Sony’s two next-generation consoles, the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, have almost all the basics, but have never published the most critical “price.” Recently, Foreign Media The Verge famous reporter Tom Warren launched a vote “Sony, Microsoft, who will first announce the price of next-generation consoles?” And 56% of netizens chose Microsoft, and 44% chose Sony.
The Verge reporter Tom Warren’s “Who Will First Announce the Price of next-generation hosts” poll on Twitter on the 18th attracted tens of thousands of people, with netizens standing up to predict and have a heated discussion below.
Here’s a quick response from some netizens to the poll:
Ehthsham Shahzad: I think Sony knows that the PS5 can still be a winner even if it’s a little bit more expensive than the Xbox console. Just look at the scale of the two companies, and they (Sony) are actively increasing production capacity. So it looks like Sony will be the first to announce the host price, I guess it should be: the CD version of 500 dollars (about 3,500 yuan), the digital version of 400 dollars (about 2,800 yuan).
Cody Patterson: I think the way the publicity is based on which camp you’re in, probably related to the exciting news that I’m only focused on Xbox. But I still believe the PS5 will sell better for a simple reason, and for this generation of players, the PS Series host is more popular, whether it’s publicity or not (as it is).
Leonardo Oliveira: If the Xbox shows off in a jaw-dropping, they don’t even need to disclose the price of their Xbox consoles. Let Sony do it first, so That Microsoft can get ahead of it later. I bet the XSX will be priced the same as the PS5 digital version, and Lockhart will poke sony’s pain.
So who will, Sony and Microsoft, will give priority to publishing price information in this price war, do you think?
