Sony recently announced the prices for its next-generation console, the PlayStation 5. The PlayStation 5 will cost $499 and $399 for the Digital Edition. While these prices seem acceptable, the pricing for the games seems to have gone up to $70/€80.
It seems like the higher pricing is set to become a next-gen trend. The games showcased in yesterday’s PlayStation 5 announcement, Demon’s Souls, Destruction All-Stars, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition will all cost $70/€80. Sackboy A Big Adventure will cost $60/€70, but it’s not really a hot title.
Many fans seem to be disgruntled with this pricing, in addition to PlayStation 5 preorder woes. Many others have also pointed out that this is likely to be the trend for the Xbox Series X/S games as well. However, the Xbox platform has Game Pass, which adds a lot to the value proposition.
With these prices, picking the PS5 over the Digital Edition might be the smarter move. One is likely to get the hot titles for cheaper with discs as compared to the digital versions, not to forget the resale market.
