Most of the gamers have been waiting for the prices to come down for the PS5 but so far it is stuck at 165K for the disc version and 120K for the non disc model. Most gamers in Pakistan would prefer to get their hands on the disc version because buy and selling of discs is a hot thing here in Pakistan.
There was some speculation that after a few months price would go down to around 100K or 120K for the disc version model of the PS5 but that only sounds like a myth right now.
There is no shortage of the supply for the PS5. There are a lot of scalpers to be found who are selling the model on facebook community pages, OLX, whatsapp groups and other websites. Those who can afford to pay around the 165K mark are giving up waiting for it and simply getting the latest console.
While PS5 might not have a strong gaming lineup at the moment but soon there will be games coming out on the PS5 which will not be available on PS4 and PS4 Pro models. There will be graphical downgrades for regular games and some updates simply not coming to the older models while developers adjust to the latest console.
So the conundrum still remains whether to wait a little bit more for the PS5’s price to go down or simply giving up and buy the console right now. I would say if you can you might as well get it. Or if you are someone like me still saving up for it then wait for the best games to come around on the PS5 which will not be available on the older consoles. Then go for it. 🙂
