Does that actually sound believable? B2B & B2C prices are obviously linked. It's just that you can't really deduce the B2B price from the B2C price but to say that there's no relation between them is hogwash.
I mean what you are saying sounds about right but I guess I am doing something wrong.
That meme came about because AMD and Nvidia GPUs were (and maybe still are?) overpriced for the area of silicon they use. Nvidia didn't have any competition at the high end of performance so were free to charge whatever the market would bear. That pushed prices up so much that even when AMD competes on price, it's still relatively expensive in relation to the silicon they use.
I hate how no one ever seems to remember the base Ps3 was 499. Kojima was right, memes have taken over.
I think anything new Sony’s first party studios announce after the reveal of the system will be PS5 exclusive.
will have a much weaker gpu than xbox one x - the cpu will be much more powerful
500 is totally normal in this era and considering the parts, 600 is just a suicide, 400 is is a loss for both gamers and Sony (a POS for gamers and a loss for Sony too).
“MICROSOFT’S NEW XBOX IS WEAKER THAN THE LAST ONE!” It won’t be true, but if it’s true in even one aspect they will print it:
The only reason I think it will be different is because they won’t be at E3, so unless they have two shows planned I think they would probably do it all at once.Sony unveiled PS4 months before talking about the price. They don't have to talk about the price for another 6 months. This half is to show the box, show what its capable of, get people excited - maybe a little bit try and emphasise the power/value so people start to expect it to be more expensive.
No one bought the base model... 20gb hard drive, no wifi, no ps2 BC, no expansion ports. I can't remember if it even came with USB or HDMI.
true - and the wired stuff is already showing/telling things much earlier than before. Maybe the core tech they've talked about is enough for them for now - and we won't hear from them at all until later (I hope not though)
Sony's not going to want to take a huge loss off of each console sold. That PSN revenue that they made from the PS4 will go bye-bye if they do, just like they completely wiped out all profits that they made on the PS1, PS2 &/or the PSP with the PS3 trying to keep that console afloat.
I'll wait for the inevitable slim model, thanks.
You mean timed exclusives? Or timed exclusive DLC? I mean yeah, that'll probably happen, especially if they get the Call of Duty marketing again.
It probably means that the rumors about Xbox Series being more powerful are true as well, if PS5 was gonna cost $400...there's no way MS was doing 2 models if the most expensive one was targeting $400 as well.
But do to rising income inequality the decreasing purchasing power of the average consumer is out pacing inflation.
I know this is basically port begging, but I really wish Sony would get on Microsoft's level and start releasing their games on pc as well as console, instead of pressuring people into spending hundreds of dollars on hardware they're likely going to be taking big losses on anyway.
Much like Nintendo, that'll never happen to the degree you'd prefer.I know this is basically port begging, but I really wish Sony would get on Microsoft's level and start releasing their games on pc as well as console, instead of pressuring people into spending hundreds of dollars on hardware they're likely going to be taking big losses on anyway.
