With the current financial crisis will people really shell out for the initial pricing for PS5? I doubt it. I really think game developers should go into a new market; educational software for online teaching. I'm sure the developers would be able to build software that is much more educational, and interactive and more entertaining and productive than a teacher fuddling around with his camera and holding up cardboard signs or writing on a blackboard.

Titles like the foreign-made video games like "Ghost of Tsushima", the Sony Xperia II helped their sales and also their movies section with everyone on lockdown!

With the current financial crisis will people really shell out for the initial pricing for PS5? 

Absolutely.

Demand for just one title alone (Gran Turismo 7) will be enough to see through any delayed uptake caused by 'initial pricing'.

Sony is a foreign-owned company long ago.

If it wasn't for foreign executives, Sony would have gone under like Toshiba.
