Those of you who own a PlayStation 5, we have great news for you before the 2020 release date of the console. The PlayStation is set for a fantastic reveal, and fans have been talking about the price of the console. However, there is one thing that is staying in our way: the conflict trade between the US and China. Sony has recently said that the PlayStation consoles would cost more if the higher tariffs were imposed on Chinese goods.
This will definitely have an impact on the price of the PS4 in the short-term. However, when it comes to the PS5, it might affect the price in the long-run. But we also have some great news when it comes to the price. The Trump administration has delayed the introduction of the tariffs on certain items, because they are still talking about this. This also includes video games consoles, which is excellent news for you.
The increased tariffs will come on the 15th of December, instead of the 1st of September. Sony hopes that the delays will give China and the USA some time to figure their things out, because otherwise, we might have to pay a lot for the PS5.
So what’s the price?
Previous predictions have shown that the PS4 would cost up to £400. Anything that’s higher than that would be harder to sell. It was revealed that the PS5 will come with support for 8K resolution, and will have a much faster loading time.
The loading times would be possible only because there’s the specialized solid-state drive. This will make a huge difference when it comes to the processing speeds.
Let’s take a clear example. In Spider-Man on a PS4 Pro, it can take up to 15 seconds to fast travel from one location to another. However, on PS5, you will be able to do the same thing in less than a second.
