2 Reasons to Wait for the PS5 & 5 Reasons To Buy a PS4 Pro



Don't Wait if You Can't Spend a Lot

Don't Wait if You Can't Spend a Lot

We don't know what the PS5 price is yet, but you can count on spending a lot for this system. Even though consoles are typically cheaper than high end gaming PCs, it's still going to be an expensive system with all the specs that are listed. 

The PS4 started at $399 when it first came out, and the PS3 was $499 for the base and $599 for the higher capacity version. Sony clearly isn't afraid of pushing the price limits, though they specifically came in cheaper than the Xbox One X when they launched the PS4 Pro at $399. 

Microsoft currently tops the console price game, but a full upgrade for the next PlayStation will likely push the PS5 price to new levels. If you don't plan to spend $500 or more on day one, don't wait for the PS5 release date. 

With two versions of the console, one will likely be $50 to $100 cheaper, but we don't expect that any of these will be considered cheap when they first arrive. 

Expect to see a price drop a year later, but at that point, you're waiting close to 3 years for an upgrade if you aren't willing to spend a lot of money upfront.

    Any PS Vita owner would instantly agree that Sony has abandoned the handheld console years ago with no first-party releases. At the most, players get some great indie titles, Japanese games but Uncharted, God of War which got released along with the Vita are the only ones that are still available with no big announcements in sight. Despite all the negative criticism and backlash, Sony ignored them and focused on PS4 which seems to be their only strong product in the consumer market.

    The number of AAA exclusives Sony has is the biggest saving grace for the PlayStation 4 console and its lifetime is slowly coming to a close. The PS4 Pro and PS VR are already out to fill the gap before the big PlayStation 5 console is announced, possibly in 2020. The company seems to be slowly phasing out the PlayStation 3 console and the handheld PS Vita so that they could better focus on the newer platforms.
