Cost of the PlayStation 5: Sony chief architect Mark Serni revealed the first details about the PlayStation 5. In an interview with Wired, he spoke about the guts of the console and some of the features but did not remember the price of the device.
What is known?
As it turned out, the journalist asked Serni about the cost, but Sony asked this part to cut. Yet the author of Wired shared a passage on Twitter. Then the architect of the PlayStation said that:
“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”
Behind such vague wording may be a hint of an increase in value. Cerny himself did not deny the possible increase in prices but said nothing more.
Experience shows that Sony announces the price of a new console after the official announcement, so Cerni’s silence is not surprising.
