The PS5 price tag will allegedly be cheaper than initially planned after Microsoft revealed the Xbox series S and its budget £249 price tag. It had been rumoured that this past week would see Sony finally lift the lid on how much the PS5 will cost, with a PlayStation 5 price announcement tipped to have happened on Wednesday September 9 or Thursday September 10. If Sony had announced the PS5 price on Wednesday then it would have coincided with the original PlayStation celebrating its 25th anniversary in North America.
And it has been claimed that the stunning announcement from Microsoft led to Sony adjusting their pricing for the PS5.
According to a post by Gamereactor, an anonymous source claimed prior to this reveal the PS5 was planned to sell at a “considerably” more expensive price tag.
Since their initial report, Gamereactor went onto say that they’ve heard from “multiple” sources that Sony has adjusted their PS5 pricing.
It’s been claimed that the PS5 with a 4K Blu-ray disc drive will cost $ 499 – the same as the Xbox series X.
While the PS5 Digital Edition will allegedly be priced at $ 399.
This would mark a turning of the tables, as at the start of the last gen the PS4 launched at a price point $ 100 cheaper than the Xbox One.
But there is one key difference this time around, and that’s specs.
The main difference is with the GPU – as we all know from the Xbox marketing, the Xbox series X graphics processor is capable of 12 teraflops of computing power.
The PS5, meanwhile, is capable of 10.28 TFs but the Xbox series S is capable of just 4 TFs.
