
 
PS5 - $500 / XSX - $400 3 10.00%

PS5 - $450 / XSX - $400 0 0.00%
 
PS5 - $400 / XSX - $500 2 6.67%
 
PS5 - $400 / XSX - $450 1 3.33%
 
PS5 - $400 / XSX - $400 0 0.00%
 
Total:30

I know there has been a few of these, so why not another? What is everyone's price predictions for the PS5 and Xbox Series X? I would be very surprised if we don't find out within the next 3 weeks or so! Here are mine:

Xbox Series X - $399

Xbox Series S (if it exists) - $199 (with no optical disk drive option, so digital only to help recoup costs)

PlayStation 5 - $449 (yes I am predicting MS will bite the bullet and purposefully undercut Sony on price)

PlayStation 5 Digital Edition - $399

I am VERY curious if either of them will push past that $500 barrier, since both have been burned by high-priced console launches in the past (Sony with the $599 PS3 and Microsoft with the $499 Xbox One)...



I agree $500 would be an artificial cap. It's a big ask after seeing previous launches like the above post said. Dunno if they'd gamble by launching a premium model over $500. Will the discless model cost less? Can't imagine it's an expensive part, or would it somehow give the impression of being inferior (which to me it is, I like my media). Competition wise we have to see who fires first. I mean $50 difference isn't a big deal and going up to $100 less would be a hefty dent in profit. I'd guess they launch about the same price and try to buy customers through exclusives. Then you wonder if economic issues affect their asking price. With so many out of work we could have a slow start to the gen.

So if I were going to vote I'd say both at $400 just to leave room for a premium model or bundle at a later time.

Yea more realistically, the Series X will probably be $500 as well but I feel like MS will ask a premium for that "Most powerful console" branding like they did with the One X where as the series S will fill in that value budget role.

Its just a matter of time before someone bites the bullet and goes first.

I'm thinking Sony will announce PS5 price first at $500 SE $400 DE.

Microsoft will follow at suit and reveal Xbox Series X price at $500.

Series S will launch later next year at $300.
