Sony Playstation 5 Release Date
Industry analysts have speculated that the new game system won’t be ready until 2020. However, the pace of technological advancement is quickening and there is fierce competition between Microsoft and Sony to be the next to put a popular game system in the market. We will be watching closely to see whether the PS5 will have its first Black Friday in 2019, or 2020.
April 2019 Update: According to an announcement from Sony, the earliest the Playstation 5 will hit store shelves is May 2020. It is still more than a year away from launch. However, we have gotten leaks identifying some of the details already. The PS5 will be compatible with the PS4 as well as Playstation VR. It will also have support for 8K resolution graphics. Features include SSD storage, 3D audio, an eight-core CPU and a custom AMD Radeon Navi GPU. The name of the new platform hasn’t been officially released but we are continuing to assume that it will follow the series and become the PS 5.
PS5 Price Speculation
The regular price of Sony’s next generation gaming system is projected to be $399 but it could be positioned as high as $499. This $499 price point would indicate its place as a premium gaming system and reflect the new technology that it incorporates. It will probably see discounts of between $50-100 from its regular price on its first Black Friday and Cyber Monday, depending on the package and possibly an additional discount when there is a bundle of games purchased together with it. Competition via the release of another big video game system may also drive the price lower.
Ad Release Dates
We already know that Sony, Best Buy, GameStop and several other stores will be announcing big sales on the Playstation 5 over Thanksgiving weekend when it hits the market. The release of Black Friday ads is moving earlier and earlier as it could soon be as early as September when the first ad is leaked to the market. However, it seems likely that the electronics retailers will continue to wait until November so that their competitors don’t have time to match or beat the amazing prices and gift cards they are offering to buyers.
We know it is at least months if not years until the PS5 hits Black Friday deals. But when it does, we will be bringing all of them to you here. It is a virtual certainty that the retailers will be competing to bring shoppers the best price as doorbusters to get the dollars in the door. Stop back soon to continue to get updates when they are available for posting.
