During an interview with the Games Industry website, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan may have suggested that the next-generation console might come in at a more attractive price than we expected.
However, it is important to note that Ryan did not mention any particular value, only saying that they will do everything in their power to make PS4 users "jump" to PlayStation 5 as quickly as possible.
Which leads us to believe that PlayStation 5 might not be that expensive?
Rumors and leaks about PlayStation 5 will be officially released during the holiday season of 2020. Despite the major improvements presented by the new console and all the possibilities it brings to the studios, there is a big question mark, its price!
Several rumors indicate that the PlayStation 5 could be the most expensive console in Sony's history, with a base price of around € 500. Therefore, it would not be surprising to see packages with extra commands and games reaching € 650 +.
However, Kim Ryan's recent statements make us believe that the PS5 release scenario is slightly different. With the ultimate goal of reaching an unprecedented level of membership, the PlayStation CEO may have left a clue about the price of the new console.
One of the big questions that "hangs" in the air is whether it will be beneficial to buy the console as soon as it is released, or whether it is better to wait a few months.
Other strategies to entice users to buy PlayStation 5
In addition to a possible attractive price, Sony will also bet on the amount of games available at launch. According to the CEO, developers are very enthusiastic about the development kit offered by Sony. It seems that the whole development process on the new console is much simpler and more practical than on PS4.
This way, we may see the next-generation console launch with a larger game library than would be expected. In addition, it is also possible that we will see several games exclusive to PlayStation 5.
