I can see them mirror the launch of the PS4 Pro, to a degree. The PS4 launched at $399 in 2013 and by the time 2016 came around the PS4 price had dropped and they launched the PS4 Pro at $399.

This time, they launched the PS5 with 2 models, a $399 discless one and a $499 disc one. Now we have the rumor that they'll launch a revision next year that's discless and that'll be the new base model. If the PS5 Pro isn't due until holiday 2024 then I could see a scenario where the base model is offered at $349 or $399, and the PS5 Pro is offered at $499.

There's no reality where a PS5 Pro is sold at $699.
I can see 599 but that would be the absolute maximum.

I seriously doubt you will get an official price cut ever. That's what makes this rumor sketchy, as mentioned the margins are better on the disc console as it is. The only real reason to do this is if you don't have the production capability to do 3 consoles at once.

The Pro could be $599, But if it's $599 I think it's not going to be that big of an upgrade. That's why I said $699. You have to make it worthwhile to people to buy it over the standard console.
