PlayStation Boss Comments On PS5 Price

By Zuhaad Ali

We’ve finally got our first look at the brand-new Sony PlayStation 5 console during The Future of Gaming event. Along with that, Sony also revealed a bunch of official peripherals for the PS5 including, a DualSense Charging Station, Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, and Media Remote. What Sony didn’t reveal was the price of PS5 console…which was kind of a bummer as most of us were expecting the price as well.

SIE CEO Commented On PS5 Price

Sony PlayStation 5 PS5 Price

In an interview with BBC, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan, suggests that PlayStation 5 price will be a bit on the higher end. Although Ryan didn’t disclose the exact cost of the PlayStation 5 console, he did mention that they are getting the value of the console right.

“Conventional wisdom and history show that our business is one of the more recession-proof businesses. But I think this will sharpen our need to ensure that we focus on getting the value equation right. And I emphasize value as opposed to price.”

“We must be more attentive than ever before to ensure that the overall value proposition in terms of the console and the games – the range of games, the quality of games, the quantity of games – makes this something that our community aspires towards.”

Recently, an online retailer store Play-Asia listed PS5’s price at $699. The price was removed shortly after suggesting that it be a placeholder. Other than that, we’ve seen a lot of interesting titles during the reveal event including Horizon: Forbidden West, Spider-Man: Mile Morales, and Kena: Bright of Spirits.
