PlayStation 5 price leak suggests Sony’s console will have eye-watering price tag


The latest rumours indicates that the PlayStation 5 could cost almost £100 more than its predecessor, the PlayStation 4




There’s over a year to go before Sony is expected to reveal the PlayStation 5 , but despite that lengthy time, several rumours are circulating about the gaming console.

The latest rumours indicates that the PlayStation 5 could cost almost £100 more than its predecessor, the PlayStation 4.

ProGamingShop , an online retailer based in Slovakia, has listed the PlayStation 5 on its website for €499 (£430).

If this pricing is correct, it’s significantly more expensive than the PlayStation 4, which was priced at €399 (£340).

The product page also suggests a release date of December 4 for the console.

While Sony has previously revealed that the PlayStation 5 will launch in ‘Holiday 2020’, this is one of the first times we’ve seen a specific date rumoured online.

As with most rumours, it’s important to take this price and release date with a large pinch of salt.

Sony has remained tight-lipped about most details, other than the name of ‘PlayStation 5’ and the Holiday 2020 release date, which were revealed in a blog last month.

President and CEO of SIE, said: “Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring.

“Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.”

In the blog, Mr Ryan also revealed some of the key innovations to expect in the PlayStation 5 controller.

The first innovation is haptic feedback, which will replace the ‘rumble’ technology in current controllers.

Mr Ryan explained: “With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field.

“You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.”

Secondly, Sony is including ‘adaptive triggers’ in the controller’s trigger buttons.

Mr Ryan added: “Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain.

“In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions.”
