PlayStation 5: Tech Experts Give Prediction On Exact Release Month For Sony's New Console
Sony's upcoming PlayStation 5 will 'most likely' launch between October and December 2020, according to technology experts.
The Japanese company has previously confirmed that the highly-anticipated console, which was announced in 2019, will release "in time for holiday 2020."
And one leak in November last year suggested that the PS5 could launch on 20th November and retail at $499 in the US.
While the date and price from the well-known PlayStation leaker have not been officially confirmed, experts believe that it could be the month that the console is released in.
TechRadar cited the rumour and insisted that they also expect the next-generation console to arrive in November.
The publication added that November is 'historically when we've seen PlayStation consoles launch' and the release window would 'leave time before Christmas to get those orders in.'
Sony's current home console, the PlayStation 4, was released in North America and Europe in November 2013.
And the PlayStation 3 launched in Japan and North America in November 2006, with Europe and Australia receiving the console in 2007.

Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO and president Jim Ryan announced in April that the latest console would officially be called the PlayStation 5 and would arrive in holiday 2020.
The Japanese company dropped the first official look at the PS5's design during the Future of Gaming event on Thursday.
Following the event, Sony confirmed in a press release that they would "announce pricing and additional details for PlayStation 5 at a later date."
Sony has revealed two different versions of the PlayStation 5 so far as one features a Blu-ray disc drive and the other comes without it.
When asked about a price difference between the standard and digital-only version of the PS5, PlayStation CEO Ryan told BBC: "You're not going to hear anything on price today.
"But many of our [...] consumers are purchasing solely digitally these days. We thought that we would do what we typically try and do, and just offer choice."
