Analysts believe Sony has the ability to sell consoles at a loss

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.

Coupled with the blow-up NVME SSD (possibly 1TB start), $599 is the normal price, which is a surprise. If it’s above $599… That more to buy, real so-eat how not generous for the company to share the worries? Smashing pots and selling iron is also at all costs.
