According to the latest rumors, Sony will open pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 on September 9th. We cannot yet confirm or deny this data, but today Sony launched a website where you can pre-order the new console.
PlayStation 5: Sony is preparing to open pre-orders of the new console
Now there is no possibility to place a pre-order, but there is an opportunity to leave your data in order to participate in a kind of lottery. The fact is that, as Sony warns, there will be a limited number of PS5 consoles available for pre-order, so the company will be inviting some of its existing users to be among the first to pre-order the new console. Yes, in order to apply, you must have a PlayStation Network account.
Sony also says that pre-orders are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so those wishing to get the console before everyone else should complete the order. True, all this is so far only for the United States. Similar sites are likely to appear in other regions in the near future.
PlayStation 5 price spotted in France – not as expensive as many smartphones
Sony’s fifth-generation gaming console, PlayStation 5 will be officially available this fall. This device will have two versions. There will be a model with a built-in optical drive that can read game discs like the PS4. Also, there will be another model without the optical drive and only supports digital games. Otherwise, the two models have the same configuration. They both come with a Zen2 architecture custom CPU and RDNA 2 Micro-architecture GPU.
According to the company, the floating-point speed of the PS5 is 10.28 TFLOPS. This is close to the VEGA64 graphics card and is about ten times faster than the PS4. Although we know that the PlayStation 5 will hit the shelf this fall, there is no official price listing for now.
It is reported that PS5 is expected to be released in the holiday season at the end of this year, and the price is unknown. A new listing of the PS5 in France reveals the price details of this device. Also, there is information on the pre-order date for this device. According to Carrefour, the PS5 without an optical drive will sell for 399 euros ($471). However, the optical drive model will go for 499 euros ($589). According to Carrefour, the pre-order for the PS5 will end on October 3rd. However, we all know that the PS5 will probably not hit the market before November. This puts a question mark on the credence of this information.
