Sony's PlayStation 5 Pricing Strategy Reportedly Torpedoed By Xbox Series X/S Announcements
Since the Xbox announcement, Sony has been surprisingly quiet considering the price war tension has been released. An anonymous source familiar with the situation spoke to GAMEREACTOR
Now, new sources are coming forward explaining new pricing considerations for Sony. According to GAMEREACTOR, they are hearing that “Sony is considering pricing the discless PS5 at $399 and the premium edition of the PlayStation will match the Xbox Series X with a $499 price point.” Ultimately, Sony has not said anything for either, so do not put stake in any of this.
As we mentioned, it is interesting that both companies were seemingly waiting on each other for pricing. When a leak forced Microsoft’s hand, it could end up for the best as Sony may have had to drop their prices of the PlayStation to compete with Xbox. No matter what happens, keep an eye on HotHardware as we wait for Sony to make any announcement on the PlayStation 5.
