PlayStation 5 price and release date leak ahead of launch

Sony denies potential Playstation 5 'chip woes'

The PlayStation 5 is one of the most awaited consoles this year. First revealed last June, leaks have finally revealed the price of the upcoming console.

Sony kept the details of the PlayStation 5. The launch last June kept the details at a minimum. Only the design and the new DualSense controller was disclosed.

However, eagle-eyed leaker @IronManPS5 tweeted the price of the device. The release date was revealed as well.

These kinds of rumors remain to be untrue unless confirmed by Sony. Based on @IronManPs5’s track record of leaks, his insights were sometimes a miss.

Price and release date

According to rumors, the PlayStation 5 will launch by November 20, 2020. The console will retail for US$499 [AUD$696.73] SRP for the regular version. The digital variant will retail for US$399[AUD$138.23]. This new leak echoed the earlier leaks by other insiders.

However, @IronManPS5 and Roberto Serrano tweeted different launch dates for the console. Either of them may be true, or none of them called the right date.

The good thing about these leaks is it gives gamers a heads up on the release date. It helps in building the hype as the date comes closer.

The leaks also revealed that the console would have 825GB of SSD storage. OS alone takes up 175GB.

Sony might release the PlayStation 5 at a different date though. The pandemic may incite last-minute changes to the upcoming official release.
