Microsoft recently announced the price for the latest Xbox consoles. With the Xbox Series X priced at $ 499 and the Series S priced at $ 299, they’ve comfortably positioned themselves in the market. The ball is in Sony’s yard now. While PS5 and Xbox have their differences, price is always a major factor affecting sales.
Although Sony announced the PS5 some time ago, they haven’t released any details on the price. Given that PlayStation has its own fan base, it’s not particularly good when the competing console is in the spotlight.
However, with all the events coming up, fans may get the updates they want.
PS5 price prediction
The Xbox price disclosure has led fans to predict the cost of the PS5. In addition, the constant delay makes fans impatient and we don’t blame them! The predictions suggest that Sony is trying to rank the PS5 lower than or equal to the Xbox.

There are a few others who predict ranges rather than exact prices.
Most memes deal with delaying the reveal.
To be honest, I am considering buying an exercise bike. So I REALLY need Playstation to bring this PS5 price down so I can make some real choices.

While some users seem upset with the delay.
If Sony doesn’t announce the PS5 price and release it this Wednesday, it will be a huge waste of time. Games or hardware can be announced at any time, and it doesn’t matter if I don’t know how much or when I can even get the goddamn console … Sony stopped long enough

On the other hand, some users find humor in asking for the PS5 price all over Twitter.

While it seems like most fans already assumed the console’s price would be similar to the Xbox, they nonetheless hope there will be a drop to compete with the Series X. At present, the general consensus seems to be that that is built around $ 450- $ 499 Price range.
Fans can prepare for the showcase event on September 16 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time for a look at the gaming powerhouse.
