A few days ago Wired magazine had a scoop on the PlayStation 5 which revealed the some impressive technical details including a SSD hard drive, 8K output, and fancy ray-tracing graphics. However, the price was not mentioned which led us to ponder how much it would cost.
Peter Rubin from Wired has now tweeted a transcript of part of the interview that was not published and includes a comment regarding the price. Mark Cerny was asked how much the new console would retail for and replied “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.”
That does sound like the console might be rather pricey at launch, but Sony will have to keep the cost down as much as possible to get early adoption.
