Since Microsoft published the details, pre-order and availability dates and prices for the upcoming Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles, Sony is now responsible for doing the same for the upcoming Playstation 5 game console. While we already know the design of the latter, the pricing and availability details are everyone’s business. However, a new leak reveals the contents of the box of the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition.
Daniel Ahmad, Senior Analyst at Niko Partners, has released a screenshot of the box contents of the upcoming Sony consoles. He says the alleged listing was from a Hong Kong dealer. With the exception of the console itself, the content is the same for both variants, at least in Hong Kong. Additional components included in the scope of delivery are a DualSense controller, an 825 GB SSD, a stand base, an HDMI cable, a power cable, a USB cable and a user manual. Astros playroom will be pre-installed on both PS consoles.
Although a Bloomberg report indicated that Sony could almost double its PlayStation 5 production to meet growing demand, pre-order registration, which was initiated last month, was by invitation only. The new DualSense controller is also expected to identify players based on the way they hold the controller and log them into their respective PlayStation accounts.
Gamers in India are also eagerly awaiting Sony to bring their new consoles into the country after Microsoft announced that the new Xbox consoles will hit the Indian coasts on the same day as their global launch.
