    This is the same company that gave it's fanbase blue-balls back in January with a logo. A fucking PS5 logo! A logo that isn't significantly different than the current one.

    So, I put nothing past Sony...:yep2:

    I'm mean there is no reason to hold off on pricing anymore. They know what price(s) their competition is at.

    Also the leaks from retailers around the world are coming in fast so no real point hiding it anymore.

    And then... AND THEN!!! They mocked us by revealing the PS5 hardware coming out a sea of... BLUE BALLS! Fucking genius but oh so cruel.

    Yup... :lol:

    Anyhow, more than likely they will announce the pricing tomorrow. I'm just being pessimistic at the moment.

    At the very least they'll announce when they plan to announce the price. :p Or maybe have you sign up to be the first to know.

    Right. And at the start of the year when Microsoft were doing weeks on weeks of marketing and information sharing, Sony said literally nothing. Sony are on their own bonkers timetable but if you look at big sites like IGN and what's trending on Twitter trending, PS5 is dominating. It may be bonkers, but in terms of keeping talking about your imminent product, it's working.

    If we get to 22.00 BST today and still not know price, release date or even pre-order date, I would't be surprised. This event is being pitched as being about games and the only reason I think Sony may talk release and price info is because unlike earlier events they have not managed expectations about what not to expect.

    We still have have the teardown and if this takes place real soon, like next week, a price and release date may a week. Looking back at PS4's reveal in February 2013, shows almost all the features of the OS and this far Sony have not showed the PS5 OS or it's features, have not showed backwards compatibility and how they will work, they have not showed the loading times for PS4/PS5 games and I feel the price, pre-order date and release date really need to come once all this info is shared. Then the narrative will be "here is all this cool technology, now you can pre-order it for X on Y date and we'll release globally on Z date".

    Don't like Sony way of communicate. I prefer a more transparent approach. Another reason to give MS my money this time. I find MS a more serious company.

    You realize that this would cause fans to react and be upset with Sony, right?
    The cost diference between consoles (the BD player cost), can justify 50 dolars, and people might even accept 100 since digital gives extra profits to Sony, but never ever 150 dolars. That would create a wave of people not happy with the move that could cost Sony a lot.
    I would go with 399 / 449 or 399/499.

    You mean the guys who only revealed they even had a second console because it was leaked, two months before launch? Ok!

    seems pretty transparent to me. Whatever they are using for privacy isn't all that opaque

    Controlled leaks are more translucent.

    XSX is targeted to people that are interested in the technological aspect of the console... XSS not. So MS did what was possible to explain, to give tech details and such for the product that we are eventually interested. Sony did not.

    Multi-billion dollar companies cannot have their strategy dictated by a bunch gobshites on the internet. If they tell everybody tonight that they'll release price and dates next week, it'll be fine. People were upset with Sony earlier in the year for staying quiet and yet that doesn't seem to have stopped interest in PS5 being greater than Xbox.

    Can't disagree more emphatically, but that's the beauty of having different opinions! :)
