Sony’s not saying how much the PlayStation 5 will cost just yet, but it doesn’t sound like the system will carry an extortionate price tag. Speaking to investors as part of a financial briefing earlier today, the organisation explained that it’s focusing on market penetration and market acceptability with its next-gen hardware.
What does this mean? Well, effectively it wants to set a price that consumers will accept so it can maximise the device’s install base early on. Of course, this is going to prove a balancing act: the system sounds like an absolute beast with very little compromise on specifications, so it’s not going to be cheap. Affordable, though – that appears to be the aim.
