PS5 launch date and price

There have been a lot of speculations around the pricing of PlayStation 5 as the company continues to withhold information. According to a Bloomberg analyst, the PS5 may cost anywhere around $470 (over ₹34,000 approx); however, it is believed that this will change as Sony is reportedly not sure yet of what it will charge on its next-generation console. As of now, it is only known that it will certainly exceed Playstation 4's price at its launch. This is because the components are quite expensive, and the console comes with a lot more power.

The PlayStation 5 is slated to arrive during Christmas 2020; however, it is believed that the release date may change due to the coronavirus outbreak.
