Microsoft Shares Information About the Sony PS5 Slim in a Court Document

PlayStation 5

The legal battle with the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Microsoft is still on. After all, the judge could not come to a conclusion yet. And with the fight, we are getting insider information about the upcoming consoles. For instance, the Sony PS5 Slim, which Microsoft says will be released later this year.

As a matter of fact, Microsoft has even disclosed the pricing information of the PlayStation 5 Slim. According to the tech giant, Sony will price it at $399.99. That pricing seems reasonable, as the regular version of the Sony PS5 was launched at the same price too.

Now, Why Is Microsoft Revealing Information About the Sony PS5 Slim?

The released document was a part of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) vs Microsoft trial. It aims to determine the fate of a proposed preliminary injunction against Activision Blizzard’s $69 billion acquisition. In a paragraph regarding price, the Xbox makers tried to convince the judge that Nintendo Switch should be considered to be in the same market as the Sony PS5 and Xbox.

Microsoft argues that this comparison helps improve the perception of Xbox’s position in the console market. However, that’s not the main highlight. The final sentence of the paragraph is what we are most interested in. It is the sentence where Microsoft gave out internal details about PS5 Slim.

The final line reads, “PlayStation likewise sells a less expensive Digital Edition for $399.99, and is expected to release a PlayStation 5 Slim later this year at the same reduced price point.” Furthermore, Microsoft provided additional details about the PS5 handheld console in the same court document.
