If Coronavirus doesn't screw us, we will even receive the new generation consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X) at the end of the year! Most likely 1 or 2 months before Christmas.
However, it seems that the launch will not be as massive as what Sony would have wanted, since production will be limited at least until March 2021. So Sony had to find a solution… Something that involves falling prices current PS4 and PS4 Pro.
Limited stock of PS5 until March! So the PS4 will drop in price!
Therefore, the famous Bloomberg came to talk about Sony's plans for the new generation of consoles, immediately stating that production will be limited until March 2021, since the brand will only be able to produce between 5 and 6 million units (this number was between 7.5 and 8.5 million at the time of PS4).
As for the price, it seems that things are not easy either, due to the difficulty of production and the difficulty of taking the components to the assembly lines. As a result, costs have soared. Still, the price should be between € 499 and € 549. (In my most honest opinion, PS5 should hit the market at € 499 or less, more than that would be a shot in the foot.)
Interestingly, Macquarie Capytal analyst Damian Thing says the price may even end up being lower, depending on what the rival does. That is, both Sony and Microsoft can choose to lose some money at the time of launch, to gain some initial traction. (Minimum € 450)
However, as most games will be 'cross-gen' (they will be released for PS4 and PS5), Sony will also lower the price of current consoles, to keep players within its ecosystem.
