Oh god, right here we go once more. The PlayStation 5 is presently up for preorder on widespread import web site Play-Asia, and it ain’t low cost. For these of you within the US, the next-gen console (that is the usual version with a disc drive, not the digital version) is priced at a whopping $699 — roughly £585 right here within the UK.
However earlier than all of us begin panicking, let’s keep in mind that retailers love beefing up placeholder worth tags. Sony hasn’t introduced the PS5’s worth but, so it is seemingly that Play-Asia is simply kicking issues into gear. Earlier this week, Amazon UK arrange a bunch of product listings for the PS5 and its video games, however the firm shortly confirmed that it was all in error.
The underside line is that we do not know what the worth of the PS5 is till Sony makes an official announcement. Having mentioned all that, we’re beginning to wonder if the PS5 might be dearer than anticipated — particularly since a second, digital-only mannequin has been revealed. Sony Interactive Leisure CEO Jim Ryan has additionally acknowledged that the system is all about worth over worth, maybe getting ready followers for an costly launch.
$699? We do not fairly see it, however at this level, we do not suppose that the PS5 goes to return low cost.
