PS5 box contents reportedly leaked

The latest PlayStation 5 leak gave us a glimpse of the box for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Editions, using dealer lists that show what the boxes were inside. There doesn’t seem to be any surprises in the boxes, however, as the purchases include the typical gear you’ll need to get started, as well as a pre-installed version of the Astros playroom to give you something to play with immediately when you need it.

Daniel Ahmad, Senior Analyst at Niko Partners, published two different offers for the PlayStation 5 on Twitter this week, which were obtained from a retailer in Hong Kong. One listing was for the PlayStation 5 and the other was for the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, but apart from the different consoles and model numbers included, there are no notable differences.

The contents of the boxes are listed below. The differences in parentheses depend on which console you are purchasing.

Contents of the PlayStation 5 box

  • Model Number: CFI-1
    015A (CFI-1015B for Digital Edition)
  • Box content:
    • PlayStation 5 console (or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition)
    • Wireless control
    • 825 GB SSD
    • base
    • HDMI cable
    • Power cord
    • USB cable
    • operation manual
    • Astros playroom

Ahmad noted on Twitter that the listing was from a Hong Kong retailer, so some of the details above may be region-specific.

The leak is nowhere near the most interesting we’ve seen on the PlayStation 5, but it’s also one of the more tangible as we actually have listings and model numbers for what’s included in a PlayStation 5 purchase. Previous leaks have tried to expose things like the consoles’ release dates and their costs, which are much more pressing questions, but we don’t have the answers to those questions yet. Microsoft announced the release date and pricing information for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in particular earlier this week. So it shouldn’t be too long for Sony to post the same information. It’s likely that prices will be similar, if not exactly the same, to what Xbox announces, but that remains to be seen until Sony releases more information.

The release of the PlayStation 5 is planned for Holiday 2020.
