Based on rumors and specs its gonna be $499. Better start saving up.

@Kidfried its not confirmed obviously but very likely. Id love $400 but if $500 gets us a sleek looking, properly cooled powerful beast so be it.

Let me think about this logically.

The money my wife spends on unnecessary products.

Cigarettes. $65
Sheets. $120
Pokemon Go. $ I'm trying not to think about it.
Nail Polish. $ 🤦‍♂️
Phone. $1200

Point being, is it worth a thousand plus? Yeah. Do I want to pay that? No.

I'd be comfortable paying up to $600 including a game. I use my PS4 every single day.

I'm going to wait to see what games are coming and maybe wait a year or 2.

Can't wait for PS5!

@Frigate Yeah I agree. I know some people begrudge spending a substantial amount on tech, I was the same when I had less disposable income. But these days I don't mind spending a bit more to get some thing of a higher quality. If I think how many hours I play on my ps4 (roughly 20 - 25 hours in a normal working week), I don't mind paying more for a PS5. I would be very surprised it comes under 500 quid.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@JohnnyShoulder actually I can live without the microphone. But everything I have heard so far like the wireless VR, no loading, 4k standard, 4k Blu Ray player, power of the cpu etc. Its gonna be great. We are all big gamers here so this is the first time since the Gamecube I'm getting a console day 1. Let's go!!!

@themcnoisy I moved our discussion here, cos you know you were spamming the PS4 section. Apart from the wireless VR (which is only a patent so there’s no guarantee that it will be turned into a final product, even if the idea of a new headset does seem inevitable.)we pretty much knew all of that anyway. Did you not pay any attention to the earlier announcement, or have you been playing Dreams for that long?

Agree $500 is a good price if they include a few exclusive games.

@philip_austin Realistically it will most likely be at least that price but with no games. With games costing 60 quid on release this gen and the tech in the consoles, I think it is unrealistic to expect it cost much less or for a few games to be thrown in.

tbh 500 is a fair price just for the specs alone without any games included.

i would be suprised if it's less than 500.

expecting it to cost 400 is just unrealistic imo.

I agree with the price thing, A PC with this kind spec is much more expensive than this price tag.

A PC would run $1399 easy or more. I go for $449 myself.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

I'm dating 499 for disc option (same for Xbox) and 449 for digital only.

$499 for the physical version or no sale. I don't want the digital version because I want to actually own my games and anything more than $499 is too expensive to be worth it. If it ends up being more than that, I'm probably going to wait a year or two and see if I can get it on a Black Friday sale or something.

My limit is $600 but im confident the console will be around $499. That said if the console ends up being $600 I'll have to wait 1 or 2 years for the cheaper Slim version.

Despite hearing and seeing all of the recent rumors and dummy/fake listings, I still have high hopes Sony can manage to launch this at $500.

However if it comes down to it, I'll happily pay $600! I must play the Spider-Man: Miles Morales spinoff game without being spoilered first.

I'd be happy with 500, seems like the right amount. I know people are saying that the specs would make it higher than that because of the equivalency with a gaming PC, but it's not a gaming PC at all. The fact that it is a console with locked in features means it should be cheaper than a PC.

I won't buy it on release this time as I did with the PS4. The first model I had was so temperamental, with its crazy screaming fan and spitting out discs randomly. Couple of years down the line I upgraded to the Pro and it was much better, but I did feel a bit annoyed about spending so much money on release for the headaches it gave me.

Did anyone see the leak where Amazon France list PS5 and €499 and €399? Who knows if it's true or not. I'd be surprised if digital is 100 cheaper.

@Arugula I wouldn't pay much attention to these leaks we are seeing from retailers. I've seen anything from 399 to 699. One of them maybe right, but that will be down to just luck and coincidence, not to them knowing any inside information.
