Are You Willing To Pay $500 For The PS5 ?

It's like waiting for an eternity for Sony to announce their pricing for the PlayStation 5

At this point, most people have already made up their minds in regards to purchasing this next-gen console.

Sony knows the demand is there for the PS5, and despite the downturn in the economy, people are willing to shell out some serious cash for the console.

But we still don't know exactly how much it will cost, and neither do we know a precise launch date as of this writing.

On Best Buy's PS5 pre-order notification page, if you scroll to the bottom, you'll see a limited time: 18-month financing option.

Now, this option is for purchases $499 and up, which leads me to believe the PS5 will be included.

It's still a shot in the dark assumption, but at least it's something to go by.

I can put money on it, betting that this console will be sold out, despite sony's production increase.
