News about next-generation consoles is growing, but I believe that the most important concern for players must be the price of the console, recently there is media exposure ps5 cost of about $450, last night the Xbox Series X parameters were also officially released, its configuration is not cheap. IGN recently discussed the topic of next-generation host pricing, let’s take a look at the IGN’s editors’ views on this!
News editor Jonathon said, “If the PS5 were certainly the best price of $399 like the PS4 at the time, but as rumor has it, the cost of the console is around $450, it could be priced on top of it, and maybe even $500.” I think Sony may wait for Microsoft to announce the pricing of the new console before making a decision, because the PS3 cost Sony a lot of money at the time. It is possible that Sony may take a compromise position, not too high or too low, to attract users by exclusive games such as Horizon: Dawn 2. “
Executive editor Miranda commented on Microsoft’s new console: “The Xbox Series X could be priced at more than $450, because the Xbox One X was priced at $499 at the time, and there’s no reason why the new console would be lower.” If there is one possibility, it is a cheap version of the host, the configuration will be a little lower than the new host, of course, the price will be relatively cheap, $450 or $400. Plus there have been rumors that Microsoft will launch two consoles, the possibility is there. “
In fact, according to a previous Bloomberg report, Sony is also caught in a quagmire at the final price, which usually sets the host price in February and starts mass production in the spring, believing that it won’t be long before we hear the official price.
