As long as it’s not $599 again...

We have received a lot of information on the PS5 out of nowhere today—dev kits for the console are being sent out, the system will have VR compatibility, backward compatibility, ray tracing support, an SSD… it looks like it will deliver a lot of incredible features when it’s out.

Which means it also may not be cheap. While the Wired report that spilled the beans on what to expect from the PS5 doesn’t go in-depth on possible pricing, the writer for the report, Peter Rubin, shared an exchange he had with Mark Cerny, the lead architect of the PS4 and the PS5, on the possible pricing of the system.

“I believe that we will be able to release it at [a price] that will be appealing to gamers in light of its advanced feature set,” Cerny said. When asked if this meant it would be expensive but worth the entry price, Cerny declined to comment.

As excited as I am at the sheer amount of hardware pizzaz included in the upcoming console, I do hope Sony does not get carried away and overprice the machine. The last thing we need is a repeat of “$599”.
