- Sony will limit the initial production of the PlayStation 5 because it feels the system will have “ambitious specs” that will lead to a higher price point at launch, Bloomberg reports. The high specs might change the demand for the system.
- According to Bloomberg, Sony may limit its promotional plans for the system due to the coronavirus pandemic. Production, though, will not slow down.
- Sony plans to make between 5 and 6 million total units for the PS5 for the fiscal year, which will end on March 2021. The PlayStation 4, by contrast, sold 7.5 million units in its first two quarters.
- The system will have a high price tag, which could limit the amount of buys, too. Developers expect the system to cost somewhere between $499 and $549, according to Bloomberg.
What to expect next
- PlayStation 5’s mass production will likely begin in June, according to The Verge. This might mean the official unveiling of the system may come soon.
- Just recently, PlayStation released details of its new controller. According to The Verge, “the controller announcement is said to have come sooner because developers already had access to it.”
