Sony Wants to 'Focus on Getting the Value Equation Right' for PS5, Says Jim Ryan - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 02 October 2020 / 2,757 Views
Sony Interactive Entertainment yesterday had the big blowout event for the PlayStation 5, with showcasing dozens of games and unveiled the PS5 hardware. However, they did not announce the price of the PS5 or the launch date.
Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan in an interview with BBC explained with the current economic uncertainty it is very important they get the value equation of the PS5 right and it is not all about the price.
"Conventional wisdom and history show that our business is one of the more recession-proof businesses," said Ryan. "But I think this will sharpen our need to ensure that we focus on getting the value equation right. And I emphasise value as opposed to price.
"We must be more attentive than ever before to ensure that the overall value proposition in terms of the console and the games - the range of games, the quality of games, the quantity of games - makes this something that our community aspires towards."
It is very possible with him mentioning it is not about the price, it is very possible the PS5 will be more expensive than people are expecting.
The PlayStation 5 will launch in Holiday 2020.
