CEO of Sony offers PlayStation 5 Pricing and Value Proposals


Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, PlayStation 5 will still be launched this year but how much will this cost when it comes to launching?

Despite the COVID-19 challenges, Sony continues to plan to launch its PlayStation 5 console next-generation later this year (probably in November or December). The question is then, what is it going to cost? Sony CEO Jim Ryan gave some interesting remarks on the price of the PS5 and did not pay for it.

The price of PS5 along with the competing Xbox series X of Microsoft will become a significant feature. The two consoles enter a customized AMD silicon fray consisting of Zen 2 CPU nuclei combined with RDNA 2 graphics, with real time ray tracing hardware support. They also provide the mix with a strong state drive for far faster storage.

All this adds up, although in the past console makers had the will to make an initial hit so that as many systems as possible could flood the world market. The financial impact of Coronavirus adds a further wrinkle this time around. This time around. Ryan spoke about the issues and value proposition of PS5 during a recent interview with

"Recent history tells us that gambling in economically difficult times is one of the pastimes and one of the businesses," Ryan says. "Who knows how this recession will look, how deep it will look, and how long it will take. It could happen that the historic templates, the historical model that used to exist in the past can not apply to the future." "They don't have the money to get out of this country and so stay home."

In other words , social distancing can benefit gaming from a corporate perspective, but this could be offset in part by the tough economic environment. For Sony to decide how much to charge the PS5, this presents a particular challenge.

"In our region it means games, a number of games, a depth of the games, a spectrum of games, a quality of the games, a price of play ... all these things and the way in which you use the feature set of the platform," I don't necessarily mean the lowest price. "Value is a combination of a lot of things."

The intention of Sony from that comment is difficult to analyze. It sounds like the PS5 can debut at the same $399 price point when released, on one hand. But Ryan 's comments also open the door to a higher price, Sony relying as a justification on games and features.

Further muddling the water, Ryan talked about "games taking full advantage of the hardware" with "increasing development budgets," even if it won't be "a massive increase."

This depends in part upon the location of the Xbox Series X. The console of Microsoft has greater power than the PS5 graphics. If it starts at $499, as the Xbox One and Xbox One X both did, then gamers might be scoffing about paying the same PS5 fee. We 're only going to have to wait and see.
