Microsoft finally gave in and revealed the release date and price of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Will Sony follow suit with a major reveal for the PlayStation 5?
Up until now, Sony has been pretty tight-lipped about new details regarding the PlayStation 5. Fans have been longing to see its release date and price, but it seems like Sony is far from doing that for now. However, we do have something else to check out while waiting for the big reveals.
Box inclusions revealed
Industry insider Zhuge Ex gave us a glimpse of what comes in the box of the PS5’s package. The model numbers for the standard and digital editions are also revealed. However, the insider notes that these codes could be exclusive to Hong Kong.

The package inclusions for the Standard and Digital Edition are the same. Aside from the consoles, there will also be a base, an HDMI cable, and AC power cord, a USB cable, an instruction manual, and a copy of Astro’s Playroom already pre-installed on the console.
Astro’s Playroom is basically a tech demo that’s supposed to show off the capabilities of the DualSense controller. It allows players to fully experience the immersive controller through and through. Both consoles are also equipped with a powerful 825GB SSD.
Reveal coming soon?
Now that the box inclusions for the PlayStation 5 – it’s standard and console version have been revealed, fans are expecting the release date and price to be shown soon as well. Microsoft’s reveals for the upcoming Xbox were a surprise.
Although both consoles have already been unveiled months back, it took a while to show off the pricing. Many speculated that each is waiting for the other to provide a more competitive price. Microsoft’s $499 and $299 consoles may have already set the pace for the next generation.
The next generation of the PlayStation is set to launch during the holidays. Many are speculating that a delay is imminent. However, Sony seems like it’s already intent on making sure the release goes off without a hitch aside from that fact that there will be limited supplies at launch.
The PlayStation 5 could be the most anticipated piece of tech launching this year. A lot is expected from Sony’s next-gen console. There are also a lot of exciting titles lined up for launch. Hopefully, Sony reveals the price soon so that we can finally save up for the upcoming console.
