I really hope they don't remove anything from the console because of that. If the software (features and games) is impressive, people will not complain about paying $500. That's why they need some heavy hitters like Horizon 2, or something of that caliber
I doubt they will remove anything. The cancelled camera feature seems to be about dedicated cameras and not PS5.
Also, hopefully this means the PS5 won't be as insanely loud as the PS4:
Most of the components for the console have been locked down, the people said, including the cooling system, which is unusually expensive at a few dollars per unit. Typically, companies would spend less than a dollar, but Sony opted to lavish more on making sure heat dissipation from the powerful chips housed inside the console isn’t an issue.
I just realized; Control GOTY Edition with Ray Tracing... alright looks like I'm gonna hold on a bit longer.Some very quick notes from Remedy 2019 results
- Expect Control to be ported on PS5/Xbox Series X
- Project 3 (the next new IP after Control) and Project 4 (a multiplayer service game) are on preproduction
- 2020 will be CrossfireX and Control expansions only but they are expecting a better year financially
- They earned 5,2 M€ net profits in 2019, despite Control not setting the charts on fire
- 248 employees (24% growth in 2019)
Media Molecule is constantly praised for their past work and the creation platform they have given with Dreams, but the experience they delivered with Art's Dream is by far their shining moment as a studio. It just feels like a culmination of fun, creativity, and genius that leads to a very special and touching final piece of the game that leaves just think back at the whole thing and going "....Wow."
499 would be like PS4, at loss but with a game, it’s profitable
I don't think you should include marketing and R&D, because Sony don't pay this price on each console.
No, 450$ bom is not the final price. You have to add retail, shippment and other costs. They will lose money even at 499.I don't think you should include marketing and R&D, because Sony don't pay this price on each console.
With shipping, retailer cuts and other spending on each unit, PlayStation 5 would be profitable on each unit at $499 since launch. At $449, it would probably take arround one year to become profitable on a unit basis.
You seem to point that as a proof that Sony made mistake by staying silent.
He is CFO, so is talking about the investers stand point. He is not wrong, it just a diffente part of the companys future.You seem to point that as a proof that Sony made mistake by staying silent.
(Btw, just a friendly remember that back on the same day in 2013, we known less about the PS4 than we know about the PS5 today).
Well, it's also said that this "has caused some consternation internally"
So if he is the only one to point that, maybe he is the one who is wrong ?
But he is not "right" either.
