The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have been under discussion for several years. However, the manufacturers have waited until the last second to confirm the price of the consoles.
If you've been dreaming of the PS5 for a long time, but you were excited about the purchase price, Bloomberg got the purchase values for the two iterations of the console, from a source close to the company.
Sony PS5 will hit stores before the end of this year. In just a few days, the company has scheduled a new press conference detailing many of the games that will be available at launch. At the same time, we will find out an exact date, starting with which you will be able to get your hands on it and, last but not least, the price.
Although we are not currently talking about an official price, Bloomberg is confident that we are talking about $ 400 for a PS5 Digital Edition and $ 450 for the standard version of the console. Most likely, these prices will remain in Europe as well, with the proviso that 400 dollars will become 400 euros.
As a reference, the difference between the two consoles is only the presence of an optical drive in the standard version, while Digital Edition forces you to buy the games in the Sony Virtual Store. and download them to the console. For Microsoft, the differences between the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series are in terms of performance, not just the lack of Blu-ray Play. For this reason, there is also a higher price difference between the $ X Series – $ 500 and the $ 299 Series S.
All in all, the PS5 costs $ 450, while the Xbox Series X costs $ 500. In a context where the technical specifications of the two consoles are similar, the future of the Microsoft console is not very rosy. Sony expects to sell about 11 million next-gen consoles by March 2021.
