The official price of Sony’s PS5 might be revealed this week, according to a UK retailer. While Sony already revealed the PS5 and opened the console’s pre-order, it has yet to announce its official price. However, if the latest claim is to go by, it appears that fans will not have to wait that long.
On Tuesday, Game Guildford’s official Twitter account shared that fans waiting for PS5 pre-orders and those who have expressed their interest toSony’s next-gen console need to standby for updates. The account also claimed that the PS5 has a scheduled announcement tomorrow (September 9). Things are about to kick off this week, the account added.
When a fan asked about the claim’s veracity, the retailer told the fan that the information was true. Interestingly, Game Guildford later deleted the tweet, but it has already spread online. A local staff usually manages official social media accounts of the UK retailer, but information such as upcoming promotions usually come from and shared by its main office.
Earlier this week, an official Sony document revealed that the PS5 might work with PSP and PS Vita. The patent discusses the PS5’s compatibility with accessories and implicitly mentions the handheld Playstation devices. The patent also comes with an illustration showing a wide range of accessories compatible with the upcoming next-gen gaming console.
Meanwhile, Microsoft announced the official price of its other next-gen gaming console. It confirmed that the Xbox Series S would retail at $299. The company’s announcement took place following a series of leaks referencing the Xbox Series X’s all-digital counterpart.
Rumors have it that Microsoft might reveal the Xbox Series S anytime. Other insiders also believe that an event where Microsoft would announce the specific release date and price of the consoles is imminent. The same could be said about Sony.
With the Holiday 2020 release window fast approaching, the Japanese gaming giant could make the much-awaited announcement anytime. It is worth mentioning that while these details about PS5 price announcements are exciting, these are not official. In this case, it is wise to take the information with a pinch of salt.
