For the customer, the real question is whether the number of #PS5 items will be enough to meet market demand this November

Actual production has just cut by 4 million but the effects will be evident in 2021

IMHO, bit higher price would be needed to balance the production costs
After the recent news about the cut of 4mln PS5 units due the SoC issues, the price may be 499 and 399 to balance the increased production costs, unless production costs have been balanced differently by slowing production after March 2021

So, 449 and 399 are as good as well
Waiting for "you are a liar / clown / etc." after the reveal of #PS5 price if it will be 449 under the tweet below

Sony can't delay the launch of a console, but manage the risks by calibrating the price/production.

The €/$ 50 cut is to give a signal to its competitor that it still want to close the first quarter with a sales boom.

In doing so, Sony is only winning the first round.
After the launch, the production of #PS5 will have to suffer a drastic slowdown for the whole of 2021

Sony will be blocked for at least 3 years having to manage production by exploiting the drop in costs on components to compensate for the initial loss
Both consoles will not make any price cuts compared to the launch price at least for the first 2 years.
In late 2022 @Xbox can afford a possible price adjustment, Sony will waiting for it from 2024, leaving for Microsoft an advantage using an aggressive price just in time for the release on the market of the AAA projects currently in development by Xbox Game Studios
