We have seen reports of Sony possibly having issues bringing down the cost of the PlayStation 5. Other rumors suggest it can even be priced around the $549 range. So maybe Pachter has hit the nail on the head with his thoughts on the Ps5. He goes on to say;
“Microsoft’s being pretty smart about waiting Sony out here. From what I’ve seen, Sony’s going to have to charge $500 for their PS5, and Microsoft has a big balance sheet – if they want to cut the price by $100, just price below and subsidize the first ten million, they will.”
As we all know Microsft is one of the richest companies in the world. If any company can afford this type of initial loss it is them. Though considering how powerful the Xbox Series X is, be prepared to have $500 ready when you walk into your local retail store.
“So, I think that they’re waiting to have Sony blink first, and then they’ll reveal the price and the launch date. It’s going to be holiday, so very likely sometime in November, very likely $400. And fans are going to get a lot from their $400.”
