 After all, analysts are not optimistic about the prospects of Sonys digital version of ps5


But according to industry analyst Michael Pachter, this is not the most sensible approach for Sony, especially from a business perspective. In a recent interview with gamenbolt, pachett said that given the cost of the ps5 and the additional revenue that Sony makes for each digital game it sells, it still loses money on each ps5 digital version. Mr. pachet said the average consumer is unlikely to buy enough games to offset Sonys loss.

I think Sony really messed up on this because, as far as we know, PlayStation 5 costs $450 to make, so they dont make a profit on the $500 version, but they lose about $40 on the digital version, he said A CD-ROM is not worth that much. They lost $40, but each number game made $6 more than the others. So players have to buy a lot of games to reverse the cover up loss. I dont think many people will buy so many games.

The analyst went on to say that most consumers will eventually buy a ps5 SKU with an optical drive to get more choices. He added that Sony may reduce production and sales of digital versions.

In fact, I dont think a lot of consumers want to save money, I think most people would rather demand the physical version so that they can choose to take the game to a friends house or sell it second-hand or something like that, says pachett. So I think they messed up on the digital version, but its hard to determine the exact amount in the early days. After all, theyre sold out, and we dont know how many of these two models they made. But I think in the long run, Sony may reduce the production and sales of digital versions. Although Sony didnt make an official statement about this, retailers have made it clear that so far, they have purchased more CD-ROM hosts. In a few months, it may become clear that Sony, at least for now, prefers the optical version of the ps5. Source: 3DMGAME editor in charge: Duan Jiaqi_ NT7312
