They won't sell it for less if the demand is still the same, it'll just mean they save money making them.To make it even cheaper. That was the main reason for Sony to release slim consoles in the past. Cut features, make everything cheaper in the build and sell it for less.
If you're going to get it eventually you are so much better off getting it now. So much better playing ps4 games on it then the ps4.Eh, its not like there is any must play game on PS5 anyway.

The problem with preorders is that people will get several then cancel, that creates an overhead expense. Additionally there will be so much demand that it only makes sense to pre sell known allotments. Amazon was/is doing that with CPUs and GPUs selling things they could ship in a month. Walmart sold me my PS5 in early December for delivery after Xmas and those still sold out in seconds.
Ha, good luck with that. You’ll either be waiting months for the graphics card that you want to be at a good price or you can get one now and be robbed blind.
I've read in places that the shortage may also have to do with the design of the console and the overall materials (plastic etc) in use being scarce.
This is all from Twitter and other forums so I don't think it's credible at all.

Anyway I'm glad to hear demand is high still. I'm going to buy another Ps5 later this year then sell my current one probably at Christmas when prices are high. Easy way to get a brand new console and renew the warranty without any extra cost.
I have a next gen console and I still think this whole new gen should have been pushed at least a year...
If they knew about the pandemic and shortages before hand you would get a better console on this supposed Winter 2021 launch date. Otherwise you are delaying them by a year and just getting HW closer to being obsolete… the manufacturing machine was already in motion when the semiconductor/parts shortages began. Stopping it and changing the HW at that point would have enabled very minor changes.Daftest hardware launches ever, what exactly is worth the cost of a console on either system? Should have both been delayed until at least Winter 2021.
The point is in 2 years you could pay the same price as today.I'm not getting a PS5 for the sake of playing PS4 games. If I eventually get it, it will probably be 2-3 years from now when the hardware matures a bit with a healthy amount of great games and perhaps slightly lower price.
Besides, its not like PS5 will cease to exist if I wait a little longer.
Right. Like they're not gonna misread the demand for those either.My decision to skip the base model and go straight to pro/slim seems to be a better decision by the day.
I'm assuming they'll hold something in Summer. They'll want to push Horizon 2, Deathloop and Ghostwire as their key exclusives for the rest of the year.I think god of war 2 will be cross gen, but will see if sony hold a play event or something for e3 next month cause at the min i cant see horizon, gow etc releasing this year when we havnt seen any gameplay etc and games which should have been out first quater 2021 pushed to latter 2021
The problem is they don't play by the same rules as everyone else internationally and locally the rules don't even exist.Maybe, but it sounds more like “free market == good until the other side is a threat/bigger and stronger” fears. So we like free market rules if they are a threat to others and not us.

I could have happily waited until holiday 21 to get a Ps5 if the gen was to begin then. But it didn't so I'd be crazy to to get it at launch and play my big ps4 back catalogue on it. Such a better experience.
Ratchet next month my first proper Ps5 game. I've played astros obviously. Control atm with the ps5 patch but it was built for ps4.
Gamer’s perspective. My own, as my post mentionedFrom what perspective? Sony and MS can't keep them in stock longer than a couple of seconds. Gamer demand is off the charts.
Why delay something that's so successful for them and their audience?
