Rumor | Supposed PS5 premium and basic starter pack SSD storage sizes and prices revealed in new PlayStation 5 hearsay
A recent post on Reddit by u/Daniel_mallorca1985 has claimed that there will be basic and premium PS5 “starter packs” offered by Sony for the next-gen console. The only differences mentioned between the two packs so far are the storage amount of the SSD and unsurprisingly the price. Apparently, the basic PlayStation 5 package will come with the widely known 825 GB SSD while the premium offering will give gamers a chance to get hold of a 1.65 TB SSD.
The same post offers up prices for the two PlayStation 5 starter packs: The basic pack is priced at €499 (US$540) and the premium setup will allegedly cost €599 (US$648). It’s possible a premium PS5 pack could contain other tempting enhancements for buyers over the basic version, although nothing specific is mentioned beyond the increased SSD storage capacity. The supposed prices seem reasonable to believe, although they could be significantly reduced if Microsoft ends up trying to undercut Sony.
The original poster states the source of this information as a meeting between Sony executives and managers for GAME, which is a large UK-based game retailer. Some have questioned why the prices offered for the two PS5 packs would be mentioned in Euros, however, GAME does have operations in Spain too, so if this ends up being a genuine leak that could explain the € prices instead of £ prices. As usual, any PS5 rumor should be taken with a pinch of salt, but a 1.65 TB SSD would be an attractive option for fans to be able to select.
