I agree with the price point of $400 to $450.. Though tbh, I would like if it was cheaper then that since the Switch's price point is around $300, so it might be under $400 because of Nintendo's pricing. Still; we'll see. *shrug*

I'm voting $450-$500. I do want it to be less, but I'm judging by what the PS4/PS4 Pro released at which was £350, and I expect the PS5 to be higher than that. Plus they don't use the current (at the time) conversion between US/UK, and price UK higher than what it would be I believe.

I forgot the PS4 launched at $399, so yeah that wouldn't surprise me to see this launch at something at or above that standard, especially if they have way more expensive hardware in it, in addition to more expensive controllers; speaking of which, I expect those to go up to Switch Pro Controller prices ($69.99) considering the new tech they intend to put in there as well.

I'm guessing 500+. Considering the backwards ability.

I doubt the BC would add much cost, if any. PS5 running PS4 games is not much different to PS2 running PS1 games; the systems aren't completely different like the PS3 was to other PlayStation systems.

My husband has the same thought though, but I said the same thing about how if it was backwards compatible that wouldn't be part of the reason for such a price hike. I'd think if it was $500 at launch it was because of what the specs for it is.

Yeah queen's right, the parts more than anything will hike the price up. However, they will always try to mitigate raising costs if they can be cheapening it elsewhere, so who knows what they'll remove/take out to do so. Hmm

A bunch of reports have it at $600 on Dec 4th. Idk, at $600 it'd be a hard pass from me for a while. More so since I could upgrade my pc for half that & just play any jrpgs that come to pc; or the Switch (Pro).

Yea; https://gamerant.com/ps5-price-leaked-by...-retailer/ I first heard about it from RGT 85 though.

(I'm taking it with a grain of salt. But, you never know..)

Doing a direct conversion of Euros to Dollars would be incorrect to do to guess a price. The PS4 launched at $399.99 in the US and €399.99 in Europe. However, current conversion rates would put it at almost $450 if you converted the Euro price to Dollars. It would be more likely for a €499.99 to be $499.99, rather than $599.99. The PS3 was the same, with both Euros and US Dollars being the same.

I also expect the date would be more in late November, which still qualifies under the Holiday season. December 4th is awfully late and if Microsoft released earlier (notably for Black Friday) then it would be likely to dent PS5 sales to some extent. Maybe not enough that looks like it should matter but from a business standpoint any lost sales matter.

Well, you know how it is with the next console generation; every time people are looking for pricing/date & usually most places that 'leak' aren't even close.
