Sony typically finalises a console's price in February of the release year, followed by mass production in the spring. However, according to people with knowledge of the matter, Sony is "taking a wait-and-see approach" with the PlayStation 5.
For comparison, the PlayStation 4 retailed for $399 United States dollars and was estimated by IHS Markit to cost $381 USD to manufacture.

With less than a year to go before launch, Sony should have already secured its supply of parts - something which sources confirm, but the only thing that hasn't been settled on is the number of units it'll churn out during the first year. The website iSuppli estimated that the two variations of the console cost Sony over $800 each to manufacture, resulting in the company selling the consoles at a considerable loss. Most cooling units for consoles cost less than a dollar, but "Sony opted to lavish more on making sure heat dissipation from the powerful chips housed inside the console isn't an issue".
Each PS5 will cost around $450 (£345) to make, Bloomberg's sources said - which will affect the price it's then sold at to consumers. It's worth noting that the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak has had no impact on PlayStation 5's production preparations. Although the PlayStation family sells well, 530m consoles in 25 years is a drop in the ocean compared to the 1.5bn smartphones that sell annually.
Sony executives are voicing patience about the next console's pricing as they anticipate the transition to be a gradual one, said people familiar with its day-to-day operations. Sony will apparently be watching Microsoft closely to see what it sets the price of the Xbox Series X at, although that information will likely not be made public for another few months, potentially as late as E3 2020 in June. Indeed, one report says that Series X's SSD may actually be DRAM-less - a first in this market - which could help Microsoft skirt this supply issue, at least partially.
