If it's £500 then that seems reasonable. Obviously it would be ace if it was less. But inflation etc.

£600 would be pushing it but I'd still buy it. Any more and I'd have to question my life choices. Especially as I'll be buying two of them so my girlfriend doesn't get jel.

I think £500 is likely for the disc version - that is what I am planning for with my tiny savings. I do think the digital one will be a fair bit cheaper because a digital edition locks a user into the Playstation store and they will make so much more money off that customer in the long run.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

The bill of materials is estimated at $450 which converts to £364. Allowing for manufacture, packaging and distribution a cost of around £400 per unit seems likely. With software, accessories and continued sales of the PS4 which will be around for at least another year they can afford to take a hit if they want and sell at a loss initially. It all depends on how aggressive Sony want to be, how quickly they want PS4 owners to make the switch and to an extent what MS do because they can afford to lose a lot of money per console if they choose.

I think we'll see Sony taking a balanced approach at launch and sell at £399.99 for the digital edition and £499.99 for the disc drive model. They need to leave room for future price cuts and they'll want to imply a clear difference between PS4 and PS5. They're also a business and the console war is only forums not boardrooms, at these prices they can probably make a profit per unit on the disc model and break even or profit on the digital edition. They do of course have the giant revenue stream from PS Network which could offer more flexibility.

If they were to come out aggressively then I think £349.99 for the digital and £399.99 for the disc model.

For me personally the cost of the machine is irrelevant. I would like the disc model to be no more than £499.99 but have spent two years financially preparing for PS5.

$400-$450 with only the (disc) console and need accessories

$450-$500 with a bundle, preferably a game like Miles Morales or Ratchet and Clank.

Immediately after watching the Gran Turismo 7 trailer, the answer to this question was very briefly, anything ...

As my ps4 is on its last legs (I've had the blinking blue light of death a couple of times) and I'm not confident that it will last a great deal longer, I've decided to get a PS5 at launch. Not sure if there is a price which would put me off, but i am pretty sure it won't be a super high price.

@JohnnyShoulder Doesn't sound good! Mine crashes every few hours or so and if you're in the store more than 2 minutes, that doesn't end well either.

The price and release date are the least of my concerns. Primarily I want the launch lineup and I want to see the UI. Even though it's radio silence from Sony I'm getting more excited.

@Arugula I'm not too bothered about launch games as I can hopefully play most of my PS4 games. Date would be good to know so I can book time off work as I will most likely order it from Amazon.

@JohnnyShoulder See, that's my thing with BC. If I'm playing PS4 games, why did I just buy a PS5? It's a cool feature that will please many people but just have to have some PS5 only games with my new system. I'm going to try and get one over the counter. It's just more exciting for me that way. I'll know for sure when Sony deems us worthy for more details.

@Arugula Yeah I won't only be playing PS4 games on my PS5, just maybe when they are quieter periods and there are no games that I fancy on PS5. Plus it will be good to play them with whatever boost is available on PS5.

Not sure what the climate will be like when the console is released in regards to covid 19, it could be that stores will not be open. And I don't really fancy lugging round a 500 quid console on the buses.

@JohnnyShoulder Ah, I didn't realise you didn't have a car. Yeah, probably best stick with delivery then. Hopefully your delivery guy isn't Jim Carrey.

@Arugula I did go into a store to get my PS4 though and lugged it home on the bus. Think it was a bit of an impulse buy and didn't think it through properly. Plus the PS5 looks to be a bit of a beast.

@JohnnyShoulder Good point. I should probably look into renting a truck to pick up PS5. Hopefully they have a forklift.

@Arugula Yeah I'm gonna need a cherry picker to get it into my flat.

@Arugula @JohnnyShoulder I launched a PS4 went in my bike basket no problem. Admittedly I had a long walk back pushing my bike. Do you think I won’t be able to get away with that again for the PS5?

Ryall

Arugula

@Ryall It really does look like a seriously bulky unit in comparison renderings. A bicycle basket might be a stretch.

JohnnyShoulder

@Ryall Think you might struggle with the PS5. Or get a bigger bike.
