  • Why does this PlayStation exist? Sony just started making the PS4 again, even years after the release of the PS5!

    • Blattobender
      Blattobender Month ago +13

      Because the chip shortage made it so people are still playing there old systems and inflation has something to do with it too and not enough of a catalog of new games you can’t get on the ps4 that’s just imo

    • sarrai !
      sarrai ! Month ago +3


      SPARTAIN WARRIOR 64 Month ago +2

      Because the ps5 is in short supply because of limited components they started selling PS4 as it’s much easier to make

    • Absolute King of anime
      Absolute King of anime Month ago

      ​@SPARTAIN WARRIOR 64but here's the problem there has never been a chip shortage there was 2 years ago a import shortage cause you know COVID border lock downs,
      Plus these bundles are BRAND NEW as in just 3 months old new. Which use the same components as a ps5 (material wise not part wise)

    • Zayn
      Zayn 27 days ago

      the actual reason I found from other videos was that it's a marketing scheme, an old generation ps4 is $350 but if you just add $50, you get to game on the newest gen. $399 doesn't seem so expensive for new gen, does it?

  • Benji
    Benji 2 months ago +2594

    The reason for the price is because it comes with 1TB of storage, double the amount of storage the regular slim has, plus cod games have raised up in price

    • Ritsu
      Ritsu 2 months ago +48

      Yeah As an Australian mw2 is $100 so they would have to make it more expensive

    • Benji
      Benji 2 months ago +14

      @Ritsu yeah pretty sure they have increased the price in most places by 20%, its a shame

    • Micky B.
      Micky B. 2 months ago +41

      I don't quite understand, my ps4 slim has 1tb storage and it's years old now.

    • Chronic X
      Chronic X 2 months ago +25

      if you look on the packaging of the console it says 500gb. so no, that’s not the reason for the price.

    • Benji
      Benji 2 months ago +14

      ​@Chronic X I just double checked the one he unboxes is the 500gb one but the one he shows the price of clearly says 1TB so I'm still right, makes me think that if he is biased towards Xbox he showed the price of the 1TB model to make it seem Sony increased the price of a normal ps4, kinda scummy if that is the case

    Back when demand was high for PS5’s, Sony said to offset demand they would increase production of PS4’s. Some speculated this was due to the fact PS4’s use parts which were more readily available than whatever is needed to make a PS5

  • B

    It's $299 for 1TB PS4 at Target. It's business 101. Covers the low/med/high price points: $299 for a PS4, $399 for digital PS5, or $499 for disc PS5. The real question is, why does this video exist? PS - I enjoyed your acting in the three Spiderman: Home-something movies.

    Affordability is a large point with what they're doing, yes to the outside it may look expensive but factor what you're getting. In my country, cod is 90$ so getting that and a 1tb storage drive is pretty worth to me. (Also with a simple screwdriver set the slim is easily the most comfortably maintainable console)

    • Twekion

      I thought maybe it was a marketing gimik. Like someone would want a ps4 but then see that a ps5 is only a 150 bucks more, and the ps5 has more benefits so they would buy the ps5 instead. I mean that's if your in an area where there not 1000 dollars. Idk maybe I'm over thinking it.😂

    340-60 dollar game = 280 ps4. It’s an okay deal. But I remember selling Spider-Man ps4 at target for like 200 and that was 2019-2020
