The expected price of PS5 is 50,000 to 60,000. This generation’s consoles are getting to be a touch costlier than their predecessors.
It’s speculated that the PS5 will cost around 400–450 USD for the Digital Version and 500–550 USD for the model with a Blu-Ray writer.
550 USD translates to 41,237 INR on the date of scripting this, but a bit like all the previous consoles we’ll add 10,000 INR to urge the expected launch price in India which is nearly 50,000 INR.
For context, PS4 launched for 399 USD = 29,911 INR as of scripting this and its launch price in India was 39,990 INR.
Some people have mentioned that the PS5 Controller, called DualSense, goes to possess haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, and is the main reason for the worth of the jump.
Well, to be honest, the controller won’t cause a bump of 10K within the price, moreover, we have already got haptic feedback in our phones, and adaptive tension technology is gaming steering wheels.
So you see it’s not some new groundbreaking technology we have already got it. And it costs not much to feature these in a tool as they’re mechanical components.
The biggest reason for this bump in price is the SSD. The PS5 at launch will feature a custom NVMe SSD of 825GB (PS4 launched with a 500 GB HDD).
We all skill expensive SSDs are, and this SSD is custom-built for PS5 with much higher performance than any current mainstream NVMe SSD for PC. there’s a worldwide shortage of non-volatile storage also and it’ll also affect the worth.
The expected release date of PS5 is 20 Nov 2020. Sony launched the PS4 in North America on November 15, 2013, EU, on November 29, 2013, and Japan on February 22, 2014.
The console launched in December 2013 in India and went on sale in January 2014. If information circulating the internet is to be believed, then PS5 will launch in North America and other key markets in November 2020, a week before Black Friday sales in the US to cash in on the holiday buying.
This isn’t confirmed, it is just us speculating. Other leaks suggest that Sony could announce the launch date and price of the PS5 on July 13 and considering Sony just gave us a few day’s heads up before the June event,
it is possible we will hear of this event a few days before its intended date.
