    If they do not announce price they'll be making a fool of themselves.

    It's Sony's euphemisms for frustration All The Way Down.

    Sony's first party studio content surely needs to be factored into the analysis prior to making comments like this...

    Lets just say I could not disagree more. 150 dolars for any extra BD player that adds very little to the console and its great value is to use our current games library, is just to much.
    People can vote with the wallet. Microsoft digged a hole last gen due to that way of thinking.

    I'm not quite understanding the 150 dollars thing? It's not about the cost of the drive, or even the licences for Blu-ray/4K licensing, it is that by removing the possibility of the user being able to insert a borrowed / second hand / cheap sale disc and having to buy through Sony, they get not only the licensing fee but also the retailer cut. Based on accepted attach rates Sony are almost guaranteed a certain predictable income. By including a drive I can buy discs cheap, pirate them, or swap/trade them - none of which bring in any income for Sony.

    Dead conversation... The cost was 100 as predicted.

    I remove what I said. After what we knew from Sony last night, with their PS5 exclusives beeing cross gen, after promoting generations and separation, Microsoft message sudently seemed clear as water.
