A leak indicates that Sony would put the PlayStation 5 on sale on November 20 worldwide, although it will be first released in Japan.
Its standard version would cost € 499 and the digital € 399.
Today, the Chinese media My Drivers published leaked information indicating when Sony’s next-generation console would be launched in the market.
According to these data, PS5 will go on sale on November 14 in Japan, while in the rest of the world it would arrive a few days later, on November 20.
The price of both its two versions and all its peripherals have also been indicated.

According to leaked information, both would hit the market on the same day, November 20.
We must still take it as a rumor until there is official confirmation from Sony.
Introductory price of all PS 5 peripherals

Not only the information regarding the launch of the console has been given but also its reservation: Sony would be considering opening the PS5 reservations on September 9, coinciding it with the 25th anniversary of the launch of the first PlayStation in the US market, the same place where it was launched for the first time in 1995.
In addition to this, there is also talk that Sony plans to launch a special event in November to show the design of the internal structure of PS5 and that, moreover, it will announce that the new installment of God of War will be released in 2022.
Sony insists Playstation 5 will be released this year
Although we have to take this information as a rumor or a leak, the truth is that Sony has insisted on various occasions that PS 5 will be launched this year.
Recently Eric Lempel, director of the company, assured in an interview that its arrival on the market would be carried out with the same “magic and emotion” as previous releases.
If we look at Microsoft we can add truth to this rumor: the Xbox company has already confirmed that Xbox Series X will go on sale in November, although it did not specify its exact date.
It could well be the case that both consoles hit the market on a similar date and, if they did so on November 20, their premiere would be one week ahead of Black Friday, which is November 27, favoring the sale of devices such as televisions, sound equipment, and other peripherals.
We will have to wait to see how true these leaks are, also in terms of price, it has been discussed for several weeks given the rumors that Xbox Series X could cost less than PS 5.
