Can't wait for the Series X.
A guy is leaking what is, according to him, PS5 pricing.
$499, €499 and £449 for PS5
$399, €399 and £349 for PS 5AD
If this is true, Series X should be $399, €399 and £349 to be competitive.
Is this what you expect? If you ask me, yes but I expect PS 5AD to be 50 and not 100 cheaper.

This is probably going to happen. The AD version ties the owner for life of the generation to only the PS Store. Apparently Sony makes an extra 8$ per purchase off PS Store (compared to physical) so after buying 8-9 games this gap is covered.
I think series X will price itself next to normal disc version of PS5 at 499$ but if Microsoft wants to really hurt Sony's chances they can sell SX for 399$ (but then the question remains on how to price Lockhart that it stays relevant).
It appears that Microsoft's huge focus is just increasing GamePass subs. Hence the recent sales on One S and One X for really subsidised prices. In that case SX for 399$ is not impossible.
@BrilliantBill Yes that's right, Sony will get all the software sales from their own shop so I also think that a 100 difference is not out of the cards but then Microsoft should release Series X for 400.
Another website reporting the same prices:

@BlueOcean I’m expecting a repeat of the Xbox One X and S price structures. With the Xbox series X being the same price the Xbox One X launch at 499$. I would expect to the Lockhart to be the same as the cheapest Xbox One S at launch 299$. I would expect the Xbox series consoles to supersede the Xbox ones rather than be sold alongside them.
As for the PlayStation I have no reason to disagree with your $499, €499 and £449 for PS5 and $399, €399 and £349 for PS 5AD. I would expect them to discontinue the PlayStation 4 pro and continue selling the PlayStation 4 slim for around $249 has a HD console to compete with the Lockhart.
@Ryall I also think the current consoles will be discontinued and then sold on heavy discount until supply dries up. But they can always be sold for some very affordable prices bundled with several big hits games to bring people into the respective ecosystems.
Pricing PS5 Digital at 399$ is probably all the "loss" and "sacrifice" Sony is ready to make to sell the consoles. It will be really interesting to see how all of this plays out in sales numbers in the end.
@BrilliantBill Yes, it's very interesting. Xbox One X have sold out already on Microsoft.com (US). Now it's time for Series X to match PS 5AD price because the real competitor of PS5 and PS 5AD is Series X. If leaks above are true, PS 5AD is 400 so that's the price to match.
