I'm a first time console buyer. I've checked the prices of the PS5 and new Xbox and they cost like 235k and 135k respectively. My question is, would these prices down? Do console prices usually come down in Pakistan? I've never bought a console in my life.

Thanks!

Yes they will come down eventually, but in the launch window (and up until a long time in 2021 I reckon) they won't come down because of the global scarcity of shipments.

Yeah they will come down around March next year I checked with my bother in UK its the same bots buying PlayStation bs over there as well they are all sold out...just get a ps4 pro if you need something to tide you over till then you might lose a few thousand in the process and better appreciate when you finally get the upgraded hardware.

Local retailers are giving it the same treatment as to a newly launched iPhone. The prices will come down, for sure, my guess is by Jan 21. It wont take that long this time, the retailer market has grown a lot more competitive than it used to be.
Right now the cheapest option is to go for Jshak or any other premium sellers at PG (thank God we have them btw). Last I checked, Jshak's selling it for ~125k.
Ideal is to get it delivered by anyone coming from abroad - if you're lucky.

You have 8 years to buy a new console. Why you want to be an early adopter anyways? Do you even have a 120HZ 4K display. If you have it than there is no problem going for a little expensive console. If not than PS 4 Pro is all you need for most of next year.

    Hitman 3 runs better on a 2060s then on a ps5
    Hitman 3 is the first major multiplat game that seemingly runs worse on the PS5 compared to the Series X.

    Good thing its all on game pass now
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    but yes, for a single player only game, it was maybe priced high at $60. Didn't stop me from getting it and the season pass which mostly went useless anyway lmao

    RE7 and Amnesia weren't the same length, not even close.
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    but yeah Medium doesn't look like its worth the full price tag
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    that just makes RE7 over priced when indie studios were making equal length games
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    Well, most people won't be paying full price for medium either
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    Amnesia and soma weren't full prced games iirc
