PlayStation 5 – Possible Release Date, Price Leak

A potential leak on Twitter has revealed a possible release date and price point for the PlayStation 5 console, something sure to further whet the appetite of rabid fans clamoring for the next iteration of Sony’s flagship gaming device.

Twitter user @PSErebus tweeted the following message on Monday, stating that Sony will ship the PlayStation 5 console on November 20, 2020, with a 2TB SSD, and a retail price of USD $499.

When considering the veracity of this ‘leak’, one must consider @PSErebus’ low follower count and unverifiable identity before deciding whether or not to trust this information. However, @PSErebus did originally and correctly leak the first release date for The Last of Us 2, which adds a bit of trustworthiness to their character.

In addition, @PSErebus also posted a follow-up series of tweets in which they lay out their thought process in predicting the release date for the PlayStation 5, based on Sony’s past release patterns with previous PlayStation launches, as well as their marketing strategy for the PS5. While this does not truly confirm anything, it is a strong theory from which to make an educated guess.

Stating that an earlier rumor had placed the PlayStation 5 release date at December 4, 2020, @PSErebus explains why this would make no sense, as it would not fall within PlayStation’s 25th anniversary window.

They then go on to point out that the PlayStation 3 released in Japan on November 11, 2006, and that the PlayStation 4 was then available in North America exactly four days after the seventh anniversary of the PlayStation 3.

In a final conclusion, @PSErebus makes the assertation that the PlayStation 5 will launch on November 20, 2020, as that day is precisely five days after the PS4 release seven years prior, as well as 25 days after the 20th anniversary of the PlayStation 2, and exactly five weeks before December 25.

There is no way to verify any of this information, so readers should use their own judgement and take it all with a grain of salt, but it certainly seems plausible given Sony’s past console releases and their marketing strategy for the PlayStation 5. That alone should be enough to make some fans excited, for it means the world is potentially a mere 365 days away from seeing the PlayStation 5 launch.
