During a meeting with investors, Hiroki Totoki was asked if Sony plans to raise the price of the PS5. This was because the prices of other kinds of equipment may go up in the coming months. The finance director did not know how to answer this.
Sony released its financial results today, which show that the gaming department is having a hard time. The company, on the other hand, is going to put out more PlayStation 5s on the market, which should help the Japanese company do better.
Hiroki Totoki was asked at today’s meeting with investors if Sony plans to raise the price of the PS5. For now, the company’s chief financial officer could not give a clear answer.
“As for the potential price increase for the PS5, there is nothing concrete at the moment that I can share with you about the pricing” – Hiroki Totoki ( from VGC ).
Many people say that the CFO did not disagree with the information, which is very telling. In the past few months, people have said that as chipmakers raise their prices, semiconductor devices like the PS5 will become more expensive.
Glenn O’Donnell of Forrester says that chips will be 10-15% more expensive next year. This is likely to affect parts for PCs, toys, cars, home appliances, and, of course, game consoles.
