Earlier Bloomberg reported that Sony’s PS5 costs as much as $450 and the company is unlikely to sell at a price of less than $470. But DF’s analysts say the PS4 has been around for seven years, and the industry’s ecology has undergone irreversible changes in the period of time , such as the gradual withdrawal of physical sales channels, represented by GameStop, and the rise of paid subscriptions for XGP and PS Plus.

Analysts believe that Sony can strike a financial balance with the software-subsidized hardware’s ancestral formula if it wants to.
Microsoft’s Spencer has publicly admitted that the sale of the Xbox One X was not profitable at all, but the company is still pushing it out as a grab for the title of king of functionality.

In fact, the opponent’s pricing strategy is more influential than the cost. Both sides are spying on each other’s bottom line, and players will benefit from the fight.
