Ever since Sony’s next generation console was unveiled in the PS5 – Future of Gaming people had been speculating on the price. Sony has been giving feelers that their latest console will cost higher than the PS4, but are mum on the actual numbers.
It seems however, that online stores have a better idea of the actual cost. Play-Asia, one of the biggest online stores for consoles, briefly listed a price.
The price has since been removed from the listing, but it matches with industry speculation of upwards of $600. This also lists only the Standard Version (with Blu-Ray disc reader) of the console and not the Digital Version.
Also, all PS5 related prices in Play-Asia like the DualSense controller, are still considered unofficial as Sony has yet to make an announcement regarding them.
The PlayStation 5 is Sony’s next generation console, harnessing the power of a custom CPU, GPU, and SSD with Integrated I/O for lightning-fast loading. The PS5 also offers deeper immersion with support for haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and 3D Audio, and an all-new generation of incredible PlayStation games.
