As for the price of PlayStation Neo, many have argued that it will be equal to the price of PlayStation 4 at launch. However, considering that Neo is a much more powerful console than the standard version, it would be absurd to see a slightly higher price for the new console.
Instead, the price of the PlayStation 4 Slim was estimated under $300 for a matter of competitiveness compared to the counterparts of Microsoft Xbox One S, whose 500GB version is always priced $299.
