Article Edited by | Jhon N |


The PlayStation 5 is set to be released at the end of this year. Sony first revealed the PlayStation 5 in an unveiling event earlier this month. The company gave us a first look at the PS5 console, along with a slew of next-generation games, and several of its first-party accessories. Unfortunately, Sony has not yet announced the price or release date of the PS5 so pre-orders for PS5 have not yet gone live. but Sony confirmed that those details are coming.

If you want to be one of the first people to pre-order the PS5, a number of retailers have opened sign-ups to notify people when the pre-order PS5 will be available.

The PS5 reveal event gave us an initial look at two different versions of the next-gen console from Sony.

We got our first glimpse of some official, first-party PS5 accessories during the PS5 reveal event. Sony has unveiled a new headset, remote media, controller-load dock, and camera. Prices have not been revealed. Unfortunately, we have not learned if PS4 accessories from third parties will be forward compatible with the PS5.

Best Buy, Target and GameStop all currently accept sign-ups for people who want notification. Walmart's landing page also went live after the PS5 reveal event, but at this time, it does not accept sign-ups. It is currently unclear when the pre-order date for the PS5 will be, and since no information was revealed in Sony's livestream on June 11, pre-order information is likely to come later this summer, and pricing is expected. The coronavirus pandemic may have caused the pre-order date for the PS5 to be pushed back because of stock concerns.

Sony has confirmed a release window for PS5 called "holiday 2020," although the exact release date has not yet been revealed. For console releases, November has been a frequent month in the past but nothing is confirmed beyond the fact that PS5 is still releasing in 2020.

Unfortunately, we don't know the price point for the PS5 yet. Both PS5 models were revealed during Sony's event, though neither was awarded a price. Sony said pricing and other details will come "at a later date" in a press release following the event on June 11. Sony has stated in the past that the price of PS5 will be "attractive to gamers" because of its specs.
