In addition, the text states that large parts of the launch games for the PS5 will also be available for PS4, and that Sony awaits announcement of the price of Xbox Series X to decide the final value of the Playstation 5.
As the game developer Mike Futter pointed at your Twitter, $ 450 Dollars would be the basic production price of Playstation 5, a value that would reach even higher to the final consumer considering the packaging and distribution of the device. According to Futter, “$ 450 dollars is not where the price [do PS5] ends, but where it starts.“
People are misunderstanding a report about PS5 components.
If the console mfr costs $ 450, there is still packaging, shipping wholesale, and retail to consider. $ 450 isn’t where the cost stops… it’s where it starts.
