PlayStation boss Jim Ryan has shot down reports claiming that Sony was considering higher price points for premium first-party PS5 games at launch, but couldn’t say anything about what future titles may cost. Demon’s Souls is among the more costly games for the new console, clocking in at £69.99.
PS5 Game Price Hike Rumor Shot Down By PlayStation Boss
Asked about the report during an interview with The Telegraph, Ryan made it clear that the price murmurs were completely false.
I can say that that report that we were considering higher prices for first party games is categorically false.
When it was suggested by the interviewer than Naughty Dog’s first PS5 game would cost £70, he replied:
I’m not making any predictions about anything that might or might not happen in the future. I’m saying that the reports about discussions that we considered higher pricing for first party games in this launch window were categorically false.
The PS5 is due for release in the UK and Europe on November 19.
