Will we see the PS5 price and release date? Sony won’t say, other than that it will give us another look at games for the PlayStation 5 in an online-only event after midnight on Wednesday – due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This includes PS5 launch titles and other PS5 games that will be released in the months and years to come. Many analysts predict that it’s essentially a ploy – or marketing hype, as you see – to create a huge reveal about how much the PS5 and PS5 Digital Editions will cost and when they will be available worldwide.
All signs point to it, especially now that Microsoft was the first to blink about the console price and next-gen release date in a seemingly forever-waiting game. We already know what to pay for Xbox Series X (Rs. 49,990) and S Series (Rs. 34,990) in India, when they will be available (November 1

PS5 expected price in India
A Bloomberg report earlier this week claimed that the PS5 will cost $ 449 (about Rs.33,000), while the PS5 Digital Edition will be available for under $ 400 (about Rs.29,500).
Of course, India prices will be much higher due to taxes, duties and import fees. Based on previous launches, we think this would bring the PS5 to around Rs. 44,990 in India and the PS5 Digital Edition possibly around Rs. 39,990 which is also pretty close to Xbox pricing. Mind you, these are very rough estimates.
PS5 is expected to be released in India
Sony previously indicated that the PS5 would launch in November. And with the Xbox Series X and Series S going to be out on November 10th, the PS5 is expected to be a week or two before that date. Or maybe the same day, November 10th. We could know in a couple of hours.
