PS 5 Possible Price Increase for Membership?

Recommended Posts

I don't know the plans of Sony during the world undergoing the recession. I am wondering if in near future they may increase the prices for their products. 

Do you see Sony increasing the prices once the PS 5 hits the mainstream all over the world?

It wouldn't surprise me at all if they did. Corporate greed is higher than ever, and they know gamers that are die hard PlayStation loyalists will pay whatever price they set for their new systems. We're talking millions of systems sold in the first week worldwide. Multiply that by say, $650 per system, that's looking at $650,000,000 to start. That's not pocket change.

Indeed considering during the lockdown a lot of game companies are making more money than medicine companies. So kind of makes me think they may increase the prices in near time soon.

That would be incredibly unfair. If anything, Sony has benefited from COVID-19 in terms of gaming. More people are purchasing from the PS Store, why change something if it isn't broken? That being said, the demand is incredibly high so they can increase their prices and see no negative effect. 🙃

Oof. That would be horrible for those people that want to get it. I don't see my husband doing that unless a lot of his friends jump on board and get the PlayStation and he wants to game with them but even then he is going to be hard pressed if the price goes up.

I doubt it. They already did they market research to come up with the price they are at now for online services. They're already charging 400 - 450 for the console so it would be like a double-whammy to hike subscription costs.
