PlayStation 5 will be an expensive piece of equipment ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

PlayStation 5 – or whatever the next Sony’s home console will be called – has been in the spotlight since the very first official details emerged. Yesterday we reported on the information regarding the newest device that was shared by platform’s architect Mark Cerny in an interview to the Wired magazine.

We’ve learned a lot, that’s for sure. The console is going to be exceptionally powerful and capable of running the games in 8K. At its core lies an impressive set of computing parts, as the next PlayStation is being built around the AMD Ryzen processor with 7-nanometer Zen 2 architecture while the visuals will be handled by the Radeon Navi graphics chip. There’s another huge improvement – a custom SSD solution for the console that will leave the long loading screens back in the past. With that in mind, there’s a fair question – how much is this monster going to cost? It’s rather obvious that the current pricing of PS4 Pro at $399 will not meet the expectations of Sony if applied to powerful PS5. Mark Cerny didn’t reveal any specific details regarding the potential price, although he did make it clear that the console will cost a reasonable amount of money for its high-end hardware filling.

Wired’s senior correspondent Peter Rubin has shared an unpublished conversation with Mark on Twitter, and Cerny indeed said that the next PlayStation will have a price tag that will match its “advanced feature set.” In other words, the console is going to cost more than we are used to.
