The next generation of consoles is already a reality, and both Sony and Microsoft are finalizing the details for the presentation and subsequent launch of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X respectively. But, although it has been confirmed that both machines will arrive at the end of 2020, there is still much unknown information related to both the consoles; and one of the most important is the sale price they will have. In this regard, new information arrives today from one of the boss of Sony for PS5 price.
According to the website VGC, it has been Sony’s chief financial officer, Hiroki Totoki, who has spoken about the price of PS5 at a conference aimed at the investors to report the results of the third quarter of this fiscal year. The price of PlayStation 5, as Totoki explained, has not yet been decided and will have to be set according to various factors that must be balanced. Among them, an important one will likely be determined by the Xbox Series X price.
“What is not very clear or visible is because we are competing in the space, so it’s very difficult to discuss anything about the price at this point of time, and depending upon the price level, we may have to determine the promotion that we are going to deploy and how much costs we are prepared to pay,” says the executive. “So it’s a question of balance and because it’s a balancing act it’s very difficult to say anything concrete at this point of time.”
“But when I said smooth transition, we mean that we will definitely choose the optimal approach and that we will try to have the best balance so that we will be profitable in the life, during the life of this product” explains Totoki.
Thus, it seems that the price of PlayStation 5 has not even been decided internally, and it depends on various factors beyond Sony’s control. In this way, we will have to wait for the console to be revealed in great detail and Sony finally deciding what the price of the console will be.
