According to new rumors, Sony could offer its console PS5 on the 20th November next, from 399 euros.
Made official a few days ago now, the PS5 Sony will be available in two models, with one side a offers 100% digital with the version ” Digital “, and the other, a PS5 more classic, equipped with a Blu-Ray player 4K. On the rate side, it would seem that the future console of Sony will take the path of the PS4 and not the PS3…

The PS5 from 399€ ?
In fact, some may remember, the PS3 was launched at a price tag of 599 euros. Despite an enormous expectation on the part of the players, the commercial launch was a dismal failure, and Sony had no other choice than to quickly drop the price of its machine, by reducing to the passage of certain functions (backward compatible PS2, card reader…). On the side of the PS5, point-of-fare in the stratosphere on the horizon (a priori), since Sony would have opted for an entrance ticket set at 399 euros.
499€ for the PS5 with Blu-Ray player 4K
Obviously, this rate would be for the PS5 ” Digital Edition “. On the side of the PS5 equipped with an optical drive, the bill would increase to 499€, or 100€ more than the PS4, Pro and Xbox One X to their output. However, it should be noted that these rates are not official, and that they come from some leaks from Amazon, as well as some ” insiders “. It will therefore be necessary to wait for an official announcement from Sony to pre-order his PS5.
Nevertheless, the rates of 399 and 499€ seem the most plausible, in the sense that it would allow Sony to display its PS5 ” from 399€ only “, while maintaining an edition with optical drive, is the one that will be preferred by the players, at a rate acceptable (499€ so). Indeed, beyond the critical threshold of 500€, Sony risk, as at the time of the PS3, to see the players turn to the back, waiting for a price drop.
In regards to the availability of these new PlayStation 5, everything suggests that Sony should offer its consoles in shops from 20 November. Recall that Microsoft should also offer its new Xbox Series X at the end of the year, with a launch that could occur a few days before/after the PS5. Prepare your money…
