PlayStation 5's Release Date And Price Have Reportedly Leaked Online
A PlayStation leaker has dropped a bombshell over the potential release date and price point of Sony's highly anticipated PlayStation 5.
Twitter user PSErebus has a record of leaking PlayStation-related news and revealed the initial release date for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II.
And PSErebus, who claims that PS5 could support titles from Sony's past four home consoles, has suggested that the new machine could land in North America on 20th November.
According to the Twitter user, the PS5 will launch at a retail price of $499 in the US.
"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 $499," PSErebus tweeted.
If the PS5's US release date is to be believed, then European players could also receive their hands on the console before the end of the month.
After all, Sony dropped the PlayStation 4 first in North America on 15th November 2013 before it was released in Europe on 29th November.
But the current console did retail at £349.99 in the UK and $399.99 in the US, which means players could be forced to drop more money on PS5.
Sony announced in October that the PS4's successor would officially be called the PlayStation 5 and would launch in holiday 2020.
And PlayStation CEO and president Jim Ryan revealed that he wants PS4 users to quickly transition to PS5.
"As we move towards the next generation in 2020, one of our tasks -- probably our main task -- is to take that community and transition it from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, and at a scale and pace that we've never delivered on before," Ryan told GamesIndustry.biz earlier this month.
