Since MS doesn't seem to care much about how many Series X's they'll sell, I don't see why they would be willing to take a hit on each console sold. I'm guessing $599 for Series X, $499 for the ps5 and $399 for the ps5 DE. If Series S is real, it will probably be $299, though.

The cost of the UHD Bluray drive will be about $25. (The UHD Bluray drive in the XBO S was only estimated to cost $33.50 back in 2016). So a $100 price decrease for the digital edition seems unlikely.

I'm not sure what the pricing will be for this digital edition and how they will make it attractive compared to the standard ps5.

$50 less?

Bundled with a game?

More Storage?

They have to do something to make the digital edition more appealing but removing the drive doesn't bring down manufacturing cost much so I'm not sure they can make it an attractive purchase just by lowering it's price, without taking a hit anyway.

I know but its not all about BOM, its about the psychological consumer price that the masses will find acceptable. $399 for the ps5 DE would be the sweet spot. Sony would have to sell it at a loss, of course, but they will be able compensate a bit by charging 100 bucks more for the disk version.

I mean, it would be kinda stupid to release two models if there's just a $25 price difference between them :)

No no no, this doesn't match what my "insiders" are saying at all about price! Insiders like Dusk Golem who got demodded and admitted he lied and made up everything because he didn't like Xbox getting bad press after their last show case.

I mean, what Dusk said could still be true, it only needs PS5 to be more expensive.

Got a source on him admitting he lied?

Also he wasn't de-modded, he stepped down, I have an easy guess why but won't get into that.

He got demodded for admitting to feuding console wars. The 1080P vs 4K on Resi 8 doesn't make sense since its in pre alpha and we don't know the context or what build and optimizations are for the game yet. He then backtracked calling he spoke to more 'sources' claiming PS5 was only capable of fake 4K.

Matt from Resetera also calling him out, who's an actual developer at Activision.

He might have contacts at Capcom, everywhere else is a bit of a guessing game.

I'm aware Matt called him out but it was more along the lines of saying he shouldn't say stuff like that when Resident Evil 8 is so far away that making comments on the state of the game is stupid given there's a lot more optimisation to do - Which I'd agree with, kinda stupid to make a comment when there's at least 6+ months left of development.

I don't see any evidence that he was de-modded apart from random users on Twitter.

This is the evidence used of him trying to start a 'console war' and 'lying' but I don't see at all how anyone could take that Tweet and say he's admitting to lying in it. I'm not sure how it is console warring either when he was specifically responding to a thread about "Realistically, how is Microsoft expected to compete with Sony next generation? Can they"

If there's anything more concrete then I'll be happy to dump him as a reliable insider.

Funny if this particular leak is accurate, since the original Xbox logo would be right at home on a can of Monster.

Maybe but his integrity certainly took a hit. Maybe a reason why?

All of his insider information is from a source from Capcom. And everything else is just wishy washy guesses.

Take with the usual grain of salt as far as I'm aware with these insiders. Its not he is lying or not, it could be all tales from his ass, all we can rely on is Capcom news/leaks as far as I'm aware.

Dusk Golem has been dropping accurate Capcom leaks for like 3 years. I see no reason not to believe him when he says that Capcom was struggling to hit native 4K on PS5 but hit it quickly on XSX. That is to be expected considering the specs difference, it's going to take more optimization to hit native 4k when you have 2 tflops less to work with on PS5. Hard to say if his source about MS being more willing to sell XSX at a loss than Sony is with PS5 is accurate or not, but at the very least it's safe to say he is reliable in regards to Capcom stuff.

I'd agree that his source about pricing could be unreliable given his main sources are Capcom and I doubt Capcom is really privy to the pricing of consoles.

It's also an easy guess, given Microsoft has delayed their pricing announcement from May to September in an effort to announce their price after Sony I think it's fairly safe to say that Microsoft is either attempting to price match or attempting to undercut them, with no Halo at launch I think they'll attempt to undercut them.

We'll have to wait and see, which at this rate, will be when the consoles launch and we get a bill which finally shows us the price.

This. His been pretty accurate when it comes to Capcom leaks all along, and now all of a sudden when he says something good about xbox and not even something bad about PS5 his full of shit.
