PS4 undercut the Xbox One by $100 when they could have easily gotten away with $50.
Everything we've heard so far points towards Sony being extremely aggressive towards dominating the market with the PS5, and the best way to do that is through pricing, especially when they have a perceived weaker console in their hands. Now they also have to contend with a lower priced Series S.
Not to mention, historical data shows that consoles priced between $400-$450 (or lower) generally find mass market success.
Get PS5s for all. Be a better fatherMan the series S looks great for my kids.. except it's all digital. I went mostly digital this gen but my kids still have 360/xbo discs they play sometimes. My wife and I are both getting the series x for ourselves, now I gotta decide what to do for the kiddos. Hmm
Uh 20m is LITERALLY 10s of millions. It's a multiple of 10....No. I'd say there's practically no way this even outsells the original unless it's very competitively priced.
A chunk of those were day one sales. A chunk were with consoles (no sign that's coming this time, but maybe). It sold 14m on a console with, what?, 100m or so sales at the time.
That's not to say it'll do badly, but if the original can't make 20m, there's no way this will. And even then, 20m is in no way tens of millions.
I have a PS4 and PC.Do you not have a current gen console? Cause can't you just play games on those if you don't care about graphics
Yeah, but you'd be laughed out of a sensible discussion if you used it like that. It'd be changed if you tried to put it in marketing copy, for instance.Uh 20m is LITERALLY 10s of millions. It's a multiple of 10.
500gb for an all digital has to be a joke
People need to stop saying PS4 undercut xbox one because it didn't, xbox one had a higher price because of the kinect
Sony is arragont as fuck, they will.
No it implies 20m or more. If it sold 10m two or more times over then it's tens of millions. If it sold 2m you can say it sold millions. If it sold 2 thousand you can it sold thousandsYeah, but you'd be laughed out of a sensible discussion if you used it like that. It'd be changed if you tried to put it in marketing copy, for instance.
Going "but it's a multiple of ten" for something which we're discussing in the context of game sales is a cop out. It's not tens of millions, its 20m. Tens of millions implies more (which is why the guy I replied to used it).
Please stop starting console wars, jeez...Someones gonna have to pay for that fancy new ssd and over the top new controller.
Right, it implies 20 million or more. It could be 20m, it could be 90m.No it implies 20m or more. If it sold 10m two or more times over then it's tens of millions. If it sold 2m you can say it sold millions. If it sold 2 thousand you can it sold thousands
You started the arguing on this point so don't call it ridiculous now. I disagree with your assessment of what someone in their right mind would use 20m for. I've always used it for once we reach multiples of anything. I've definitely said a game has sold millions when it reaches 2 million before and thought nothing of itRight, it implies 20 million or more. It could be 20m, it could be 90m.
Nobody in their right mind uses it for 20m. It should be obvious why that is, and I'm not sure why you're arguing over such a ridiculous point? Your Achtually post isn't correct in almost any context. Even marketers wouldn't use it how you're saying to use it.
Me starting a console war lol. If anything your last sentence was more war starting that anything I’ve ever said. Get real buddy.Please stop starting console wars, jeez...
There's no way Sony is answering with a higher price, if they haven't done it this gen then they won't ever again, as they've learned from the PS3. They'll follow what they've been doing for the last 7 years, by announcing either a $399 price tag and losing a lot of money per unit or $449.
$599 is completely off the table, they're not asking more money for less power. They're not MS...
In that specific scenario then sure but didn't they say current gen would play the games for a couple years?
Games release on Tuesdays many times. Guess maybe they're trying to match up with a COD or something?What is with the 10th November release date? Is a Tuesday likely? I guess it doesn't really matter what day but I thought they did console releases on Fridays for the 2-day weekend?
If XSX is $499 , then the price range for PS5 must be around the +/- $50
$450-$550 for PS5 is totally fair and better than the $600 predictions that ppl were worried about...
On my GPU calculations based on last gen, it's the XSX that's already taking a signficant hit, PS5 could be possibly on the same price or slightly less, its the most important division Sony has, but it could be anything:
1) Sony taking big losses per unit and using its market power to have a huge gap lead like the current generation
2) Sony selling at the same price as XSX without big losses and using its market power to still have lead over Xbox in a smaller margin
3) Sony taking zero loss, being more expensive than XSX, and accepting a second place but with profits from the start and likely just a bit behind of Xbox due to its market power. I think this is a least likely scenario.
