PlayStation 5 Launching November 13th At A Solid Price, Analyst Claims

Hold on to your hats kids, because we've got even more PlayStation 5 price and release date rumours for you today. Sony has yet to share these crucial details with customers, leading to increased speculation and plenty of rumbling about exactly when the next-gen console will launch - and how much for.

What's interesting is that while most of these rumours, reports, and leaked retail listings have varied wildly over the past few months, the more recent ones seem to be reaching some kind of consensus. Whether this means the price and release date is genuinely starting to be narrowed down by Sony - which allows for leaked information to become more accurate - or if it's just a coincidence is anyone's guess.


With all that in mind, get a pinch of salt at the ready and consider the latest report. Industry analyst Roberto Serrano, who has been talking about the next-generation consoles a lot, claims that Sony's console will launch on November 13th. Suggesting that his information is "more than just a rumour or speculation," he goes on to pronounce that the standard edition PS5 will be $499/€499, while the digital edition will be $399/€399.

That'd put the standard and digital editions of the PS5 at roughly £447 and £360 respectively in the UK... although it's worth noting that the UK price will almost certainly be more than a straight conversion.

What's interesting is that his information on pricing does line up exactly with a leaked listing posted by a French retailer late last month. The November 13th release date also tracks with a report that Fortnite is launching a special bundle on PS5 and Xbox Series X on November 17th, implying the next-gen console has to launch before that date.

However, it is worth noting that Serrano's information on the Xbox Series X price is at odds with other recent leaks. Earlier this week, journalist and host Alanah Pearce revealed that an anonymous source pointed her towards a retail listing that marked the Xbox Series X at a price of $599, whereas Serrano claims Microsoft's next-gen console will be exactly the same price as the PS5.

As much as I'm sure we'd love both consoles to cost exactly the same, I just don't see that happening... Especially with all the rumours that the reason we haven't heard anything official on price yet is because Sony and Microsoft are aiming to undercut each other. As always, we'll just have to wait for official word, but these claims have definitely left us with some interesting ideas to consider in the meantime.
