Getting the Value Right.
We’ve finally got our first look at the brand-new Sony’s PlayStation 5 console during The Future of Gaming event. Along with that, Sony also revealed a bunch of official peripherals for the PS5 including, DualSense Charging Station, Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, and Media Remote. What Sony didn’t reveal was the price of PS5 console…which was kind of a bummer as most of us were expecting the price as well.
SIE CEO Commented On PS5 Price
In an interview with BBC, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan, suggests that PlayStation 5 price will be a bit on the higher end. Although Ryan didn’t disclose the exact cost of the PlayStation 5 console, he did mention that they are getting the value of the console right.
“Conventional wisdom and history show that our business is one of the more recession-proof businesses. But I think this will sharpen our need to ensure that we focus on getting the value equation right. And I emphasise value as opposed to price.”
“We must be more attentive than ever before to ensure that the overall value proposition in terms of the console and the games – the range of games, the quality of games, the quantity of games – makes this something that our community aspires towards.”
