PlayStation 5: Sony does not anticipate a delay, despite the coronavirus

Sony PS5

Sony and Microsoft have already said that the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X will be available at the end of 2020, but will the schedule be maintained given the situation with the coronavirus? The question may arise, especially with potential production problems. Well, Sony has responded and the release date of its console has not changed.

A spokesperson for the group told Bloomberg that it did not see any significant impact on the launch of its console for this year and the release schedule has not changed: still at the end of 2020. For its part, Microsoft has not not yet made a specific statement on the subject, but its site still mentions a launch for the end of the year.

Sony has recently revealed the technical characteristics of its PlayStation 5. The console will be, on paper, a little less powerful than the Xbox Series X from Microsoft. However, it will have a faster SSD. As for the design, it is unknown, whether for the console or the controller. On the opposite, Microsoft has already revealed everything to the players.
