https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-05-29-sonys-jim-ryan-its-time-to-give-fans-something-that-can-only-be-enjoyed-on-playstation-5

...Ryan wants to put that uncertainty to rest. PS5 will launch this year globally, and its first-party games are on schedule. But that doesn't mean it's been business as usual for the console maker...

...Back when we spoke to Ryan in the before times, he spoke about the transition between PS4 and PS5 happening "at a scale and pace that we've never delivered before." He says that ambition remains the same. Yet with the possibility of a deep recession, surely that poses a challenge when trying to sell a high-priced piece of consumer electronics?

"Recent history has told us that gaming is one of the pastimes, and one of the businesses, that benefits in economically difficult times," Ryan suggests. "It's quite logical, people don't have the money to go out so they stay at home. Now, who knows how this recession is going to look, how deep it will be and how long it will last. It could be that the historic templates, the historic models, that have applied in the past may not apply in the future.

"I think the best way that we can address this is by providing the best possible value proposition that we can. I don't necessarily mean lowest price. Value is a combination of many things. In our area it means games, it means number of games, depth of games, breadth of games, quality of games, price of games... all of these things and how they avail themselves of the feature set of the platform."

I'm taking that as it will $499 lol. Maybe $450, but I don't think the PS5 will be $400. What do you think the price will be, SW?

@pc_rocks: The console itself will be free, but for the SSD, which will be required, you need to pay $999

Been saying it for a year, it will launch at $499. If they didn't waste their time on the stupid ssd, and simply put a standard 1tb ssd, the console could've been $450 easily.

Appropriately value priced for a low powered next gen console that will specialize in movie/anime games, and third rate multiplats?

Pay me $300 and I’ll take it off your hands. Wait, poor online implementation and controller? Make that $500.

I was under the impression Sony wants to see what MS will price XSX first? But anyway, I'm still going with both will be price for $500.

Sevenizz, you was never ever going to buy PS5, even for $1 you still wouldn't touch it.

I’m expecting both the Xbox Series X and PS5 to retail at $499.

I feel like two things really contribute to comments like this.

1) MS doing away with exclusives.

2) Sony consistently putting out exclusives that get critical acclaim.

Lets see buffoon such as your self were defending a 40% weaker console with no BC,less games and $100 higher price tag in 2013.

I say the PS5 is a much better spopt just been 18% behind,knowing that at least when you buy a PS console fantastic high rated games will arrive period the xbox can't even guarranty that any more.

And to think the PS5 presentation hasn't even happen and already lemmings are damage controlling it,look at sevenizz for example calling the PS5 a low powered console,as if the xbox series X was 2 generations ahead in power.😂

And to think this was the same people who defended the $100 more expensive 40% weaker xbox one.lol

Yeah i am sure PC gamers will quit buying PC to play a game on a console that they can play on their PC.

Halo what most anticipated by who? You and other lemmings? Halo 5 sold like shit compare to how halo 3 sold on xbox 360,that should tell you something.

@subspecies: So that means they’re exclusive to Microsoft platforms? But you said Microsoft is doing away with exclusives. Help me out here - I’m confused.

What? MS did away with exclusives. You can play those games on all their platforms. Therefore none of said games are exclusive. What is hard to understand?

Um, really? It seems like the CEO of Playstation just made it very clear they are working on games right now exclusively for the PS5.

Both will be $499, and honestly if you have a problem paying that then you have other life concerns much deeper than gaming. Priced as of May 2020 to build an equivalent PS5 PC you would have to spend a minimum $1300 and by November that price to match will not magically come down to $499.

$500 most likely. I'm ok with that. Series will also be $500, maybe $550.

Most likely its not going to happen based on the description of the event.

That’s why I’m excited to share that we will soon give you a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday. The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware.

This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together. A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before. This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.

They clearly said they are wanting to move to multiplatform. They have already done so actually

Lol. I don't know.. I might be able to get use to that.. at least it's unique haha. But yea, that middle part would be the butt of a lot of cooking jokes.
