Ever since the announcement of the PlayStation 5 hit the internet, video game players everywhere have been trying to figure out how they will afford the newest console.
Initially, people speculated that the PS5 would retail anywhere between $600 and $700 but the current economic decline has no doubt made consumer brands rethink their prices.
According to CNET, $399 will be the pre-order price for the PS5 without the Blu-ray feature. If you choose to have Blu-ray, it will cost you $499. Gamers will be able to place their orders just in time for the holidays.
Over the years we’ve seen some expensive consoles. But if brands want to stand a chance in this economy, they need to pick their battles—be overly expensive and shutout more consumers or be affordable and cash out on be attainable for more people.
It’s without a doubt that the biggest draw to PS5 is Spider-Man. The new Spidey will allow players to play with Miles Morales who gained mainstream appreciation after the movie Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse received great praise.
