However, there are rumors that the Corona Virus accident will postpone the release, but it seems that will not happen.
Selling Price of Playstation 5
Sony has not officially confirmed the selling price of the PlayStation 5 (PS5), and according to the company, this is because Sony has not really decided how much this latest generation console costs. In its quarterly earnings report (through the Spiel Times), Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki revealed the company had not set a PS5 selling price on the market.
“The reason the price is not so clear is because we are competing in a vacuum, so it is very difficult to discuss anything about prices at this point, and depending on the price level, we might have to determine the promotions we are doing and how much we have to prepare. to pay, ” Hiroki Totoki explained.
“First, we must really control labor costs, personnel costs, must be controlled, and initial increases, how much can we prepare initially, we will work on production and sales and we must prepare the right price when we launch this , ” Hiroki Totoki continued.
While Sony may not have set a clear price, there are the latest rumors about how much the PS5 will come out on the market. One leak revealed that the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console would have a selling price of around $ 499 (6.8 million rupiah) in North America when it was launched. Of course we don’t have to believe this, but it will be good news if Sony launches the PlayStation 5 at the price of $ 499, because $ 499 is only $ 100 more expensive than the launch price of the PS4 and PS4 Pro.
