PlayStation is a Japanese video game brand that consists of five home video game consoles, as well as a media center, an online service, a line of controllers, two handhelds, and a phone, as well as multiple magazines. The brand is produced by Sony Interactive Entertainment, a division of Sony, with the first console releasing as the PlayStation in Japan released in December 1994, and worldwide the following year.
The series also has a strong line-up of first-party games due to Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios, a group of many studios owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment that exclusively developed them for PlayStation consoles. In addition, the series features various budget re-releases of games by Sony with different names for each region; these include the Greatest Hits, Platinum, Essentials, and The Best selection of games.
Leaks of PlayStation 5
PlayStation 5 launch event had everything the fans wanted, except for the pricing. Reports and rumors regarding the price of the new-gen console made rounds all over the internet. Now it appears that we might actually have got the pricing for the Sony console. The leak comes from Amazon France who listed the PS5 with the release date and pricing. They have since taken down the listing.
The gaming console was accidentally listed on Amazon France. A tipster in the region managed to grab a screenshot revealing the potential price of the product. If the screengrab turns out to be genuine, the console was spotted with a price tag of 499 euros (roughly ₹42,700). The listing also reveals the launch date to be 20 November
The Digital Edition was priced 100 euros cheaper at 399 euros (Roughly ₹34,200). The Amazon France listing did not have any information about the prices of the peripherals that were launched along with the PlayStation 5 earlier this month.
Is it Expensive?
PS5 was touted to be an expensive console. The numbers that were rumored were pretty high. This news would come as a relief to many. It is expensive compared to the previous generation, but it brings a lot to the table.
The digital edition is cost-friendly. Then again, there are only a few who still use discs. PS5 has backward compatibility, which would make it convenient, given the fact that PS4 users would surely have all the discs lying around.
PS5 vs Xbox Series X
This could be the potential price of their products. People were of the opinion that any price above $500 would be too much for the console. Maybe, Sony will cut down the price before launch.
Xbox Series X is also yet to reveal its price. If they go for an affordable price, Sony will be faced with tough competition. This very Amazon leak has at least shed some light on what the pricing might be like.
