PS5 Price: How Much Will PlayStation 5 Cost?
Sony has not officially confirmed the PS5 price yet, so we currently don't know how much the PlayStation 5 will cost at launch. System architect Mark Cerny has said that the price will be “appealing to gamers”, suggesting it shouldn't be too large a figure. However, the Japanese giant has also admitted that it’s targeting hardcore gamers first and foremost, so it’s not necessarily aiming for a mainstream audience at launch. In fact, boss Jim Ryan recently explained that the manufacturer is emphasising value for its next-gen format, suggesting that the price may be steeper than many had anticipated.
