Important details have emerged regarding the Playstation 5 price and planning which came to the agenda with the DualSense controller and is expected to be released at the end of the year.
Important news about Playstation 5 price and exit period planning started to come. Bloomberg announced that he had to cancel some of Sony's activities regarding the emergence of the console and the planning period, but it is still planned to be released later this year.
According to reports, the production of Playstation 5 for the first 6 months will be almost as much as Playstation 4. It is planned that Sony will produce 6 million Playstation 5s by 2021. When we look at Playstation 4 production in the same period, we see 7.5 million productions. It is stated that the difference is due to the increase in costs, the price of the console and of course the people shopping less due to the epidemic.
On the other hand, the most curious point about the console is, of course, whether there is any delay. Observing its rivals in this regard, Sony would not be willing to postpone Playstation 5, if there was no delay on the Xbox wing. Of course, as I mentioned at the beginning, the COVID-19 outbreak caused many activities and PR studies to be disrupted. For example, a larger announcement was planned for the DualSense controller, which was announced recently, but it is said that this launch was canceled due to the epidemic.
Finally, it has been stated that game makers' estimates of console prices are in the band range between $ 499 and $ 549. Damian Thong, an analyst at Macquarie Capital made a statement about this as “I think both the PS5 and Xbox Series X may end up at US$450 even though they would lose money at that price.”.
Sony has publicly cautioned on the gaming front that the COVID-19 pandemic may impact the game development pipeline for titles bound for its next console, which is a problem that the industry as a whole is grappling with.
