Me: There's always been a general range of launch pricing. Will the next console hew to that range?@cerny: I believe that we will be able to release it at an SRP [suggested retail price] that will be appealing to gamers in light of its advanced feature set.Peter Rubin (@provenself) 16 April 2019
We can hope that the company will launch the PS5 with the price point of $399, similar to what they did with the PS4 launch. The reason behind this is the Indian buyers are not ready to invest too much in the console market and even $399 (Rs 39,990 approx) is a huge amount. There might be a possibility that the company will launch the console at the same price as PS4 and bring new bundle variants with a slightly higher range.
According to the report, the PS5 will be powered by a third-generation AMD Ryzen processor which includes eight cores along with nm Zen 2 microarchitecture. As far as the GPU concern, the console will make use of AMD Radeon Navi family with ray tracing support.
Let's see what Sony is going to bring with its latest console.
