The PlayStation 5 remains shrouded in mystery, but the internet rumor machine is always hard at work, and new information is shared constantly. A reliable source, known for successful past gaming predictions, released some new details related to the upcoming console, ranging from possible release date to the supposed price per unit.
It is important to keep in mind the fact that predictions are nothing more than highly-educated guesses offered by people who have a large amount of insight on a given topic. They may be valuable and could turn out to be accurate in the long run, but it is important to avoid possible misinterpretations.
PlayStation 5 – Reliable Source Made Some Nice Predictions About The Next-Gen Console
Possible PlayStation 5 release date
The source claims that the gaming console will be released in 2020, on part with suggestions offered by other entities and just in time for the start of the holiday season. A different source which argues Treyarch, the studio working on the 2020 Call of Duty game, is confident that the title will be released on the present and future generation, a fact which further consolidates the validity of the claim.
The PS5 price tag
The price of a single PlayStation 5 unit would be $499 at launch, almost on par with the current price tag for an Xbox One X. It was also mentioned that Sony would aim to push at least 15 million PS5 consoles by March 2022.
The target doesn’t seem to be unrealistic if we take into account the fact that almost 100 million PS4 consoles were sold in less than six years. If the price doesn’t seem to be steep, the public is likely to embrace the device with enthusiasm.
It is already known that the upcoming PlayStation 5 will sport some impressive specifications, according to an interview offered by Mark Cerny, the lead architect of the device. One of the biggest boons comes in the form of much shorter load times. It remains to be seen if the console will manage to have an impact in the long run.
