Because of the course it will be expensive.
On the night of June 12, Sony officially presented the console of the new generation of PlayStation 5. Sony showed games and accessories for the PlayStation 5, but did not name the price of the console, leaving intrigue for many fans. Nevertheless, the latest rumors directly pointed to the most likely price of the PlayStation 5. Based on it, we calculated the possible cost of the PlayStation 5 in Russia.
PlayStation price in Russia
According to recent leaks, the price of the PlayStation 5 in the US will be $ 499. Such a price appeared including on Amazon. Amazon officials said an error occurred. However, experts predicted this price of the PlayStation 5, so the leak is definitely worth paying attention to.
How much will the PlayStation 5 cost in Russia in this case? Direct transfer from dollars to rubles in this case does not work. As always, there will be an extra charge, which includes taxes, customs and other fees.
For example, PlayStation 4, released in 2013, cost $ 399 in the United States, and 17,990 rubles in Russia. The dollar then amounted to 32 rubles. The mark-up on the Russian cost of the console was exactly 30%.
A similar margin occurred on the PlayStation 4 Pro, which was released in 2016. In the US, she went for the same $ 399, and in Russia for 34,990 rubles against the backdrop of the dollar appreciating to 62 rubles.
Knowing the margin (30%) and the current dollar exchange rate (69 rubles), it is easy to calculate the most likely price of the PlayStation 5 in Russian retail. The console price will be about 45 thousand rubles, including all taxes and fees.
Of course, this is only an approximate forecast. Everything will depend on the pricing policy of Sony, the ruble exchange rate at the end of the year and the original US price of the PlayStation 5.
Recall that the release of the PlayStation 5 will be held at the end of the year – in November or December.
