PlayStation 5 price revealed by Bloomberg?

Bloomberg have published a new article about PlayStation 5 and Sony's current issues in finding an affordable price for its next-gen console.

According to writer Takashi Mochizuki, the biggest problem for the manufacturer at the moment is finding enough DRAM and flash memory: two components that are also important to the mobile sector, at a time when 5G is becoming more and more popular.

Kenichiro Yoshida of Sony is quoted as saying that what matters is not the number of consoles sold but the number of active users of PlayStation services.

In Sony studios, some think that the console should be sold at a loss (common practice in the industry) in order to align with Microsoft's Xbox Series X, while others would prefer to sell the machine in the same way as the PS4.


The article also tells us that the specifications of the console could be fixed, with first-rate water-cooling.

Sony could have decided on this in order to properly cool the precious components inside the console.

The PSVR 2 is also mentioned, with a release date that would be before the PS5.

Still, the manufacturer is quite excited, since there is mention of a "smooth" transition from the PS4 to the PS5. This means you can expect a lot of cross-generation games at launch, since most titles will be released on both machines at the same time.

According to Sony's CFO Hiroki Totori, plans for the next fiscal year will be presented at the end of April, if all goes according to plan.
