PlayStation 5 Release & Repair - TDR - National Repair Center
Without a shadow of a doubt, many people have speculated what the PS5 will look like! Everyone has come up with many ideas of the new system, However all we know are just a few facts.
The PS5 system will be backwards compatible with at least the PS4 games. It was said that it is backwards compatible with the 3, 2, and 1 games, this is going to be awesome... Most retro system players want to see this happen. Especially the ones we repair retro consoles for. Now it is not cheap to repair systems, even though we are the cheapest, This will definitely reduce the retro repairs. Retro modding will still exist though as far as we know no one has any mods for the PS5 system, let alone know what it looks like.
At what price point will the PS5's start shipping? That's a non-conclusive argument. We have seen in the past that the original systems do get released for $399, Special editions, add an extra $100-200 on-top.. Now the PS4 Pro is released at $499, so We will assume that they will up the ante this time. $599 + for the PS5 doesn't sound too ludicrous compared to the history of releases.
When will the PlayStation 5 be released?.. let's look at the history of releases. and almost all the time the releases happen during Christmas time and the holidays. that's when all the gift giving is going to happen and that's when lots of parents dish out the money. Christmas 2019? or 2020? possibly more 2020 why do you say so? well... there are PS4 games that are yet still to be released and anticipated. and the money has not been sucked out yet. Big corps are notorious for sucking every last dime before releasing the new thing.
The new thing always makes the "old thing".. PS4 Pro will no longer be Hot stuff. and therefore all the rich and wealthy or poor and greedy will go out there to buy the latest and "greatest" ... great times to come! However with the recession to hit soon .. who knows maybe the sales will not be so great in the first few months and they might drop the prices.
So they ask us, Tech Device Repair, Will the PlayStation 5 also need repairs... absolutely! there is no tech device in the world that doesn't need cleaning and repair, it is part of planned obsolescence. All CPU chips attached with RoHS compliant solder, will always need to be repaired. That is not all, Dust, Water damage, and insect infestations are very common with gaming systems.. No worries we will be here at the cusp of it all repairing your next generation PlayStation 5 when it does break!
