Sony recently broke the news that the next-gen gaming console PS5 is only a year away. But it had kept the exact release date and its price a mystery. This has naturally given birth to rumours and leaks until the time Sony does not confirm anything further. The tipsters will keep on dropping hints on the new PS5’s price and exact release date till Sony releases the console.
Industry pundits have contemplated PS5 launch to be a mid-November release. But how have they zeroed down? Let us talk about a couple of pointers. Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale always fall in November. They are considered to be the busiest shopping time of the year culminating in Christmas shopping season. Next is the release of Xbox Scarlett which is slated for fall 2020 coinciding with PS5 timeframe. Sony would like to capitalize on the November time frame and counter the competition by shipping a maximum number of PS5 gaming consoles. Seems we have another huge leak at hand.
The leaked news was first shared by Dutch blog LetsGoDigital. It spotted the rumour on the official handle of PSErebus. He posted the much-coveted information saying that PS5 will be launched on November 20, 2020, exactly a year from today. It will be priced at $499 in the United States. He also speculated that the launch should happen before December 2, 2020, the day when 25th anniversary of the PlayStation ends.
Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) will launch PlayStation®5 (PS5™) in several countries in the holiday season of 2020 and will make PlayStation®5 (PS5™) available in North America on November 20, 2020 at a recommended retail price (RRP) of $499https://twitter.com/PSErebus
In another tweet, he has disclosed that “Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) will publish Gran Turismo 7 on November 20, 2020 for the PlayStation®5 (PS5™).” He is the same source who had revealed the release date for The Last of Us 2.
Though the news is exciting, the authenticity of tipster should be taken as a grain of salt. PSErebus account’s track record on Sony leaks, follower count and staying anonymous doesn’t lend credibility to the news. But leaks provide more clues about the mystery.
Though all are expecting from Sony to patch in the missing links of PS5 in its PlayStation Meeting 2020 which will be held on February 12, 2020 at New York.
As we know that the gaming console is already up for PS5 pre-orders through official Sony Retailers in Europe. Get ready to be the first ones to own a brand new game console.
