The retail price for the PlayStation 5 has leaked online. Tech enthusiast Ben Geskin stumbled upon a listing for the new console on Amazon’s French website, revealing a €499 price for the standard model and a €399 for the digital (disc drive-less) edition, calculating to approximately $560 and $450, respectively.
In addition to the price points, the Amazon page also included a November 20, 2020 release date in France. Unfortunately, however, the listing has since been updated to no longer include the leaked information.
Some have suspected the PlayStation 5 will retail for anywhere between $400 and $500, while others expect the console to be more expensive. Looking back, the PlayStation 4 was priced at $399 at launch. It’s also been reported that PS5 competitor, the Xbox Series X, will cost $399. While this has yet to be announced, insiders predict Sony will likely keep the PS5 price at least remotely close to that of its competitor.
As far as the release date goes, Sony has already said the PlayStation 5 will arrive this year. A holiday launch would hold true to form, as the PlayStation 4 released on November 15, 2013 in the US and November 29, 2013 in Europe.
Neither the pricing nor release date have been confirmed by Sony as of yet, so be sure to check back with us for official info. In the meantime, see what Twitter had to say about last week’s official PlayStation 5 reveal.
