It won’t be long before Sony finally confirms the official release date and price for the PS5. The company will be tying up all the loose ends of the console during the PS5 showcase on Sept. 16 – but that hasn’t stopped the flow of PS5 price leaks – we’ve seen that over the past few months.

Even if the price is high, this is likely more of a good estimate than based on previous information.
However, if the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition prices are $ 499 and $ 399, respectively, Sony would put Microsoft on par with Microsoft in terms of price for its flagship next-generation console, but also give consumers a PS5 at a cheaper price as an Xbox offer Series X – even if it is the digital edition. While the Xbox Series S is cheaper again at a staggering $ 299, we now know that the cheaper Xbox doesn’t offer 4K at 120 fps – like the PS5 Digital Edition.
The good news is we won’t have to speculate long on PS5 price leaks as we expect Sony to announce the cost of the next-gen console during the PS5 showcase event on September 16.
