Game analyst at Wedbush Securities, Michael Pacter, shared his forecast for the PlayStation 5 with journalist Jeff Kayle during E3.
“PlayStation 5 – 800 bucks! Have you seen the characteristics? […] I do not know why you expect it to cost 300 or 400 dollars. I just do not know. […] They [Sony] We didn’t come to E3, because they don’t have good news to tell us. ”
Probably, Pakter is impressed with the characteristics, because PS5 is expected to support up to 8K resolution, ray tracing and SSD are promised. It is also worth noting that many spent over five years and large sums on, in fact, the same console. For example, buying upgraded versions of Xbox One S, and then also Xbox One X.
On the one hand, consoles have taught players one-time expenses without much need for improvement. On the other hand, there is a competitor Microsoft, which can release the console with a lower price and try to capture the market.
