The PS5 is finally coming very soon! But the PS5 release date has yet to be officially announced. And like usually, this does not prevent internet users from making predictions about the future. Between official announcements and specialist speculation trends, we’re going to tell you everything about the PS5.
The PS5 is fast approaching but Sony still keeps a lot of surprises under the elbow
Jim Ryan, president of Sony’s video game subsidiary, made an announcement regarding the new console. But fans are worried because he will have been careful not to talk about the price. It seems relevant for Sony to insist on the value of the object before revealing its selling price. Because insist on capabilities of this new generation console can reassure future buyers. But the price then worries more, PlayStation fans expect the worst. However, it is a safe bet that it remains in a reasonable price range. Indeed, console prices generally oscillate around 300 to 500 euros. The Sony PS5 should be around these prices, except big surprise. Internet users imagine that it could reach 700 euros.
PlayStation fans can’t wait to power get the latest Sony home console. But it will not be for tomorrow. Because on June 11, Jim Ryan made an announcement confirming the arrival of the PS5 for the end of the year. So we have time to put aside to hope to enjoy the PS5 for Christmas.
Jim Ryan says more about the context of the PS5 release, without revealing its price
Questioned by the BBC, the director of Sony Interactive Entertainment reveals absolutely nothing about the price of the latter. However, he wishes to underline the current context and to recall the consumption habits of gamers. Similarly, he again emphasizes the difference between the sale price and the value of a product. Thus, the most informed Internet users believe that the price of the console will be high. But we also understand that two versions of the console will be offered to players. Two versions of the PS5 with different price ranges.

When Jim Ryan in his speech highlights the consumption habits of players, he thinks of a particular behavior. That of buying dematerialized games. The gamers who take the time to move around to afford a video game are indeed increasingly rare. Because it is to save time and a percentage of the price of the game to choose to download it from the store of the console. It is in all logic that some of gamers do not need to rely on the disc drive of their console. There is then an offer on two models. The first, complete, will therefore have a higher price than the second, the one which does not have a disc player.
The pandemic does not seem to have affected the future PS5
It should in fact be emphasized that the sector of home consoles and video games is not suffering from the health crisis in the same way as other economic sectors. Across the world, the trend is showing up to promote video games more and more. Whereas a few years ago, video games could develop dependence and isolation, they are now recognized as healthy outlets and hobbies with many positive consequences for the brain. More and more people are joining this large community of gamers. And new technologies allow consoles and video games to offer unique experiences.
During the confinement, consoles and video games allowed thousands of people to change their minds without having to move from their couches. While the economy stopped everywhere, that which comes from the sale of video games remained at the top. On the other hand, it is filming and studio work in particular that are obliged to suspend for a while for this sector too. But the PS5 does not seem to suffer any delay at the moment. His arrival is therefore still expected by the end of 2020. The ideal gift to put under the tree!
Experts agree to imagine the price of the new Sony console
However, for those who refuse to pay such a sum, they can take advantage of the lower prices of the PS4. Indeed, the arrival of the last console on the market always lowers the prices of the previous console. And video games are also dazzlingly realistic on the PS4. Jim Ryan shared also, during his speech, his feeling about the version that precedes the PS5. For him, it is not yet to be put away. These are immersive and realistic video games that are still available. And logically with that, the vast majority of PS4 games will be compatible with the PS5.

Finally, as for the design of the new Sony console, Internet users are divided. Indeed, waiting for revelations on the PS5 will have given fans time to imagine attractive concepts. And for the most part, they are then surprised by the simplicity of the real design of the PS5. However, it also reassures gamers on the price of the object because they can therefore hope that the PS5 cheaper than they could have imagined.
