Although Sony still has not quoted a price point, there is much to suggest that the rumors at the lower end of the scale are more likely to apply. According to the chief financial officer, the Playstation 5 is to be offered at an acceptable price. If it costs too much, you would delay the generational change.

The price range, which one finds in the rumor mill to the Playstation 5, is enormous. Some suspect that they will cost around 400 euros again. Others claim that the expected performance is in conflict. Up to 800 euros could therefore be due. Now, Sony's chief financial officer has joined the debate and denied high prices.

According to Hiroki Totoki, a more expensive console will yield a higher margin, which will also benefit investors more. Conversely, if the price was too high, users would delay switching to the new generation. Therefore one wants to analyze "the costs, the acceptable price in the market and the platform demand."

Totoki does not go into detail, but it sounds more like you want to offer the console for a maximum of 500 euros. This price concept has already brought a dealer into the game, was predicted by the game analyst Michael Pachter and is according to a survey of PC Games as a generally accepted price.

It would also be conceivable that Sony drives double-railed from the beginning. It could actually give up to 500 euros expensive PS5, but in addition a better equipped version based on the model Playstation 4 Pro. Because there faster hardware would be used, but this would cost accordingly. Rumors in the direction were already there – only no official confirmation.
