Rumors surrounding the PS5 Pro have been around for some months now. Sony has not made anything official concerning the existence of the console yet. No one has any firm information on the specs, price or the design of the PS5 Pro at the moment. However, some rumors seem to carry extra weight, especially taking the sources into consideration. The most recent of such rumor has to do with the price of the PS5 Pro.
While news of the console’s launch is exciting, the potential price may dampen fans’ enthusiasm. Looking back to Sony’s old culture, the release of this console actually looks inevitable. This is because Sony usually releases a revised version of every PlayStation generation. Therefore, fans worldwide are eagerly anticipating Sony’s announcement about the PS5 Pro.
The PS5 Pro May Be More Expensive Than Expected
According to the most recent rumor, the PS5 Pro may come with a price tag of £600 to £700. Of course, the revised version of the PlayStation 5 will come with some visual and performance improvements. In spite of that, will these upgrades be enough for the extra cash? It all comes down to the end user as well. As to how many users would actually need the extra upgrade that much in order to spend the extra cash.
Other rumors have also made mention of the launch date of the PS5 Pro. Rumors have suggested that the console will launch in 2024, even though no specified month or day in 2024 is out. So, you may have enough time to prepare the extra cash just in case the rumors turn out to be true. A recent report from altchar.com has also reiterated that the PS5 Pro will cost $700 which should be around £565 in the UK.
